Welcome back, Trainers! In this installment of Generation Preparation, we'll take a look at the Vine Pokémon, Tangrowth. Let's get into it.
CATEGORY: Vine Pokémon
HEIGHT: 6' 07"
WEIGHT: 283.5 lbs.
MAX CP: 3110
Tangrowth is the evolved form of Tangela. We expect it to cost 50 Tangela Candy to evolve a Tangela into a Tangrowth.
PLACE IN THE META: The hype should be real for this Pokémon! Tangrowth is forecasted to be the best Grass-type in Pokémon GO, should it get the right moves. It's stats are very well-rounded, allowing it to deal a good amount of damage and survive attacks from powerful opponents.
Tangrowth is a pure Grass-type. This makes it weak to Fire-, Ice-, Poison-, Bug-, and Flying-type attacks; as well as resistant to Electric-, Grass-, Ground-, and Water-type attacks.
LIKELY MOVEPOOL: Out of the Fast Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Tangrowth:
Out of the Charged Moves we currently have in Pokémon GO, the following are the ones that seem most likely to be given to Tangrowth:
Should Niantic add any new moves, the following are good candidates for Tangrowth's movepool:
LOOKING AHEAD: Looking beyond Generation 4, Tangrowth gains no evolution, exclusive Z-Move, or Mega Evolution.
Thanks for reading, Trainers!
