Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Igglybuff only appears as a random trophy.

Trophy information

Igglybuff, which evolve into Jigglypuff, are so incredibly elastic that they always seem to be bouncing. They have stubby legs, so for these Pokémon, bounding from place to place is much faster than walking. Unlike its equally adorable relatives, Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff, Igglybuff has red eyes.

Trivia

  • Igglybuff is one of the few Pokémon to change its Template:Shiny2 form between generations. In Generation II, the alternate color had a green swirl and green eyes. In Generation III, Igglybuff's color became a little darker and there was red added to the still green eyes. In Generation IV, there was no more green.
  • Due to Igglybuff's soft, flexible pink body and its round shape, it bears a resemblance to Kirby. It shares these characteristics with Cleffa and Happiny. Igglybuff is also similar to Kirby because of its balloon-like characteristics.
  • Although the Pokédex states that when it starts rolling it becomes impossible to stop, it can not learn Rollout by level-up.

Name origin

Igglybuff's name rhymes with Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff. Its Japanese name is a variation on Template:P2, the Japanese word for pudding, or the addition of an extra pu to Jigglypuff's Japanese name – a combination of 風船 fūsen, balloon, and 膨れる fukureru, to expand or inflate.

In other languages

  • German: Fluffeluff
  • French: Toudoudou - From tout (all) and doux (soft) doubled.
  • Korean: 푸푸린 Pupurin
