Wigglytuff (Japanese: プクリン Pukurin) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

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 are sometimes known for being very aggressive and DoubleSlapping anyone that gets on their nerves.

Habitat

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

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

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

In the anime

Game data

NPC appearances

  • 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.

Trivia

  • Wigglytuff bears a slight resemblance to Mokona of the Magic Knight Rayearth and Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicle series. Mokona speaks only with the syllable "Pu", which is a variant of Wigglytuff's Japanese name.
  • In the first two generations, the white on Wigglytuff's body was just on its stomach, but starting in Generation III, the white part had extended over its mouth.
  • The backs of Wigglytuff's ears were plain up until Generation II where they were colored white at the ends on the back.

Origin

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
  • French: Grodoudou - Gros means fat or large, doudou is a word for a kind of doll or teddy that a baby may use for comfort and sleep with at night.
  • 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.
