Nurse Joy's Audino (Japanese: ジョーイのタブンネ Joy's Tabunne) is a Pokémon owned by almost every Nurse Joy in the Unova region as well as some in the Decolore Islands and the Kalos region.


Nurse Joy and her Audino

Best Wishes series

Unlike the Nurse Joys of Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Kalos, the Joys of Unova do not use Chansey or Wigglytuff as their helpers, since they are not found in Unova. Instead, they use Audino. The first Nurse Joy seen with an Audino appeared in Dreams by the Yard Full!. They serve the same function as Chansey, helping Nurse Joy take care of Pokémon, including carrying them around on stretchers and helping to heal them. They wear hats that have the same color as the Nurse Joy they work for.

In A Venipede Stampede!, the Nurse Joy of Castelia City used her Audino to help calm down the Venipede that were attacking the city with Heal Pulse.

Two of Nurse Joy's Audino were among the seven Audino controlled by Team Rocket in Where Did You Go, Audino?. In the end, the two Audino joined the others in releasing a burst of elemental attacks at the villains.

XY series

In XY095, a Kalos Nurse Joy who used an Audino instead of a Wigglytuff was introduced. Despite the two constantly arguing with one another, they were still close enough to allow Audino to Mega Evolve with the Audinite that Joy had recently discovered. Using its new power, Audino helped to defeat Team Rocket, who were trying to steal all the Poké Balls from the Pokémon Center.

Personality and characteristics

Like almost all Pokémon helping Nurse Joys, Audino have been shown to have caring and helpful personalities, ready to assist their human partners in helping injured and sick Pokémon.

In XY095, an Audino was shown barricading the door to the treating room due to reasons caused by Nurse Joy, much to Joy's frustration.
