On Prinplup's head is a yellow crown that lies above the eyes. Prinplup's torso is a light blue with four white spots, two on each side. The feet of Prinplup are more webbed than Piplup's and are yellow. It's fins are tipped with light blue. It also has a dark blue tail in the shape of a fin.

Special Abilities

Evolution

Prinplup is the evolved form of Piplup as of level 16. It evolves into Empoleon at level 36.
