Two Chansey pushing a hospital bed
The first time a Chansey appeared under Joy's ownership was in Pokémon Emergency!. Two Chansey wheeled Ash's Pikachu into the emergency room after he was injured badly from a flock of Spearow Ash was protecting Pikachu from.
Several Chansey have appeared more prominently than others. Another Chansey, in The Joy of Pokémon, traveled on a kayak with her Nurse Joy from island to island to treat injured Pokémon.
Matsuko, Takeko and Umeko
Jessie of Team Rocket once befriended a Chansey, which later met again, having evolved into Blissey. She appeared in Ignorance is Blissey.
The Nurse Joy of Lake Lucid has three Chansey that are nicknamed (Japanese: マツコ Matsuko), (Japanese: タケコ Takeko) and (Japanese: ウメコ Umeko).
Kanto Battle Frontier
The one owned by the Nurse Joy in Overjoyed! was not only a good nurse, but a good battler as well. She was able to defeat Ash's Corphish in an informal battle the two had.
Nurse Joy and her Chansey in the Best Wishes series
Following Ash's arrival in Unova, Audino were featured instead of Chansey as Chansey was not native to Unova.
One of them was used in SS025 where she was used under the ownership of a PIA Nurse Joy. She battled Brock's Sudowoodo at the Pewter Gym. Sudowoodo fell for Chansey's Attract and was defeated with an Egg Bomb; not laying a single hit.
After a long absence, another one appeared in SS027.
Personality and characteristics
Chansey is similar to her Trainer, Nurse Joy, as both are caring and nice to Trainers and Pokémon. Chansey usually assists Nurse Joy when a Trainer comes in and escorts the Pokémon on a stretcher. Despite being caring, Chansey is able to hold her own in battle.
