Gold It hates light and shock. If attacked, it inflates its body to pump up its counterstrike.
Silver To keep its pitch-black tail hidden, it lives quietly in the darkness. It is never first to attack.
Crystal In order to conceal its black tail, it lives in a dark cave and only moves about at night.
Ruby If two or more WOBBUFFET meet, they will turn competitive and try to outdo each other’s endurance. However, they may try to see which one can endure the longest without food. TRAINERS need to beware of this habit.
