On the support page of the pet screen, it says “in a supporting alliance, a 5-star pet gives support even when not in a team”
Did anyone know what this means? That if you evolve a pet to 5 stars, it activates others support abilities even when not on the team? Or is a supporting alliance something that only takes effect in certain game modes?
That’s exactly how I expect it to work and nobody has disputed my pet example post that covers it.
I can also offer some recent evidence to show that it works that way. My Bonsai pet is 5-stars, is not on any of my teams, yet is still activating the reflect damage support abilities of some of my rare pets (that requires the Bonsai to be on the team).
So, I’m very confident that it works the way you ask.
