Pokemon Legends: Arceus is set in the old times in the Pokemon world at a time when it was rare to find harmony between people and Pokemon. Set in the land of the Hisui region, known as the Sinnoh region in modern times, you’ll join the Galaxy Expedition Team (or just Galaxy Team for short) as a member of the Survey Corps stationed in Jubilife Village. You will be tasked to meet every species of Pokémon from the Hisui region to complete the region’s first-ever Pokédex.
In the game, there are certain Pokemon that have special requirements for them to evolve. One of these Pokemon is Togepi, and in this guide, you will learn how to evolve Togepi into a Togetic!
Togepi into Togetic
Togetic is a Fairy and Flying-type Happiness Pokemon with a white body, a long neck, long legs, a pair of wings, and triangle patterns on its body that are colored red and blue. According to its Pokedex entry in the game, there are rumors that Togetic evolves under the care of its trusted human companion, to which Togetic gives great joy.
Togetic can be found in the Crimson Mirelands (in Bolderoll Slope and Cottonsedge Prairie) and the Cobalt Coastlands (northeast of Tranquility Cove) and Togetic can only be found in these locations during the day but can be found in these locations in every weather condition. Aside from that, Togetic can be found in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Cobalt Coastlands.
An alternative for catching a Togetic is through evolution. To do that, the player must evolve into a Togepi with a High Friendship Level. First, the player should know where to find a Togepi.
The player can find a Togepi in the Crimson Mirelands (in Cottonsedge Prairie) and the Cobalt Coastlands (in Bathers’ Lagoon and northeast of Tranquility Cove). Togepi can only be found in these locations during the day but can be found in these locations in every weather condition. Aside from that, Togepi can be found in Massive Mass Outbreaks in the Cobalt Coastlands.
If you plan on distracting it with food before catching it, it is worth mentioning that Togepi’s preferred foods are Dazzling Honey, Hearty Grains, and Plump Beans.
Suppose you plan on battling a Togepi first before catching it. In that case, it is worth noting that Togepi is a Fairy-type Pokemon which means it has a weakness to Poison-type and Steel-type moves (super effective), a resistance to the Bug-type, Dark-type, and Fighting-type moves (not very effective), and immunity to Dragon-type moves (no effect).
Now that the player has caught a Togepi, all that is needed to evolve a Togepi into Togetic is for the player’s Togepi to have at least a High Friendship Level.
To increase a Pokemon’s Friendship Level, the player should keep the Pokemon in the player’s party, use the Pokemon in battles, not let the Pokemon faint in battle, and use the Pokemon to gather materials from trees and ores.
To check your Pokemon’s Friendship Level, head on to the Friendship Checker Belamy, which can be found a little bit south of the Pastures in the eastern part of Jubilife Village (Belamy is the man dressed in blue).
However, it is important to note that the Friendship Checker is not available right at the start of the game. To unlock the Friendship Checker, the player must complete the “Measuring Your Compatibility” Request (request 28). After that, the player can now talk to Belamy and select the Pokemon you want to check for the Friendship Level. The following is the actual Friendship Level based on Belamy’s Description:
|Friendship Level||Belamy’s Description|
|Base Friendship||“[Your Pokemon] seems leery of you yet. New to the team, perhaps?”|
|Low||“I suppose [your Pokemon]’s become a bit friendly toward you, but you’ve a ways to go…”|
|Mid||“[Your Pokemon] seems to get on well with you. But I’m sure it could get on better!”|
|High||“You and [your Pokemon] seem to be fast friends. You must be quite good companions!”|
|Highest||“What an excellent pair of friends you and [your Pokemon] make. You must mean a lot to each other!”|
As for Togepi, the player’s Togepi must be on the High or Highest Friendship Level to evolve to Togetic.
After catching a Togepi and raising its Friendship Level to High or Highest, the player can now evolve a Togepi into a Togetic!
To do that, this is what the player must do:
- If it is not already there, put the player’s Togepi in the Player’s party by talking to the Galaxy Member near the tent on any of the Base Camps and selecting “I want to see my Pokemon” on the prompt, or heading to the Pastures in the eastern part of Jubilife Village.
- Then, return to the game and press the up-directional button to open the player’s Satchel.
- Select the player’s Togepi, which has a glowing Poke Ball beside its name, indicating that the Pokemon is ready to evolve. Select Evolve on the prompt, confirm on the next prompt to evolve Togepi, then, just like that, Togepi will evolve into a Togetic!
Now that the player has a Togetic, the player can try to use the Togetic to complete other requests, missions, or Arceus’ task for the player, which is to catch ‘em all!
