...And the winner of Cutest New Pokémon goes to...Piplup! Piplup’s evolutions won’t be winning any beauty contests, though, folks, so enjoy it while it lasts.

While Piplup’s adorable roundness make it a fan favorite, its attacks are the weakest of the three starters. Its only Water-type attack before it evolves is the miserable Bubble, and, as usual, Water Pokémon aren’t in particularly short supply. Even only armed with Bubbles, though, its high Special Attack stats allow it to make short work of the first gym’s Rock-type Pokémon.

Evolves to Prinplup at Level 16.
