Jigglypuff (Purin in Japanese version) is a character from the Pokémon franchise. Jigglypuff is a singing type of Pokémon. However, Jigglypuff is one particular member of its species who reappears in both the anime Pokémon and the video game franchise Super Smash Bros.
It has no distinctive name or owner and so it is referred to purely by its species' name, "Jigglypuff".
Jigglypuff, as with its pre-evolution Igglybuff and it's evolved form Wigglytuff, have a gender ratio of 1 male to 3 female. Its ratio is 25% male to 75% female, making it less likely to encounter male wild Jigglypuff and more likely to encounter females in the wild.
It is voiced by Mika Kanai in all its appearances in the Japanese original version, and by Rachael Lillis in the anime and the entire Super Smash Bros. series until Alola, Kanto!, where the latter passed her role Michele Knotz, who also voiced May.
Super Smash Bros. series
It makes people go to sleep while singing. It can also fly in the air. Jigglypuff also appeared in the Super Smash Bros. series as an unlockable character in all four games (excluding the Wii U version, where it became a starter fighter). Jigglypuff was first created as a character for Smash at the height of the anime's popularity and so just as the Pikachu in it has been collectively presumed to be Ash's Pikachu too is in Smash Bros. Jigglypuff is presumed to be the same feared recurring Jigglypuff from the anime, though there has never been an official confirmation of this other than Pikachu's connection only being to the handheld game.

Super Smash Bros. for 3DS/Super Smash Bros. for Wii U
Jigglypuff returns in both versions of Super Smash Bros. 4, in the 3DS version, she is a unlockable fighter by collecting 30 different equipment items or play 120 matches. In the Wii U version, she is initially unlocked from the start along with.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate
Jigglypuff returns in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate as one of the many unlockable fighters and one of the many characters that have killed by Galeem. In World of Light, she can be found by taking Sheik's route in the Light Realm by crossing a bridge or circling through a lake. She then will join the player's party after being awakened. In Classic Mode, she can be unlocked on the Kirby's unlock tree. In Smash, it takes exactly 2 hours and 20 minutes to unlock her, being the 15th character unlocked after Ike.
Jigglypuff is one particular member of its species that make several recurring appearances. This particular Jigglypuff found a small marker dropped by the humans that it mistakes for a microphone and uses to express itself and sing its heart out. Due to Jigglypuff's voices acting as sleeping inducing singles once they begin singing, the people Jigglypuff sings to always wind up falling asleep, Ash, Misty, Brock, and Pikachu all included as well as the series villains, Team Rocket. Infuriated that people fall asleep while it is singing its heart out, Jigglypuff would get even with its perceived critics by removing the cap from the marker and use it to draw all over the faces of those it considered rude enough to ignore its performance.
Throughout the anime Jigglypuff tries again and again to become a recognized performer only to have those around it fall asleep during its performances, affecting anyone from a crowd of people to a whole city. Jigglypuff became something of a feared creature as Ash and Team Rocket both gained a healthy fear for the thing whenever it showed up. Jigglypuff has inadvertently saved the day numerous times, putting thugs to sleep, wild Pokémon and even armies primed for attack, or just singing a few notes (too short and brief to send anyone to sleep; though ironically, it does break hypnosis). Though its songs also made the protagonists sleep the time spent coming-to always gave the heroes chances to regroup and overcome their foes.
Jigglypuff is a balloon Pokémon; for type, it is a Normal/Fairy type. It evolves from Igglybuff when it has a strong friendship with a Trainer, then into Wigglytuff when in contact with a Moon Stone.
