Primarina (アシレーヌ Ashireenu) is a Water/Fairy-type Pokémon introduced in Sun and Moon. It is the second and final evolved form of Popplio.
Primarina is a white siren-like Pokémon. it has pink stars and the sides of its head connected to white pearls and a light blue fin. It has long flowing blueish hair with white pearls in it resembling hair bands. It has a pink nose, and blue eyes with white eyelashes. On its chest, is a light blue fin wrapped around it. It also has a long blue tail with pink spikes, light blue fins, and a white fin at the very end.
Primarina, as the Pokédex says, sees every battle as a stage, so some people call it a songstress.
Primarina is the evolved form of Brionne as of level 34. It is also the final evolution of Popplio.
Primarina is only one of two fully evolved starter Pokémon to not have any legs. The other is Serperior.
Primarina's signature move Sparkling Aria heals the burns of the target it strikes. This is likely to counter Pokémon with the Guts Ability, who get a boost when inflicted with a status condition.
Similar to Sylveon, it has a gender ratio of seven males to one female even though its overall appearance is predominantly feminine.
Primarina is based on sea lions, mermaids and sirens/selkies (water maidens in European mythology that took on the form of seals), with elements of performers and opera singers. Its mostly male gender ratio may also be a reference to mermen (the male counterparts of mermaids).
Primarina comes from prima donna (an opera singer), marine and ballerina. It may also come from prima (the Spanish word for a female cousin).
