(Japanese: ポッチャマはぐれる！ Pochama Goes Astray!) is the 164th episode of the Diamond & Pearl series, and the 630th episode of the Pokémon anime. It first aired in Japan on February 18, 2010.
Since Ash captured his Gible, Piplup has always been on the receiving end of the Land Shark Pokémon's failed attempts to master Draco Meteor... and the Penguin Pokémon has finally had enough! However when it seems that Dawn prefers Gible over him, Piplup is heartbroken and decides to run away and head back to Sandgem Town to return to Professor Rowan. However, things go wrong when Piplup accidentally runs into a disguised Team Rocket, while the group find themselves under attack from an angry Rhyperior.
