Togekiss is arguably the strongest Pokémon in the Video Game Championship (VGC) 2020 format. It is also very difficult to find in Pokémon Sword and Shield. Here’s how to get your hands on one.
The best way to find Togekiss is in Max Raid Battles. This is also the only way you can get the Pokémon with its Hidden Ability, Super Luck. Otherwise, you would have to trade one over or transfer it in from a previous game. It appears in Den 33 in Hammerlocke Hills and Rolling Fields in the Wild Area.
Togekiss can also spawn in the air in the Wild Area’s Dusty Bowl in Foggy weather. It won’t have its Hidden Ability, but it may be easier to find this way if the weather is right.
How to find and evolve Togepi and Togetic
Alternatively, you can obtain Togekiss through evolution. Togepi evolves into Togetic, who evolves into Togekiss. Both Togepi and Togetic can also appear in Max Raid Battles and in the wild. Keep in mind, however, that these Pokémon will never have their Hidden Ability.
Togepi appears in the Bridge Field zone of the Wild Area as a random encounter in Normal, Overcast, and Foggy weather. It only has a two percent chance of appearing in Normal and Overcast Weather, while it has a five percent chance to spawn in Fog. Togetic flies around in the Dusty Bowl in the Fog like Togekiss, but it has a much higher chance of appearing.
Togepi evolves into Togetic through friendship. To increase friendship, you can feed it certain berries or play with it in the Pokémon Camp. Making good curry will raise its friendship level by a lot. Once you have Togetic, you can evolve it into Togekiss by giving it a Shiny Stone. You can find a Shiny Stone in the Lake of Outrage.
At this point, you can breed for a Togepi with competitive stats. Keep in mind that Togepi itself cannot have eggs because it’s a baby Pokémon. You’ll need to at least evolve it to Togetic if you want it to breed.
