Igglybuff (ププリン) is the 43rd Pokémon in the Johto Pokédex. It is a Normal/Fairy-Type, and is known as the Balloon Pokémon.

Igglybuff can use one of two Abilities: Cute Charm; inside of battle, this means that any Pokémon that make contact with Igglybuff have a 30% chance of being Infatuated; or Competitive, which increases its Special Attack by two stages whenever one of its Statistics gets lowered by an opponent. Its Hidden Ability is Friend Guard, which only takes effect in Double and Triple Battles, but this Ability in the aforementioned battles allows Allied Pokémon to take reduced damage from attacks.

Igglybuff gain the opportunity to evolve into Jigglypuff through high Happiness and Leveling Up, and can evolve a second time into Wigglytuff by using a Moon Stone.

Igglybuff is in the Undiscovered Egg Group, but Eggs bred from one of its Evolutions will hatch after approximately 2,805 steps. It will take an Igglybuff 800,000 experience to reach Level 100.
