Ambipom (Japanese: エテボース Etebousu) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation IV. It is the evolved form of Aipom.

## Naming

Its name is a cross between ambidextrous, meaning to have equal proficiency in both the left and right hand, and what could be the second word is palm.

The same reason can be of its pre-evolution, Aipom, but with "bi" meaning two, because it has two tail-hands as oppose to one.

Its Japanese name comprises te (手), meaning hand, and the transliteration of both implies that it is two handed.

## Biological characteristics

Ambipom is a much larger and advanced form of Aipom. It has two tails, each with a large, rounded hand with three red-tipped fingers. These tails are much more versatile than Aipom's tail, and the tails also have a cuff of a rounded frill on the wrists. Ambipom also has a similar frill on its butt. Unlike Aipom, Ambipom's feet are purple, not tan, and the insides of its ears are red. Ambipom has an arrangement of a split hair sticking out from the top of its head, replacing Aipom's spiky tuft. Ambipom has a purple, triangular nose that is much more visible than Aipom's, and much wider eyes.

## Anime

Dawn is trapped in the Solaceon Ruins surrounded by Unown, which was angered by the work of Team Galactic. When Dawn is in trouble, Aipom attempted to help her, but to no avail. Then Aipom started to evolve into an Ambipom and saved Dawn from the Unown.

Dawn uses Ambipom's Swift in contest by surrounding it with stars on the first round for the first time, but failed to enter the second round as Ambipom is completely hidden in the cluster of stars.

Dawn uses Ambipom also for the game of Pokémon Ping Pong. In the game, Ambipom shows excellent skills by hitting the ball again and again, and making it to fire up by the ignited launch. Due to this talent, the O, the master of the game took her for training.

## Evolution

Ambipom Raise Aipom to level 32, then teach it Double Hit or level up Aipom while it knows Double Hit.
