Popplio

Popplio is a Water type Pokémon introduced in Generation 7. It is known as the Sea Lion Pokémon.

Popplio can create balloons made of water from its nose and utilize them to create a variety of different strategies and attacks in battle. This Pokémon is better at moving in the water than on land, and can swim at speeds over 25 mph. On land, it uses the elasticity of the balloons it creates to perform jumps and acrobatic stunts.

Popplio starts with the move Water Gun.
