Igglybuff (Japanese: ププリン Pupurin) is a dual-type Normal/Fairy baby Pokémon, and prior to Generation VI, a pure Normal-type Pokémon.

It evolves into Jigglypuff when leveled up with high friendship, which evolves into Wigglytuff when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Biology

Igglybuff is a small, bipedal balloon-like animal that is completely pink. It has a rounded tuft of hair on top of its head, a small swirl-like pattern on its forehead, and red eyes. Igglybuff has small, stubby limbs. This small Pokémon is extremely elastic and can bounce like a ball, although it may not be able to stop if it does this. It smells sweet to calm the emotions of its foes. Although it has singing abilities, it is not able to sing for long periods due to its underdeveloped vocal cords. It often gets a sore throat from singing too frequently. Igglybuff tend to live in the grasslands close by freshwater streams. It uses water from the streams to gargle in its sore throat.

In the manga

Igglybuff in Pokémon Adventures

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Whitney owns an Igglybuff, which she used to battle (what she thought was) Suicune when she visited the Mahogany Gym. Its Sweet Kiss provided an opening for her Miltank to attack the creature, but failed when the moving ice sculpture felled Miltank and forced it to team up with Pryce's Swinub.

An Igglybuff appeared in The Last Battle XIII as one of the Pokémon sent to help the fight in Ilex Forest.

In the TCG

Main article: Igglybuff (TCG)

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.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky

An Igglybuff stars as the player character in the special episode Igglybuff the Prodigy. This Igglybuff is the unevolved Guildmaster Wigglytuff from the main story.

Trivia

Origin

It is based on a balloon, like its evolutions.

Name origin

Igglybuff rhymes with Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff. Iggly is a shortening of jiggly and wiggly, indicating it is less than either of its evolutionary line.

Pupurin may be a combination of プチ puchi (petit), 風船 fūsen (balloon), and 膨れる fukureru (to expand or inflate), as well as a pun on プリン purin (pudding).
