Popplio (Japanese: アシマリ Ashimari) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves into Brionne starting at level 17, which evolves into Primarina starting at level 34.

Along with Rowlet and Litten, Popplio is one of three starter Pokémon of Alola available at the beginning of Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon.

Along with Rowlet and Litten, it was the second Generation VII Pokémon to be revealed to the public on May 10, 2016.

Biology

Popplio is a pinniped Pokémon that is primarily blue. It has large eyes, a long, white snout with black whiskers, and round, pink nose. There is a small, rounded earflap on each side of its head. Around its neck is a light blue ruff, which extends past its shoulders. It has four flippers. The front flippers are larger than the hind, and have white markings separating its toes.

Popplio is able to snort bubbles of water from its nose, which it uses as part of its battle strategy. On land, it uses the elasticity of its bubbles to perform acrobatic stunts and jumps. It practices daily with increasingly larger water bubbles. It can swim at 25 mph (40 km/h)[1]
