There are many ways to raise a Pokemon's Happiness. Some ways are to;

- Keep it in your Party

- Capture it in a Luxury Ball

- Have it hold a Soothe Bell (this about doubles happiness gain)

- Feed it vitamins (HP-up, Iron, Calcium, etc,) Drinks from the Veilstone Vending Machines, or Poffins

- Give it massages at the Ribbon Institute or Veilstone City

- Battle with it (But don't let it faint!)

- Feed it certain berries

*Walking/Biking alone takes about 45,000 steps to achieve maximum happiness. (remember that the soothe bell doubles this)


To see if your Pokemon is as happy as it can get, check your Poketch. There is an app that has your Pokemon bouncing into each other and just floating around. If you hold the stylus on one Pokemon, hearts might appear above it. The first stage of happiness is nothing, the next is 1 heart, then 2 hearts, then both hearts grow.


This might be seen as a glitch/cheat. But if you really want to get the happiness up fast here's what you do:

1: Set your Ds' time to between 3-4Pm

2: Start your game

3: Go to kanto - Pallet town - BLUE's sis' house (Or the groomer in goldenrod's basement)

4: Give it a massage (or a haircut)

5: Save game and go back to your Ds start menu

6: Set the date 1 day aheadand repeat proces.

(if you use No$GBA you don't even have to save and quit, just turn you computer's date 1 day ahead :p)
