Empoleon (Japanese: エンペルト Enperuto) is the Water/Steel-type Starter Pokémon, evolved from Prinplup and Piplup. In the anime, an Empoleon is owned by Barry and Kenny.

Appearance

Empoleon appears to be a large navy blue penguin with orange webbed feet like ducks have. It also appears to have metal flippers with blue metal bordering it and three orange small claws underneath its flippers. It has a blue fin at the back along with a tail and a giant metal blue fin in the center of it starting from its chin. Empoleon also appears to have something looking like a tuxedo that it is wearing. It also mainly has a black body with a some white in the center of it along with black spots at the bottom of its white part of body. It also has two giant golden spots on the back of it along with a three horned trident crest making its beak.

Special abilities

Empoleon's ability in the game is Torrent, (along with all the other water starters) which increases the power of its Water-type attacks by 50% when its HP is at less than 1/3 of its maximum level of HP.

Although Empoleon is a Water/Steel-type Pokémon, it can learn a variety of Water, Ice, Steel and Flying attacks. It can also learn many moves involving claws, such as Metal Claw and Shadow Claw. It can learn Hydro Pump, a very powerful Water type move.

Evolution

Empoleon is the evolved form of Prinplup, as of level 36. Empoleon is also the final form of Piplup's evolutionary line.

Kai had an Empoleon that first appeared in The Rise of Darkrai on whom he used to battle Dawn's Piplup. Barry had an Empoleon that appeared in DP101: Barry's Busting Out All Over!. Kenny had an Empoleon that first appeared in DP174: Last Call, First Round!.

Trivia

  • Empoleon is the only Water-type, fully evolved Starter Pokémon that is not fully resistant to Fire-type moves, due to it being Steel-type as a secondary type.
  • It can be noted that Empoleon bears a resemblance to Daphnes Nohansen Hyrule, that in which both are kings in their own way and have crowns. That being said, both contain a symmetrical design on their bodies.
  • No other Pokemon has the same Water/Steel type combination.
