I've seen so many people asking why their Pokemon aren't evolving when they have max affection. This topic is just here to let them know that Pokemon-Amie affection and friendship/happiness are two completely different things. Happiness is gained through winning battles, walking around with your Pokemon, giving it vitamins, massages, and the like. Amie Affection is only raised through Pokemon-Amie. So far, the only Pokemon that is currently know to evolve through Amie is Eevee into Sylveon.

This is the first Pokemon game in a long while for a lot of people (I've seen tons of people who haven't played since Red and Blue) so it's kind of understandable that they may not understand that there is a difference.

While it's quite clear that affection and happiness are two different stats, I do find it strange that playing games, feeding and petting your Pokémon doesn't increase friendship at all.
Blah.

There's no proof the two stats aren't related. Are we even sure what level of affection evolves Eevee?

Yes Eevee to get to Sylveon requires at least 2 hearts of affection, and it also must know a fairy move.

Also uh I'd say the fact that you can have max affection and 0 happiness, and vise versa proves the stats aren't related. Also they have entirely different effects in battle. Namely affection doesn't effect return for example while happiness doesn't boost your pokemon's battle experience.
I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me
