'''Troppy''' (Japanese: '''どらら''' ''Tororo''), known as '''Pilo''' in [[Chuang Yi]]'s translations, is one of the [[{{OBP|Pokémon]]|species}} that {{adv|Sapphire}} owns in the [[Pokémon Adventures]] {{pkmn|manga}}.

Prior to the start of her {{pkmn|journey}}, Sapphire received Troppy from her father, [[Professor Birch]], as a means for aerial travel. Troppy first appeared in the end of ''[[PS213|Bubble Bubble Toil and Azumarill II]]'', as a way to quickly get up [[Mt. Chimney]] in order to chase [[Team Aqua]]. Upon reaching the top of the mountain, Sapphire spots Team Aqua's machine and has Troppy attack with Razor Leaf to scatter the Team Aqua Grunts below. Before they can attack the machine itself though [[Aqua Admin Amber|Amber]] interferes with his {{p|Pelipper}}'s {{m|Hydro Pump}}. As Troppy and Pelipper battle in the sky, [[Shelly]] urges [[Professor Cozmo]] to set up the meteorite inside the machine as fast as possible. [[Flannery]] tells Sapphire to get past Amber and go for the machine, but Sapphire says she can't as Amber is feinting, pretending to fight badly and staying defensive, only attacking when they head for the machine in order to keep them at a distance. Unable to get in close range, Sapphire orders Troppy to use Magical Leaf, an attack that never misses. Unfortunately, it hits the machine just after Cozmo finishes setting up the meteorite, so the machine's defenses block the attack.
In ''[[PS216|Mixing It Up with Magcargo]]'', Troppy is used in another battle against Team Aqua. Sapphire has Troppy and [[Chic]] launch a barrage of attacks that continue to get countered, no matter how hard they try. Sapphire, suddenly realizing something, has Troppy and Chic hold their fire. Approaching the "enemy," Sapphire discovers that a ring of {{m|Mirror Coat}} has been set up around them, reflecting all their attacks back upon themselves, and that Team Aqua had left long ago.
In ''[[PS231|Master Class with Masquerain]]'', Troppy, alongside [[Rono]] and {{p|Donphan|Phando}}, were used in Sapphire's battle against [[Winona]] and her {{p|Masquerain}}, {{p|Swablu}}, and {{p|Beautifly}}. Although Winona's Pokémon proved tough, Sapphire manages to defeat her, earning the {{badge|Feather Badge}}.
In ''[[PS248|The Beginning of the End with Kyogre & Groudon X]]'', Troppy, alongside {{adv|Ruby}} and Sapphire's other Pokémon, areis used to battle against [[Archie]] and [[Maxie]]. Troppy was seen being pushed back by Archie's {{p|Walrein}}'s {{m|Icy Wind}}.
In ''[[PS259|Rayquaza Redemption II]]'', Troppy flies {{adv|Ruby}} into the final battle against [[Super-ancient Pokémon|Groudon and Kyogre]]. In ''[[PS267|It All Ends Now VIII]]'', Sapphire uses Troppy in her final battle against [[Archie]] and [[Maxie]].
==={{chap|Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire}}===
In [[PAORAS13]], Troppy is used to chase after [[Zinnia]] after she goes to stop the rocket the scientists launched. After catching up, Troppy attacks with Leaf Tornado. Once landing on the rocket, he and Sapphire are attacked by Zinnia's {{p|Salamence}}, knocking them off and sending them into the ocean.
==Personality and characteristics==
Much unlike his Trainer, Troppy is a calm and collected Pokémon. He is Sapphire's main means of aerial transportation. Though powerful, Sapphire rarely uses him for battle, preferring [[Rono]] and [[Chic]] over him.
