Pokémon Go Has Turned Blissey Into A Beast, And It's Taking Over Gyms

By Patricia Hernandez on at

Don’t let the round pinkness and the cheerful smile fool you: Blissey is a monster. Since it was added to the roster of second generation Pokémon Go creatures last night, Blissey has started to tear up many gyms.

Here’s why Blissey is so good: it has a hell of a lot of HP. Really, it’s classic Blissey—in the main Pokémon games, Blissey is often used as a tank who can soak up damage. It’s the same case here—Blissey can be stationed at a gym, and the timer is more likely to run out before your enemy can knock it down. Blissey also has an incredible stamina stat. Together, these attributes put Blissey in the top tier of Pokémon Go’s gym metagame, with some debating if it’s not outright broken. Regardless, everyone wants a Blissey right now.

Don’t be surprised if you start seeing Blissey walls at your local gyms, as many players out there are reporting Blissey takeovers:

Getting a Blissey isn’t exactly easy. There’s a chance you can hatch a Happiny from an egg, but that’s random. Chansey is somewhat of a rare spawn out in the wild, and once you have it, it’ll require 50 candy. Levelling its CP from there will also be a stardust sink, but judging from the stats, it might be worth it. Look at this beast, courtesy of tbryson612
