How to Earn or Unlock Affection Hearts in Pokemon Go?

Affection hearts can be earned by doing various activities like walking, playing, battling, and more with your buddy Pokemon. Depending on your Buddy’s mood you can earn anywhere between 10 to 20 hearts a day. So the maths is clear here, you will have to earn around 150 Affection Hearts to upgrade your Buddy to Ultra.

After you reach the Ultra buddy level, Your buddy will randomly give you a Souvenir. You can collect them in a similar fashion to how you claim your presents. But unlike the presents, you cannot use them like consumables. You will typically receive 1 Souvenir a week. Each Souvenir is connected to your Buddy, so switching a buddy will show you a separate collection for your new buddy.
