Here's where to find and how to evolve Togepi in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Where to find Togepi
Let's start with the easy part. Togepi can be found in the Bridge Field region of the Galar map. Go ahead, but keep a few things in mind. Togepi is a rare Pokémon in Sword and Shield, so be prepared to spend some time on it. In most conditions, one only creates 2% of the time, while heavy fog increases up to 5%. Also, they will only appear as random and surprise encounters. He's not going to spawn in the overworld like other characters, so don't wander around looking for a character in the tall grass. Instead, you need to go there and look for the red exclamation points, then rush there. If you come across one, you'll want to try catching it using a friend or deluxe ball for reasons that will become clear later. Once you get one, you'll want to know how to turn it into Togetic and Togekiss.
How To Evolve Togepi
Togepi does not evolve easily. The key to evolving Togepi into Togetic is to make her happy. Every creature in the game has a happiness factor behind some of its actions. You need to raise this level quite high before Togepi evolves, so you'll want to know how to make Pokemon happy. The short answer is to include him in battles and on your team, feed him curry in camps, give him berries and vitamins, and have him hold an appease bell if you have one. Do all of this and your Togepi will eventually evolve into Togetic. After that, all it takes to become Togekiss 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.
