Brittany (Japanese: チヒロ Chihiro) is a character of the day from the Pokémon anime. She appeared in Same Old Song and Dance.

Ash and his friends stumbled across Brittany while she was practicing a song and dance routine with her twin Igglybuff, Gigglybiff and Gigglybuff. Brock recognized Brittany as being the host of a talk show with the same name, as well as the singer of Brittany and the Loony Balloons. Brittany invited all of them to her concert later that evening.

At the concert, Team Rocket appeared and stole the Igglybuff twins, along with Jigglypuff. While Ash and Misty went with Brittany to look for the stolen Pokémon, Brock entertained the crowd with a song.

Soon, the Igglybuff twins were returned safely to Brittany, and the concert continued on as planned. Afterwards, Jigglypuff decided to perform using Sing and put everyone to sleep.

Gigglybiff and Gigglybuff
Gigglybiff (Jp: ププラン Pupuran) and Gigglybuff (Jp: ププルン Pupurun) are Brittany's twin Igglybuff. They perform with her on stage and are dressed up in many costumes. They first appeared when they were training for their performance when Ash and his friends come. Brittany then makes them perform for Ash and his friends and are impressed. Suddenly Jigglypuff appears and starts to bully the two Igglybuff without the group noticing. That evening the show starts and the Igglybuff perform perfectly, but suddenly Team Rocket appear. Weezing uses SmokeScreen and they steal the duo.

Ash, Misty and Brittany chase after them and finally find them, they are able to free the Igglybuff, the duo use Charm before Pikachu sends them blasting off. In the end, Gigglybiff and Gigglybuff are able to put on another dazzling performance.

Gigglybiff and Gigglybuff's known moves are Charm and Sweet Kiss.

A Brittany look-a-like second from the right
  • Her Japanese name, Chihiro, is a possible reference to idol singer Chihiro Yonekura, while her English name, Brittany, is a possible reference to the famous pop star Britney Spears.
  • Brittany is somewhat similar to Bailey in the fact that she had two of the same Pokémon that performed together. Also, both of their pairs of Pokémon have nicknames that are similar to their partners. (Bailey owns two Bellossom named Belle and Bella. Brittany's Igglybuff are named Gigglybiff and Gigglybuff.)
  • One of the girls seen in the Striaton Gym in Triple Leaders, Team Threats! has a striking resemblance to Brittany.
