Original series


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.

Orange Islands

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).

Advanced Generation series

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.

Diamond & Pearl series

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.

Best Wishes series

Following Ash's arrival in Unova, Audino were featured instead of Chansey as Chansey was not native to Unova.

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.
