How to Make Pokemon Happy in Pokemon BDSP

To make your Pokemon Happy in Pokemon Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl or BDSP, there are a number of things you can do, as we’ve said. First off, feed them Poffins they like and avoid anything bitter. Give them Vitamins and Berries, but be careful, since every Berry lowers one of their stats. Make sure that the Pokemon whose happiness you want to raise is on your team, and give them massages when and where they’re available. Another good idea is to give them a Soothing Bell, because it increases the amount of happiness they get from going into battles. While we’re on the subject, make sure to not let them faint in fights.

Those are all the standard things you can use to make your Pokemon happy in Pokemon BDSP or Brilliant Diamond & Shining Pearl. Another very major thing you can do is walk with your Pokemon. In the original games, you could only do this in Amity Square in Hearthome. However, in the new versions, you can walk with your Pokemon all across the world once you unlock the feature. For more info on that, check out our How to Walk with Your Pokemon guide. The Pokemon you walk with will be really happy, as seen above, especially if you keep interacting with them. Moreover, it seems that that happiness affects every other Pokemon you have in your party.
