'''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 got}} in the [[Kanto]] region. Its voice actress as both a Togepi and Togetic was ''[[Satomi Kōrogiregion]]''.
 
==HistoryIn the anime==
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.===History===

Despite the fact that Misty knew Togepi could battle, she only used it one time to battle Ash.

As=====Orange 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.Islands=====

Image:TogeggAlthough Togepi appeared harmless, it sometimes used {{m|Metronome}} to get out of dangerous situations.jpg 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 itsthe eggPink]]''. 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}}.

==Fandom criticisms==
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.
 
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]].

==Trivia==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.
*Before Misty hatched her [[Misty's Azurill|Azurill]], Togetic was the only Pokémon she owned that was not of the {{type2|Water}}.
:*Despite this, Togetic can never become a Water-type, unlike Azurill.
*Togetic is the first anime Pokémon hatched from an egg that could evolve and can evolve again (the second being [[Brock's Happiny]]), though it could not evolve again the last time it was seen.
*It's currently the only Pokémon that officially belongs to a main character despite never having been placed in a Poké Ball.
:*Togetic is the only anime Pokémon hatched from an egg to never be placed in a Poké Ball. {{TP|Misty|Azurill}} was hinted at having been put in a Poké Ball when Misty returned to the Gym due to its absence in ''[[The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon]]''.

==External=Personality linksand characteristics===
*[http{{bulbanews|Personality & Development://pokeani.com/poke/r_p-kasumi2.html TogechickMisty's Profile] on [[Pokeani]] (Japanese)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.
