Dawn's Togekiss (Japanese: ヒカリのトゲキッス Hikari's Togekiss) is the eighth Pokémon obtained by Dawn.

History

Dawn and Togekiss

Togekiss originally belonged to Princess Salvia, a doppelgänger of Dawn, who wished to compete in a Pokémon Contest to see what it was like. As the two had a near-identical appearance, they switched lives for a short time, with Dawn secretly becoming Salvia, and Salvia, dressed as Dawn, using Togekiss in the Arrowroot Town contest. Doing very well for her first contest, Salvia managed to win the ribbon from the contest, but gave it to her opponent, Jessilina, instead, as Dawn already had the required ribbons for entry into the Grand Festival. To allow it to continue competing in contests, Salvia gave Togekiss to Dawn.

In With the Easiest of Grace!, Dawn began training Togekiss for the Grand Festival, during which she became fast friends with Piplup. Ash volunteered to used Gible against Togekiss for a training match, and while the two were evenly-matched, Togekiss's motherly instincts came to the fore when she shielded Piplup from Gible's still unreliable Draco Meteor. Togekiss then talked with Gible, warning him to be more careful with his moves which made Gible regret his past carelessness.

Togekiss being motherly

Dawn initially had difficulties battling with Togekiss, as she only would use graceful moves in battle. However Dawn soon realized that instead of Togekiss changing to suit Dawn, Dawn should instead change her strategy to suit Togekiss's strengths. This new strategy was later used to win against Jessie and Yanmega, who were looking for revenge on Dawn and Togekiss for their defeat in the contest. Togekiss continued her training in Dealing With a Fierce Double Ditto Drama! and Opposites Interact! alongside Dawn's other Pokémon.

Togekiss was used alongside Piplup in the finals of the Sinnoh Grand Festival against Zoey's Glameow and Gallade in A Grand Fight for Winning!. Togekiss used her best moves, and managed to surprise Zoey that had never had the opportunity to know the potential of the Jubilee Pokémon. However, Togekiss was unable to hit Zoey's Pokémon directly, because of their elusiveness and speed, but still managed to bring down Zoey's points thanks to its grace, such as when dodging with elegance Gallade's Vacuum Wave. In the end, even after using a wonderful Sky Attack-Peck combination with the help of Piplup, the two Pokémon lost the final.

Togekiss reappeared in For The Love Of Meowth, where she searched for Mamie's Glameow and where it battled (and lost) against an over-powered Meowth who had fallen in love with the same Glameow.

Togekiss's final appearance as of yet was in Memories are Made of Bliss! where she consoled Piplup when he became heart-broken over Pikachu leaving.

Moves improvised

  • Aura Whirlpool was used in the final battle of the Sinnoh Grand Festival against Zoey. For the move, after Piplup launched a Whirlpool Togekiss would then fire an Aura Sphere inside, causing the Whirlpool to turn light blue. Using this move, Piplup and Togekiss were able to successfully counter Glameow and Gallade's Signal-Tail combination
  • Rocket Formation was also used in the final battle of the Sinnoh Grand Festival against her long-time rival Zoey in A Grand Fight for Winning!. Dawn orders Togekiss to utilize Sky Attack while having Piplup on her back, and consequently she orders Piplup to use Peck. It results in a crimson aura surrounding both the Pokémon resembling a Rocket.
