Piplup (Pokémon)

5 bytes added, 30 March
Piplup has a strong sense of self-pride. Because of its pride, it has a hard time accepting food from humans and bonding with its caretakers. It will even puff out its chest after it falls down, which it often does due to its poor walking abilities. However, it is a skilled swimmer that can dive for over ten minutes in order to hunt. It has also been shown to fly short distances in the anime. It lives along the seashore in colder climates.
==In the anime==
A Piplup appeared in [[DPS01]], under the ownership of Professor Rowan, who was presenting it to [[Shinko]] as one of the starter Pokémon for her to pick. It fought with Rowan's {{p|Chimchar}} after it stole its food; this led to a window breaking and Piplup and Chimchar escaping. They were then captured by an {{p|Ariados}}'s web before being rescued by Shinko and {{an|Dawn}}.
A Piplup appeared in ''[[M20|I Choose You!]]'', under the ownership of [[Verity]]. It wasis her main Pokémon.
A Piplup appeared in [[SS008]], under the ownership of {{OBP|Misaki|SS008}}. It ran away from Sinnoh after becoming jealous of Misaki's new {{p|Croagunk}}, but it was returned to her by {{Ash}} and {{an|Go}} after they found it in [[Vermilion City]]. Piplup then entered itself and Croagunk into the [[Pokémon Drift Ice Race]], but the two partnered up to save Misaki after {{TRT}} interrupted the race.
