Sun It carries a round white rock in its belly pouch. If it gets along well with someone, it will sometimes give that person the rock.
Moon It’s too small to lay eggs yet. As a surrogate, it searches out round white stones.
Ultra Sun Usually it’s a well-behaved Pokémon, but if you take its round rock away, it will cry and fuss and throw a big old tantrum.
Ultra Moon When it sees something round and white, Happiny puts it into the pouch on its stomach. It sometimes becomes overloaded and can’t move.
Sword Mimicking Chansey, Happiny will place an egg- shaped stone in its belly pouch. Happiny will treasure this stone.
Shield Happiny’s willing to lend its precious round stone to those it’s friendly with, but if the stone isn’t returned, Happiny will cry and throw a tantrum.
