Chansey has been seen, albeit rather elusively, in quite a few of the Pokémon franchise's many forms, be it in the Pokémon Centers across the world of the anime, in the Safari Zone in Fuschia City in the first generation of mainline games, or even in a minigame in Pokémon Stadium. There have been even more appearances by the Egg Pokémon in other media in the franchise as well. Chansey and its evolution Blissey have also been a frequent cause for many a moan and groan when being faced down by trainers at gyms in Pokémon GO. Clearly, this Pokémon TCG card is not a card you'd want to pass up the chance to bid on (if you'll pardon the expression)!
