Physiology and Behaviour
Main Pokémon games
Togepi first appeared in the second generation of Pokémon games which initially consisted of Pokémon Gold and Silver and later Pokémon Crystal. In the games it could be obtained by coming in possession of an egg from Professor Elm's assistant and hatching it by traveling the game's world. Following the second generation games it could be found in every Pokémon game either by finding it in an egg, via Poké Radar or through trading. In Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen a Togepi egg could be hatched from an egg. In Pokémon Diamond and Pearl it could be found via Poké Radar on Route 230 (it could also be obtained this way in Pokémon Platinum, which also contained a Togepi egg). Togepi's role in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver mimicked its role in Gold and Silver.
Other Pokémon games
Super Smash Bros. series
In the game Super Smash Bros. Melee, Togepi was a character inside a Poké Ball. It most likely used Metronome, as the move varied each time, from earthquakes to fire. The following is Togepi's trophy description from that game:
"These adorable Spike Ball Pokémon hatch from eggs given out by Professor Elm's assistant. Common superstition holds that their shells are chock-full of happiness and that they become good-luck charms when handled with kindness. It's impossible to predict which ability a Togepi will call upon when it uses its Metronome move, so you'd better be ready!"
