Its arrival signaled a new step in the Pokemon franchise, but Togepi is just another rare character in Sword and Shield. Its rarity will certainly leave many players frustrated as they try to figure out how to catch Togepi. But once you have it the confusion really sets in, as you wonder how to evolve it to Togetic and Togekiss eventually. All of this has led to lots of questions from players, so here’s a breakdown. Here’s where to find and how to evolve Togepi in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Where to Find Togepi
Let’s start with the somewhat easy part. Togepi can be found in the Bridge Field region of the Galar map. Head there, but keep a few things in mind. Togepi is a rare Pokemon in Sword and Shield, so be ready to put some time into this. Under most conditions one will only spawn about 2% of the time, while heavy fog will up that to about 5%. Also, they will only appear as random, surprise encounters. He will not spawn in the overworld like other characters, so don’t wander around looking for one in the tall grass. Instead you need to get in there and look for the red exclamation points, then rush to them. If you encounter one you will want to try to catch it using a Friend or Luxury Ball for reasons that will be clear later. Once you have one, you’ll want to know how to evolve it into Togetic and Togekiss.
How to Evolve Togepi
Togepi doesn’t evolve easily. The key to evolving Togepi into Togetic is to keep it happy. Each creature in the game has a happiness factor behind some of its actions. You need to raise this quite high before Togepi will evolve, so you’ll want to know how to make Pokemon happy. The short answer is to include it in battles and on your team, feed it curry at camps, feed it berries and vitamins, and have it hold a Soothe Bell if you have one. Do all of this and eventually your Togepi will evolve to Togetic. All it takes to evolve into Togekiss after that is to use a Shiny Stone.
And that’s all there is to know about where to find and how to evolve Togepi in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
