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.

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.
  • Liepard shares its category with Galarian Articuno. They are both known as the Cruel Pokémon.

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 leopard, because of its dark coloration and the fact that it has spots which can be seen if examined closely. Its fur pattern around its eyes, behavior, and feline influence suggests that it may also be based on a female thief, commonly known as a cat burglar.

Name origin

Liepard is a combination of lie and leopard.

Lepardas is a combination of leopard and λεόπαρδος leopardós (old Greek for leopard) or leopardus (Latin for leopard).
