Liquiput and its line are the most balanced out of the three. It has a decent bulk, while still being able to put some offensive pressure with its mostly Special Attacks. It's also proficient on hindering status and dealing indirect damage.
As expected from a semi-defensive Pokémon, it's main weakness lies on its low Speed, giving most of its opponents an opening to take it down before it starts dealing some damage back.
Liquiput may be a portmanteau of liquid and Lilliputian (a term that originally referred to the race of tiny people from the land of Lilliput in the book Gulliver's Travels; it now also bears the meaning of "very small").
