What is a ‘lovey-dovey’ Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet: The Teal Mask?

The answer is a Pokémon from both Paldea and Kitakami

A couple in Kitakami wants a “lovey-dovey Pokémon” in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet: The Teal Mask, but they don’t tell you what it is beyond that it’s “lovey-dovey” and “always together.”

The answer here isn’t even a DLC-specific Pokémon, though you will need the DLC to find the couple and get the reward. The couple are both right behind the community center in Mossui Town.

The answer to the ‘lovey-dovey’ Pokémon request is ... Tandemaus or Maushold! Obviously, these lovey-dovey mice that are a two-in-one (or three- or four-in-one) Pokémon are never separated, so it makes sense!

Just show a Tandemaus or Maushold to the couple to get your reward and solve this little side adventure. You just have to show them the mice — you’re not giving the Pokémon to them, so don’t worry about losing your beloved mouse family.

After showing them your maus, they’ll give you “Heart (Right) emote” and “Heart (Left) emote” to use with friends. It’s not a pose for your selfie photo mode, but you can get friends to take pics of you together in the poses. Access the poses by pressing up on the D-pad.
