Primarina (Japanese: アシレーヌ Ashirene) is a dual-type Water/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Generation VII.

It evolves from Brionne starting at level 34. It is the final form of Popplio.

Biology

Primarina is a marine Pokémon that resembles a cross between a sea lion and a mermaid. Most of its body is white, but it has a long, fish-like tail. It has a long snout with round, pink nose, bright blue eyes with long white eyelashes, and long light blue hair trailing off the back of its head. A tiara-like structure rests on its forehead, consisting of a line of pearls with a pink sea star at one corner and a thin, transparent blue fin extending back over its hair. Its hair is contained to a ponytail by two strings of pearls. There are three fins similar to the one on its crown on its body: one that drapes around its shoulders and chest, one around its waist where the fishtail begins, and one near the tip of its tail. It has long front fins with three digits. Primarina's long fish-like tail is bright blue with small pointed, pink fins around its hips. Its tail fins are white, and it is capable of using them as feet to stand up.

Primarina uses water balloons and its voice as its main weapons. Water balloons are released as it dances, and are controlled by its voice. In the moonlight, the balloons glitter and create a beautiful scene. However, some of the balloons are explosive and triggered by touch. This Pokémon uses the non-explosive balloons as platforms to tease opponents.[1] Because its voice is instrumental in its battle strategy, its care should be a priority for Trainers. The melody it uses has been passed down for generations.

Primarina is the only known Pokémon capable of learning the move Sparkling Aria, and the exclusive Z-Move Oceanic Operetta.

Trivia
