Wobbuffet in Brawl

Wobbuffet in Brawl

In Super Smash Bros. Melee and its successor, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wobbuffet appeared as a Pokéball Pokémon. In the games, Wobbuffet would use the move Counter to attack players. It would rock back and fourth and do so more violently if the player attacked it or threw an item at it. When the player touches Wobbuffet before attacking it, it'll still cause knockback, though the player won't take any damage.

Interestingly, Wobbuffet is the only Pokémon not classified as Legendary to appear in the event Legendary Pokémon in Melee. Some have speculated as to why this is. One opinion is that it surprises players to expect to find a Legendary Pokémon. Another is that Wobbuffet can prove quite useful, so while it doesn't make since why he appears, it's appreciated nonetheless.

Trophy descriptions

Super Smash Bros. Melee

"A Patient Pokémon, Wobbuffet lives in darkness to hide its mismatched black tail. Even for a stoic Pokémon, this creature is a testament to self-control; it will not actively attack an opponent. Its Counter and Mirror Coat moves are solely used for reflecting attacks directly back at its antagonist"

Super Smash Bros. Brawl

"A Patient Pokémon. A nocturnal, cave-dwelling creature, Wobbuffet is calm and collected, but it will fight back viciously if its black tail is attacked--this hints at something secretive about its tail. If Wobbuffet is put into battle, the opponent cannot run away or switch. Females have lipsticklike markings around their mouths."

In the anime

Jessie obtains one accidentally in Episdeo 146, Tricks of the Trade. It randomly jumps out of its Poké Ball regularly. During the Best Wishes seasons, Wobbufet was left at Team Rocket Headquarters due to not being native to the region. The blue blob has stuck with the team since the Best Wishes finale.
