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

PIPLUP

Piplup (Japanese: ポッチャマ Pochama) is a Water-type Pokémon. Piplup is a penguin-like Pokémon, which is covered in thick fur 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. In the later part you will find out how effectively you can use the Moveset, Stats, Weakness or strength you will get from Piplup Evolution.

HOW TO EVOLVE?Piplup Pokémon | Evolution, Weakness, Moveset, Stats, And More!

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

HOW MUCH USEFUL IS MY PIPLUP?

Piplup should focus on hazard control and not be used for offensive purposes, as its offensive presence is incredibly low. It performs best when coming in on a slow Volt Switch or U-turn, as it doesn’t get worn down as quickly. Piplup functions as a decent lead, as it can beat other common leads like Onix and Dwebble. It also has good bulk, so it can usually switch in on resisted and neutral hits.

However, Piplup lacks recovery, so try to avoid switching it in often, especially into powerful attacks like Pawniard’s Knock Off and Doduo’s Brave Bird. Be careful about using Defog if there is a Pawniard on the other team, as it can switch in and get a +2 Attack boost thanks to Defiant. Finally, Defog can remove all hazards, including the ones you’ve set, so it can be counterproductive if used directly after Stealth Rock. Try using Defog before using Stealth Rock.

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

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