Piplup (Japaneseポッチャマ Pochama) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV.

It evolves into Prinplup starting at level 16, which evolves into Empoleon starting at level 36.

Along with Turtwig and Chimchar, Piplup is one of three starter Pokémon of Sinnoh available at the beginning of Pokémon Diamond, PearlPlatinumBrilliant Diamond, and Shining Pearl.

Biology

 
Piplup rejecting food

Piplup is a light-blue, penguin-like Pokémon, which is covered in thick down to insulate against the cold. It has a dark blue head with a primarily white face and a short, yellow beak. The dark blue feathers on its head extend down its back and around its neck, which causes it to appear to be wearing a cape. There are two white ovals on its chest and a small, light-blue marking resembles a crown above its beak. It has flipper-like arms and yellow feet with three toes each.

Piplup has a strong sense of self-pride. Because of its pride, it has a hard time accepting food from humans and bonding with its caretakers. It will even puff out its chest after it falls down, which it often does due to its poor walking abilities. However, it is a skilled swimmer that can dive for over ten minutes in order to hunt. It has also been shown to fly short distances in the anime. It lives along the seashore in colder climates.

Back at Rowan's lab, Dawn chose Piplup as her starter Pokémon. Since then, he has been her main Pokémon and has been mostly seen outside of his Poké Ball.

Trophy information

A Penguin Pokémon. It's one of the starter Pokémon received from Professor Rowan when the player departs from the Sinnoh region. It's a Water type, so it's strong versus Rock and Grounds. It's very cute but filled with pride--it hates to accept food from people. When it levels up, it evolves into Prinplup.

Super Smash Bros. for Wii U

While Piplup no longer appears from Poké Balls, having been replaced by Oshawott, it makes a cameo appearance in the Kalos Pokémon League stage. When the stage transitions to the Flood Chamber, it can be seen in the background along with BlastoiseWailord, and Clawitzer.

Trophy information

You wouldn't think it from its adorable exterior, but this Pokémon is very proud and often won't listen to its Trainer. When it walks on land, it waddles and even falls over sometimes, all in a suitably cute way, but once it's in the water you'll see its true potential. It's a skilled swimmer and can dive for over ten minutes at a time to hunt.

Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Piplup appears as a Spirit.

He is later found by Zorua and Zoroark and announces that he wishes to stay in Wish Park so he can help the Pokémon who are coaxed into coming. Piplup is later taken by Gothitelle in exchange for setting Victini free, where he is then manipulated by Darkrai. Piplup later awakens Pikachu from Darkrai's nightmare and encourages Pikachu to seek out his missing friends after their memories were taken by Darkrai right before the final battle.

Trivia

  • Piplup shares its category with its evolved form and Eiscue. They are all known as the Penguin Pokémon.
  • Piplup is the most selected Sinnoh starter Pokémon in the anime, being the starter Pokémon of DawnKenny, and Tyler.
  • Piplup was designed by Yusuke Ohmura.
  • In February 2007, it was believed that Piplup's localization name was the same as its Japanese name, Pochama, due to the claim made by a piece of merchandise at Toy Fair. But this was conflicted later by another item at Toy Fair again by the merchandise named "Piplup".

Origin

Piplup is likely based on a young penguin, possibly an emperor penguin chick. The light blue crown-shaped marking above its beak may have also been inspired by emperor penguins.

Name origin

Piplup is derived from plop or plup from the sound of a pebble hitting water.[1] It may also incorporate pip, a stage of growth in baby birds immediately before they hatch from the eggshell.

Pochama is derived from ぽちゃぽちゃ pochapocha (the sound of a pebble splashing in water).[1] It may also incorporate 坊っちゃま botchama (child).
