    I personally think that Piplup is nowhere near as popular as the writers want us to believe. Of course, if you MAKE a Pokemon seem like it's popular by viciously shoving it down everyone's throats, people are going to think it's popular even though they don't like it. I mean, I like Piplup and everything, but I don't think it's as popular as the anime portrays it to be. If anything, at least in the US, its evolutions are more popular than Piplup.

    But at least I think I've finally found a valid reason for Piplup to be out of the Pokeball so much (besides the mascot thing), so I'm okay with that. For now.

    No one said they had to fight each other. I really don't think the writers are dumb enough to pull a Gliscor vs Glisor match...at least I hope not. They seem to have a thing for Pokemon vs its Evolution battles though, which is just as bad (if not worse) as same Pokemon battles.

    You may lose your faith in us, but never in yourselves. From here, the fight will be your own.

    lol that's right. I don't like Piplup (don't hit me...) but we can guess the pokemon franchise wanted to make more money with a 2nd "mascot". That's vicious to make us think that piplus is popular ...

    Gliscor / gliscor is almost sure, since paul's gliscor kicked ash's gligar a** last time, AND maybe staraptor vs staraptor (ash's and jun's). Well, i won't complain if the staraptors battle. It would always be better than a pikachu/bellsprout

    Only those in Japan can say for certain whether or not it's popular.

    No matter how popular Piplup is in Japan, what I know is that many people in this forum don't like Piplup. (including me) I want it to evolve and get rid of its hateful personality so badly!

    The funny thing is Piplup was very popular outside of Japan, when it first debut and seemed to be the most popular choice for people playing Diamond/Pearl.

    Over time though, it does seem that people outside of Japan have grown less interested in Piplup, likely because of the screen time it has on the anime.

    The other thing was for a time, it seemed like Munchlax was being made as Pokémon's second mascot, but when May left the show, it hurt Munchlax's chances.

    I liked Piplup at the very start of DP because it had a good personality and stayed inside its ball. Somewhere around DP30 or so the writers decided to put it in every damn episode and use it in most of Dawn's battles, and worse than that it takes valuable screentime away from Dawn's other Pokemon which are interesting.

    To be honest I'm not one of those Piplup haters but I've grown more and more indifferent to it and I can't say I'd miss it after Dawn leaves.

    After all, I'd rather Piplup stay out of its ball than Togepi. At least Piplup is a Pokemon and not some dull item that sat in a trainers arms in every episode. God forbid the writers ever do anything like that again, they've avoided it with Happiny too.

    WELL SAID!! I'm getting fed up with it's rebel and selfish attitude. I'd like it to evolve, and to STOP using bubble beam!! (enough is enough)

    Or... maybe i don't want it to evolve but just stay quiet in its ball. (that's because i find piplup's evolutions sooooo ugly, especially empoleon, although he was my top pokemon in the video game)

    Default Evos

    Not many people here are mentioning Brock's Pokemon, so far his Croagunk has had a rivalry with Saturn's Toxicroak, their first battle was a ti, there last one Croagunk was defeated, since the TG story isnt finished yet its likely they'll battle again, take into account that Saturn's Toxicroak is also a different colour hinting that if Croagunk does evolve to defeat it, they'll be easily told apart.

    Well that's what I think, Happiny will evolve no doubt but he'll give it away

    Ash will definitely get Monferno and Staraptor, Buizel won't evolve, they evolved Kingler so his other water types wouldnt evolve, sounds stupid but thats how it looks, Gliscor is pretty cool and so is Grotle, I can't wait to see what happens later on in the series

    However the whole discussion involving Ash getting a Riolu, however unlikely it is he gets a 7th Pokemon now (excluding Aipom), you have to take into consideration that his rival Paul has 7 Pokemon that he keeps changing around and there's already similarities and links between their partys so you never know!

    The other possible trainer for Riolu I think would be dawn as she needs a sixth, besides I think that whole thing to do with her battling Maylene was to see if her and Lucario fitted together, beside they do both have the same colour hair

    I also think James' Mime Jnr will evolve and it and Delia's Mr Mime will fall in love and run off together, he should get Growlithe on his team, earlier on I didnt think this was happened as Growlithe are associated with Officer jenny (the opposite to TR) but recently Officer Jennys have been using Stunkys and other Pokemon so Growlithe coming back is more likely to happen

    But I like to be surprised :)

    Blegh at the Mime.Jr idea. I'm sorry, but having it evolve will totally ruin its appeal. It'd just be ugly, not cute. Not to mention that it would just feel wrong to have it pop up in the motto as Mr.Mime next to Wobuffet.

    Not to mention that it dies for at least 5-10 episodes before making its comeback to repeat the cycle.

    Now Growlith would be an interesting addition to the team, seeing as they never officialy had a fire type.


    Boss Fantasy or Boss Porn, that is the question.

    Default Evos again

    Yeah it would be a dumb idea but at the same time the writers are gonna keep doing that episode where a characters pokemon falls in love and they release them,

    I would like to see what they would do with it if it did evolve into Mr Mime, i mean if its female would they call it Mrs Mime?

    It's not a different color. If it was it would've looked different in the dex. That's just what they look like in the anime.

    PUSA would probably do a joke that. But that's what NoA gets for assuming pokemon would always be genderless.

    While i realize the Japanese name Barriered isn't gender specific, I'd give the writers enough credit that they wouldn't be completely oblivious to the dub name. I really doubt they would ever introduce a Mr. Mime that is like in love with another Mr. Mime, simply because that would be very weird in the dub.

    It's only because the first Toxicroak they saw is that Toxicroak, so the dex have its image. It's the same for the games so I think it could be the same for the anime.

    A Toxicroak of the exact same colour appeared in the Pokemon Collection episode in a still frame shot (the dub version of that episode will be showing this Saturday).
