Amoonguss (モロバレル) is the 97th Pokémon in the Unova Pokédex. It is a Grass/Poison Type, and it is known as the Mushroom Pokémon.

Amoonguss uses the Effect Spore Ability. With this Ability, the opponent has 10% chance of being afflicted with either Paralysis, Poisoning, or Sleep when using a physical attack that requires physical contact against this Pokémon. Amoonguss from the Dream World use the Regenerator Ability. With this Ability, up to one-third of this Pokémon's maximum HP is restored when switching out of battle.

Foongus evolve into Amoonguss at level 39.

Amoonguss is in the Grass Egg Group, and its Egg will take approximately 5,120 Steps to hatch. It takes Amoonguss One Million Experience Points to reach Level 100.


[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Like its pre-evolved form, Amoonguss is a mushroom-like Pokémon. Its cap looks quite similar to a large Poké Ball, and its grey, stem-like body sports stubby arms with the appearance of an object similar to a Poké Ball in each hand, a large pink mouth, and small eyes directly beneath the cap.

[edit] Gender differences

Amoonguss doesn't have any gender differences to differentiate between male and female.

[edit] Game Information

[edit] Original Games

Amoonguss can be found at Routes 10 and 11 in Black and White. On Route 10 only, it can appear to resemble an Item Ball, a tactic used by its pre-evolved form Foongus, along with Voltorb and Electrode in many of the past games. In Black 2 and White 2, Amoonguss appears at Routes 11, 22, 23, and at Hidden Hollows locations at Route 22, Pinwheel Forest, and Abundant Shrine.

[edit] Spin-off Games

Amoonguss can be found at the Arbor Area's Windmill Way in PokéPark 2: Wonders Beyond after befriending Foongus. To befriend it you'll have to defeat it in a battle, after which you'll be able to call it into battle.

[edit] Trading Card Game

Amoonguss is listed as an Uncommon Card in the Noble Victories set and as a Rare Card in the Next Destinies set.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Amoonguss can be used in the Never-Utilized, Rarely-Utilized, Under-Utilized, and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. The reason for this is because of its viable usage in the support role, especially with access to Spore and immunity to Toxic Spikes. It isn't very fast, and Pokémon that are immune to Sleep and Grass-Type moves will cause numerous problems for it.
