Below you'll find a more detailed table containing Koffing's calculated stats, which are the stats that you actually see displayed in game. These are affected by a variety of things, such as level, Effort Values (EVs), Individual Values (IVs), and Koffing's Nature.

By default, the stats you see in the table below show four different possibilities, all assuming Koffing is level 100: its stats with 0 EVs, 252+ (max) EVs, 0 IVs, and 31 (max) IVs. Nature is not shown by default, so its maximum is 10% higher than shown here, and minium 10% lower.

Pokédex Entries for Koffing

Generation 8 Pokédex Entries

Sword
Its body is full of poisonous gas. It floats into garbage dumps, seeking out the fumes of raw, rotting trash.
Shield
It adores polluted air. Some claim that Koffing used to be more plentiful in the Galar region than they are now.

Generation 6 Pokédex Entries

X
Its thin, balloon-like body is inflated by horribly toxic gases. It reeks when it is nearby.
Y
Lighter-than-air gases in its body keep it aloft. The gases not only smell, they are also explosive.
Omega Ruby
If Koffing becomes agitated, it raises the toxicity of its internal gases and jets them out from all over its body. This Pokémon may also overinflate its round body, then explode.
Alpha Sapphire
Koffing embodies toxic substances. It mixes the toxins with raw garbage to set off a chemical reaction that results in a terribly powerful poison gas. The higher the temperature, the more gas is concocted by this Pokémon.

Generation 5 Pokédex Entries

Black White
Lighter-than-air gases in its body keep it aloft. The gases not only smell, they are also explosive.
Black 2 White 2
Toxic gas is held within its thin, balloon-shaped body, so it can cause massive explosions.

Generation 4 Pokédex Entries

Diamond Pearl Platinum
Lighter-than-air gases in its body keep it aloft. The gases not only smell, they are also explosive.
HeartGold
Its thin, filmy body is filled with gases that cause constant sniffles, coughs and teary eyes.
SoulSilver
The poisonous gases it contains are a little bit lighter than air, keeping it slightly airborne.

Generation 3 Pokédex Entries

Ruby
If KOFFING becomes agitated, it raises the toxicity of its internal gases and jets them out from all over its body. This POKéMON may also overinflate its round body, then explode.
Sapphire
KOFFING embodies toxic substances. It mixes the toxins with raw garbage to set off a chemical reaction that results in a terribly powerful poison gas. The higher the temperature, the more gas is concocted by this POKéMON.
Emerald
Getting up close to a KOFFING will give you a chance to observe, through its thin skin, the toxic gases swirling inside. It blows up at the slightest stimulation.
FireRed
Its thin, balloon-like body is inflated by horribly toxic gases. It reeks when it is nearby.
LeafGreen
Because it stores several kinds of toxic gases in its body, it is prone to exploding without warning.

Generation 2 Pokédex Entries

Gold
Its thin, filmy body is filled with gases that cause constant sniffles, coughs and teary eyes.
Silver
The poisonous gases it contains are a little bit lighter than air, keeping it slight­ly airborne.

Generation 1 Pokédex Entries

Red Blue
Because it stores several kinds of toxic gases in its body, it is prone to exploding without warning.
Yellow
In hot places, its internal gases could expand and explode without any warning. Be very careful!
