Grab your flippers – let’s take a look at how to get Piplup in Pokemon Legends: Arceus!

First appearing in Pokemon Diamond and Pearl as one of the Starter Pokemon, cute little penguin Pocket Monster Piplup is a popular companion for Pokemon players, but he’s not all that common in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

However, we’ve managed to track down the Piplup’s location and other important information for you – so let’s go get ourselves one of these cute little critters!

Where To Find Piplup In Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

As mentioned, Piplup doesn’t crop up in many places across the game’s world.

In fact, you’ll only find Piplup in one specific area of Ancient Sinnoh.

If you head to the Cobalt Coastlands, you’ll find a lake near the Spring Path area – and that’s where you’ll be able to find yourself a Piplup.

That’s not all you’ll find near Spring Path, however – you’ll also be able to get hold of a slightly rarer evolved form of Piplup: Prinplup! Not far from there at Islespy Shore, you may also find the even rarer, fully evolved form of Piplup – Empoleon.

How to Evolve Piplup in Pokemon Legends: Arceus?

Thankfully, there’s no special or complicated method needed to evolve Piplup. To transform your Piplup into a Prinplup, you’ll just need to raise its level to 17.

In order to get your Prinplup ready to evolve, you’ll need to raise its level to 36 – and then you’ll have yourself an Empoleon.

Which brings us to the end of this guide – that’s all of the information you need to evolve your Piplup all the way up to a fearsome Empoleon!
