Igglybuff in the anime.

Igglybuff was first seen as one of the Pokémon in the Pichu Brothers' Possé in Pikachu and Pichu.

Igglybuff twins appeared in Same Old Song & Dance. These Igglybuff were owned by a girl named Brittany and were practicing for a concert. Jigglypuff was jealous towards the Igglybuff twins as they were stealing its audience.

An Igglybuff was one of the Pokémon Spoink mistook for its lost pearl in Pearls are a Spoink's Best Friend.

In the manga

Whitney owns an Igglybuff.

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 Shiny 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.

Origin

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 - This French corruption means All soft soft.
  • Korean: 푸푸린 Pupurin
