Something i have always been wondering about was...what exactly is the chance of getting an item from your partner? I know that the chance increases together with affection but i would be happy to see some actual numbers :3c

You have a 1 in 500 chance of getting an item every hour at base affection. At max affection, this chance in 1 in 475. With Hari+Nao, it's 1 in 455 at base affection and 1 in 200 at max affection.
Unless Shiro changed the numbers...

really? i could have sworn that i'd read somewhere that it was a (510-affection) chance for most partners.
(not a source per se, but shiro concurred so i guess it's true??)

...and then in the course of looking it up, i found this

Note that the 1/25 chance of receiving an item from Hari & Nao only applies at max affection. I believe it's 1/95 or 1/125 to begin with...

which doesn't work unless hari and nao use a different formula than the other partners. so, uh.

That one topic is quite old, I guess the numbers were changed sometime after that (actually, it says "field", so that must've been back when there was no partner mail feature and partners found items on the map)... It's a 1 in (350 - affection) chance for every partner (1/95 at maxed affection) with the exception of Hari and Nao, where it's a 1 in (280 - affection) chance (1/25 at maxed affection). Here's the post where partner mail was introduced.

I thought it may be wrong, since I could have sworn max affection put it around 1 in 100 for most partners...

I'm sorry if you don't need these messages anymore and I'm just taking up space. As for Rei and Hari & Nao, I'm including their messages for confirmation that it was still the same for the attached items. And, this is just a guess, but I think Lyrit's mailed messages changes along with his affection level.

Spoiler: show
Quote:
Yun
Message: Durin Berries are quite bitter. Most would find them unappealing, but I am sure you can find some manner of use for it.
Item: Durin Berry


Quote:
Ash
Message: This is a... uhh... Figy Berry. Want it?
Item: Figy Berry


Quote:
Rei
Message: This is good to give to Pokémon for... frolicking.
Item: Wave Incense


Quote:
Hari & Nao
Message: ...I found this.
Item: Water Stone, Qualot Berry


Hope that helps. :)

*appears in a Ninja like fashion*

Question about Yun that has me confused:

It says +1 spent every time you spend $200 at a story but does it accumulate?

I.E I spend $190 at the store for a pokeball so the next time I buy it would Yun gain a point or do I have to spend $200 in one shot?

Hope that quesiton wasn't to confusing.......

You must buy 200PD of stuff in one shot.

For example, say you buy one Pokeball for 190PD. His affection doesn't raise. (190/200 = 0.95 = 0)
You buy one Pokeball for 190PD now and one for 190PD later. His affection doesn't raise. (190/200 = 0.95 = 0 for both exchanges)
You buy two Pokeballs for 380PD at once. His affection raises by +1. (380/200 = 1.9 = 1)
You buy ten Pokeballs for 1900PD at once. His affection raises by +9. (1900/200 = 9.5 = 9)
You buy a Great Ball and a Pokeball for 760. His affection raises by +3 (760/200 = 3.8 = 3)

It always rounds down, and it doesn't add up between visits.

Do you know if Bel still gets a 30 point increase in happiness for stealing items from caught Pokemon now that there's a 10% chance of each Pokemon caught holding a berry?

Actually, that needs to be updated.
With the boost in chance of finding an item, the affection increase was dropped to +20 instead of +30.

Something on Allen:
This Guide:
Quote:
However, there are no effects on 6, 8 and 10 hour berries.

Guidebook:
Quote:
There's no effect on berries that take less than 10 hours to grow


According to the Guidebook there would be an effect on 10 hour berries, because they don't take less then 10 hours to grow

Hari/Nao and Ash were updated in November and Lyrit/Bel were tweaked statistically (though not sure if that's listed in your guide?) Source: here.

Hari/Nao have a higher chance of giving an item to 1/20 at max and Ash no longer gains affection from fished up pokemon, basically.

Is it possible to make it clearer that you get the chance of having your partner send you an item once per hour? When I read the guide for the first time I took it as once per day. (The main forum guidebook has the same issue, it only states there is a 1/[x] chance and not how often it is checked.)
