Tangrowth (モジャンボ) is the 182nd Pokémon in the Sinnoh Pokédex. It is a Grass-Type, and is known as the Vine Pokémon.

Both of Tangrowth's primary Abilities activate during periods of strong sunlight; Chlorophyll will double its Speed, while Leaf Guard protects it from becoming afflicted with a Status Condition. A third Ability is available to Tangrowth from the Dream World, the Regenerator Ability. This Ability restores up to one-third of its Maximum HP when it is switched out of battle.

Tangela can evolve into Tangrowth if it Levels Up while the move Ancientpower is in its moveset.

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

[edit] Biology

[edit] Physiology

Tangrowth is a Pokémon that reaches up to 6-foot in height. It has blue vines that wrap around its black body, leaving a part of it's face exposed. It has small stumpy feet which are black and tipped with red. Tangrowth has a pair of blue arms with three fingers that are also tipped with red, like it's feet. These two arms actually have no bones and cannot respond to pain, so the arms can break off but Tangrowth won't be affected as they can grow back.

[edit] Gender Differences

The male Tangrowth has red tipped fingers while the female's fingers are completely red.

[edit] Game Information

Tangrowth can only be obtained by evolving a Tangela in Generation IV. Tangrowth appear in the wild in Generation V, as they can be found at Route 13 and Outside Giant Chasm in Black, White, Black 2 and White 2.

Tangrowth appear in the Ranger School in Pokémon Ranger: Shadows of Almia, but the Field Assist Break Lv. 2 is required to find it, and it is also the first Boss Pokémon of the game. In Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs, Tangrowth appears in the 3F Observation Room on the Right within the Oblivia Region Sky Fortress in the Present, and in the Forest Temple mission "A Pokémon Forest in the Way" in the past by finishing the mission with an S Rank.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

A Wild Tangrowth appears in the episode Promoting Healthy Tangrowth, which was using an Energy-Draining move to try and restore a very large tree in that particular forest. After draining the energy of a Pokémon, it would leave a Berry for said Pokémon; smaller Pokémon would receive an Oran Berry whilst larger Pokémon would be given a Sitrus Berry.

[edit] Movies

A trainer named Tomo would use a Tangrowth in the film Zoroark: Master of Illusions. Wild Tangrowth appears in the film The Rise of Darkrai.

[edit] Manga

Tangrowth's Manga Information is unknown as of writing.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] Competitive Battling

Tangrowth is a viable option in the Rarely-Utilized, Under-Utilized and Over-Utilized Tiers of Competitive Battling. Along with a High Defense that is third amongst Grass-Types behind Leafeon and Ferrothorn, Tangrowth also has high HP, Attack and Special Attack Statistics, along with a versatile movepool that can include strategies based on a Physical Tank, Supporter or Attacker. Its Speed is a major let-down, as its Base Speed reaches 100 whilst the Chlorophyll Ability is active, and that isn't going to outrun everyone, plus its Physical Wall can be broken down with Special Attacks.
