Wigglytuff (Japanese: プクリン Pukurin) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Jigglypuff via Moon Stone. It is the final form of Igglybuff.

Biology

Physiology

Wigglytuff resembles a pink blob with a fluffy tuft of fur on its head and long rabbit-like ears and a white belly. It has large blue eyes and stubby arms and legs like its pre-evolution, Jigglypuff.

Gender differences

None.

Special abilities

Wigglytuff are capable of inflating themselves to big sizes in order to scare off enemies. Wigglytuff can also sing soothing lullabies to make anyone fall asleep, but its reputation for doing so isn't as famous as its basic form, Jigglypuff. Like Clefable and its pre-evolutions, Wigglytuff is capable of wielding various elemental attacks.

Behavior

Despite its cute demeanor, Wigglytuff is sometimes known for being very aggressive and slapping anyone that gets on its nerves.

Habitat

Wigglyfuff can be found in vivid green plains and grassy fields.

Diet

Apparently, Wigglytuff love eating Perfect Apples, as shown in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2.

Major appearances

In Lights, Camera, Quacktion!, Cleavon Schpielbunk was going to have a Wigglytuff have the starring role in his movie, "Pokémon in Love", alongside Misty's Psyduck.

Harley used a Wigglytuff in the Kanto Grand Festival. Harley's Wigglytuff wears a rather sinister expression, possibly reflecting it's trainer.

Guild Master Wigglytuff makes an appearance in the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Time & Darkness special. He assigns a mission to save Shinx's brother to Team PokéPals. Wigglytuff also happens to be able to fall asleep with his eyes open.

Minor appearances

A Wigglytuff was seen in Mewtwo Strikes Back. It was captured and cloned by Mewtwo.

A Wigglytuff is used in the Fallarbor Contest.

In the manga

Game data

NPC appearances

  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Wigglytuff sells Friend Areas in Pokémon Square.
  • Pokémon Mystery Dungeon 2: Wigglytuff is the head of the main guild in Treasure Town. His personality tends to be erratic, but he cares about all his friends in the guild, especially his close partner Chatot. He also has a love (some would say obsession) of Perfect Apples, and is basically all he eats. He can often be seen bouncing one off his head during dinner. He is described as peculiar and weird in the game, although he is exceptionally strong, defeating the whole of Team Skull and Kabutops and the Omastar Brothers, as well as numerous others, with ease. Chatot warns not to annoy or disrespect Wigglytuff, as he is liable to explode with anger.

Trivia

Name origin

Wigglytuff's name is a combination of wiggly and tuffwiggly refers to its wobbly shape, and tuff may refer to either its toughness or the tuft of hair on its head. Its Japanese name may simply be a corruption of プリン purin, pudding. It may also be a combination of 風船 fūsen, balloon, and 膨れる fukureru, to expand or inflate.

In other languages

  • German: Knuddeluff - From knuddeln (to cuddle) and fluff.
  • French: Grodoudou - From gros (fat or large), and doudou, a word for a teddy or a doll that babies tend to use for comfort.
  • Korean: 푸크린 Pukeurin
  • Chinese: 胖可丁 (Pang Ke Ding) - Possibly a corrupted transliteration of its Japanese name, Pukurin. The character 胖 means fat, chubby.
  • Chinese: 肥波球 (Fei Po Qiu) - 波球 is from Jigglypuff's Chinese name, 波波球, while 肥 means fat.
