Pokémon Wiki

Brionne (オシャマリ, Oshamari) is a Water-type Pokémon introduced in Sun and Moon. It is the first evolved form of Popplio. It evolves into Primarina.



Brionne is a light blue sea lion-like Pokémon. It has three frill-like growths around its body that resembles a ballerina tutu. It starts under the front flippers and stops at its tail. It alternative white and pale blue. Its long ears are comprised of three sections that lighten and increased in size towards the tip; the primary portion is ovoid, while the last two are circular. It has a long conical shaped nose with a round pink nose and large eyes with pink pupils. Its front flippers are longer than its tail and they both have white tips. It has three black digits on the front flippers.


Brionne usually learns its dance moves from other colony members or even humans, and will pay all its effort practicing its skills until it can memorize them. It uses them in battle to disarray the opponent before attacking it. Sometimes, in nights with the moon high up in the sky, you can see a lot of Brionne dancing together under the shining moonlight.

Also, Brionne mostly smiles and won't show a sad face to others unless it trusts its Trainer and Pokémon friends.

Natural abilities

Bionne can create balloons while dancing. In battles, it usually distracts its opponents with its dance and using its water balloons to attack them.


Brionne is the evolved form of Popplio as of level 17. It evolves into Primarina at level 34.

Lana's Brionne.

Brionne first appeared in Balloons, Brionne, and Belligerence! under the ownership of Ida. It evolved into a Primarina offscreen prior to Evolving Research!.

Lana's Brionne debuted in Evolving Research!, where it evolved from her Popplio. She later evolves into a Primarina in The One That Didn't Get Away!.


  • Brionne is tied with Frogadier and Raboot as the shortest mid-evolution starter Pokémon.


Brionne is based on a circus performing sea lion and possibly a ballerina, with folds around its body that resemble a tutu. It also resembles a clown, with its round nose.


Brionne comes from brio, brine, lion (referring to a sea lion) and ondone (a type of sea nymph).

Its Japanese name, Oshamari, is a portmanteau of ocean, オシャレ (oshare, "fashionable"), and marine.
