[[Image:Togegg.jpg|thumb|200px||left|In its egg]]Togepi was found as a [[Pokémon egg]] by [[Ash Ketchum]] in [[Grandpa Canyon]] in ''[[EP046|Attack of the Prehistoric Pokémon]]''. Ash, [[Misty]], [[Brock]] and {{MTR}} fought over the egg and competed to determine who would be the eventual owner. When the Pokémon Egg hatched into {{p|Togepi}}, the first thing it saw was Misty, and it chose her as its trainer, thinking that she was its mother.
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}}.

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 [[Ash's Pikachu|Pikachu]] to battle Misty for ownership of a [[Ash's Totodile|Totodile]]. Misty used Togepi, because she knew Pikachu would never attack it, as Pikachu would often babysit it. Using {{m|Charm}}, she ended up defeating Pikachu.
As Ash, Brock, May and Max met Misty near the gate to the [[Mirage Kingdom]] in ''[[AG044|The Princess and the Togepi]]'', it 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 is an impure-hearted person, his taking over the Mirage Kingdom would destroy the Togepi Paradise. It 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 [[Misty's Gyarados|Gyarados]] and defeated Hansen's Shedinja with a {{m|Flamethrower}} attack. After seeing the damage Hansen had done trying to reach the Mirage Kingdom, Misty released her Togetic to protect the Kingdom, the [[Togepi Paradise]], and the Togepi who lived there.

Amongst many fans, Misty's obtaining Togepi is considered the moment when her personality "[[wp:Jumping the shark|jumped the shark]]", and started to become drastically different. Prior to Togepi's introduction, Misty was known for being angry, active, and prone to fits of competitive spirit and rage. After she began to raise 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.
