I don't think it'll evolve in the near future, but someday, one day, 2 or 3 years from now after Dawn leaves. Piplup is only here for DP, it's about as permanent a mascot as the other starters. Once 5th Gen rolls around, whenever that is, Piplup gets the boot, now free to evolve if or whenever it wishes to, another girly coordinator and bird starter gets milked for all their worth, and the cycle repeats.
