How to Evolve Happiny to Chansey to Blissey (Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl)

This Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl guide contains information on how to catch Happiny and evolve Happiny into Chansey, then how to evolve Chansey into Blissey.

Players will need to catch Happiny to obtain Chansey. This is because Chansey can not be encountered in the wild. If you haven’t caught one yet, we explain how to catch Happiny below.

How to Catch Happiny

Happiny can be caught easily from Hearthome City. Walk to the bottom-right corner, next to the Route 209 entrance. Here, you will find a bearded man. Talk to him and he will give you an Egg that will hatch into a Happiny — eggs will naturally hatch once your player has walked enough steps.

Besides this, there is another method for catching a Happiny. Players must navigate to the Pokemon Mansion on Route 212 and then walk to the Trophy Garden in the backyard. There is a small chance of encountering a Happiny in the grass located within the garden.

How to Evolve Chansey into Blissey

To evolve Chansey into Blissey, players must increase their friendship level. The most effective way of doing this involves obtaining a Soothe Bell and then equipping Chansey with it. Start walking with Chansey, and make sure she doesn’t faint in battle. Doing these will raise your friendship level over time. Once high enough, Chansey will automatically evolve into Blissey.
