PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Charm hits hard with STAB and is the best choice for offense. 

  • Pound has STAB and is great in itself, but lacks type coverage.

  • Feint Attack can hit Psychic and Ghost-types super effectively.

  • Play Rough and Dazzling Gleam perform similarly on offense.

  • Hyper Beam does good neutral damage, but Wigglytuff’s Fairy charge moves are better.
  • Ice Beam can be useful in very niche situations, but lacks STAB. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Charm is the superior option for defense, and hits hard with STAB. 

  • Feint Attack is somewhat superior to Pound on defense.

  • Play Rough excels due to high power and an early damage window.

  • Dazzling Gleam is a stronger 2-bar move, though it’s easy to dodge.

  • Hyper Beam is very telegraphed and Wigglytuff’s bulk is actually quite bad for using it.
  • Ice Beam has an early damage window and good coverage but lacks STAB. 

PVE Overview

In days of yore (aka 2016), Wigglytuff was the surprise winner of Niantic’s stat conversion formula, with decent offensive stats relative to all other species that was bolstered by massive HP.

2016 feels like a long time ago. Wigglytuff is now bad. Its offense is decidedly trash, and while players still hype its huge HP, Wigglytuff’s double digit Def renders it about as frail as everything else. Its only positive attribute is a low max CP that lets it demotivate in gyms more slowly.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Charm + Play Rough and Ice Beam

Finally! Wigglytuff finally gets Charm which significantly increases its performance in PvP, not to mention benefiting from STAB. 

Play Rough takes advantage of STAB to deal a good amount of damage to even some neutral opponents. Ice Beam is a welcome addition to Wigglytuff and is preferable for its coverage against many common meta picks. Dazzling Gleam performs very similarly to Play Rough and does have a slightly higher DPE value, but is less preferable due to its higher energy cost. Hyper Beam costs too much energy to be optimal, though it's possible to surprise some opponents. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 3 / 5 

Wigglytuff was a popular gym defender during the early days of gym defense thanks to its good bulk and interesting Fairy/Normal typing. The move rebalance on July 9, 2019 gave Wigglytuff the buff it needed to move up in the ranks of PvP thanks to Charm. While poor energy gains still prevent Wigglytuff from applying significant shield pressure, the raw damage from STAB Charm combined with Wigglytuff's good bulk is often enough to beat down most opponents who don't resist Fairy-type attacks. Overall a solid option as a part Fairy-type, though the abundance of Steel-types in the meta makes it more difficult to use. 

Ultra League: 3.5 / 5

Wigglytuff has a max CP of 1926 which is somewhat lackluster for Ultra League. While it has an unimpressive win ratio overall, one major perk of Wigglytuff is that its typing and movesets allow it to easily counter the ubiquitous Giratina, even in some disadvantageous shield situations. Because of how dominant Giratina is in Ultra League, Wigglytuff's wins against it could possibly make it an decent option for this league, but losing to most other opponents makes Wigglytuff's use more of a niche. The addition of Charm makes hardwalling Giratina much easier, and additional wins against various other meta Pokemon in this league helps bring up Wigglytuff's ratings even more. 

Master League: 1 / 5

Wigglytuff doesn't have the stats needed for Master League. However, the recent addition of Charm gives Wigglytuff the ability to completely wall Giratina-O in all shielding scenarios, while also beating Tyranitar if given 1 shield. A long list of losses against most other picks makes Wigglytuff more of a niche though.
