"Jigglypuff (Purin / プリン) is known as the Balloon Pokémon. Jigglypuff spelled backwards is ffupylggij.

Jigglypuff is shaped like a round ball, with pink skin, large blue or green eyes, catlike ears, and a tuft of fur on its forehead. Its skin is rubbery and stretchy. It can inflate its body like a balloon (usually when it becomes angry; this is accompanied by a distinctive "honk" sound), or flatten its body. An exact limit to the size it can grow to in this manner is unknown.

Jigglypuff are characterized by putting their enemies to sleep by singing a lullaby. Before beginning to sing, they mesmerize the opponent with their soft, glowing eyes, and if they inflate themselves, they can sing for longer periods of time. They can easily adjust the wavelength of their voices to that of the brain waves of a sleeping being, allowing for their pleasing melody to put its audience to sleep. They sing without pausing to take a breath, so if the opponent is resistant to sleeping, they potentially run out of air.

In the Pokémon anime series, Jigglypuff is a recurring character who aspires to be a great singer after the inspiration of Ash and company. Unfortunately, every potential audience falls asleep before the song finishes. Jigglypuff does not usually choose an appropriate time to sing and has been a hazard many times. Because of this, Ash and his companions often find themselves running away from Jigglypuff. It keeps a black marker, its "microphone," and uses it to scribble on anyone who dares to fall asleep while it's performing."

Here at Game On!, we have something of a tradition: if you're going to play here regularly and be "one of the guys", then you're likely to end up with a Pokemon name. When you join "Team Pokemon", whichever Pokemon you choose to identify with is, naturally, entirely up to you (so long as it's not already taken).

One of my best friends is Magikarp, and my ex-lovely ladyfriend made a most delightful Psyduck.

I - the loquacious, drama queen, talks-at-people-whether-they-care-or-not, loves-the-spotlight-and-stage, lullaby-singing, lethargy-inducing, moody, pink grumpkus - am, of course, Jigglypuff.

My battle cry of "PUFF~" will forever echo through these halls.

-Who He Be-

(This wonderful image brought to you by Beyamor.)

Name: Damon R. Nagy

a.k.a.: Sentry, Jigglypuff, Jam

Damon is a twenty-something year-old manthing what currently "manages" an independently-owned games shoppe ("Game On!") in Denver, CO. He's entertained delusions of intelligence and relevance his entire life, and hopes to someday be recognized as a pundit in several fields, though his insatiable, insufferable ego will likely forever demand more. As it stands, the store he works at cannot afford to pay him, and as such his current gaming experiences are limited to those used titles that come through the store itself, or those rare occasions when his friends should happen to purchase something that he'd also like to play.

This fellow is arrogant, egocentric, narcissistic, and riddled with insecurities, anxieties, and contradictions, but occasionally - just every so often - manages to be a pretty okay, kinda' nice guy. A bit off-putting at first, but if you give him a chance he might just grow on you.

Also, he's very pleased to meet you.
