Ballio and Pinnister are the names given to a fan-made Pokémon evolution from Popplio, the water starter Pokémon from the 2016 games Pokémon Sun and Moon. Since his reveal on 4chan in mid-2016 as an alleged leak, he gained both an ironic and unironic fandom due his disturbing appearance.


The original thread was created in May 16th, 2016, where an anonymous user posted a supposed leak of the final evolutions from the 7th Pokémon generation starters. From all the leaks, the one that catched most attention from the viewers the evolution of Popplio, the water starter, featuring a clown-like sea lion creature holding a giant water ball.[1]
