Igglybuff the Prodigy (Japanese: てんさいププリン Pupurin Genius) is the second special episode in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky. It is unlocked after completing Chapter 9. In this special episode, it is revealed how Guildmaster Wigglytuff became an explorer.
Igglybuff and his friends are sharing some gummis when two bullies, a Banette and a Skorupi, arrive. They demand some gummis from Igglybuff, who is the only one who isn't intimidated by them. He willingly gives them gummis.
The next day, Banette and Skorupi say that they want to go exploring in Murky Forest. All of Igglybuff's friends refuse, saying that they have heard rumours that there is a monster in the forest.
Igglybuff agrees to go to Murky Forest. Deep in the forest, an Armaldo appears, scaring off Banette and Skorupi. When he sees that Igglybuff hasn't left, he tells him to go home. But Igglybuff says that he'll only leave if Armaldo tells him what he is doing in the forest.
They go to Armaldo's house, where Armaldo tells Igglybuff that he is an explorer. He shows Igglybuff a map, while tellig him that he's been trying to decipher it for a long time. Igglybuff sets the map on fire. Armaldo immediately grabs it and extinguishes it using Water Gun. When he brushes away the charred parts of the map, he realises that there is a second layer underneath. Igglybuff explains that he saw that the map was very thick, and therefore must have two layers. Examining the map, they find a place called Eastern Cave. Igglybuff asks Armaldo if he can go there with him. Armaldo says he is a retired explorer, but Igglybuff manages to persuade him to go.
At the bottom of the cave, they find a chest containing a Defend Globe.
They go on many more explorations. When they return from one of these, they are followed by a Nidoking. The next day, they decide to visit a place called Fortune Ravine. When they reach a relay point, Armaldo explains that this often means that there is a boss in the dungeon. Meanwhile back at Igglybuff's house, the Nidoking arrives and says that he is an explorer and that he has something to tell them.
At the bottom of the dungeon, Igglybuff and Armaldo are attacked by an Exploud, a Vespiquen, a Yanmega, a Probopass, a Claydol, and a Camerupt. After defeating them, they exit the dungeon. Outside, they encounter Igglybuff's parents, his friends, Nidoking and Magnezone. Magnezone says that Armaldo is an S-Rank Outlaw. Igglybuff cannot believe it. As Magnezone is about to take him away, Armaldo throws the Defend Globe to Igglybuff.
