Piplup, the cutest of the three starters, is growing up, and headed into the awkwardness of puberty. A crown-like protrusion grows from his beak, suggesting noble aspirations, and his stats improve, but many of Prinplup's moves are still weak. One possible exception is Brine, a reasonably powerful Water attack that doubles in power if the user's hit points are low. Combined with Prinplup's natural Torrent ability, this move can be devastating in a pinch. Strangely, when Piplup evolves into Prinplup, he learns Metal Claw. Perhaps this otherwise out-of-place move hints of things to come?
Evolves to Empoleon at Level 36.
