Biography

As a Piplup[]

Empoleon as a Piplup

Piplup was in his Poké Ball inside Professor Rowan's suitcase when Professor Rowan and Dawn / Lucas visited Lake Verity. After they left the briefcase behind and it was found by Barry and the Player, the two were attacked by two wild Starly. In panic, Barry took Piplup's Poké Ball while the Player took Chimchar's and used him to fight off one of the Starly.

Later, Barry travelled to Sandgem Town, where Professor Rowan allowed him to keep Piplup, and the two left to start a journey across Sinnoh.

Leaving Jubilife City, on Route 203, Barry used Piplup to battle the Player, which he lost. Sometime after this, Piplup evolved into a Prinplup.
