I tried skill swap, but the game doesn't actually tell you what ability you get in return. I'm trying to get a Modest/Timid Togepi with Serene Grace. Help please?

Catch until you get the ability you want. Everstone. Breed like rabbits.

Or just a male (?) one and breed with female Ditto with desired nature (I seem to recall that Ditto had to be the female in the pair). Everstone. Breed like rabbits.

Rinse and repeat until you get the ability and nature you want.

Well a Pokemon with the Synchronize ability in the lead of your party has a 50% chance of attracting a wild Pokemon that shares it's nature. So you could help narrow it down a bit that way.
