Ambipom, the Long Tail Pokémon. It uses its two tails to shell nuts, and then it links them together in a ring as a sign of friendship.
– Ash’s Pokedex


Ambipom still has that permanent mischievous grin on its face, but its eyes look less creepy than that of Aipom imo, or maybe it’s because it sorta has a nose. It has two tails (it evolved from Aipom by knowing Double Hit, appropriately). I cannot unsee how the hands on Ambipom’s tail look like udders X.x

In the anime, Ash’s Aipom (which followed him to Sinnoh from Hoenn) was traded to Dawn for her Buizel. Under her ownership, that Aipom evolved into Ambipom. Because it’s one of the main character’s Pokemon, we see it quite often. It competed with Dawn in many contests. However, one episode featured Pokemon Ping-Pong, and Ambipom proved to be very good at it. At the end of the episode, Ambipom decided that it liked Ping-Pong so much that it wanted to continue doing it, so it left Dawn and went with the Pokemon Ping-Pong guy to train.

Stat-wise, it’s quite fast and has good Attack. In the Battle Subway in White, I’ve encountered many Ambipom that use Fake-out, then U-turn, quite annoying to fight actually.
