Fluffruit Effects

The Fluffruit is a throwable item much like the Illumina Orb. The Fluffruit combines the functionalities that were present in the prequel's PKMN Food and Pester Ball items. Depending on how you toss your Fluffruit, you can feed, redirect, or even scare wild Pokemon away.

Fluffruit will lure nearby Pokemon toward it and cause them to be distracted while they eat it.

When tossed onto the ground, Fluffruit will catch the attention of all nearby Pokemon, but not all Pokemon will take the time to eat it. Some Pokemon might also have unique eating animations which might net higher photo scores!

As Pikachu approached the Fluffruit offered, they instead shifted their focus to this shovel that looks eerily similar to the shovel on Sandygast's head!

Throwing a Fluffruit near a Pokemon can grab their attention. You can use this to slowly guide them towards other points of interest.

You can toss a Fluffruit near a Pokemon by pressing the B button to lure them in and take their photo while they eat it. You can throw multiple Fluffruit at a time, which allows you to lure in multiple Pokemon for a groupshot.

A Pokemon takes approx. 3 seconds to consume a Fluffruit, followed by approx. 2 seconds of celebration after eating.

Tip: Use the Camera Focus As A Guide

The indicator in the center of the screen can help you aim.

The Fluffruit is thrown at the direction your camera is pointed at. Remember to point the white circle at where you intend to throw it. Aim higher when throwing further away, and aim lower when throwing closer to the foreground. Getting the hang of throwing Fluffruit will be key to repositioning your subjects for better shots!
