How to Evolve Togepi?

Want to know how to evolve Togepi? Not a surprise, Togepi is one of the most popular Pokémon within the game, and has also starred in the anime where it had Misty as a trainer. When you also add in that Togekiss, the eventual evolution of Togepi, is a very powerful competitive battler, you realise just why so many people want to learn how to Togepi!

The good news that it is not hard to learn how to evolve Togepi, in fact it just involves a basic understanding of a few concepts within Pokémon. Which is far easier than something like a Tyrogue evolution, which gets very complex indeed!

The Basics of Evolving Togepi into Togetic

The next stage of evolution for Togepi is Togetic. This is not achieved in the traditional 'evolves at level 20' or whatever that you might find with a Poochyena evolution (it evolves into Mightyena at level 20), but by another method.

The system used for this style of evolution is the 'happiness' evolution, and it is a game mechanic within Pokémon that measures how happy they would consider a Pokémon. Once Togepi reaches 220 in happiness then it evolves upon reaching the next level (done in the traditional way of gaining exp points).

How to Increase a Pokemon's Happiness

So with that in mind, we need to go about increasing the happiness of our Togepi so that it evolves into Togetic. How do we do this?

There are a number of ways, such as gaining a level, or using an item. Beware though, there are ways of lowering the happiness of a Pokémon too! Take a look at the table below for a better explanation.

I just want to make sure, but it says that using Energy Powder lowers it's happiness by 5, does this also happen with Potions or no? I just want to be safe about it
