Jiggly (Japanese: ぷりり Puriri) is the first Pokémon that Green owned in the Pokémon Adventures manga. As of Going Green, she is level 67.


Red, Green & Blue chapter

Jiggly has been with Green since childhood, when she was a Jigglypuff. She was one of two Pokémon Green was known to have while she lived with the Masked Man. Jiggly would eventually help Green and Silver escape from the Masked Man, allowing them to start a new life.

As a Jigglypuff

Jiggly, as Jigglypuff, first appeared in Tauros the Tyrant carrying Green and Red away from a group of Team Rocket Grunts who had come to retrieve the disc on the phantom Pokémon, Mew, which she stole from them earlier. After neither side succeeded in capturing Mew, and it had seemed Green had come to her senses and handed Red the Badges she stole, she was seen again taking flight for her as she said goodbye. However, as it turned out, the tricky girl had deceived Red again and given him fake copies, which she wouldn't reveal until the Silph Co. incident.

In A Little Kadabra'll Do It, Jiggly and Clefy were used to disrupt Sabrina's psychic powers. Green had her Pokémon attack Sabrina with Growl and Sing, disrupting Sabrina's psychic focus with the sound-based attacks. As the illusion vanished, Green decided that she couldn't fight the Gym Leader and her powers, and leaves the room with Sabrina's Marsh Badge.

In Just a Spearow Carrier, during the fight against "Dr. O" in the semifinals of the Pokémon League, Jiggly was the first Pokémon sent out against his Spearow, where Green conceitedly pronounced her "win" after hitting it with a Tri Attack, but it would strike right back with a Fury Attack. In retaliation, Green used a Sing attack, but the bird Pokémon was simply too high up for her to reach, and would deftly avoid the Tri-Attacks Jiggly used. Green then switched to Blasty and used an aerial Hydro Pump, but eventually lost to Spearow's Mirror Move. Afterwards, Oak questioned her for her theft of the former Squirtle, and after accepting her apology, handed her the third copy of the Pokédex.

Yellow chapter

In Playing Horsea, Jiggly was used to fly Green, Yellow, and Bill to sneak onto Cerise Island, where Horsea's Smokescreen was used in conjunction for camouflage.

FireRed & LeafGreen chapter

In Give It Your Best, Blastoise, Jiggly is seen alongside Green's other Pokémon to free Mewtwo from its M2 Bind. Saur, Blue's Charizard, and Blasty use their most powerful elemental attacks at once, and to ensure maximum power, Green evolves Jiggly to Wigglytuff alongside Nido and Snubbull, who became Nidoqueen and Granbull respectively, allowing them to provide greater support for the turtle's Hydro Cannon. They then teamed up to corner the remnants of Deoxys' clones.

Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire chapter

In PAORAS11, Green was seen using Jiggly for flight transportation while she and Red pursued Maxie and Archie, who had broken into Bill's Sea Cottage and stolen the Red and Blue Orbs from him.

Personality and characteristics

As Jiggly is the first Pokémon Green ever acquired, she is a fairly strong battler, but is more often seen transporting Green around by inflating herself, as before the Gold, Silver, & Crystal chapter, Green was intensely afraid of birds. Her ability to swell like hot air balloons came in handy during Green's escape with Silver when she pretended to be a wall the two hid in as though it was a dead end. Jiggly is a very relaxed and docile Pokémon and tends to adapt well to whatever is going on around her.
