    Thumbs up How to Make Your Pokemon Happy

    There is a hidden stat for happiness.
    The stat needs to be maxed out for pokemon to evolve. 255 is max.

    Your Poketch will tell you what range your pokemon is in.
    No hearts, happiness = 0-99
    One heart, happiness = 100-199
    Two hearts, happiness = 200-255

    Also: If a pokemon is critically wounded [beeping sound] or has a bad status [sleep, poison,...], it will not receive its happiness points.

    Holding Soothe Bell increases points 50% of what is listed below.

    Walk 256 steps with the Pokemon in your active Party.
    (+1 point)

    Feeding pokemon negative EV berry.
    [berries 21-26, pomeg - tamato]
    (+10 points)

    Grooming your pokemon by massage.
    (+3 points if its happiness stat is 0-199,
    +1 point if its happiness stat is 200-254)

    Give the Pokemon Vitamins.
    [HP Up, Carbos, Iron, Protein, Calcium, Zinc, PP Up]
    (+5 points if its happiness stat is 0-99,
    +3 points if its happiness stat is 100-199,
    +2 points if its happiness stat is 200-254)

    Usage in Important Battle.
    [Gym Leaders, Elites, Champion]
    (+3 points if its happiness stat is 0-99,
    +2 points if its happiness stat is 100-199,
    +1 point if its happiness stat is 200-254)

    Level Up the Pokemon.
    (+5 points if its happiness stat is 0-99,
    +3 points if its happiness stat is 100-199,
    +2 points if its happiness stat is 200-254)

    The Haircut Brothers in Goldenrod City can raise your Pokemon's happiness between 1 and 10 points depending on your Pokemon's reaction after the haircut
    -------------------------------------------

    If for some reason you are an evil trainer and want unhappy pokemon.

    The attack Frustration benefits from an unhappy pokemon.
    Where as Return benefits from a happy pokemon with a high happiness stat.

    You can decrease the happiness stat using the following items.

    Letting your pokemon faint in battle will lower it happiness one point

    Energypowder
    (-5 point if its happiness stat is 0-199,
    -10 point if its happiness stat is 200-249)

    Heal Powder
    (-5 point if its happiness stat is 0-199,
    -10 point if its happiness stat is 200-249)

    Energy Root
    (-10 point if its happiness stat is 0-199,
    -15 point if its happiness stat is 200-249)

    Revival Herb
    (-15 point if its happiness stat is 0-199,
    -20 point if its happiness stat is 200-249)



    Edit 1:

    Some people debate that letting a pokemon faint only gives -1 point to the happiness stat. My experimentation has shown its a happiness reset, but I'm only human...I could be wrong. My advice is to not take the chance if you are trying to evolve a pokemon.

    Edit 2:

    Pokemon have a base happiness stat as well.
    It is the happiness value it will have when its hatched, caught or traded.
    The list below is what I have found from different sites.

    Base = 35
    Absol, Aggron, Aron, Articuno, Bagon, Banette, Beldum, Cacnea, Cacturne, Carvanha, Chatot, Dragonair, Dragonite, Dratini, Dusclops, Dusknoir, Duskull, Entei, Gallade, Gardevoir, Glaceon, Honchkrow, Houndoom, Houndour, Kirlia, Lairon, Larvitar, Leafeon, Metagross, Metang, Misdreavus, Mismagius, Moltres, Murkrow, Pupitar, Raikou, Ralts, Regice, Regirock, Registeel, Sableye, Salamence, Sharpedo, Shelgon, Shuppet, Sneasel, Suicune, Tyranitar, Umbreon, Weavile, Zapdos, Axew, Fraxure, Haxorus, Pawnaird, Bisharp, Vullaby, Mandibuzz, Deino, Zweilous, Hydreigon, Cobalion, Terrakion, Virizion, Keldeo

    Base = 70
    All other Pokemon not in any other group.

    Base = 90
    Latios, Latias, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus

    Base = 100
    Ambipom, Cresselia, Croagunk, Heatran, Luxio, Pachirisu, Shaymin, Victini, Meloetta

    Letting a pokemon die doesn't reset happiness. Some of mine died countless times and it barely affected the time it took them to evolve (i.e. it just makes them lose some points but not all).

    Also, afaik, two hearts is enough for evolution. I don't if it's because evolution is possible starting from 200 or because 2 hearts means a happiness stat of 255.

    Return benefits from happiness. The attack that benefits from frustration is, well... frustration

    Fainting didn't seem to affect my pichu very much, I was using it as chain-bait so I was forcing it to faint. However, it still evolved at level 2/3. Must have been because the steps counteracted the fainting. But I didn't do anything! I just sent it against opponents that outranked it and now I have a level 4 pikachu :P

    I still use it as chain bait though, I'm not sure how much it helps but I have gotten 2 electric shiny species, so it can't be too bad.

    A quick question: if a pokemon explodes (uses self destruct or explosion) or sacrifices (uses momento or healing wish) itself, does it lose the standard -1 happiness?

    Also: If a pokemon is critically wounded [beeping sound] or has a bad status [sleep, poison,...], it will not receive its happiness points.

    ^I should point out that's a myth. Letting your pokemon walk around with a status condition or letting it receive critical health will not influence happiness in any way.

    Why is it then that my Giratina loved me from what seemed to be the moment I caught it? In fact, now that I think about it, all my legendaries loved me from the very moment I caught them...
