Prinplup is a blue Pokémon that looks like a penguin. It is predominantly dark blue, with light blue patterns on the face, wing tips, and lower body. It has blue eyes and a short yellow beak with a little point above it. Two enormous golden ridges run from its beak to the back of its head, meeting just above the nape of its neck. It has four huge white markings on its body that resemble buttons. It possesses long, robust, flipper-like wings instead of arms that may knock down and break trees. It has short legs and three bright toes.

Prinplup is very self-confident, which inhibits it from establishing groups of its own kind. This Pokémon may be spotted hunting for prey in chilly waters. In the chilly waters, Prinplup can swim elegantly. The sound of its singing voice has been likened to a raging flood.
