Pokemon Crystal Pokemon of the Day: Blissey (#242) - IGN FAQs (1434 words)
In battle, Blissey is actually a pretty solid contender; she may have the single most jacked stats of any Pokemon ever, but at least she knows how to use them and has plenty of unique and interesting move options at her disposal.
Much like Steelix, many of Blissey's best move options are in the form of RBY TMs and even though her particular evolution wasn't introduced back then, there's nothing stopping anyone from sending Chansey back for some and evolving it at a later date.
I would recommend saving Thunderwave for when Blissey is brought in mid-battle, particularly if you introduce her to something like Alakazam or Jolteon (read: exclusively elemental attackers who are likely to cut and run upon sight of a Blissey).
NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Blissey (1875 words)
Blissey is equally compulsive in caring for the ill; It will nurture any sick person or Pokémon it encounters back to health with loving care, using the healing powers held in its egg in its pouch as well.
Blissey can only be obtained in the video games by evolving the elusive Chansey, which in most games is found in the Safari Zone But in Pokemon Gold and Silver and in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl it is found on a normal route.
Blissey, keen to help her friend, takes Jessie to the food pantry and gives them all (and I mean all) of the food.
