The haircut brothers are characters in Pokémon Gold and Silver, occasionally appearing in the Underground Path in Goldenrod City, Johto.

As the name suggests, the brothers give a single Pokémon a haircut that increases the Happiness of the Pokémon, once per day. Using the services of the brothers is useful for evolving Pokémon that require a certain amount of Happiness to evolve, such as Togepi or Eevee.

The younger of the Haircut brothers is cheaper at PokémonDollar.png300, but his service is often less satisfactory. However, the younger brother has a chance of occasionally increasing a Pokémon's Happiness to a greater degree than the older brother is capable. The Older brother is more reliable but more expensive at PokémonDollar.png500.

Happiness level

The brothers will raise a Pokémon's Happiness by one of three levels:

  • "Pokémon looks a little happy"
  • "Pokémon looks happy!"
This is approximately twice as large as the first level.
  • Pokémon looks delighted!"
This is approximately twice as large as the second level for the older brother, and three times as large as the second level for the younger brother.


The brothers never work at the same time. The brother that is on shift depends on the day of the week. On Mondays, neither brother is available for haircuts.
