...but have you noticed most G/S minigames are for pokemon that can evolve with happiness?
Not only, after winning the "Who's the champ" thing, do you get coins, but any pokemon, it appears, that is your own and you have used it will be happy. I'm assuming, although I havn't tested, that this is a way to increase Happiness more easily.
Nintendo thinks of everything, eh?
