A new feature in the games called Pokemon-Amie (amigo?) was introduced in the new promotional video today. It allows you to interact with your Pokemon a bit like NintenDogs. It helps your bond with your Pokemon grow stronger and I'm guessing it will help Eevee evolve to Sylveon.

What do you think about this feature and will yo be using it?

lol "amigo" Wrong language

"Amie" is "friend" (feminine) in French. They're just going further with the French influence in-game.

I'll definitely be using it. I think it's great; I always found NintenDOGs wasn't fit as a 100% game on its own (more like a mini-game) so I never bought it. Waste of money. If it's semi-integrated into Pokemon, then that'll be fantastic <3

I assume this is the new bonding system they were talking about. I think it's a nifty little feature, it will help to evolve those Pokemon that require maximum happiness too.

This is more than likely the new bond feature that many people were talking about for a long time now. I like it! The fact that you can interact with your Pokémon in more ways than just having them following you (Yellow, DPPt, and HG/SS) and actually be able to feed them and pet them is a cool touch. It may certainly help when it comes to evolving some Pokémon like Eevee, Riolu and others. I definitely plan on giving it a go. Hopefully it's as good as it sounds and looks.

I'll use Pokémon-Amie feature! That sounds like fun that we could interact with Pokémon like this.

It's a pretty good use of the new 3D graphics, something I'd hope they'd do - to be able to actually interact with your own Pokemon is a really nice touch.

I hope bonding actually makes Pokemon stronger, as that's what the whole universe is suppose to be about... Like Pokemon Conquest's bonding system.

It should at least bring some brief enjoyment. Hopefully it does actually add to a pokemon's happiness as that will make a lot of evolutions easier than they currently are.

Certainly a good substitute for Nintendogs if nothing else as well.

Like Livewire said, it's a good use of the new graphics too.

The feature reminds me of the Dream Eaters feature in Kh 3D...considering how much time I spent on that I can already see how much time I'll be spending on this...a lot of time.
I like the follow feature, it seems sort of unique for these kind of mini games.

Honestly, this is something that's a long time coming. I love this feature, and being able to actually interact with your Pokemon in this manner is something that I've been looking forward to for a while. At least hopefully this would serve as a replacement for the Follow Me feature that HG/SS had, since people were used to bonding with their Pokemon that way. :x

Would be cool if we could have both in a future game.
Also I love the linguistic bonus in the name of it, as amie is French for friend and this region is based on said nation .

This seems good as finally we get to treat pokemon as pets and not just 'I catch you, you follow every command I say and get beaten to a pulp by other pokemon'

I expect lots and lots of scratches incoming on my 3DS XL's bottom screen's screen protector. Who knows? Maybe I'll use this because I find it adorable.

Finally a feature that makes Pokemon less like robots, I hope this makes it easier to obtain evolutions that need Happiness but I don't want to take my Pokemon to poop every 5 seconds like in Digimon World

This seems pretty neat.

It might even replace the pokemon following you feature as something that makes us more attached to our pokemon.

At last I can pet and feed my Pokémon! It's a dream come true! You can even give them high-fives~ And they react to your real-life facial movements! It's all so great! <333

It looks like an awesome feature, and one that I'm ridiculously excited to try out! :D I've wanted something like this ever since the Pocket Pikachu haha. Like several others have said, it will be cool to be able to treat our Pokemon as pets for once.

This is the feature that has me most excited about X/Y. I'll admit that I'm a huge sucker for virtual pets, and this is just perfect. It's a lot like NintenDogs (which I did buy because PUPPIES!), only this isn't the whole game. I can travel around the main game with my Pokemon, and then at the end of the day just cuddle them and play games with them.

Between this and the Pokemon turning to you in battle as they wait for your command, it's great to finally see the creatures they proclaim as our "best friends" in the game as actual creatures instead of battling robots.

Pikachu was so adorable wanting you to follow its directions~

I - quite literally - cried with happiness when I saw this feature. ;W; This is something I've always wanted, ever since the beginning! I get attached to my Pokémon as-is, and with this feature I'll be able to have a bond with them! ;w;

Oh, so many feels.

The title is even more of a play-on-words than I've seen mentioned so far (if someone mentioned and I didn't see it, sorry! D: ):
"Mon amie" is French for "my friend." (Feminine form)
PokéMON-AMIE. They worked the whole phrase, not just "friend," into it! The French student in me is elated. 8D

Amie is probably one of the nicest things that could happen to pokemon games Its amazing and I'll use it as much as I can! I've also got a strange feeling we might get new Pikachu's split evolution using Pokemon Amie <--- Its just me maybe xD

Somebody gets it! Most people didn't notice "Mon" was part of the wordplay!

It's so Clever!

The Follow me feature is graphically challenging to do and take time away from other features. Pokemon-amie allows us to interact with our friends in a separate view. They won't join us on the overworld map, but this is a good compromise.

I hope we can add riddons or something to make each one look unique!
