Wigglytuff (プクリン) is the 40th Pokémon in the Pokédex. Prior to Generation VI Wigglytuff was a Normal-Type, from then onward becoming a Normal-Fairy/Type, and it is known as the Balloon Pokémon.

Wigglytuff can use one of two Abilities: Cute Charm, which has an effect when a Pokémon of the opposite gender uses an attack that requires physical contact, there is a 30% chance of that Pokémon becoming Infatuated with this Pokémon; or Competitive, which increases its Special Attack by two stages whenever an opposing Pokémon lowers one of its Statistics. Its Hidden Ability is Frisk, which reveals the hold item of its opponent at the start of battle, or when entered into battle.

Starting in Generation II, an Igglybuff can evolve into Jigglypuff by forming a strong bond with its Trainer and Leveling Up, known as a Friendship Evolution. Jigglypuff can evolve into Wigglytuff by using a Moon Stone.

Wigglytuff is in the Fairy Egg Group, and its Egg takes approximately 2,560 Steps to hatch. It takes Wigglytuff 800,000 Experience Points to reach Level 100.
