So, I picked up Silver version just for the lulz, and I decided on this run I would try raising an Umbreon (I've never had the patience before.)

I was checking the Happiness guide, and I have a stupid question:

Quote:
-Usage in Important Battle [Gym Leaders, Elites, Red] (+3 0-199, +2 200-249)


Do I have to actually win the battle? Or can I deliberately lose and deal with the -1 loss from fainting and gain +2 in about a minute and a half? Over and over and over again...

I believe simply challenging the gym leader is enough.

Note that according to Bulbapedia, the happiness gained from a Gym battle is (+3 0-99, +2 100-199, +1 200-255).

I did an experiment to confirm it...

...it DOES work! My Eevee gains happiness at a slowish rate, but still substantially faster than with more conventional methods.
