Brock's Happiny (Japanese: タケシのピンプク Takeshi's Pinpuku) is a Pokémon that Brock hatched from an egg in One Big Happiny Family!. She is the second baby Pokémon Brock has caught, after Bonsly, and the second egg he took care of after Togepi. She is the overall tenth Pokémon Brock has ever caught. Her Japanese voice actress is 伊東みやこ Miyako Itō and her English voice actress is Emily Jenness.

History

Brock won Happiny's egg in a Pokémon cosplay contest in All Dressed Up With Somewhere To Go! by entering his Croagunk dressed up as a Politoed. He was overjoyed to take care of the egg, as he showed in the next episode when he rubbed his cheek against it affectionately.

In One Big Happiny Family!, while traveling on Cycling Road, the egg began to glow. After taking it to a Pokémon Center and receiving assistance from Nurse Joy, the egg hatched into Happiny. Soon after birth, she began crying for a stone to hold as a fake egg. Brock found a white stone and polished it into an egg-like shape for her. Team Rocket snatched Happiny away before he could give the stone to her. Eventually Happiny was returned to Brock and received her "egg". Immediately after, she offered it back to Brock as a sign of friendship. He gave it back to her and then captured her in a Poké Ball.

Like most baby Pokémon, she became very attached to her Trainer very quickly. She was upset when taken out of Brock's care, and refused to cooperate with Team Rocket completely. Unlike Bonsly, however, she did not cry and fuss; she actually fought back against Team Rocket's Pokémon after Brock had been hurt: Happiny quickly knocked Meowth, Mime Jr., and Wobbuffet out of her way and flung Jessie's Seviper by the tail so she could get back to her trainer, who she then launched several meters into the air.

Happiny has a cheerful personality, and is playful and energetic. Rather than walking, she is usually held in Brock's arms, much like Misty did with her Togepi. She also is sometimes seen sleeping or playing with Sudowoodo. Sometimes she was seen riding on Pikachu's back, as seen in A Maze-ing Race! and A Lean Mean Team Rocket Machine!.

Happiny's strength

Happiny has extraordinary strength for a baby Pokémon. Examples of this appear in Bibarel Gnaws Best!, where she carried many heavy boulders, and in A Maze-ing Race! and Crossing Paths, where in both she lifted and threw a big boulder. She saved Team Rocket, Dawn, and their Pokémon from falling in Journey to the Unown!, and saved Brock and Autumn from falling off a bridge by hurling them high through the air to the other side of it in Tanks for the Memories!.

She was also seen walking in Canalave City whilst lifting Ash's Grotle with one arm in Jumping Rocket Ship who was comically tired due to its new form. She was also able to stop Dawn's Piloswine from rampaging in A Breed Stampede! with help of her strength. Later, on Leading a Stray!, when Mamoswine tossed Dawn up into the air, Happiny caught her just in time.

The only times where her strength was not enough were in Leading a Stray! (where she tried to pull off a tight manhole cover, but failed), and in The Psyduck Stops Here! (where she tried lifting a massive boulder, but collapsed under the weight and was knocked out). Any other time, she successfully brought out her special and uncommon power.

Trivia

  • Happiny was revealed in a Japanese movie poster for The Rise of Darkrai.
  • Happiny is the first Template:Type2 Pokémon owned by Brock.
  • For The Bells are Singing!, Professor Oak's lecture is about Brock's Happiny.
  • It should be noted that Happiny cannot learn Strength in the games, so that means Brock's Happiny is quite unique, showing off monstrous strength similar to what Strength would perhaps do.
    • It should also be noted that in the games, Happiny and the rest of the Chansey family have among the lowest Attack stats.
  • So far, Happiny is Brock's only team member from Sinnoh that has not attacked him to keep him from flirting with girls.
  • Misty's Azurill, Dawn's Cyndaquil and Brock's Happiny are the only Pokémon hatched from eggs officially owned by a main character that aren't known to have evolved as of the latest Japanese episode.
    • All three of these Pokémon can evolve twice.
      • Out of all of these, Happiny is the only one who requires an item to reach its final stage.
  • Happiny is the first among the main characters' Pokémon to have been given and kept a held item, in this case, an Oval Stone made by Brock. The second is Dawn's Piplup, which was given an Everstone.
