What does snuggling the pig do

monster-hunter-3-ultimate

In the farm, there is a pig which I have the option of snuggling. Every time I do so, it just knocks me down and runs off into the woods. Is this all that ever happens? I just want to be friends.

It's a running joke among the community that snuggling the pig before every mission increases your luck, but in reality snuggling the pig doesn't do anything except make the pig like you (which has no in-game effect). It's just something extra the developers added into the game for a little fun.

The reason the pig keeps running from you though is because it hates you. You really should snuggle it more often so it doesn't think you're a heartless pig hating robot.
