Hiyakkii
#022 Isshu / #516 National
Type:
Water
Species classification: High Water Pokemon
Ability: Gluttony – Eats held berry when 50% HP remains instead of 25%
Dream World ability: Torrent – increases power of Water-type moves by 1.5 if Pokemon has less than 1/3 HP remaining
Location found (Black/White): Evolve Hiyappu
Egg groups: Ground
Gender ratio: 87.5% male, 12.5% female
Experience at lvl 100: 1,000,000
Base stats: 75 HP / 98 Atk / 63 Def / 98 SAtk / 63 SDef / 101 Spd / 498 Total
Effort values: 2 Speed
Evolution family: From Hiyappu via Water Stone

Probably the least appealing design-wise in its final form, Hiyappu makes up for it by learning one of the coolest new moves of this generation at level 22, Water-type attack Boiling Water, which has a 30% chance of causing a burn on the target. Boiling Water is also available as TM55 though, so don't stress too much if you've evolved Baopputoo early, since his level up movepool isn't that great.
