Pelipper (Japanese: ペリッパー Pelipper) is a dual-type Water/Flying Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Wingull starting at level 25.

Biology

Pelipper is a pelican-like Pokémon whose head and bill make up the majority of its body. It has white feathers with a short, blue crest on top of its head. There are three blue digits on each of its wide wings, and it has blue feet with three webbed digits. Each eye is made of two black semicircles with a horizontal white line between them. Its large yellow bill appears to extend along its underside.

Inside Pelipper's bill is a throat pouch that it uses to carry Eggs and small Pokémon such as its own young and Pyukumuku, and is large enough to fit a small child in. Due to this, Pelipper is often compared to a courier or a messenger. Skimming across the top of waves, it scoops food from the sea and swallows it in one gulp. It can swallow up to 30 Wishiwashi in one go, and loves to eat abandoned Luvdisc that are too despondent to be wary near the sea surface. It builds its nest on steep cliffs facing the sea. Young male Pelipper are in charge of gathering food and bringing it back to others at its nest. Pelipper rests its wings while floating in the ocean.

Trivia

Icon for Pelipper Couriers
  • Pelipper shares its category with Ducklett. They are both known as the Water Bird Pokémon.
  • The company Pelipper Couriers is named after Pelipper, and its logo depicts a stylized Pelipper.
  • Pelipper is tied with Gyarados as the most common Pokémon found amongst Gym Leaders, being used by seven of them.

Origin

Pelipper seems to be based on a pelican, which are known for their large beaks and throat pouches used to scoop up prey. It also resembles a small fishing vessel due to its body shape and its habit of floating on ocean waves and transporting small Pokémon in its beak. Its curved beak resembles the boat hull, its head resembles the deckhouse, and its eyes resemble doors with windows.

Name origin

Pelipper may be a combination of pelican and skipper (boat captain), flipper, or possibly propeller (device used for propulsion by both boats and planes).
