You should be using 5222 with TLS, I believe.  However, I doubt this
is your problem, you'd get an SSL error if so.

With gmail, this absolutely means that either your username or
password is entered wrong.  Do you have 2-factor authentication turned
on?  If so, you will need to follow the Google instructions for adding
an "application specific password" for Pidgin.  If not, try deleting
the Pidgin account and recreating it, carefully typing both the user
name and password.
