Pokemon Sun & Moon: Easy Way to Raise Happiness | Friendship Guide


Happiness is an easily-overlooked feature in Pokemon Sun and Moon. There’s so much to do, and so many new islands to visit filled with unique Generation 7 Pokemon, it’s hard to stop and take care of the critters you’ve already caught. Making your Pokemon happy isn’t just for fun — certain Pokemon, like Pichu, need to be happy or they won’t evolve.

Not only that, but raising happiness can be an extremely slow process. Don’t worry, the Pokemon Reddit community has cracked the code and uncovered a way to raise happiness rapidly.

This amazingly easy happiness-increasing strategy comes from Redditor Leafeon111. It’s so simple, but so effective. Here’s how to do it.

  1. Collect / Purchase two TMs.
  2. Replace one move with a TM.
    • Select a move you don’t mind losing (for now!) — you’ll get a chance to learn new abilities afterward.
  3. Use the second TM to replace the first TM.
  4. Replace the second TM with the first TM.
    • Rinse and repeat.
  5. After 5-10 minutes, you’ll max out happiness.

Now all you have to do to evolve a Pokemon with a happiness requirement is Level-Up. Super easy, right? No need to constantly pet your Pokemon or feed it or do any of the other happiness-increasing abilities.

Lots of Pokemon need happiness to evolve — Munchlax needs happiness to become Snorlax, for example. From now until January 11th, 2017, Munchlax will be a Mystery Gift, so don’t miss out!
