Buddy Skills are equippable skills that increase certain stats or traits of your buddy. They have a variety of effects, from increasing their own attack and defense, to making them more resistant against certain status effects, to giving their attacks more knockdown capabilities.
All buddies start with a set of eight skills that can be seen right away, but some will only be equippable after the buddy reaches a certain level. To equip a skill, it takes up a certain number of Skill Memory points from the buddy. There is no way to alter this set of skills; you must get new Buddies if you want other skills.
Your buddy starts at three skill memory slots at first. You unlock your fourth skill memory slot at Level 10, and your fifth skill memory slot at level 25.
Interact with a Buddy Board found in the Village, Guild Hall, or the Buddy Plaza, and then select Buddy Skills, the second option in the menu.
You can select which type of buddies whose skills you want to edit. This isn't too important, as when you're at the menu, you can switch between Palicos and Palamutes using the R and L shoulder buttons.
You can activate which skills your buddy will have for the mission. Select a skill and notice the Skill Memory squares get filled up the number of diamonds next to the skill you select. Continue until you fill up all Skill Memory slots.
