Just Thought of These:

Staller: Light Screen(doubles wigglytuffs low sp. defense), Reflect(Dobles Wigglytuffs low defense), Toxic(You Knew it Was Coming), and Hyper Voice(STAB).

Sweeper: Sing(Though I Hate It, Its needed here), Psychic(Covers Fighting), Hyper Voice(STAB), and Brick Break(Gets Rid Of Rock/Steel Walls).

Brick Break or Gyro Ball? Maybe Focus Blast instead because this seems to be a Sp. Attack moveset.

I've been getting into NU, Guildmaster Wigglytuff is known for the Hyper Voice, but what about the punching?

enter image description here

Wigglytuff @ Leftovers
Trait: Cute Charm
EV Spread: 252 HP/252 Atk/4 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
- Power Up Punch
- Drain Punch
- Return
- Ice Punch/Thunderpunch/Fire Punch/Knock Off

Get that attack up with Power Up Punch and then heal it off with Drain Punch. Return is STAB, and the last slot is Knock Off or the Elemental Punch of your choice.

Gen V Set for Jigglypuff

Jigglypuff (M) @ Eviolite

Trait: Cute Charm

EVs: 4 HP / 252 Def / 252 SDef

Impish Nature (+Def, -SAtk)

  • Counter
  • Seismic Toss
  • Disable
  • Wish

Use Counter, do a ton of damage to the foe. If they use Special Attacks, just hit them with Seismic Toss, mixed attackers you might be able to Disable their Special Attack. Wish works with high HP, so the next Pokemon can get a lot of health. Not the best wall, but I have a set for it, so I just decided to post it.

Gen V

Wigglytuff (F) @ Custap Berry

Trait: Cute Charm

EVs: 252 HP / 252 Def / 4 SDef

Bold Nature (+Def, -Atk)

  • Counter
  • Hyper Voice
  • Endeavor
  • Shadow Ball

The trick here is to use Counter (hoping Wigglytuff survives) to do a ton of damage to the foe and defeat them. The Custap Berry will then activate, allowing you to move first (except in the case of priority) next turn. So you'd use Endeavor and make the foe have really low health, so YOU can then use a revenge killer. Hyper Voice and Shadow Ball are just there for special attackers, Hyper Voice for STAB and Shadow Ball for Ghost types. EVs are intended to make you survive the hit, but no worry, you'll still be taking a lot of damage. Cute Charm is better than Frisk.

Wigglytuff (M) @ Leftovers

Ability: Cute Charm

EVs: 128 HP / 252 SAtk / 128 Spd

Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)

  • Thunderbolt
  • Ice Beam
  • Flamethrower
  • Thunder Wave

Alot like a Para-Sweeper.

You use Thunder Wave ( With the Bulk to use it ) And then use Bolt Beam and Flamethrower to sweep through opponents with super effective coverage on a good bit of opponents.

Double/Triple Battle

Wigglytuff (M) @ Light Clay
Trait: Cute Charm
EVs: 196 Def / 156 SAtk / 156 SDef
Modest Nature (+SAtk, -Atk)
- Reflect
- Light Screen
- Hyper Voice
- Blizzard

Dual Screen support! It can also have the added effect of making Wigglytuff bulky. Hyper Voice is STAB that can hit multiple foes. Blizzard is high power, multiple Pokemon hitting.

i can only come up with the moveset that is in the generation 3, so here it is

-toxic (well, isnt it obvious?)

-return (if ur Pokemon loves you alot,STAB)/double edge(if ur Pokemon dont really love you,STAB)

-shadow ball (this move would make a ghost type Pokemon literally cry,because ghost move cant touch wigglytuff, and ghost moves are effective on ghost type Pokemon.

-psychic (you do want to fight off fight type Pokemon,dont you?)

Gen 6 Wigglytuff

Wigglytuff @ Expert Belt
Ability: Competitive
EVs: 127 Def, 127 SDef, 128 Atk, 128 SAtk
Relaxed Nature

-Brick Break
-Play Rough/Dazzling Gleam

Finding a move set was hard for me. However, I believe that Wigglytuff can be useful, especially in cases like mine, when you are making a fairy-based team. Flamethrower is useful for Mega Scizor and Lucario. Psychic is for Mega Gengar. Brick Break is used for coverage. It depends on whether or not you choose Play Rough or Dazzling Gleam. Play Rough has higher power and reduces the Attack stat but has lower accuracy. Dazzling Gleam has 100% accuracy and can hit multiple opponents but is weaker. Due to its base stat, I would recommend Play Rough

Trade Brick Break for Focus Blast seeing this should be a Special set.

Lamer Special Bisharp! This guy received a lot of buffs this gen.

Wigglytuff@Life Orb/Leftovers/Assault Vest
Ability: Competitive
Nature: Modest
EVs: 252 HP / 252 SAtk / 4 HP

Dazzling Gleam- STAB

Fire Blast/Flamethrower- Coverage.

Thunder- Coverage.

Focus Blast/Shadow Ball- More coverage.

EDIT: Usage Tips

Wigglytuff is very slow and easy to wear down so Wish support is nice. Steel removal is crucial to Wigglytuff's success as most can just Bullet Punch or downright outspeed so pair it with steel ripping monsters such as Charizard X and Magnezone. Heatran is also a big threat to Wigglytuff and the currently laid down team so have something for that.

GuildMaster (Wigglytuff)@Life Orb / Leftovers
enter image description here
Role: Stealth Rock Support
Trait: Competitive
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Sp. Atk / 4 Sp. Def

  • Thunder Wave / Heal Bell
  • Stealth Rock
  • Dazzling Gleam
  • Hyper Voice / Focus Blast

    (This set is originally made for PU, but it could be used in NU)

Set Details:

After experimenting with some sets for Wigglytuff, I found that its niche lies in its Competitive ability and access to Stealth Rocks.

Thunder Wave is good for crippling the opposing sweepers, while Heal Bell provides support for the team.
Stealth Rock is a good entry hazard that can force the opponent to use Defog and, thus, activating Competitive.
Dazzling Gleam + Hyper Voice provides dual STABs. Note that Dazzling Gleam allows Wigglytuff to deal with Fighting-types and Dark-types, such as Poliwrath and Mightyena. Hyper Voice is a good spammable STAB move for dealing with Substitute users and neutral coverage. Focus Blast can be used as an alternative to Hyper Voice, since it deals with Rock or Steel-types that Wigglytuff struggles against.

Maximum Sp. Atk investment + Modest Nature + Life Orb is needed to maximize Wigglytuff's damage output. However, Leftovers can be used to increase Wigglytuff's life span and gives gradual recovery. The full investment in HP is helpful in increasing Wigglytuff's bulk.

Some other options for moves can be a cleric set (in the form of Wish + Heal Bell) but this is generally outclassed by better clerics, such as Lickilicky. Focus Sash is a possible item for reliably setting up Stealth Rocks, but you would have to change the EV spread to 252 Sp. Atk / 252 Speed / 4 Sp. Def

Usage Tips:

I'll be brief here: Wigglytuff is mainly used for early-game to mid-game and should only set up Stealth Rock when offensive threats are removed (namely Rampardos).

Possible Team Members:

Wigglytuff works well on Balanced or even Bulky Offense teams. For this reason, Poliwrath or Machoke are good options (they also deal with Steel and Rock-types so you don't need to run Focus Blast). Roselia also works well and sets up Spikes and Toxic Spikes. Misdreavus may also provide valuable support in the form of Will-O-Wisp and Taunt and it even acts as a spin-blocker!

Hope I helped!
