The egg hatched revealing the Pokémon to be a Happiny at one of the Pokémon Centers. As a Happiny, it possessed enormous strength, using that strength to throw Brock into the air when it hatched. Later in the series, Happiny lifted an enormous boulder with one hand and also lifted Ash's Grotle and carried it around Canalave City when it got tired.
While on the boat to Twinleaf Town, Brock's Happiny evolved into Chansey while trying to help a Pichu. It is currently unknown if Chansey has kept the strength it had as a Happiny but it knows the move Softboiled which it used to heal Pichu on the boat.
