Happiny (Japanese: ピンプク Pinpuku) is a Normal-type baby Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Chansey when leveled up while holding an Oval Stone during the day, which evolves into Blissey when leveled up with high friendship.

Biology

Happiny is a small Pokémon that is shaped like an egg. It has a soft, smooth, light pink body. On top of its head is a curly outgrowth that resembles a ponytail, with a dark pink band around the base. The appearance of this curly growth of hair often annoys Happiny. It has three round bumps on its forehead and two pink circles on its cheeks. There is a pouch around the lower half of its body. The pouch is red with a white stripe around the top.

Happiny's pouch is rubbery and flexible, enabling the Happiny to put things into it with ease. As it cannot produce Eggs yet, it makes up for it by carrying something round and white in its pouch to imitate Chansey and Blissey, typically an Egg-shaped stone. Happiny highly treasures this stone. It may give this stone to people whom it likes, however, it can throw a tantrum and cry should the stone be taken from it or not returned to it. The object it decides to carry may be too large, stopping this Pokémon from moving. It has a habit of wandering around people's feet and causing them to stumble. Happiny is shown to be extremely strong in the anime, as one has been seen lifting heavy things above its head. Happiny is a female-only species with no male counterpart.

Sun It carries a round white rock in its belly pouch. If it gets along well with someone, it will sometimes give that person the rock.
Moon It's too small to lay eggs yet. As a surrogate, it searches out round white stones.
Ultra Sun Usually it's a well-behaved Pokémon, but if you take its round rock away, it will cry and fuss and throw a big old tantrum.
Ultra Moon When it sees something round and white, Happiny puts it into the pouch on its stomach. It sometimes becomes overloaded and can't move.
