The Chansey line of Pokémon has long been associated with healing, being a fixture at Pokémon Centers in the anime and possessing rare health-recovery moves like the trademark Soft-Boiled in the game. And Game Freak has carried that legacy into Pokémon Legends: Arceus with an absolutely fantastic easter egg.



Blissey, the fully evolved member of the line, will usually run away if it sees you approaching. However, if it spots you while you’re heavily injured, it will instead rush to your side, as if seeking to give care to you in your hour of need. While you heal in Legends just by standing still, the Blissey will stay by your side until you’re all better before fleeing. It’s a wonderful little detail in a game packed full of them.
