Togari (Japanese: トガリ Togari) is a member of Team Plasma in Pocket Monsters BW: The Heroes of Fire and Thunder.


Togari appears to be a rival towards Shin, often battling him and becoming a recurring foe that he encounters. Togari would change around strategies in each battle in order for them to get tougher. However, Shin has gotten through his strategies every time. Unlike most other grunts, he has a horn on his forehead.


Togari first appears in Justice Trainer Shin Appears! where he steals a girl's Cottonee and Shin arrives to stop him from doing so. They have a battle with Shin becoming the winner.

Afterwards, he has two grunts take N's Purrloin. When Tepig tackled one of the grunts, he tossed Purrloin over to the other one and then to Togari. Togari runs off with Purrloin, with N and Shin in pursuit.

N and Shin finds him in a rocky plateau where Togari has his rematch with Shin. Despite using some new and improved strategies, he still lost to Shin and N retrieved Purrloin in the process.

Togari is next seen in the Dragonspiral Tower in The King's Identity...!! where he battles Shin in order for N, their king, to awaken Zekrom. After defeat, he is seen leaving the Dragonspiral Tower with Seismitoad carrying him.
