Lillipup (ヨーテリー) is the 12th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Normal Type, and it is known as the Puppy Pokémon.

Lillipup can have one of two Abilities: Vital Spirit, which prevents it from falling asleep, even if it uses Rest or gets hit with Spore; or Pickup, which has a 10% chance of collecting an item after battle, which it holds. Pickup can also pick up an item that an opponent or ally used during a battle. Lillipup's Hidden Ability is the Run Away, which allows it to flee a battle against a Wild Pokémon, unless the Wild Pokémon is using a trapping move or Ability.

Lillipup gains the opportunity to evolve into Herdier starting at Level 16, and can evolve a second time into Stoutland starting at Level 32.

Lillipup is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 3,840 Steps to hatch. It takes Lillipup 1,059,860 Experience Points to reach Level 100.




Lillipup is a small dog-like Pokémon that strongly resembles a terrier. It has a distinct black patch of fur that runs down its back.
