What if there was a Pokemon Affinity System?

I'm not sure if this would work....it seems a too situational and specific to really work that well. Not every pokemon has an obvious relation to another pokemon, you would have a heap of pokemon who have no preference towards any other pokemon.
I feel like it would work better if pokemon on your team could have friendship/bond values that could be increased (like the current pokemon to trainer friendship levels) between each other. So that having a team that gets along well would give your pokemon boosts and other advantages.
It makes sense in a way, trainers have always had friendship with their pokemon but there isn't much said about how the pokemon on your team get along. They might as well never interact with each other.
So I think you're on the right track, but it needs to be part of a bigger system and not just between two pokemon in a battle.
