Popplio has been getting the least amount of love so far. We’re not sure if it’s because of the clown nose or the fact that he hasn’t proved to be very exciting just yet. It doesn’t help that the other new starters are a fireball-spitting cat and an owl with a bow-tie. But, if previous Pokemon games are any indicator, Popplio will definitely come into his own eventually.
Popplio is a sea lion, so naturally he’s a water-type Pokemon who happens to be able to swim at an impressive speed (25 mph according to its official description). That’s all well and good for those who find themselves in the water while exploring the brand new region of Alola. Still, it’s pretty impressive for such a tiny, and oddly adorable, Pokemon.
As far as evolutions and attacks go, not much has been revealed concerning Popplio. We do know that Popplio will use a Water Gun attack that will fire bubbles from its nose.
