you can also pet your pod on PC by moving the mouse around
What about with a gamepad controller?
such as Logitech controllers and the like
OMFG just pet my Ps4 touchpad, didn't even know about that. CUTE!
9S briefly pets then fistbumps his. The Pod then says "Report: Affinity Increased". This is great.
Is there any meaning/point in petting your pod, aside from being nice to it?
Being nice to your pod is the point, kinda like petting a dog/cat.
Is there any benefit to achieving max affinity though? The pod says "This POD will protect 2B with its life" does it get any combat bonuses?
I found a Pod D in the abandoned factory. Can anyone else confirm?

Pod D? I know you can find a pod program in a downed pod there in route C, but I haven't heard about a full blown pod. What did does it shoot?
I bet 2B wants the Pod D ( ͡º ͜ʖ ͡º)

Is it not possible to get Pod B during Route C? I fished for it for a while as A2 and didn't catch it.

It's all luck based. If you keep at it you (should) eventually get it.
Just gotta keep going at it, took me like 30 tries before I got it
They are a live saver on higher difficulty, remember to pet them after a tough boss fight.
I caught a pod in the Flooded city fishing off the building with a hole in in it facing north dwards warterfall. I also caught a pipe weapon in the tunnels of flooded city. I found a pod in the desert, chillin' on a dune.
