    Togekiss was necessary. To make Auraholics and obsessed Misty fans angry. And to fill Dawn's sixth slot. And to debut it's species.

    I was hoping for it to be the evil Togepi, but it didn't. I still loved this Togekiss' character though.

    She was just a late addition. A very late one. It was necessary, but not much. I like Togekiss and how writers handled her; she had good battles, and filled her role decently; but I wish she came earlier. Much earlier.

    Yet we didn't see any of this dodging in the crucial moment. Hikari could have ordered it to dodge like that, but it didn't. She didn't think to use its strengths at all.

    That is only needed for the GF (seemingly) so well, we could have just had Eteboth return for one of the rounds.

    That's just silly, the writers aren't dedicated to making fans angry or anything.

    And to fill Dawn's sixth slot.
    Which wouldn't have had to have been filled in the first place if they let her keep Ambipom. Or even had the poor monkey appear for a battle or something.

    And to debut it's species.
    Which could've been done perfectly well in a filler. Hell, that princess kid could've been inspired to participate in contests without giving Dawn her Pokemon, couldn't she? C'mon, writers, think a little.

    There are other people reading this thread who don't realize that the writers aren't out to make their lives miserable. I guarantee it.

    Is it bad that I don't care too much that Ambipom left Dawn's team? To be completely honest, I'd prefer Togekiss to Ambipom.

    Ambipom probably left Dawn's team so that the writers would be able to have a chance to give Dawn another pokemon in the future. So instead of just getting Cyndaquil, she got Cyndaquil and Togekiss.

    And to be honest, late captures in the anime aren't that surprising anymore. If Dawn leaves and then visits Ash in the future, there's no doubt we'd see it again anyway. And at least it's getting screentime since its capture. As for the purpose of Togekiss on Dawn's team, I agree on the point that Togekiss was a new pokemon, a surprise factor I guess you could say, in the battle against Zoey (to mirror Zoey's Gallade). It was the new pokemon/starters in that contest battle and I personally thought it was a great show despite its loss. And Dawn did have that training episode with it so it went along to help Dawn train for the GF as well.

    But yeah, imo, I'm okay with Togekiss.

    Lame addition was lame. At least it meant we didn't see a final battle involving Piplup, who I still hate.

    I guess the writers wanted a major character to have a Togekiss, but I think Zoey could have had one instead. We all knew Misty would never get Togekiss, but why give one to Dawn when she had Ambipom?

    I think Zoey should have had the Togekiss.

    I think Zoey should have had the Togekiss.
    I think Gallade fits Zoey much more than Togekiss... and Togekiss fits Dawn too
    Also, again, they probably wanted the Dawn VS Zoey battle to be mascot + brand new surprise Poké... Johanna/Brock/Ash actually talked about how they're both using new Poké, so it's pretty obvious that was their intention

    Yah, I felt Togekiss was a waste of time too.
    They caught it way too late in the series.
    Should have caught it early on, showed her training it a bit.
    Showed Dawn catch Togekiss some other how, cuz I felt it was kind of a cheat. It should have been a wild one, she battle it and catch it.
    Just feels silly to see it just be given to her by some one else, raised by some one else yah know? Also, should have had a few Zoey battles with it before the Grand Festival.
    Ash fan. Multi Ash shipper =]

    It was just added way too late. I don't remember it just because we just didn't see it until like 10 eps ago, and then it was only in a few eps kinda getting shoved down our throats. I just don't terribly equate it to Dawn much, which really is a shame cause I'm sure if we just saw it a bit more it would be a lot more well liked.

    Dawn's Togekiss is a sweetheart, such a shame it really didn't get any wins for Dawn. One really does have to wonder, how could it benefit Dawn in any way?
