I was too busy sharing this that i forgot to favorite/comment. I feel like my little Riolu was like that too in X. XD Though i think his happiness was achieved when we won a battle. Still it's adorable! X3
Haha I totally forgot Riolu evolves by happiness and when my little Gri evolved at level 23 I was like "...huh...23 is an odd level to evolve at...". But then he's one of my favs so he got spoiled beyond all reason.
Oh geez, its me and my Pichu Zeus all over again. XD I remember winning contests (WHICH I HATE) with him and feeding that little spoiled brat poffins so that I could evolve him into a Pikachu, then right into Raichu. I wanted to strangle him. lol Absolutely love his!
I know the feeling, I was doing the same thing when I was trying to evolve my Floette to a Florges. I got it all the way to level 50 and I was all trying to figure out what the bleeping heck I was doing wrong. I went online and found out I had to use a bleeping shiny stone on it, and I can't find a shiny stone anywhere. Boy did I fell like a dork.
