Purugly (ブニャット) is the 77th Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Normal-Type, and is known as the Tiger Cat Pokémon.

Purugly can use one of two Abilities: Thick Fat, which reduces the damage it takes from Fire-Type and Ice-Type moves by 50%, or Own Tempo, which prevents it from becoming Confused, even if an Allied Pokémon used Teeter Dance. A third Ability is available to Glameow from the Dream World, the Defiant Ability. This Ability increases its Attack by two stages when an opposing Pokémon uses a move that lowers its Statistics.

Glameow can evolve into Purugly at Level 38.

Purugly is in the Field Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Purugly 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.

Game Information

Original Games

Purugly appears on Route 222 and Route 229 in Pokémon Pearl. The only other game that Purugly appears in is Pokémon White 2, but it can only be obtained by evolving a Purugly.

Spin-Off Games

The only way to obtain a Purugly is to evolve a Glameow in Explorers of Time, Explorers of Darkness and Explorers of Sky. Purugly is exclusive to Light Adventure Squad in Mystery Dungeon 3, appearing at Weird Forest 1F-12F and the following floors of Legendary Mountains: 27 & 28, 30-33, 37, 40-42 and 46-48.

Purugly appears on the Cargo Ship in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Purugly appears in the Old Mansion's Dining Room in the Present, and in the Ice Temple missions "Round and Round! Find the Floor!" and "Don't Look Back! Run Through the Path" in the Past by defeating it and obtaining its Slate.

Purugly appears at Everspring Valley Meadow 4-2 in Pokémon Rumble Blast.

Trading Card Game

Purugly is listed as a Common Card in the Platinum set, an Uncommon Card in the Great Encounters set, and as a Rare Card in the Diamond and Pearl set.

Anime/Manga Information

Anime

Mars, a Team Galactic Commander, has used a Purugly since the episode Double Team Turnover, and would continue to use Purugly until Team Galactic's final appearance in the Anime.

Movies

A Wild Purugly appears in the film The Rise of Darkrai, while another trainer uses a Purugly in Giratina and the Sky Warrior.

Manga

Purugly's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

Pokémon Information

Competitive Battling

Purugly finds itself in the Never-Utilized Tier of Competitive Battling. It's best asset is its high Speed, but that's its only strong Statistic--its other Statistics are mediocre at best, and its attacks are geared towards physical attacks, making physical defenders a good counter. While Purugly can still use Super Fang to cut the HP of its target in half, a harder-hitting Pokémon with a high Speed will have little problems dealing with the Tiger Cat Pokémon.
