Hareta's Empoleon (Japanese: ハレタのエンペルト Hareta's Emperte) is the first Pokémon owned by Hareta in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl Adventure!.

As a Piplup
As a Prinplup

Hareta first chose Piplup to battle an angry Onix which had Mitsumi. Since Hareta did not have a clue about Poké Balls, He attempted to open it by biting it. This resulted with Piplup stuck in Hareta's mouth which had angered it and refused to fight, telling Hareta that he should fight instead. The Onix, after it had seen this, calmed down. Later on, in Professor Rowan's lab, Piplup fled to the forest, only to find the same Onix enraged for an unknown reason. Hareta and a forest Pokémon fought against it, moving Piplup. Onix was eventually calmed down with Piplup's BubbleBeam.

During their stay at Jubilife City, Piplup was stolen by B-2 because it was a rare Pokémon. Once it was freed by Roark, Hareta had his very first battle, against the Gym Leader. After a Combination of Pound, Bide, and an Oran Berry, Hareta earned his first Gym Badge.

Piplup later on helped Hareta catch a Shinx during his stay at Floaroma Town. Where it also battled against Mars's Pokémon during the invasion the Power Plant.

After winning 5 badges, they had arrived to Celestic Town, where they meet B-2 again after setting a bomb in the Celestic Ruins. Piplup used his Brine send the bomb rising in the air, where it exploded.

During Hareta's Confrontation with Cyrus, Piplup defeated his Weavile before being sent floating in the water by his Gyarados. Piplup was used during the battle at the Canalave Gym, before being sent by Byron to train in Iron Island.

At Iron Island, Hareta decided that he was relying too heavily on Piplup, so he decided to train without it. At Lake Valor, Piplup defeated Saturn's Rhyperior twice and alluded Cyrus's Gyarados's attacks. Piplup was used later on the battle against Mitsumi. It, along with Regigigas, had defeated Mitsumi's Electivire and Dusknoir were the only two Pokémon to be standing after the battle.

After the battle, Cyrus had the building self-destruct, with Hareta and Mitsumi still in the building. They were saved by Jun's Dragonite. However, Piplup was feeling sick and Mitsumi explained that before Hareta left for his journey, she attached an Everstone to Piplup, hoping that Hareta will learn faster with weaker Pokémon. She removed the Everstone, and Piplup immediately evolved into Prinplup and then into Empoleon. Since then, it has participated during the Spear Pillar battle and the one at the Pokémon League.
