Togekiss is a Tier 3 raid boss in Pokémon Go and is a part of the Pokémon Air Adventures Event, running from May 3rd, 10 AM – May 8th, 8 PM, 2022.
Being a Fairy and type, it is weak to the Electric, Ice, Poison, Rock and Steel types.
Togekiss is arguably the most feared Fairy type in the Master League while also enjoying a dominating run in the Ultra League. With a knack for taming the almighty Dragon types and the powerful Fighting types, Togekiss is a ‘charming’ addition to any battle. As such, pursuing a high IV Togekiss is undoubtedly worth your time and resources.
Togekiss can be caught with the following CP values:
- 1822 – 1904 CP at Level 20, no weather boost
- 2278 – 2380 CP at Level 25 with Cloudy or Windy weather boost
Generally, 1 high-level trainer can beat Togekiss with optimal counters. Otherwise, 2-3 trainers will suffice in taking down this nightmare fairy easily.
