Chansey then helped heal Team Rocket's Pokémon and Meowth. When Team Rocket battled Ash and his friends, Chansey prevented them from doing so and as Chansey cared for Arbok and Weezing earlier while they were injured, Arbok and Weezing refused to fight Chansey. After all the Pokémon were healed, Dr. Proctor and Chansey waved goodbye to Ash and his friends.

In Overjoyed, in an attempt for Ash to warm up for his rematch against Brandon, Nurse Joy decided to battle Ash with her Chansey in May's place while Ash sent out his Ash's Corphish. As none of Corphish's attacks did any damage to Chansey, Chansey went on to defeat Corphish with Solar Beam. After the battle, Chansey and Nurse Joy took Corphish to heal up on a stretcher. When Team Rocket watched the battle, they were interested in Chansey because of the fact that she was strong. They did so by having Wobbuffet disguise himself as a Blissey. Team Rocket was able to grab Chansey but Chansey easily defeated Team Rocket. Afterwards, Chansey watched Ash's rematch against Brandon.

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, first evident in Overjoyed! where the one owned by the Nurse Joy was not only a good nurse, but a good battler as well. Chansey was able to defeat Ash's Corphish in an informal battle the two had as a result. During that battle, it was shown that Chansey, along with Nurse Joy, were more fierce towards opponents. After the battle, they revert back to their normal selves.
