In Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, all Pokémon are connected one way or another, and the “Connection Orb” will show you just that. It’s a new system that lets you see the relation between your Poké buddies.

The Connection Orb will show you the Pokémon you’ve met, and the ones you’re connected to as well. When you look at the connected Pokémon, you’ll be able to see things like what they’re worrying about, and if you solve it, they’ll become your friends. And you’ll also get to see Pokémon that your new friends are connected to.

Sylveon is the first Pokémon you’ll become friends with. You’ll find her lost in a forest that looks kind of scary.

As you advance through the story, there will be more and more Pokémon that appear in the Connection Orb. If you see a Pokémon that you like, you can work your way towards them and help them solve their problem and have them join your group.

However, the Mythical Pokémon Hoopa is an exception, as it appears in a dungeon. There’s an item called “Warlock’s Pot” which you acquire from somewhere in the world of Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon. Once you use it in a dungeon,Hoopa will appear and help fight against monsters in the dungeon.
