Prior to Number One Donphan, Tobego was conceived by Jasmine's two Togetic when she left both of them in the Day Care. His Egg was found by the Day-Care Couple and delivered to Professor Elm. Togebo was first seen as an Egg in Violet City with an assistant of Professor Elm who was looking for Gold so he could give it to him. After some time, the assistant eventually caught up with Gold and gave the Egg to him, which he named "Eggy."
In Gligar Glide, right after Gold went to sleep in the woods on the outskirts of Goldenrod City, a Gligar swooped down and snatched Togebo's Egg. Aibo tried, unsuccessfully, to wake Gold and he rallied his teammates to chase after it. Aibo caught up first and tried to attack Gligar but it used its stinger, causing Aibo to fall. Then Gligar kicked Polibo, who has just jumped out of the water. Pretending to be a tree, Sudobo caught Gligar, and Exbo used a powerful Ember. Gligar flew away to a tree to eat the Egg, but Sunbo landed on Gligar's head. Unfortunately, this made Gligar headbutt the Egg, creating a crack in the shell. Pieces of the Egg flew off, and Togepi appeared. Gligar, still hungry, attempted to eat Togepi anyways. Togepi retaliated with Double-Edge and Metronome; Metronome came out as Supersonic, which scared Gligar off.
In Piloswine Whine, Togebo was used alongside the rest of Gold's team to defeat Team Rocket's horde of Pokémon.
In Tyranitar War, Togebo battled in Gold's fight against Silver. He managed to defeat his powerful Tyranitar with Double-Edge, but was knocked out as well when Tyranitar fell on top of him.
In Sandslash Surprise, Togebo helped defeat a group of Sandslash. Sometime after this, he was sent to Professor Oak for him to study the Spike Ball Pokémon's odd traits.
In The Last Battle VI, Togebo watched the rest of Gold's Pokémon battle against the Masked Man from inside his Poké Ball, infuriated that Gold did not think he was strong enough to battle.
In Out-Odding Oddish, Togebo participated in the Pokéathlon alongside Sunbo and Sudobo. They started with the Jump Course, and were shown competing in Disc Catch competition. Sunbo and Sudobo easily caught a disc that was thrown to them, and Gold points out that most Pokémon would crowd together to catch a single disc, but since Togebo was small, he can easily move through crowds. Togebo pushed his opponents away and easily caught the disc, which signified the end of the match. The next round they competed in is the Lamp Jump. While Sudobo and Sunbo easily touched some lights, Togebo rudely pushed his opponents out of the way, which gave Gold enough points to earn the Jump Medal. The same three later competed in the Speed Course and encountered a powerful Trainer, Jet. In the Hurdle Dash and Pennant Capture competitions, Jet's team easily defeated Sunbo and Sudobo. In the final match, Relay Run, while most Trainers were seen running with their Pokémon, Gold was seen simply sliding on the ground slowly while riding on his skateboard in the wrong direction. An exhausted and in last place Sudobo struggleed to move on, so he was switched for Sunbo. Seeing there was not much time left, Gold switched Sunbo out for Togebo. Togebo's fast speed allowed him to easily catch up to Jet's Dodrio, but he was kicked away into the gravel by Dodrio's foot. The dirt got into Togebo's eyes, preventing him from being able to see and run properly. Gold commanded Togebo to keep going and gave him directions on where to move, having spent his time memorizing the course. Togebo continued running and eventually managed to make it past Jet's Dodrio, which gave Gold the win.
In One Tough Togepi, Gold sent out his entire team, save Togebo, to fight and distract Lance's Dragonite. Once Dragonite attacked with Hyper Beam, Gold launched Togebo's Poké Ball with his billiard cue, which met the devastating laser attack. Togebo managed to endure the attack long enough to shoot past Dragonite, and came back around with a Double-Edge at the back of its head, fainting the Dragon Pokémon. Later, after Aibo evolved into an Ambipom, Togebo was seen sulking over the attention that he received from the Kimono Girls. It was then revealed that Gold did not exactly know how to evolve Togebo.
In All About Arceus II, after Gold managed to find the missing Lance at the Ruins of Alph, it was revealed that the reason that Togebo has yet to evolve was due to the fact that the two were not fully connected. Lance then gave Togebo a Shiny Stone in the event that they figure it out. When Gold went to battle the rampaging Arceus in All About Arceus VIII, Gold realized how he never thought Togebo to be as strong as his other Pokémon and kept him as a last resort in all of his battles. Realizing his grave mistake, Gold told Togebo to fight; Togebo joined the battle, evolving into a Togetic and then into a Togekiss immediately after. With their new power, Gold and Togebo managed to calm Arceus down.
