Red
Blue
The body is soft and rubbery. When angered, it will suck in air and inflate itself to an enormous size.
Yellow Its body is full of elasticity. By inhaling deeply, it can continue to inflate itself without limit.
Gold Their fur feels so good that if two of them snuggle together, they won’t want to be separated.
Silver It has a very fine fur. Take care not to make it angry, or it may inflate steadily and hit with a BODY SLAM.
Crystal The rich, fluffy fur that covers its body feels so good that anyone who feels it can’t stop touching it.
Ruby WIGGLYTUFF has large, saucerlike eyes. The surfaces of its eyes are always covered with a thin layer of tears. If any dust gets in this POKéMON’s eyes, it is quickly washed away.
Sapphire WIGGLYTUFF’s body is very flexible. By inhaling deeply, this POKéMON can inflate itself seemingly without end. Once inflated, WIGGLYTUFF bounces along lightly like a balloon.
FireRed Its fur is extremely fine, dense, and supple. The exquisitely pleasant fur conveys an image of luxury.
LeafGreen The body is soft and rubbery. When angered, it will suck in air and inflate itself to an enormous size.
