  • HP: 140
  • Attack: 70
  • Defense: 45
  • Special Attack: 75
  • Special Defense: 50
  • Speed: 45
Description

It is such a shame that Wigglytuff possesses so horrific Defense stats accompanied with a really low Speed stat since it has such a various movepool and an immense amount of Hit Points! It similar to Clefable in many ways but is in overall, more Underused than Clefable.

Training Grounds

This section is to advise you on the areas in which you can train for the acquisition of the Effort Points presented above. It is recommended you use 10 vitamins on the stat you desire to raise. Do not use vitamins on stats that require less than 100 Effort Points. Equip the Macho Brace on your Pokémon to speed up the process even more.

Yellow Scarf
Contest Moveset 1
Pound [Tough]
Doubelslap [Tough]
Double-Edge [Tough]
Focus Punch [Tough]

Wigglytuff family are totally suited for contests due to their movepool which makes them pretty much, good in every type of contest! Here, I present you one Tough Wiggly but I will soon update it with even more sets.

For the Tough Contest, make use of Pound and Doubleslap which make a nice combo, or Focus Punch and then appeal with Double-Edge without occurring the risk of being jammed.

More precisely

  • If you appeal 1st, 2nd or 3rd:
    • Round 1: Pound/Focus Punch
    • Round 2: Doubleslap/Double-Edge
    • Round 3: Pound/Focus Punch
    • Round 4: Doubleslap/Double-Edge
    • Round 5: Pound

Contest Moveset 2
Fire Punch [Beauty]
Ice Punch [Beauty]
Flash [Beauty]
Sunny Day[Beauty]

For the Beauty Contest, take advantage of the Fire Punch/Ice Punch combo for many Beauty Appeal Points. Flash is there to control the crowd’s excitement just to calculate the moment you should use Sunny Day and overwhelm them all! Simply wait for the moment the gauge has three hearts, use Flash, increasing the it by one and hope that you will appeal first by using Sunny Day. Don’t forget using Fire Punch after Sunny Day since that’s another combo!

More precisely

  • Appeal time:
    • Round 1: Fire Punch/Ice Punch
    • Round 2: Ice Punch/Fire Punch or Flash
    • Round 3: Fire Punch/Ice Punch or Sunny Day/Flash
    • Round 4: Ice Punch/Fire Punch or Flash/Sunny Day
    • Round 5: Fire Punch/Ice Punch or Sunny Day

Item Held

Contest Moveset 3
Thunder Punch [Cool]
Fire Punch/Ice Punch [Beauty]
Shock Wave [Cool]
Hyper Beam [Cool]

For the Cool Contest, take advantage of the cool type punch, Thunder Punch with one of the other two. Shock Wave will pay out even more when your Pokémon will be first to appeal, while Hyper Beam is the ideal finishing move for this contest.

More precisely

  • If you appeal 1st:
    • Round 1: Shock Wave
    • Round 2: Thunder Punch
    • Round 3: Fire Punch/Ice Punch
    • Round 4: Thunder Punch
    • Round 5: Hyper Beam

Contest Moveset 4
Charm [Cute]
Sweet Kiss [Cute]
Rest [Cute]
Snore [Cute]

For the Cute Contest, use the Charm/Sweet Kiss or Charm/Rest combo to start with. Hopefully you’ll be able to inflict a vast amount of Jam Points and make others nervous till the five rounds end. Do not forget to use Snore right after Rest. Follow the two different tactics I present you below.

More precisely

  • Appeal time:
    • Round 1: Charm
    • Round 2: Rest or Sweet Kiss
    • Round 3: Snore or Charm
    • Round 4: Charm or Rest
    • Round 5: Sweet Kiss or Snore

Item Held
Green Scarf
Contest Moveset 5
Hidden Power [Smart]
Disable [Smart]
Faint Attack [Smart]
Fake Tears [Smart]

For the Smart Contest, Hidden Power is the ideal move since it makes an average appeal but can be used each turn without bothering the judge. Disable should be used to make others nervous but if you are going for those Appeal Points, prefer Hidden Power instead. Faint Attack is meant to be used first and Fake Tears when you appear last.

More precisely

  • If you appeal 1st:
    • Round 1: Faint Attack
    • Round 2: Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 3: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 4: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 5: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
  • If you appeal 2nd or 3rd:
    • Round 1: Hidden Power or Disable
    • Round 2: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 3: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 4: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 5: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
  • If you appeal 4th:
    • Round 1: Fake Tears
    • Round 2: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 3: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 4: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
    • Round 5: Faint Attack (if you appeal first)/Hidden Power/Disable or Fake Tears (if you appeal last)
