Players who haven’t played the game since the update would like to know what buffs Wigglytuff actually got that made the Pokemon so strong. Well, Wigglytuff received buffs that increase Wigglytuff’s defense, special defense, and most importantly, HP. When you put all these buffs together, what you get is a very strong Pokemon.

A hefty increase in HP and defense means no longer will Wigglytuff be taken out easily. Even though Wigglytuff is a support-type/defensive Pokemon that is not meant to be used to charge into enemy territory, a lot of players were doing that and getting killed. Now, even if they do that, there’s a good chance the increase in HP and defense will help them retreat before Wigglytuff loses all its health and dies.
