There are only opinions to this question, not facts. So MY opinion is that Piplup is, because Empoleon turns out to be quite strong. It has many, many types that are weak to it and nothing that is EXTREMELY harmful to it. Go to for more info. On the left hand side of the home page click pokedex under Diamond/Pearl and there will be a list of all the Pokemon in Sinnoh.


Actually they are all great, but I like Turtwig and Piplup more than Chimchar, considering almost every move that Chimchar learns is Fighting and Fire type. Which makes it bad, because my Infernape ended up having 2 Fighting type moves and 2 Fire type moves, but I cancelled 1 Fire type move out with Rock Climb, which is also quite strong, and it can confuse the opponent.

Turtwig is great at defending and attacking, but when it fights with a fast Pokemon, it'll be dead by then. But its extra Ground type when it evolves into Torterra will defeat Poison type Pokemon with just 1 Earthquake, which I like.

Piplup is great at defending, but its speed and attack are not that good. But its all quite balanced, though. The best attack it can learn is Brine! You can think that it is quite weird for me to like Brine, well, its because Brine will do double the damage when the opponent's HP has only half or less left. Brine's will normally do only 60 damage each time it hits, but if it gets doubled, it'll do 120 damage, cool!

Okay, enough with Brine, so that's all I have, pick your choice.

Oh if you want to choose Chimchar.

Chimchar has high speed and great attack, but its defense isn't that good. And you must really get another great Pokemon, because Chimchar really, learns a lot of Fighting and Fire moves, other than different types. So it isn't really great if you want to complete the game with just one Pokemon.
