Effect

In battle

If the holder becomes infatuated, the Pokémon that the holder is in love with becomes infatuated as well.

Outside of battle

From Generation VI on, if held by a Pokémon in a Day Care, Nursery, or during a picnic, any Eggs belonging to the Pokémon that are found will inherit 5 of their individual values from both their parents, rather than 3. This means only 1 IV will be random.
