Mind you even a little bit of grinding can make a fair bit of difference in cases.
    I do not recall the scale but I do know that 2 full hearts means they're at max happiness, and two hearts means you can evolve them if they require happiness to do so.
    Okay, thanks. I was asking because, in Platinum, I'm trying to evolve my Budew into Roselia. It's Level 17 so it can't learn any more moves until it evolves.

    Yes, I know if I went up against a good enough fire type I'd be screwed, but that's the fun of it.
