Popplio is a blue-colored pinniped Pokémon. Large eyes, a long, white snout with black whiskers, and a round, pink nose characterize it. Each side of its skull has a tiny, rounded earflap. A bright blue ruff wraps over its neck and stretches beyond its shoulders. It has four flippers. The front flippers are bigger than the back flippers and contain white marks between the toes.

Popplio can snort water bubbles from its nose, which it exploits as part of its fighting tactics. On ground, it does acrobatic leaps and jumps using the flexibility of its bubbles. It trains every day with bigger and larger water bubbles. It can swim at a speed of 25 mph (40 km/h).
