Jigglypuff (Japanese: プリン Purin) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Igglybuff via happiness, and evolves into Wigglytuff when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Biology

Physiology

Jigglypuff appear as round pink balls with two small, cat-like ears and very large eyes. Their bodies are soft and rubbery. They have small arms and legs. A Jigglypuff has a curl on its forehead. Jigglypuff also appear to be filled with air, as a defeated Jigglypuff in Pokémon Stadium (and its sequels) deflates and floats to the ground like a piece of paper.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Jigglypuff is most known for singing soothing lullabies that can make almost anything sleep. Like Clefairy, Jigglypuff is also capable of learning various elemental attacks. They can also float in the air and easily blown by the wind.

Behavior

Habitat

Jigglypuff can sometimes be found inside of caves, but are more often found in vivid green plains and grassy fields. Some Jigglypuff can also be found in the cities and towns. It is normally native to Kanto, Johto and Hoenn.

Major appearances

From The Song of Jigglypuff through the end of the Johto series, a wild Jigglypuff followed Ash Ketchum's group, intent on performing its trademark song without causing its audience to fall asleep. It rarely, if ever, succeeded. Jigglypuff would scribble all over the faces of anyone who fell asleep after hearing the song. After Johto, Jigglypuff suddenly stopped appearing. It reappeared being featured in one early Advanced Generation episode.

A green-eyed Jigglypuff was featured in Rough, Tough Jigglypuff, who was voiced by 池田千草 Chigusa Ikeda. Mitch Mitchum wanted to capture this Balloon Pokémon for his daughter's birthday.

Ursula used a Jigglypuff during her Double Performance along with her Gabite in the Daybreak Town Contest in Yes in Dee Dee, It's Dawn!.

Marina's Jigglypuff

Marina also has a Jigglypuff. She used it to battle against Jimmy's Beedrill and in a Super Contest with Wani-Wani later on.

Other

Minor appearances

A Jigglypuff was used by one of the students of the Pokémon Trainer's School in Gonna Rule The School!.

A Jigglypuff appeared in The Saffron Con! as a Pokémon owned by a Coordinator.

A Jigglypuff appeared in Stopped in the Name of Love!.

In the manga

In the Electric Tale of Pikachu manga

In Clefairy in Space, a girl named Mimi owns a Jigglypuff, considering it to be her best friend. Her Jigglypuff helps defend a herd of wild Clefairy from Jessie and James of Team Rocket.

In the Magical Pokémon Journey manga

Main article: Jigglypuff (MPJ)

A Jigglypuff is one of the main characters from the Magical Pokémon Journey manga. She is a rich, spoiled Pokémon who lives in a mansion with her sister, Wigglytuff, and a butler, Squirtle. She loves to cook, despite the fact that she is a bad chef and her cooking often causes others to become ill.

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Main article: Green's Wigglytuff

Green of Pokémon Adventures has a Jigglypuff; notably it is the only Pokémon on her team without a nickname despite being the first Pokémon she ever got (however, it does have one in the Japanese version). The reason for this is that during her captivity under the Masked Man, she was reprimanded for doing so ("Pokémon don't need nicknames!"). Jigglypuff is capable of swelling up to several times its size, allowing Green to float with it like a hot-air balloon as well as block narrow passageways -- a tactic instrumental in helping Silver and her escape the Masked Man. It evolved in PS288 into a Wigglytuff alongside two of Green's other Pokémon with the power of her Moon Stones.

Other appearances

Smash Bros. Series

Jigglypuff is a playable character in all three Super Smash Bros. games. This Jigglypuff's alternate costumes are usually associated with feminine headwear, and therefore most Smash fans refer to the Jigglypuff in the series as a female. Strangely enough, Jigglypuff's Rest attack does damage in all three games of the series, even though in the Pokémon games Rest does no damage, but instead recovers damage.

Super Smash Bros.

Jigglypuff is a playable character. It is unlocked by completing 1-Player Mode once with any character. Jigglypuff's attacks in this game are Sing, Pound, and Rest. At times, Rest can KO an opponent from 0% damage.

Super Smash Bros. Melee

Jigglypuff in Super Smash Bros. Melee (Japanese)

Jigglypuff is a playable character. It is unlocked by completing Classic or Adventure Mode once with any character and so is usually the first character to be unlocked. It keeps all its attacks from the original game, although Sing keeps opponents asleep for less time, and Pound's button combo was changed. Jigglypuff also gained the attack Rollout, which varies in power (and ease of control) the longer the B button is held down.

Trophy information
Classic Mode

This Balloon Pokémon invites its opponents in close with its big, round eyes and then puts them to sleep with a soothing lullaby. It puffs itself up when angry, and while it may look adorable, it's not to be trifled with; it knows several powerful techniques. Jigglypuff evolves into Wigglytuff after exposure to a Moon Stone.

Adventure Mode

Jigglypuff's normal attacks are weak, and because of its light weight it's easily sent flying. However, with its incredible midair agility, it seems to dance when airborne. Rollout is a powerful speed attack, but players must be careful not to fly off the edge. Pound does serious damage, and it can also help as a recovery move.

All-Star Mode

Jigglypuff can put its enemies to sleep if they are in range of its Sing attack, although the attack does not work on airborne foes. Rest puts Jigglypuff into a deep sleep, but at the instant it drops off, an intense energy force radiates out of the exact center of its body. If this force comes in contact with an enemy, look out! Rest is Jigglypuff's wild card.

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

File:SSBB Jigglypuff.png
Jigglypuff in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

Jigglypuff is a playable character that must be unlocked once again, yet plays no major role in the Adventure Mode: The Subspace Emissary. Jigglypuff's Final Smash, Puff Up, makes Jigglypuff grow to a tremendous size, eclipsing the entire battlefield. In this state, Jigglypuff is invulnerable, but also immobile. Once Jigglypuff has grown to its full size, it shouts and if anyone is making contact with Jigglypuff when this happens, they are inflicted with damage are knocked back considerably.

Subspace Emissary

Jigglypuff is one of three characters that can only be encountered after completing the story, the others being Wolf and Toon Link. It can be found behind a secret door in the second half of "The Swamp" stage. After that, Jigglypuff must be battled in the Pokémon Stadium 2 stage. Once Jigglypuff is defeated, it will join the team and will be unlocked if not yet obtained.

Codec information (on Shadow Moses Island)
  • Solid Snake: "Aw, there's a big eyeball walking around here..."
  • Roy Campbell: "That's just Jigglypuff."
  • Solid Snake: "Jigglypuff? That some kind of marshmallow?"
  • Roy Campbell: "Jigglypuff is a balloon-shaped Pokémon. It may be light and puffy and full of air, but its Sleep ability is devastating."
  • Solid Snake: "Sleep...? What's so devastating about it going to sleep?"
  • Roy Campbell: "The instant it falls asleep, there's a huge buildup of energy in its center of gravity. If it hits you, it's lights out for sure."
  • Solid Snake: "So it puts a lot of energy into sleeping? Sounds pretty irresponsible if you ask me."
  • Roy Campbell: "Takes all kinds, Snake. Especially here in 'Brawl.'"


Trophy information
Classic Mode

A Balloon Pokémon. It invites opponents in close with its big, round eyes, then puts them to sleep with a calming song. The secret to the song's unfailing efficacy is Jigglypuff's ability to sing on the wavelength that will make its opponent the sleepiest. It also uses Attract to infatuate opponents who touch it. It uses a Moon Stone to evolve into Wigglytuff.

All-Star Mode

Jigglypuff's Final Smash. It wills its body to get bigger and bigger and bigger. It can't move, and it can't attack--all it can do is get bigger while everyone else looks on. However, it's invulnerable, and it overpowers all attacks to gradually push its opponents off the screen. It's a very simple technique, but how it's used determines its effectiveness.

Trivia

  • The Jigglypuff in the Smash Bros. series and Rough, Tough Jigglypuff have green eyes like a shiny Jigglypuff.
  • Jigglypuff's evolutionary family shares the same species name with Qwilfish and Drifloon. They are all known as Balloon Pokémon.
  • Jigglypuff's Crystal still sprite is different from that of Gold and Silver, making it one of few Pokémon to have three distinctly different sprites in Generation II.
  • Jigglypuff in the 3D games, anime and the official promotional pictures usually has green eyes and tea rose pink fur, resembling more closely the shiny version than the normal one.
  • In the Super Smash Bros. series, Jigglypuff is the only character to keep its original voice track through all three games.

Origin

It appears to be based on a balloon and a pink puff. Because of its color, shape, as well as its ability to puff up and float, Jigglypuff may have also been based on Kirby.

Name origin

Jigglypuff's name is a combination of jiggly and puff, referring to its wobbly shape and ability to inflate itself. Many people have been unable to decipher its Japanese name, but concede that it may simply be taken from the Japanese word for pudding, purin. It may also be a combination of 風船 fūsen, balloon, and 膨れる fukureru, to expand or inflate.

In other languages

  • German: Pummeluff - From pummelig (chubby) and fluff.
  • French: Rondoudou - From rond (round/chubby), and doudou, a word for a teddy or a doll that babies tend to use for comfort. Also twice contains doux which means "soft" (quite accurately what Jigglypuff would feel like), and maybe roudoudou, which is a kind of French confectionery made of fruit-flavored cooked sugar in a scallop shell, as well as an affectionate child's nickname.
  • Korean: 푸린 Purin
  • Chinese (Taiwan): 胖丁 Pàng Dīng - Possibly a corrupted transliteration of its Japanese name, Purin. The character 胖 means fat, chubby.
  • Chinese (Hong Kong): 波波球 (Po Po Qiu) - Corruption of its Japanese name, Purin. The characters 波 and 球 mean ball/sphere, which Jigglypuff looks like.
