Wobbuffet has the Shadow Tag Ability. This Ability prevents the opponent from switching out their Pokémon, along with preventing Wild Pokémon, such as Suicune or Cresselia from running away, but Pokémon can still be switched out with the use of Baton Pass. A second Ability is available to Wobbuffet from the Dream World, the Telepathy Ability. This Ability prevents it from taking damage from its allies during Double and Triple Battles.
Wobbuffet is in the Amorphous Egg Group, and the Egg of its offspring takes approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch; if breeding while holding a Lax Incense a Wyanut will hatch from the Egg. It takes Wobbuffet One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.
Wobbuffet takes on the appearance of a walking blue blob with two arms and a black tail.

 Anime/Manga Information
In the episode Tricks of the Trade, Jessie would accidentally trade her Lickitung to another Trainer for a Wobbuffet, a Wobbuffet that would appear for many episodes thereafter, oftentimes letting itself out of its Poké Ball, irritating Jessie many times. Its most recent appearance was part of the episode Memories Are Made of Bliss.
The episode Wobbu-palooza featured a village that celebrates with their Wobbuffet and other Wobbuffet trainers, which would end up with Team Rocket helping to save the village from a biker gang.
Jessie's Wobbuffet appears in Spell of the Unown, Mewtwo Returns, Celebi: Voice of the Forest, Heroes: Latios & Latias, Jirachi Wishmaker, Destiny Deoxys, Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, The Rise of Darkrai, and Zoroark: Master of Illusions.

 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Wobbuffet Finds itself in the Borderline Tier, along with the Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling. While it remains a dangerous wall thanks to a massive HP Statistic and access to both Counter and Mirror Coat, along with trapping opponents in most circumstances with Shadow Tag unless they switch out with Baton Pass, Volt Switch or U-turn.
As a result of Wobbuffet's low Speed, hitting it with Toxic or Will-o-Wisp will limit the amount of time the blue blob is in battle. Taunt also shuts down its three Status Attacks: Safeguard, Encore, and Tickle. Predicting when Wobbuffet will be switched in can work as well if hit hard enough with a powerful move. However, one poorly planned move against a Wobbuffet will lead to being down a Pokémon.
