How to evolve Togepi in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet 

Pokémon Scarlet and Violet currently feature over 400 of the titular pocket monsters, but if you’re keeping count, that’s less than half of the 1,008 Pokémon now available across different games. This means not every Pokémon made the cut in Scarlet and Violet, and Togepi and its evolutionary line are included in those omissions. Pokémon Sword and Shield added more Pokémon with updates and DLC, so with any luck Togepi cracks into the Paldea Pokédex soon.

How to evolve Togepi in Pokémon Legends Arceus 

Evolving Togepi into Togetic in Pokémon Legends Arceus is a little complicated, like in many mainline games. Togepi doesn’t evolve at a certain level, instead, it evolves as its friendship level increases. To increase your friendship with Togepi, follow these instructions.

  • Battle with it and make sure it doesn’t faint
  • Give Togepi experience candies or healing items
  • Collect items and materials with it
  • Once its friendship level is high enough, the Pokéball icon next to it in the menu blinks
  • Click the icon to evolve your Togepi into Togetic

To evolve Togetic into Togekiss, you must use an item known as the shiny stone. There’s a slim chance you might find a shiny stone as you inspect any mineral deposit throughout Hisui. Alternatively, you can purchase a shiny stone from the Merit Shop next to Galaxy Hall, for 1200 merit points. To earn more merit points, connect online, and pick up as many lost satchels as you can while you explore.
