Nurse Joy's Chansey (Japanese: ジョーイのラッキー Joy's Lucky) is a Pokémon owned by almost all the Nurse Joy in Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh and the Orange Archipelago.


Chansey first appeared in Pokémon Emergency!, where they rushed Ash's Pikachu to the recovery room due to an encounter with several Spearow. Since then, they have made an appearance as the Pokémon of every Nurse Joy up until Unova.

Several Chansey have appeared more prominently than others. The one owned by the Nurse Joy in Overjoyed! was not only a good nurse, but a good battler as well. She was able to defeat Ash's Corphish in an informal battle the two had. Another Chansey, in The Joy of Pokémon, traveled on a kayak with its Nurse Joy from island to island to treat injured Pokémon. Jessie of Team Rocket once befriended a Chansey, which later met again, having evolved into Blissey. She appeared in Ignorance is Blissey.

Her last appearance was in SS025 under the ownership of an Agent Joy of the PIA. She battled Brock's Sudowoodo at the Pewter Gym. Sudowoodo easily fell to Chansey's Attract and was defeated by an Egg Bomb.
