Peeko (Japanese: ピーコちゃん Peeko-chan) is a Wingull owned by Mr. Briney. She appears in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald versions as well as in Pokémon Adventures and in the anime episodes On a Wingull and a Prayer! and Sharpedo Attack!.

In the games

Peeko is kidnapped by a Team Magma grunt in Pokémon Ruby, or a Team Aqua grunt in Pokémon Sapphire and Emerald. In either case, the player must go to Rusturf Tunnel and defeat the grunt to rescue her. After she is rescued and returned to Mr. Briney, he will return to his cottage and later offer to sail the player to Dewford Town and Slateport City.

She is referred to by Mr. Briney as "darling", journeying the sea alongside him.

In the anime

In the anime, like in the games, Peeko was kidnapped by a Team Aqua grunt to persuade Mr. Briney to give him a boat to meet his partners. Ash and Co. tried to stop him and rescue Peeko. The grunt finally escaped but Peeko and Mr. Briney were reunited.

In the manga

Peeko in the fifth chapter

Like in other game-based adaptations, Peeko appears as a dainty Wingull that belongs to the old fisherman Briney. She found Ruby caught in the old man's fish nets, and Briney endears her greatly, calling her "Peeko-poo." However, an unfortunate fate would befall little Peeko when a wild Crawdaunt attacked their ship, and it ended up with a broken beak after charging straight into its armored exoskeleton. Ruby was able to heal this wound (and adorn it with his "brand" of fashionable make-up), though.

By the time of the FireRed & LeafGreen chapter, she makes her debut as an evolved Pokémon for the first time as a Pelipper. She is still shown hovering around her owner by the time of the next chapter.
