Pokémon Conquest

Pound is the only move of Igglybuff and Audino.

Super Smash Bros. series

Jigglypuff uses Pound as its B attack in Super Smash Bros. From Super Smash Bros. Melee onwards, Pound became its side B attack. It is mainly used as an alternate recovery move, since its up B attack, Sing, does not help Jigglypuff recover.
