Revision as of 12:39, 11 March 2009 by Kevzo8 (talk | contribs) (Well.: no touching of sig..)


I think Pochama used Bide aganist the Ariados...I'm not sure though. -Sketchies 23:38, 30 September 2006 (UTC)

It did. - Paperfairy @ 20:35 03/19/2007

Piplup's voice

I think Piplup is voiced by Jamie Peacock cause in a way it sounds like Ash's Cyndaquil. - unsigned comment from Livinlarge18 (talkcontribs)

That could be true... Though I can't be sure because they never list the voices for Pokémon in the credits (except for Pikachu). --ケンジガール 01:53, 1 October 2007 (UTC)


Could it be said that Piplup might not evolve? It knows Whirlpool which is a level 32 move, and evolves into Prinplup at level 16... Or would that be purely speculation? - Constant 10:31, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

seeing how much time it's spent out of the pokeball,and as it's dawn's signature pokemon(much like ash and pikachu),i think its going to stay a piplupGarrison12795 12:31, 1 March 2008 (UTC)

Also level = not anime. Otherwise jeez, Ash either Rare Candied Charmeleon a lot or just didn't bother training Charmander. TTEchidna 08:26, 17 April 2008 (UTC)

Yeah Level/evolving seems to have very little standing in the show, I mean Ash's Charmander knew flamethrower when he caught it. - unsigned comment from Cahillbro (talkcontribs)

though i kinda want it to evolve. Its amazingly cute, but an Empoleon or at least a Prinplup could do wonders for her. Maybe she'll catch a Chikorita for GSDS. i wish... but dont count on it.

That's what most thought on Torchic during Adv. But it evolve anyways. And level did exist in the anime but is now neglected. Remember back in the first season, someone mentioned Pikachu as around lvl.25 after Ash said he was traveling for just two months, forgot the episode title sorry.


its obvious its torrent but idk how to edit that Happizelpom 05:33, 4 November 2008 (UTC)

That was never shown. -Billy4b2004 12:10, 14 December 2008 (UTC)


im not doubting it but what were the exact words that referred it to being male? Happizelpom 04:00, 20 January 2009 (UTC)

Yea,I've watched all the dub episodes to,and I don't remember any "he" words when refering to Piplup,only "it". Lovely Rose 18:52, 27 January 2009 (UTC)
Woah, woah, woah. Proof please. I have barely watched the dub (I did want to see how much they cut in the recent ghost episode) but this seems out of character, especially when almost all the evidence points towards female. Aura-Knight 23:58, 3 February 2009 (UTC) Note: On checking the history, there apparently is a small reference in DP011. I'm not going to dispute this but the dub's probably making a mistake....
Almost all evidence pointing toward Piplup being female? The only evidence pointing toward Piplup being female is that cheerleader outfit from DP061, and that's highly debatable since Pachirisu also wore one and its head stripe is heavy evidence pointing toward it being male. The fact that it's voiced by females means nothing--Madame Muchmoney's Snubbull is a confirmed female yet in the dub was voiced by a male in that evolution state, while Ash's Totodile is heavily pointed toward being male yet is voiced by females.
There's actually more evidence that points toward Piplup being male--there's the embarrasment in that maid outfit from DP062 and Dawn interpreting Piplup's speech using a masculine pronoun in the Japanese version of DP087. ****, if it weren't for Yellow and Anabel, that interpretation of Piplup's speech would probably have been taken as rock-solid evidence that Piplup is male.
Of course, there isn't enough evidence either way pointing toward a specific gender in Piplup's case. And if there isn't 100% confirmation, it doesn't matter how much evidence points toward one way--it's entirely possible that all the evidence points one direction yet it eventually gets confirmed the other way. --Shiningpikablu252 00:13, 4 February 2009 (UTC)


DP121's sure made our lives difficult.

Could be another EP091 ploy, but who knows at this point. Personally, I'd say let's not take risks with a title as blatant as that. TTEchidna 19:58, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Since Piplup is on the Movie 12 Poster, and Chimchar and Staravia are not, I don't think it's likely that Piplup will be evolving any time in the next few months. So I'm going to guess it's a ploy. However, I agree that it's wise not to take risks, or to allow anyone to edit the page because "they're sure Piplup will evolve" or anything like that.--Purimpopoie 20:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Could be someone else's Staraptor/Monferno/Piplup on the movie poster.. then again, this also applies to the episodes said Pokémon 'evolve' in. Tina 20:11, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Given the fact that the anime likes to screw with us, I'd bet on someone else's Piplup evolving. Besides, Prinpulp isn't on the poster, therefore it can't evolve. (Is it someone else's? Doubt it highly!) Aura-Knight 22:10, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
I sure hope this new episode announcement does result in Dawn's Piplup evolving. Most of the fans believe that Piplup's evolution is long overdue, and I highly doubt they'd have even suggested Piplup might evolve if Kenji-girl's whole "Piplup's a second mascot" bull**** were accurate...--Shiningpikablu252 22:45, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Purimpopie is right.....PIPLUP IS NOT GOING TO EVOLVE? When ever they put it in the title this specific, it even hints that it's not gonna's like Ash's Pikachu....there might be more episodes about it trying to evolve....but it's NEVER GOING TO EVOLVE!!!--Tavisource 23:05, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
There's always a possibility that it could evolve, despite all the clues pointing to it not evolving. But I just hope this isn't the same as Pikachu (with it facing its evolution and refusing to evolve) because then everyone will use this as evidence for PearlShipping or something >> ~ overgrownsol 23:08, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
It's pretty obvious it's not evolving. The 12th movie confirms this. I'm sure this episode will air before it, right? Just another stupid rumor.
Shiningpikablu... you're so funny. You don't think Piplup is the second mascot, yet you believed that Dawn's Pachirisu was going to die... Piplup's never evolving. You just can't handle someone else being a mascot besides Pikachu and Meowth. As we've seen, the DP series has broken more barriers than the previous generations. Someone other than Ash fights an Elite Four member, a trade went on between two main characters, and Ash gained a Pokémon that previously belonged to his rival. Why is Piplup being another mascot so unbelievable compared to all of this? Get over it. --ケンジガール 23:12, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
We pretty much knew Pikachu wasn't going to be evolving in DP074 because it had refused to evolve when given a chance way back in EP013. Piplup, on the other hand, has never been stated as not wanting to evolve. Sure, we've had cryptic titles before, but I've placed my chips on this outcome: Piplup evolves. --Shiningpikablu252 23:14, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Piplup IS a mascot...all over official Pokémon sites...they list Piplup along with Ash, Brock, Dawn, and Pikachu....they are ALL on the SAME list....!!!--Tavisource 23:15, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
Okay, but it's a lost bet. Movie confirms it's not evolving. I doubt the writers would have Piplup evolve now when it's going to be a Piplup 4 months from now. --ケンジガール 23:18, 9 March 2009 (UTC)
I'm sure that it won't evolve, judging from the official Pokémon movie site/posters. Besides, DP074's Japanese title also confused us about Pikachu's evolution, despite being the mascot.. And, it's not EP013, it's EP014. Ҝəυzø8 10:08, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
How do we know it isn't some CoTD or other character's Piplup? YinYang 20:44, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
I think Tyler will appear again. 20:54, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
But Pippy has a Tiara.--Tavisource 21:45, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
Seriously guys, it can't evolve. Piplup is on the poster, and it's a 99.9999999999999% chance it is Dawn's. It won't evolve. On another note, as it says "This time for Piplup", we can probably expect a certain Monferno by this time. Aura-Knight 21:49, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
Movie posters can be edited. Didn't they do that once? I think Treecko was on some movie poster, then it evolved before the movie, so they updated it with Grovyle. Is that so impossible with Piplup? Now, I'm not saying Piplup will evolve here, I'm only saying it's not out of the question! I'm Missingno. Master. See my new and improved user page, and comment on it! 22:15, 10 March 2009 (UTC)
Do they also edit movie trailers? Piplup was also shown in the trailers. Ҝəυzø8 11:50, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
One of the following I think will happen: 1. Piplup tries to evolve, but fails. 2. The fact that Piplup hasn't evolved yet is brought up as the main debate of the episode and is never spoken of again. 3. Piplup begins evolving, but it stops itself because its a whiny spoilsport and, like Pikachu, doesn't want to change (which means itll never evolve, much to the dismay of many viewers and me). 4. Similar to the events of Bye Bye Psyduck, everyone thinks that Piplup has evolved, but it either gets replaced accidentally by a Prinplup or Piplup pulls some prank on them. 5. Piplup evolves in a dream. Dawn wakes up to find that unfortunately her new Prinplup still a Piplup. 6. The film Arceus takes place before its evolution, which would cause much confusion. 7. All promotional images and posters of the film are incorrect and need to be redone. This however, isn't a problem. They've made several mistakes like this before. I really hope it is No. 7, because Piplup needs to evolve and fast... I don't want Piplup to be a permanant. It hasn't got an excuse... it'll evolve someday. Pikachu has an excuse not to, as it needs a Thunder Stone, but Piplup? He evolves naturally. --Dusknoir477 12:34, 11 March 2009 (UTC)
