Igglybuff (Japanese: ププリン Pupurin) is a dual-type Normal/Fairy baby Pokémon introduced in Generation II. Prior to Generation VI, it was a pure Normal-type.

It evolves into Jigglypuff when leveled up with high friendship, which evolves into Wigglytuff when exposed to a Moon Stone.

Contents

Biology

Igglybuff is a small, bipedal balloon-like animal that is completely pink. Its body can change to deep pink when the temperature increases. It has a rounded tuft of hair on top of its head, a small swirl-like pattern on its forehead, and red eyes. Igglybuff has small, stubby limbs. This small Pokémon is extremely elastic and can bounce like a ball, although it may not be able to stop if it does this.

It smells sweet to calm the emotions of its foes. Although it has singing abilities, it is not able to sing for long periods due to its underdeveloped vocal cords. It often gets a sore throat from singing too frequently. Igglybuff tend to live in the grasslands close by freshwater streams. It uses water from the streams to gargle in its sore throat.

Trophy information

Igglybuff, which evolve into Jigglypuff, are so incredibly elastic that they always seem to be bouncing. They have stubby legs, so for these Pokémon, bounding from place to place is much faster than walking. Unlike its equally adorable relatives, Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff, Igglybuff has red eyes.

Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Explorers of Sky

Igglybuff stars as the player character in the special episode Igglybuff the Prodigy. This Igglybuff is the unevolved Guildmaster Wigglytuff from the main story.

Trivia

Origin

Igglybuff is based on a balloon, just like its evolved forms.

Name origin

Igglybuff rhymes with Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff. Iggly is a shortening of jiggly and wiggly, indicating it is less than either of its evolutionary line.
