Because it says I need to max that out to evolve my togepi.
How do I find out my pokemon's happiness/friendship stat in crystal version (gen 2)?

When in doubt google, one person said, "In Goldenrod City there is a woman who will tell you the amount of happiness of the first Pokemon in your party. She doesn't give you a specific number, but you can have a general idea of it:"
Just in case you want a guide.
