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.
