Anna received Piplup from Professor Rowan. She first appeared with her trainer during a showcase where Anna befriended Erika who was performing with her Raichu. Team Rocket's Jessie trapped Piplup and Erika's Raichu in a net and was planning on using them in her performance. But Erika and Anna rescued their Pokemon and sent Jessie blasting off with James & Meowth. Anna is set to appear in the last episode of Gabe's Kalos Pokemon Adventures season 2 and her Piplup will evolve in that episode.
Piplup is loyal to her trainer and cares for her deeply. She wants to impress her. She loves dressing up during showcases.
- Anna's Piplup was confirmed to be female in Piplup's Crush because she had a crush on Pik, Gabe's Pikachu.
