The next day, Sophocles had Togedemaru run on a wheel to power up his program. Then, Sophocles challenged Ash and Pikachu. They were both piercing balloons as a challenge. Pikachu went to use Thunderbolt, but Togedemaru absorbed the attack with Lightning Rod. Next, Togedemaru used Zing Zap and spinned around to pierce the balloons, making Sophocles the winner of the challenge. Togedemaru was with her trainer, who went with Ash to see what new Pokémon he would catch in the forest. Togedemaru also watched as Team Rocket appeared, who threatened to steal all their Pokémon, and how they were dragged by a Bewear. After Ash's Pikachu got hurt in a battle against Grubbin, Togedemaru went with her trainer away to report to Professor Kukui what happened. Togedemaru went with her trainer to go fishing and watched as Ash and Lana were rescuing the Pokémon Team Rocket stole.
Sophocles went with Togedemaru to the Melemele Island's mall. There, they encountered Ash, who was going to buy some groceries. Togedemaru tackled Pikachu and tried to hug him, showing her affection towards him. Togedemaru curled herself and started rolling and accidentally bumped into Ash, due to her excitement. After having some ice cream, the group went through the mall. Suddenly, the security system was triggered, causing Ash and Sophocles to be split from Pikachu, Togedemaru and Rotom. Since neither side could bash the door, they decided to go to the power supply room. Pikachu and Togedemaru followed Rotom, who showed a vent shaft they could go through to the room. Since Togedemaru couldn't climb, Pikachu offered to help her get up. Surprisingly, Togedemaru was already at the vent shaft, which surprised Pikachu, who fell down, but quickly went back up. After exiting the shaft, the Pokémon faced Team Rocket, whose Mimikyu started to attack Pikachu. One of Mimikyu's Shadow Ball attacks nearly hit Togedemaru, so Pikachu took the hit and was blown away onto the next building's window. Once Ash and Sophocles arrived, the latter had an idea and tell the former order Pikachu to use Thunderbolt. Pikachu did so and Togedemaru absorbed the attack with her Lighting Rod ability, allowing her to use Zing Zap to electrocute Team Rocket. After Team Rocket was taken by Bewear and Pikachu was rescued by Ash's Rowlet, Togedemaru started showing her affection on Pikachu again, trying to hug him. Sophocles also mentioned Togedemaru was a girl, while Ash remarked how powerful their teamwork was. Later, Togedemaru went with Sophocles and Ash, who encountered Professor Kukui and his Rockruff, the former promising to take them all to the restaurant.
Togedemaru was with her trainer when Ash explained the "Litten situation". The class spoke about the Rattata and Raticate problem and found out the solution were Yungoos and Gumshoos. Their yelling startled Togedemaru, who ran in circles and knocked Lana's Popplio and Mallow's Bounsweet off the table. Pikachu managed to stop and calm her down, but Togedemaru started showing affection towards him. Togedemaru, along with her trainer, was at the party to celebrate Ash and his Pokémon's Grand Trial of Melemele Island victory. Sophocles and Togedemaru spent a day on the beach with Sophocles' classmates. Togedmaru played with Sophocles in the water. She also went to hit the bubble in volleyball, but failed and fell into the sand.
Sophocles and Togedemaru enlisted for the Pokémon Pancake Race. Since Sophocles dropped pancakes in the balance course, he was disqualified from the race. Sophocles went to tell this to Togedemaru, who became furious and extended her spikes to punish Sophocles. The next day, Togedmaru watched as Lillie's egg hatched into a white Vulpix and Samson Oak's egg into red Vulpix. While the white one, Shiron, ignored the group, the red one wanted to play with the others. The next day, after Lillie befriended Shiron and hugged it, Shiron was more interested in playing with the class's Pokémon.
