I understand that Dawn dedicates her Pokemon training for contests, so her Pokemon might not grow stronger that fast. However, Dawn has had Piplup since the first season of the Diamond & Pearl series. Why hasn't it evolved yet? Dawn's Swinub is already a Mamoswine. Same goes for Buneary, actually. It hasn't evolved yet either. I guess Dawn doesn't spend too much time raising them. What do you think?

Well, the reason for that is because Piplup refused to evolve. There was an episode dedicated to Piplup's evolution and his resistence towards it. He eventually took a stone which stopped him evolving for good.

I see. I didn't know Piplup refused to evolve. I don't think I saw that episode.

Piplup, as said, refused to evolve and got an Everstone so that's why it didn't evolve.

I believe Buneary hasn't evolved because it has a role as liking Ash's Pikachu which would be weird if it turned into a Lopunny. It's also a sort of Dawn's icon Pokemon, or at least in my opinion it is.

Well it refused to but still took a long time for it to be able to evolve the reason for that who knows?

Well,piplup looks a lot cuter then its evolved forms so since dawn's a cord its a great choice for her and piplup.

Well, Pipulp's not the only one of Dawn's Pokemon that hasn't evolved. Why? Cuz they don't want to???

In relative terms, I'd say Piplup has a greater chance of evolving than Buneary in the foreseeable future. I don't know how the Pikachu-Buneary relationship is going right now, but Buneary evolving would make it quite awkward.

With Kenny and Barry already having evolved forms of Piplup... do we really want 3 Prinplups/Empoleons running around?

But yeah, Piplup's holding an Everstone. This is also discussed in the episode:
"Stopped in the Name of Love".

Is this really a serious question? Dawn's Piplup hasn't evolve becoz it's holding an everstone

I started this discussion because I hadn't seen the episode where Piplup refused to evolve. Now I know, and the fact that Piplup is holding an everstone has already been established.

Actually, Ash got Squirtle in the episode after he got Charmander.

Yep, but ash did get Bulbasaur before Charmander.
