Bibarel (ビーダル) is the 14th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Normal/Water Type, and it is known as the Beaver Pokémon.

All three of Bibarel's Abilities are related to either the Statistics of itself or its opponents. The Simple Ability doubles the effectiveness of its own Statistic modifications, while the Unaware Ability completely ignores the Statistic changes of its opponent. Bibarel's Hidden Ability Ability is the Moody Ability, which will increase one random Statistic by two stages while reducing another Statistic by one stage. Statistics affected by the Moody Ability include Accuracy and Evasion.

Bidoof can evolve into Bibarel at Level 15.

Bibarel is in the Egg Groups Water 1 and Field, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Bibarel One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Bibarel finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It does have some options available to it depending on its Ability: with Simple it could use a set based on boosting its own Statistics, or with Unaware it could ignore the Statistic Boosts and potentially stop the sweep in its tracks. Either way, its biggest problem is mediocre (at best) statistics--faster Pokémon that hit harder than it will beat it easily.
