Does the Pokemon affect resource gathering?
When in the field, some resources require you to throw Pokemon at them to collect, such as berry trees and ores. I'm not very far into the game, but so far, it seems like any Pokemon I've thrown can collect it. But is there some benefit from using specific options? For example, would a rock or ground type maybe offer more from ores?
There’s no evidence the Pokémon type changes the resource gathered, at the present time.
However, some things do:
- Which area you’re in. Further areas, particularly Coronet Highlands and beyond, get iron instead of some of the stone regularly.
- Glittering ores give bonuses such as iron and stardust.
- Shaking trees and ores give more resources once you defeat or capture the Pokémon that comes out.
