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

It evolves into Chansey when leveled up while holding an Oval Stone during the daytime, 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. There is a pouch around the lower half of its body, which resembles a diaper. 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 a white, Egg-shaped stone in its pouch to imitate Chansey and Blissey. It may give this stone to people whom it likes, and 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.

Major appearances

Brock's Happiny

Brock's Egg hatched into a Happiny in One Big Happiny Family!. Unusually, in contrast to Happiny's extremely low Attack stat in the games, she has amazing strength and can run with, pummel, and carry many heavy items and Pokémon for its size, such as having the ability to fling her Trainer into the air with ease and carrying Ash's Grotle around in Jumping Rocket Ship!. She evolved into a Chansey in The Brockster Is In!.

Trivia

  • Happiny bears a resemblance to a hoax Pokémon that was created on April Fool's Day 2005.
  • Happiny is the only Pokémon that evolves twice by leveling up under certain conditions, once by holding an item, and again with high friendship.
  • Happiny ties with Chansey for the lowest base Attack and Defense of all Pokémon, both at five.
  • Excluding Arceus, Happiny and its evolutionary family have the most in-game items associated with them, with four: the Lucky Punch, Lucky Egg, Luck Incense, and Oval Stone.

Origin

Happiny shares some characteristics with infants, such as its soft skin and diaper-like pouch.

Name origin

Happiny is a combination of happiness and tiny or teeny. It may also derive from happenstance, referring to chance.

Pinpuku may be a combination of ピンク pinku (pink) and 福 fuku (good fortune).
