Talk:Jigglypuff

From the Super Mario Wiki, the Mario encyclopedia

How do we know she is female? HyperToad

All trophy descriptions use "it", so there's actually no confirmation about Jigglypuff's gender. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 08:53, 22 January 2008 (EST)

Jigglypuff in the pokemon games has a 25% for being male and a 75% for being female. So in sense Jigglypuff is female- FireFlower

Confirmed, Jigglypuff can be either male or female. It's a Pokémon

Then why does the article imply that the gender is specified (female)? And how is there "a character Jigglypuff" beneath the species? Was it ever stated that it is a specific Jigglypuff from some media? The gender problem also relates to Pikachu, Squirtle, Ivysaur, Charizard and Lucario, all these articles imply that the respective Pokémon are male, though they are always referred to by "it" in the games. --Grandy02 12:20, 16 December 2008 (EST)
The Pokemon anime has a prominent character Jigglypuff, just like Ash's Pikachu is the character Pikachu. Like the SSB Jigglypuff, this anime Jigglypuff puts other characters to sleep with its singing, and believes itself to be a star singer. This is referred to in one of SSBM's Event Matches. I believe the female pronouns are based on Jigglypuff's alternate costumes, which could be considered more "feminine." Now whether the SSB Jigglypuff is this character from the anime or female is up for debate, as I don't think there is any explicit reference made by the games. -- Son of Suns (talk)
I know this anime, the games are heavily influenced by it, but it is neither told that the Pokémon in Smash Bros. are from the anime nor that they have a specified gender, even if it's obvious that the anime counterparts were the inspirations for them. But even in the anime, the Pokémon are usually referred to as by gender-neutral pronouns. --Grandy02 13:13, 16 December 2008 (EST)
So the pronoun "it" will work, I was just pointing out why some people would think Jigglypuff is female. Feel free to make the changes. =) -- Son of Suns (talk)

Oh Oh!, click here: http://mx.youtube.com/watch?v=zB-tvxiY6bM her hats are totally girlish, she has a female voice, and her special moves consist of pounds, so "she" would be the proper pronoun Birdo Itadaki Street DS artwork.jpgBirdobeautiesBirdoHoops.PNG

GCN buttons[edit]

Why are there GameCube buttons to show the controls of how to perform the special moves? What if people who come here use the Wii Remote, Wii Remote + Nunchuk or the Classic Controller? Should the GCN buttons be changed to "the Attack button" or just a normal +Control Pad or something? Balloon Fighter pose SMM.png Mario JC
