What happens if you give one of the bitter healing items to a Pokemon holding a Soothe Bell? --Ketsuban

Even better question: What happen when you give a Pokémon that likes bitter food the bitter herbs? PsychicFile:Ani475MS.gif Agent 448δ | DP Fighting 12:55, 21 October 2007 (UTC)
As for the first question: Giving bitter herbs are negative events so the Soothe Bell won't help there...
Second, it's a different type of bitter, like earwax bitter. No one likes that kind. TTEchidna 20:18, 21 October 2007 (UTC)

With evolution based on happiness, does the evolution occur when the happines level is reached, or when the pokemon grows a level at that happiness rating? --Mooresnakes 17:13, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

The latter. Tina δ 17:24, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
Thanks, i just looked down at the bottom of the page and i noticed it said that under pokemon evolutions. Sorry! --Mooresnakes 17:27, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

What happen at the happiness if I trade my pokémon? --I.megaphone 15:46, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

It resets the happiness. File:Ani197MS.gifMidnight CelticFile:Ani148MS.gif 15:56, 3 January 2008 (UTC)

How the hell do you make a pokémon happy in Gen II? I know the methods, but it's almost impossible =S Hfc2x 03:46, 10 April 2008 (UTC)

You smack it over the head until it learns it either has the choice of being happy or being beaten with a stick. MasterRichmond 02:53, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

An observation on egg hatching

"When a Pokémon is still in its egg, its happiness value is ignored and the happiness value is used as a decrementing step value that triggers the egg hatch when it reaches zero." Unlikely - Cheat search couldn't find any values in RAM that decreased by any amount each step. Also, if "decrementing step value" means the happiness value is subtracted from a seperate counter (which I couldn't find), why do higher values give longer wait times? On 50, the egg would "take a long time" to hatch, while on 1 it was almost ready. --Kyoufu Kawa 18:18, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

I'm an idiot. --Kyoufu Kawa 19:34, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

Justification Request - "positive event"

I was just wondering, what exactly constitutes to fulfilling the term "positive event". Is it simply all of the things that are above the statement which increase happiness or are there (other) specific things? --Arpaleggia 22:12, 14 August 2008 (UTC)

Generation II Happiness Checking

Quickly putting: is there anyway to check a Pokémon's happiness in Generation II games? It'd be useful to know at least wether my Pokémon are at maximum happiness or not. -- Professional Mole (Talk here) 13:28, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

There's a lady in Goldenrod somewhere. The Dark Fiddler - Nos hablamos? 13:32, 29 December 2008 (UTC)

Herb Items

I have two Ambipoms, same level, same Attack IV, same nature and same Attack EVs. I got them to from trade because a friend of mine had borrowed them. One has Frustration and the other one Return. I gave 10 Energy Roots to the first and walked less than 200 steps, and the second one, I did nothing but walk around (a little).

I used them in PBR, against the same Pokémon and Return caused much more damage than Frustration, but I thought Frustration should be meaximum power.

Can anyone explain? - unsigned comment from Diby esp (talkcontribs)

Sorry, I forgot to sign Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 20:35, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Try again in a handheld version. Stadium‐style games tend to keep happiness at a specific value for all Pokémon. IIMarckus 21:03, 20 January 2009 (UTC)
Thank you! =) Ok, I will. By the way, the one with Frustration was holding a Silk Scarf =D Gabriel Rocha (Diby esp) 21:06, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Healing Items and Drink Items

In Generation IV, do these two types of items that help Pokémon recover HP have different Happiness bonuses? I am asking because I have heard/read this from somewhere some time ago, and I would like to hear from Bulbapedia regarding this. Thank you. --HechEff 12:20, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

I think its, stat vitamins, like Protein and Iron greatly boost happiness. Other items somewhat boost happiness, and herbal medicine lowers happiness. That's all I can think of. I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 12:23, 24 January 2009 (UTC)

Evolving a Golbat in pseudo-Gen I

Can Golbat evolve in Fire Red or Leaf Green before I have the national dex? If it does and its not in the Kanto dex does it end up being one of those Pokémon that doesn't have a dex number, kind of like a few of them that I traded from Colosseum on the Wi (in cube mode) into Sapphire on the GBA, before getting the national dex? Iliekmudkips 23:52, 5 February 2009 (UTC)

It won’t evolve. The Pokémon will glow but then return to normal, with text saying “…?”. IIMarckus 01:33, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
