With the release of Pokemon GO’s fifth-anniversary collection challenge, players will need to find and catch each of the starter Pokemon currently available in the game so far. That means players will need to get their hands on the water-loving penguin, Piplup. While trying to simply hunt one down will eventually net you one, you may be wondering how to get Piplup in Pokemon GO fast.
Finding and Catching Piplup in Pokemon GO
The best way to get Piplup is to use an incense and then head to a PokeStop and activate a Lure on it.
Both of these items increase the number of Pokemon in your surrounding area, and Piplup in particular has a high chance of spawning when these are active.
If you don’t have any Incense or Lures that you can use to help you catch Piplup, you’ll instead want to head to bodies of water such as water parks, rivers and lakes. Why? Well, Piplup is a water-type Pokemon, so it makes sense it’d find a home in a watery area like these.
Once you’ve got a Piplup you can evolve it into Prinplup with 25 Candy. You can then evolve your Prinplup into Emporeum with 100 Candy, but remember you need these Pokemon’s specific candy, so you’ll need to catch more Piplups or walk with this Pokemon as your best friend.
That’s everything you need to know on how to get Piplup in Pokemon GO. If you’re looking for more tips and tricks for your AR Pokemon quest to be the best, head over to our wiki, search for Twinfinite, or see more of our coverage on the game below.
