Empoleon Pokémon | Evolution, Weakness, Moveset, Stats, And More!


Empoleon or in Japanese, Emperte is a dual-type Water/Steel Pokémon introduced in Generation IV. It evolves from Prinplup starting at level 36. It is the final form of Piplup. The Empoleon evolution brings some of the best Moveset especially when it comes to exploit the weakness of rivals in the Gym attacks.

Empoleon is a penguin-like tall, navy blue Pokémon. It has a large, yellow beak extending upward through three pointed horns creating a trident-shaped bracketing blue head. Big Horns symbolize Empoleon ‘s leadership and power. There is a blue marking above his eyes which represents a crown and a white, lacy marking running down his arm. A dark, fin-like projection creates a collar around its neck, extending down its chest and stomach side. There are two extended, gold bumps on its back and a second blue fin surrounding its neck. Her yellow feet are webbed with three toes each, her feathers forming ruffs above her feet. The edges of these wings can slice through ice floes, and this Pokémon will use them to attack anyone or anything that damages its pride.

How Much Useful Is My Empoleon?

Although Empoleon is a Pokémon type of water/steel, it can learn a variety of attacks of the type Water, Ice, Steel, and Flying. Also, it can learn many moves involving claws like Metal Claw and Shadow Claw. It will practice Hydro Pump, a very strong manoeuvre of the water form. Metal Claw and Hydro Cannon are the strongest moves for Empoleon as they attack Pokémon in Gyms. This combination of movements has the highest total DPS and is the best moveset for PVP battles too.

So, does the Moveset, weakness, and other information seem worthy of Empoleon Evolution? Then right away head to Empoleon Evolution.

And if the case is otherwise then you may like to see some other Pokemon Evolution rather than the one for Empoleon and can see for whatever Moveset, weakness, and other specification suits better. Visit Herald Journalism for that!
