Liepard (Japanese: レパルダス Lepardas) is a Dark-type Pokémon introduced in Generation V.

It evolves from Purrloin starting at level 20.

Contents

Biology

Liepard is a slender, purple feline Pokémon speckled with yellow rosettes. Its fur patterning is considered attractive to many Trainers. It has a pink "mask" marking over its eyes, a pink nose, and small yellow markings over its green eyes. It has two pairs of long yellow whiskers, and a tufted yellow underside. Its lower legs are yellow, and each small paw has a pale pink pad that can be seen in Pokédex 3D Pro. It has a long, curving tail with a sickle-like shape toward the tip.

Liepard has well-developed muscles that allows it to run silently and strike opponents from behind. It has also been known to vanish and reappear without warning. It is known to be rather moody and vicious. In Galar, it competes with Thievul for territory.

Trivia

  • Liepard is the only Pokémon with a base stat total of 446.

Origin

Liepard has traits of housecats and leopards. It could also draw inspiration from spotted wildcats like the leopard cat, ocelot, and serval. It may also be based on a Savannah cat, a hybrid between a domestic cat and a serval. It also slightly resembles a black panther, because of its dark coloration and the fact that spots on a panther's coat can be seen if examined closely.

Name origin

Liepard is a combination of lie and leopard.

Lepardas is a combination of leopard and πάρδος párdos (Greek for leopard).
