Trivia

  • Chansey was originally going to use her Japanese name, Lucky, as her English name.
  • Chansey has the second-highest base HP of all Pokémon. The highest is Chansey's evolution, Blissey.
  • Chansey, along with Happiny, has the lowest base stat for both Attack and Defense in the games.
  • Chansey is one of five Pokémon that initially did not evolve into or from another Pokémon, but now is part of a three-stage evolutionary line (the other four being Electabuzz, Magmar, Porygon and Roselia). Of these, only Porygon is not the middle member of its family, and only Roselia was not introduced in Generation I.
  • Chansey, and its evolution family, Blissey and Happiny, have the most in-game items associated with them. This includes: Lucky Punch, Lucky Egg, Luck Incense and the Oval Stone.
  • Chansey shares the same species name with Exeggcute. They are both known as Egg Pokémon.
  • Golbat and Chansey are the only Pokémon that evolve by happiness that are already evolved. Before Generation IV, Golbat was the only one.

Origin

Its tendency to carry eggs in a pouch is very monotreme- or marsupial-like. It may also just be based on a general concept of females and motherhood.

Name origin

Chansey's name is a corruption of chance; like its Japanese name, Lucky, it seems to refer to the rarity of this Pokémon.

In other languages

  • German: Chaneira
  • French: Leveinard - Le veinard means "The lucky one".
  • Korean: 럭키 Rakki - Transliteration of the English word Lucky.
