This Empoleon is a Water/Steel-type Pokémon owned by Kenny. It first appeared as a Prinplup.


During its time as a Prinplup, it helped Kenny win his second and third ribbon. It also has a fierce rivalry with Dawn's Piplup. Prior to the Grand Festival, it evolved into an Empoleon. At the Grand Festival, it performed in the first round with Floatzel but Kenny didn't make it into the next round because his performance failed. While in Sunyshore City, Kenny and Empoleon trained with the Olivine Gym Leader Jasmine and defeated Ash in a Pokémon Battle. Empoleon is currently with Kenny.
