Pokémon Sword is one of the earliest Pokémon games introduced to the Switch platform and was immediately welcomed by the fanbase.

It features a variety of Pokémon, from the old ones that we grew up with and loved, to the newer ones that bring a fresh and unique feel to the game.

One of the older generation Pokémon that was added to the game is Togepi. Togepi is especially famous because of its frequent appearance in the anime series.

This article will tackle where you can find and evolve it in Pokémon Sword.

Let’s get right to it.

What is a Togepi in Pokémon GO?

Before we go into the details of how you can find Togepi, let’s get to know the little egg Pokémon first.

Togepi is one of the most iconic Pokémon from the anime. In the series, it is owned by Misty, who is one of Ash’s fellow protagonists. It happened when Togepi hatched and saw Misty's face first, imprinting on her.

For those who haven’t watched the anime or seen what Togepi looks like, it’s like a white blob—half-hatched from its shell with only its head, hands, and feet sticking out of it. It is very vulnerable with its 35 base HP and 65 Defense and Sp. Defense base stats.

Togepi's limited moveset makes it really difficult to train in the beginning. However, as it evolves into a Togetic and eventually a Togekiss, it becomes a force to be reckoned with. For this reason, you'll definitely want to add Togepi to your developing team.

Where to Find Togepi in Pokémon Sword?

Togepi is pretty rare in Pokémon Sword. It can be found in the Wild Area, specifically The Bridge Field, which is located between Motostoke and Hammerlocke. The area is usually bombarded with different weather conditions such as Snowstorms and Rain.

Togepi won’t spawn in the Overworld, so you can only see it in random grass encounters. Your best chance of catching it is during foggy conditions, which gives you a 5% chance of encountering a Togepi. On the other hand, in normal and overcast conditions, you only have a 2% chance of encountering it.

Togepi can spawn at levels 26 to 28, so you must have at least two Gym badges for you to catch it.

How Does Togepi Evolve?

As mentioned earlier, Togepi is not a strong Pokémon, to begin with. However, its evolutionary forms are strong and can make a far more significant contribution to your team composition.

Evolving Togepi involves Friendship levels or Happiness levels and the use of evolution stones. To evolve your Togepi into a Togetic, it must reach a Happiness level of 220.

You can boost your Togepi’s Happiness level by letting it hold a Soothe Bell, keeping it in your party, battling with it, not letting it faint, and playing with it in camp.

And though there is no concrete way of knowing your Pokemon’s Happiness level in Pokémon Sword, here's how you can get an idea of its progress:

  1. First, head to Hammerlocke.
  2. Enter the building found on the right side of the Pokémon Center.
  3. Talk to the little boy. What he says can help you determine the Happiness level of your Pokémon.

You can refer to other articles regarding the various phrases, but look out for this phrase in particular: “You two get along great! Together is always better—am I right?”.

When he says this, it means your Togepi has reached the 200 - 229 Happiness level and is either ready to evolve or extremely close to doing so.

Though evolving to Togetic requires a lot of work, it is actually super easy to evolve it again into its final evolutionary form, Togekiss. All you need is a Shiny Stone to completely evolve your innocent Togepi into the powerful Togekiss.

Wrapping Up

Togepi is a rare Pokémon in Pokémon Sword, with only a 2% encounter rate in normal and overcast conditions and 5% in foggy weather.

You can normally find it in Bridge Field in the Wild Area. It is worth the catch though, as it can evolve into a Togekiss, which can be a valuable asset to your team.
