Piplup is a Water-type Pokémon that first appeared in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. It evolves to Prinplup at level 16, which evolves to Empoleon at level 36, and along with Turtwig and Chimchar, it is one of the Starter Pokémon of the Sinnoh region. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it can be spawned from a Poké Ball and attacks by using Surf; when summoned, it will create a wave around itself and dash towards an end of the stage, pushing any opponent that gets caught along with it. It will move in the other direction if it hits a wall, and will not stop moving even if it falls off the stage.

In Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS / Wii U, it is replaced by Oshawott as a Poké Ball Pokémon. However, Piplup makes a cameo appearance in Kalos Pokémon League stage in the Wii U version.

Piplup BrawlTrophy204.png DS Pokémon Diamond/Pearl 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 Ground types. It's very cute but filled with pride-- it hates to accept food from people. When it levels up, it evolves into Prinplup.

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 suitable cuit way. But once it's in the water, you'll see its true potential. It's a skilled swimmer and can dive for over 10 minutes at a time to hunt.
