Lopunny (ミミロップ) is the 68th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Normal-Type, and it is known as the Rabbit Pokémon.

Lopunny can use one of two Abilities, the first being Cute Charm. Whenever hit with a move that requires physical contact, the opponent will have a 30% chance of becoming infatuated with the user, but only if the opponent is of the opposite gender. Lopunny can also use the Klutz Ability, which prevents hold items from affecting it unless those hold items affect experience. Its Hidden Ability is Limber, which prevents it from becoming afflicted with Paralysis.

Buneary can evolve into Lopunny by becoming loyal to its Trainer and then Leveling Up. Starting in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Lopunny can evolve into Mega Lopunny by using a Mega Stone.

Lopunny is in the Egg Groups Field and Human-Like, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Lopunny One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.




Lopunny resembles a rabbit that walks on two legs rather than four. It is composed of both short brown fur, and lighter tan fur. It has really big ears that are mostly made up of its thick, tan fur, and at the top there is some brown fur. There are also puffs of tan fur at the end of its arms, and the end of its feet are tan colored. It has a round, ball shaped tail made up of brown fur.

Gender Differences

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

In Generation VI, Lopunny finds itself in the PU tier of competitive battling. Lopunny's niche lies in a combination of its ability Klutz and Switcheroo, which can allow Lopunny to cripple opposing physical attackers with a Flame Orb. Lopunny is also very fast which allows for it to outspeed the majority of the tier. Unfortunately for Lopunny, it is outclassed by Stoutland and Purugly as an offensive Normal-type. Audino is a better defensive Normal-type due to a superior support movepool and better overall bulk, while Mr. Mime is a better Healing Wish user due to better offensive prowess. Lopunny's frailty makes it hard for it to switch into attackers, and its Speed, while good, is not able to outpace certain Pokémon like Raichu, Zebstrika, and Floatzel.
