As it turns out, the reality of the situation was far far more disappointing than the cartoons led him to believe, as Togepi isn't at all useful, and its Metronome is nearly useless, going so far as backfiring on Togepi every time. Being a baby, Togepi can't carry on conversation or provide much mental stimulation, and ends up being sort of a dull chore for the time being. Everyone tells Kirby to just admit to buying the ruse (no shame in that), call it a loss and that perhaps put Togepi up for adoption, but Kirby stubbornly believes that it'll pay off in the future, and one day Kirby will have his own "Charlotte". They'll see. They'll all see!
