Wigglytuff never sees play in pretty much any format, and that’s because it does not have much going for it except for its relatively high HP stat and decent move pool. However, if you’re a fan of Wigglytuff and want to do a little trolling, we don’t want to stand in your way. Instead of trying and failing to take advantage of Wigglytuff’s mediocre Special Attack, you might be able to make use of the pink puff as a wall.

The first thing to note about Wigglytuff is its advantageous typing. As a Normal and a Fairy type, it is not affected by Ghost and Dragon moves, which are two very offensively powerful types. Most teams will consist of a Ghost or a Dragon sweeper, and many times, teams will have both. Wigglytuff’s dual typing also means that its Fighting weakness is negated, making it only weak to Poison and Steel. And with Poison being one of the weakest offensive types in the game, Wigglytuff has a lot going for it defensively.
To take advantage of Wigglytuff’s typing, you’ll want to invest in defensive EVs and have a Bold nature. You will more than make up for the lack of Special Defense with Calm Mind. You’ll be able to tank most Pokemon in the game except for the occasional Poison and Steel sweeper.
As for Wigglytuff’s moves, we already mentioned Calm Mind — it will boost your Special Defense and Special Attack. You’ll be pretty weak, offensively, until you start to ramp up with Calm Mind, given that your opponent lets you set up. Rest will allow you to heal and remove any status ailments, and Sleep Talk will ensure that you don’t lose two turns while asleep. Your last move will be your one attack. I’m partial to Ice Beam because of potential frozen hax, but Flamethrower or Dazzling Gleam could be good choices here as well.
