'''Misty's Togetic''' (Japanese: '''カスミのトゲチック''' ''Kasumi's Togechick'') was found as a [[Pokémon egg]] by [[Ash Ketchum]] in [[Grandpa Canyon]] in ''[[EP046|Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon]]''. Ash, [[Misty]], [[Brock]] and [[Meowth (Team Rocket)|Meowth]] fought over the egg and competed to determine who would be the eventual owner. When the Pokémon Egg hatched into {{pAnimePokémonInfobox|Togepi}}, the first thing it saw was Misty, and it chose her as it's trainer, thinking that she was its mother. It ended up being the sixth Pokémon Misty got in the [[Kanto]] region. Its voice actress as both a Togepi and Togetic was ''[[Satomi Kōrogi]]''.

'''Misty's Togetic''' (Japanese: '''カスミのトゲチック''' ''Kasumi's Togechick'') was the sixth {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} acquired by {{an|Misty}} in the [[Kanto]] [[region]].
 
Although Togepi appeared harmless, it sometimes used {{m|Metronome}} to get out of dangerous situations. The first time it happened was in ''[[EP086|Pikachu Re-Volts]]''. [[Butch]] and [[Cassidy]]'s {{p|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 ''[[EP088|==In the Pink]]''. A {{p|Rhyhorn}} was about to charge the group when Togepi used Metronome to use {{m|Teleport}}. It also used the move later in the episode to stop a {{m|Hyper Beam}} attack by a {{p|Nidoking}} by using {{m|Reflect}}.anime==

==Fandom===Orange criticismsIslands=====
Amongst many fans, Misty's obtaining Togepi is considered the moment when her personality "[[wpFile:Jumping the shark|jumped the shark]]", and started to become drastically different. Prior toMisty Togepi's introduction, Misty was known for being angry, active, and prone to fits of competitive spirit and ragecrying.png|220px|thumb|As After she began to raisea Togepi, her personality became significantly subdued as her character revolved more and more around the little Pokémon's wellbeing, leaving her little time for anything else. crying]]
Although Togepi appeared harmless, it sometimes used {{m|Metronome}} to get out of dangerous situations. The first time it happened was in ''[[EP086|Pikachu Re-Volts]]''. [[Butch]] and [[Cassidy]]'s {{p|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 ''[[EP088|In the Pink]]''. A {{p|Rhyhorn}} was about to charge the group when Togepi used {{m|Metronome}} to use {{m|Teleport}}. It also used the move later in the episode to stop a {{m|Hyper Beam}} attack from a {{p|Nidoking}} by using {{m|Barrier}}.
 
Whether this drastic shift in character was caused in itself by Togepi or rather a writer's block by the producers over what to do with Misty in the [[Generation II]] series is unknown, but websites and organizations such as [[Pokemopolis]] will often point to her acquisition of the little creature as the sign of a sudden shift of much of Misty's character.=====Johto=====
Despite the fact that Misty knew Togepi could battle, she only used it one time to battle Ash. In ''[[EP151|The Totodile Duel]]'', Ash was using his {{AP|Pikachu}} to battle Misty for ownership of a {{AP|Totodile}}. Misty used Togepi, because she knew Pikachu would never attack it, as Pikachu would often babysit it. Using {{m|Charm}}, Togepi ended up defeating Pikachu.

*As Ash, Brock, {{man|MetronomeMay}}, and [[Max]] met Misty near the gate to the [[Mirage Kingdom]] in ''[[AG044|The Princess and the Togepi]]'', Togepi was kidnapped again by [[Jessie]], [[James]], and {{MTR}}, 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]].
*{{m|Safeguard}}
Togepi later evolved into a Togetic in ''[[AG045|A Togepi Mirage!]]'' in order to protect the other Togepi. When Togetic was injured by Colonel Hansen, Misty promptly sent out her {{TP|Misty|Gyarados}} and defeated Hansen's {{p|Shedinja}} with a {{m|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 {{pkmn2|released}} it, so it could protect the Kingdom, the Togepi Paradise, and the Togepi who lived there.
 
===={{series|Best Wishes}}====
Togetic appeared as a Togepi in Ash's flashback in ''[[BW116|The Fires of a Red-Hot Reunion!]]''.
 
===={{series|Sun & Moon}}====
Togetic appeared as a Togepi in Brock's flashback in ''[[SM042|Alola, Kanto!]]''.
 
===Personality and characteristics===
{{bulbanews|Personality & Development: Misty's Togetic}}
As a Togepi, it was close to {{an|Misty}} ever since its hatching, and they quickly developed a relationship akin to that between a mother and a child. However, despite its adorable appearance, Togepi boasted an incredible amount of 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 {{AP|Pikachu}} who would always pursue it into dangerous situations, which usually resulted in Pikachu getting hurt while Togepi walked away unharmed. It was also very friendly towards other Pokémon, again unaware of the potential dangers like {{p|Voltorb}} in ''[[EP114|The Underground Round Up]]''.
 
Another one of Togepi's unlikely friendships was depicted in ''[[EP180|Houndoom's Special Delivery]]'', where it was forced to say goodbye to its new friend {{p|Houndoom|Doomy}}; this showcased Togepi's ability to change hearts. When it [[Evolution|evolved]] and assumed its new responsibility as the [[Togepi Paradise]] guardian in ''[[AG045|A Togepi Mirage!]]'', Togetic was markedly more mature while maintaining its pure heart.
