Massages

In Gold & Silver, Blue's sister, Daisy Oak, would offer the ability for your Pokémon to be massaged. This feature has made its return in HeartGold & SoulSilver. From 3pm to 4pm on any day, you can visit Daisy Oak in Pallet Town and she will offer to give your Pokémon a massage.

The massage that Daisy Oak gives your Pokémon increases their happiness. However, it does have an extra, brand new effect. This effect is completely invisible within HeartGold & SoulSilver and is really only noticeiable when you trade your Pokémon to Diamond, Pearl or Platinum. This effect is, Super Contest Conditions.

Contest Condition

Whenever your Pokémon gets a massage by Daisy Oak, or a haircut in Goldenrod underground, its Beauty Condition is increased by 32 points (1/8th of its maximum amount) and the Sheen is increased by 22 regardless of the nature of the Pokémon. This will allow any Pokémon with an untouched Contest Condition be able to reach maximum Beauty within 8 days. However, in order to check the condition of your Pokémon, you will need to access a trade with Diamond, Pearl or Platinum and see the condition of the Pokémon through the stat pages on that game.

This is very handy for you if you wish to partake in the Pokémon Super Contests of Sinnoh, but there's an added bonus.

Milotic

Milotic is a unique Pokémon in that it can only evolve from its base form, Feebas, if it has a maximum Beauty stat. In previous games, this has been dependant on your PokéBlock or Poffin creation skills as well as the nature of the Feebas. It was also only able to get to the point of evolution in the games with contests in, leaving Feebas unevolvable within Colosseum, XD, FireRed & LeafGreen. This new mechanic breaks the trend as you can now evolve Feebas into Milotic easily.

To get a Feebas, you need to do one of three things; trade one from Diamond, Pearl or Platinum, transfer one through Pal Park from the GBA games or capture one in the Quiet Cave PokéWalker Course.
