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

 Pokémon Information
 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.
