Pokemon Sword and Shield ditched a good portion of the National Pokedex, but that doesn’t mean all of the former Pokemon are gone, as Togepi makes a return – and here’s where you can find one.

While Togepi is one of the rarest Pokemon out there, its popularity dates all the way back to the Indigo League arc of the anime, where one was famously carried around by gym leader Misty.

Togepi is arguably the cutest Pokemon across any generation, so getting one is always a priority for players – especially if filling out the Pokedex is also one of their main goals.

This rare Pokemon is available in both Sword and Shield, so it won’t matter what version of the game fans own. But where exactly can they find these adorable critters?

Where to find Togepi

Pokemon / NintendoFoggy weather will be the best conditions to find Togepi.

The Bridge Field is where you’ll want to be if you’re looking to catch a Togepi, and this goes for both Sword and Shield. According to Serebii.net, you’ll have a 5% chance of finding one in foggy weather, and just a 2% chance to find it in normal and overcast conditions.

When you do find one, it’ll be between levels 26 and 28. This means you’ll need to spend plenty of time searching for one if you want to truly fill out your Pokedex.

How to evolve Togepi

BulbapediaThe Shiny Stone is needed to get Togepi’s final evolution.

Now that you have a Togepi in your possession, you might want to consider evolving it. Togepi doesn’t evolve like most other Pokemon, where you have you have to reach a certain level. Instead, Togepi can only be evolved by giving it a bunch of love.

Togepi will evolve into Togetic once it reaches 220 happiness, so make sure you keep it content. In fact, Togetic isn’t even Togepi’s final form, and you can evolve it one more time.

To evolve Togetic into Togekiss, you’ll have to use a Shiny Stone. It’s a nice 3-for-1 deal that will fill out a good chunk of your Pokedex with just one Pokemon.

While Togepi was able to make the cut for this game, many older ones didn’t and fans weren’t very happy with that decision. Currently, Pokemon Sword is sitting at a 4.1 user score on Metacritic, while critics were much kinder.

Despite the negative fan reception, sales have been great, so the outspoken fans didn’t seem to have much impact.

The Pokemon Trading Card Game hobby was rocked in November when a man rediscovered his mind-blowing complete collection of the rare 1999 Base Set. The fan has stacks of every character, including hundreds of Charizards.

Despite releasing decades ago, the Pokemon TCG has seen a major explosion in value in 2020. Cards once traded on playgrounds and stuffed into 90s children’s binders are now selling for as much as a sports car. 

A man went viral after discovering their collection may be one of the most complete sets to ever exist. The fan’s unfathomable amount of rare collectibles could actually have an impact on the future of the hobby’s prices.

Pokemon fan discovers TCG collection is worth millions

Pokemon cards have never been more popular this year as the collectible hobby has now even taken over platforms such as YouTube and Twitch. Celebrities such as former rapper Logic are dropping hundreds of thousands of dollars to scoop up the rare Nintendo items. 

On November 22, a video went viral online of a man showing off his mind-blowing collection that has many collectors turning their heads. “Literally got all of my Pokemons stuff out of the loft from my recent move,” YouTuber PokeMans Alex explained before showing off his astonishing collection.

Holding up a stack of rare holographic cards from the 1999 base set, the fan exclaimed, “As you can see they are mint, and have not been touched for so long.” The TCG collector then revealed his unprecedented number of Charizards. “I don’t know if you are ready for this,” he warned, before holding up a stack of 111 cards of the rare starter ‘mon.

To put that into perspective, in October a PSA graded 10 of the same item is now selling for $30k alone. The content creator emptied over seven binders on his table to reveal a 1999 base set that was not only complete, but also had stacks of over 50 of the same card for every single character.“I’m ready to put all of these away back in the safe where they are now gonna stay,” he said.

Veteran Pokemon card YouTuber PokeRev reacted to the video on November 26 and exclaimed, “Did you open all these packs as a kid? It’s just an insane amount of holo cards. When we were kids, just to get a couple holos from the base set was really good. But to have thousands is insane!”

Other famous collectors such as British rapper Randolph commented, “Unreal mate.” Gaming YouTuber Ali A wrote, “How did you originally collect SO many cards!? Are you looking to sell any of them?”

At the time of writing, it’s unclear just how much the YouTuber’s incredible Pokemon haul is worth. None of the collectibles have actually been looked at by professional grading companies PSA or Beckett. And the majority of its value revolves around its condition and score.

A set of this magnitude is unprecedented and could have a severe impact on what TCG cards are worth in the future. A big factor in an item’s selling price hinges on it having a low population. PokeMans Alex’s collection could soon flood the market should he decide to get things graded.
