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.

Crystal The rich, fluffy fur that covers its body feels so good that anyone who feels it can’t stop touching it.

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.
