You'll then need to go to Amity Square to be being given the option to walk any one of your cute Pokémon. For Amity Square, though, it can’t just be any Pokémon but one that is commonly recognized as "cute."

Once you've walked around with your chosen Pokémon in the park, you'll unlock the ability to have any Pokémon from your party follow you outside.

  2. Select the Pokemon section of the menu.
