Here’s how to evolve Happiny & Chansey or catch a Blissey outright in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet!
Blissey is one of the best tanks in Pokemon history, boasting an insane amount of health and some excellent support moves. With high Special Defense and a huge HP stat, this Pokemon will be sticking around in fights for a long time, and it’s well worth adding to your team.
The easiest way to get a Blissey is to evolve a Chansey. However, Blissey also spawns in the wild in the Paldea region, for those who know where to look!
How to Evolve Chansey into Blissey
To evolve a Chansey in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, trainers need to raise the Pokemon’s happiness then level it up.
To raise Chansey’s happiness:
- Catch the Pokemon in a Luxury Ball
- Use the new Picnic feature
- Give Chansey a Soothe Bell to hold
- Feed it certain Berries
- Or keep it in your party for some time
Once Chansey reaches a high enough happiness level, a stat that’s unfortunately impossible to track, try leveling it up through battle or with an Exp or Rare Candy.
Here’s the best way to raise friendship using Picnics in Scarlet & Violet!
If Chansey is happy enough, it will evolve into Blissey right after leveling up. If not, simply keep it in your party a little longer and try again after some time.
The Berries that raise happiness in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are:
- Pomeg Berry
- Kelpsy Berry
- Qualot Berry
- Hondew Berry
- Grepa Berry
- Tamato Berry
However, using Berries will usually reduce a stat while boosting happiness. We recommend using Kelpsy Berries, which lower Chansey’s attack (seeing as it’s already its lowest stat), if you can find them.
Where to Catch Blissey Location in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
If you’d like to bypass the evolution method and catch a Blissey outright, the Pokemon can be found as an extremely rare encounter at the Northmost point of Glaseado Mountain. It may also appear in North Province (Area One) situated in the Northeast of Paldea.
While Blissey will spawn far more rarely than Chansey or its first form, Happiny, you can use this method to reset Wild Pokemon spawns in Scarlet and Violet until it appears!
Where to Catch Chansey & Happiny in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
Chansey is a very rare spawn but it can be found all over the North side of the Paldea region, as well as appearing in the area surrounding Alfornada.
Its pre-evolution, Happiny, is far more common in the South of Paldea, immediately to the East, West, and South of Mesagoza.
How to Evolve Happiny into Chansey
To evolve Happiny into Chansey, trainers need to give the Pokemon an Oval Stone and then level it up during the day.
To give Happiny the Oval Stone:
- Press X to open the menu
- Select Bag with A
- Press right on the D-Pad 4 times until you get to ‘Other Items’
- Find the Oval Stone in your inventory
- Press A and choose Give to Pokemon
- Select a Happiny in your party
Then, make sure it’s daytime in-game and use Exp. Candy, Rare Candy, or simply battle with the Pokemon until it levels up once. It will then evolve into Chansey.
Where to Find an Oval Stone in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet trainers can find an Oval Stone in a set location on the ground in Levincia. They can also appear as glimmers on the ground in Asado Desert, but hunting for them using that method is far more random and time-consuming.
The easiest Oval Stone to find in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet is in Levincia. Fast travel to Levincia (North) and when facing the town (with your back to the Pokemon Center) head left.
At the first opportunity, turn right and you’ll be facing a bridge leading to the large Poke Ball-shaped area. On the ground by a small tree just to the right of the bridge entrance you’ll find an item that turns out to be an Oval Stone.
Once you’ve found one Oval Stone, don’t forget that you can use this method to duplicate any item in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet!
Blissey Base Stats
Blissey Strengths & Weaknesses
Blissey is a Normal-Type Pokemon, which means that it is 2x weak to Fighting-Type attacks. Normal-Type attacks are also completely ineffective against Ghost-Type Pokemon.
Normal-Types are not supereffective against any other type, but they have fewer weaknesses as a trade-off.
It should also be noted that Blissey has incredibly low Attack and Defense stats, so stick to Special Attacks for its moveset. Seeing as Fighting-Type moves tend to be Physical Attacks, be very careful to protect your Blissey from any Fighting-Type Pokemon.
