Misty's Togetic (Japanese: カスミのトゲチック Kasumi's Togechick) was the sixth Pokémon acquired by Misty in the anime, and the third she acquired within the series. Acquired in the Kanto region, it was a Togepi for the majority of its journey with Misty.

In the anime


Original series

Togepi being offered to Giovanni by the Team Rocket trio

Togepi was found as a Pokémon Egg by Ash in Grampa Canyon in Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon. In Who Gets to Keep Togepi?, Ash, Misty, Brock, and Meowth fought over the Egg and competed in a battle tournament to determine who would be the eventual owner. When the Egg hatched into Togepi, the first thing it saw was Misty, and it subsequently chose her as its Trainer, thinking that she was its mother. This was in spite of the fact that Ash officially won the tournament.

Togepi had a habit of exploring its surroundings and getting itself into trouble, with Pikachu close behind to protect it. This first happened in The Case of the K-9 Caper! when Togepi wandered off after a piece of food that rolled to the edge of the tabletop. Seeing it about to fall, Pikachu rushed to save it, but instead, he became overbalanced and fell to the ground.

Togepi unintentionally helped the group find Blaine's secret Gym in Riddle Me This when it activated a switch by jumping onto a Gyarados tap fixture.

In The Battle of the Badge, Ash was startled by Togepi and accidentally sent it flying away, where it eventually ended up in the hands of Team Rocket. They duly presented it to Giovanni who was unimpressed as Togepi couldn't do anything remarkable at the time. Togepi managed to slip away and soon reunited with Misty.

Togepi saying goodbye to Voltorb

Although Togepi appeared harmless, it sometimes used Metronome to escape dangerous situations. The first time this happened was in Pikachu Re-Volts. Butch and Cassidy's Drowzee was using Metronome to attack Ash and his friends. Misty's Togepi began using it, causing an explosion that sent Butch and Cassidy flying. It happened again in In the Pink. A Rhyhorn was about to charge the group when Togepi used Metronome to use Teleport. It also used the move later in the episode to stop a Nidoking's Hyper Beam by using Barrier.

In The Underground Round Up, Togepi came across a playful Voltorb rolling around. Seeing it as a game, Togepi got on top of Voltorb to have fun. Misty attempted to remove Togepi from it upon learning that Voltorb tended to explode, but Togepi refused to let go of its new friend. Team Rocket later appeared to capture Voltorb and Togepi used Metronome to stop them. However, the move turned into a useless Splash. Togepi still tried to protect Voltorb, prompting Pikachu and Poncho's Dugtrio to protect them and send Team Rocket blasting off. Togepi was forced to say goodbye to its new friend after this, though Misty assured Togepi that it could still be friends with Voltorb even when they were separated.

Togepi hugging Pikachu

In Tanks a Lot!, Togepi befriended a Sentret. The two played together before rolling off a cliff and into the opening of Team Rocket's Arbo-Tank. Togepi jumped on a lever, causing the mecha to take off and go on a rampage. During the rampage, Togepi used Metronome to drill a hole through a mountain to keep it from crashing. Eventually, Togepi and Sentret were rescued by Ash, his friends, and Team Rocket, after which the mecha promptly exploded.

In No Big Woop!, Togepi kept a group of Wooper under control by playing a tambourine to their favorite beat while Ash and Misty searched for the missing member of the group.

Even though Misty knew Togepi could battle, she only used it once to battle Ash. In The Totodile Duel, Ash was using his Pikachu to battle Misty for ownership of a Totodile. Misty used Togepi because she knew Pikachu would never attack it, as Pikachu often babysit it. Using Charm, Togepi ended up causing Pikachu to forfeit the round.

In Mountain Time, Togepi was stuck with Pikachu and Team Rocket on top of a high balanced rock. When the rock fell, Togepi used Metronome to teleport the group and the rock back onto the balanced perch, putting them in relative safety again.

In Houndoom's Special Delivery, Togepi was separated from Misty and the rest of the group for some time after it used Metronome to teleport itself away from James's Weezing. A Houndoom rescued it from a tree, and the two became good friends, sharing a sad goodbye when it was time for Togepi to leave.

In An EGG-sighting Adventure!, it used Metronome again to teleport Ash's Egg away from Team Rocket.

Pokémon the Series: Ruby and Sapphire

Togetic and Misty

As Ash, Brock, May, and Max met Misty near the gate to the Mirage Kingdom in The Princess and the Togepi, Togepi was kidnapped again by Jessie, James, and Meowth, who were temporarily working for Colonel Hansen, a crooked Mirage Kingdom official. Colonel Hansen wanted to get his hands on Misty's Togepi so he could rule the Mirage Kingdom. Since Colonel Hansen had an impure heart, his taking over the Mirage Kingdom would destroy the Togepi Paradise.

Togepi later evolved into a Togetic in A Togepi Mirage! to protect the other Togepi. When Colonel Hansen injured Togetic, Misty promptly sent out her Gyarados and defeated Hansen's Shedinja with a Flamethrower attack. After seeing the damage Hansen had done trying to reach the Mirage Kingdom, Misty respected her Togetic's decision to stay behind and released it so it could protect the Kingdom, the Togepi Paradise, and the Togepi who lived there.

Personality and characteristics

Togepi crying
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

As a Togepi, it was close to Misty ever since its hatching, and they quickly developed a relationship akin to that between a mother and her child. However, despite its adorable appearance, Togepi boasted incredible power that showed itself on occasion.

As a Togepi, it was particularly curious about the world around itself. Because of this, it was prone to walking off and getting itself and Pikachu, who would always pursue it, into dangerous situations, which usually resulted in Pikachu getting hurt while Togepi walked away unharmed. It was very friendly towards other Pokémon, particularly ones that were small, young, and wild, such as a Sentret in Tanks a Lot! and, much to Misty's dislike, a Caterpie in The Bug Stops Here. It also made friends with Pokémon who had a fearsome reputation, such as Tracey's Scyther. Again, it would be unaware of the potential dangers like Voltorb in The Underground Round Up.

Another one of Togepi's unlikely friendships was depicted in Houndoom's Special Delivery, where it was forced to say goodbye to its new friend Doomy; this showcased Togepi's ability to change hearts. It was also clever, as suggested by it recognizing Gligarman quickly in The Superhero Secret. When it evolved and assumed its new responsibility as the Togepi Paradise guardian in A Togepi Mirage!, Togetic was markedly more mature while maintaining its pure heart.

  • Togetic is referred to as a male in the Brazilian Portuguese dub of several episodes. However, this is unlikely to be an indication of its actual gender since the neutral pronoun in Portuguese language ("isso" = it) is not used to directly refer to someone or something; instead, "ele" (he) or "ela" (she) have to be used even if the gender of the subject is unknown.
  • In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, if the player brings a walking Togepi to the Cerulean Gym, it will start to cry softly, referencing Misty's Togepi.
