“Gotta catch ’em all,” an infamous line from the globally recognized anime and one of the franchise’s most iconic lines, is one of the player’s main objectives in Pokemon Legends: Arceus. The game is set long ago before the Hisui region was renamed Sinnoh.

Pokemon Legends: Arceus Ultimate Happiny Guide

The player will join the Galaxy Expedition Team (or simply Galaxy Team) to become one of the Survey Corps’ most important members. The Survey Corps’ mission is to acquire information about the Pokemon that live in Hisui.

To assemble the first-ever Hisui Pokedex, the player must catch every kind of Pokemon and complete their Research Tasks. Not only that, but the legendary Arceus will give the player the task of meeting every Pokemon in the region.

This guide will discuss everything you need to know about Happiny!


Happiny, the 86th Pokemon in the Hisuian Pokedex, is a Normal-type Playhouse Pokemon that has a small, pink body that is shaped like an egg, a light pink upper half, a light pink, curly growth on its head that looks like hair tied up in a ponytail with a dark pink band, a pair of small, oval eyes, a small mouth, a pair of light pink stubby arms, a dark pink circle marking on both of its cheeks, a dark pink pouch on the lower half with a white outline on top, and a pair of dark pink, stubby feet.

According to its Pokedex entry in the game, it has a round stone in its pouch that it treasures to mimic a Chansey. Also, it says that Happiny loves children and will play house with them for fun occasionally.

Basic Information

Happiny is a Normal type Pokemon with a weakness to Fighting-type moves (super effective) and an immunity to Ghost-type moves (no effect).

Happiny’s base stats are 100 HP, 5 Attack, 5 Defense, 15 Special Attack, 65 Special Defense, and 30 Speed for 220.

Happiny can be evolved to a Chansey by using an Oval Stone during the daytime (morning, midday, or evening). Chansey can then be evolved to a Blissey once it reaches a High Friendship Level.

Happiny prefers Dazzling Honey, which, like berries, can be thrown towards a Happiny as both food and lure to catch or engage in a battle with it while it is unaware.

Whenever the player catches or beats a Happiny in the wild, the player gets a Razz Berry and an Oval Stone.


To find a Happiny, the player can head to the following locations:

In the Obsidian Fieldlands: at the top of the Obsidian Falls and in Oreburrow Tunnel.

In the Cobalt Coastlands: on the shores of Hideaway Bay.

In the Alabaster Icelands: in Avalanche Slopes.

Happiny can be found in the areas specified at all times of day and in all weather conditions.

Aside from these locations, there is a possibility that the player can encounter a Happiny in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Cobalt Coastlands.

Research Tasks

The following are the Research Tasks in Happiny’s Pokedex entry:

MultiplierResearch TaskObjectives
x2Number caught1/2/3/4/5
Number you have caught without being spotted1/2/3/4/5
Times you have seen it use Baby-Doll Eyes1/3/6/12/25
Times you have given it food1/2/3/4/5
x2Number you have evolved1/2/3

A Pokemon’s Pokedex entry must attain Research Level 10 to be considered complete. Suppose one of a Research Task’s objectives is fulfilled. In that case, a Pokemon’s Pokedex entry’s Research Level is increased by one level unless the Research Task objective gives a multiplier of x2, in which case completing one of its objectives gives two Research Levels and not just one. Remember that completing Pokedex entries and Research Task objectives will reward the player with Research Points, which, if enough, will increase the player’s Star Rank in the Galaxy Team.

To quickly complete Happiny’s Pokedex entry, the player can find a Happiny, feed it food or berries five times, then catch two, with at least one caught without being spotted. Doing these will tick the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth objectives of the “Times you have given it food” Research Task to gain five Research Levels; tick the first and second objective of the “Number caught” Research Task to raise four Research Levels thanks to its x2 multiplier, and tick the first objective of the “Number you have caught without being spotted” Research Task to gain the last Research Level needed to attain Research Level 10.


Happiny can be taught new moves by leveling up or visiting the Training Grounds.
