Tangrowth is one of the better Grass-type Pokémon in Pokémon Go. You normally see this in the battle league and raids as a fairly common choice. If you use it in PvP, you can see it mainly in the Ultra or Master League. It is one of the larger Pokémon and has excellent attacks that can spam. But with a little more damage, it can do even more, and with shadow Tangrowth, you can do even more damage by strengthening the damage it receives as a shadow Pokémon.
Tangrowth is a Grass type Pokémon. It will be weak against Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice and Poison movements, but is resistant to Water, Ground, Grass and Electric. Tangrowth’s biggest weakness is that it has more weaknesses than resistance, so you need to be careful when using it, which doubles with the shadow Pokémon.
These are all moves that Tangrowth can learn.
- Attack (Bug type) – 6 damage and 4 energy per wheel (2 damage per wheel) – 3 wheels
- Vine Whip (Grass-type) – 5 damage and 4 energy per move (2.5 damage per move) – 2 turns
- Ancient Power (rock type) – 45 damage and 45 energy (10% chance to increase attacker and defense by two lines)
- Power Whip (Grass-type) – 90 damage and 50 energy
- Rock Slide (Rock-type) – damage 75 and energy 45
- Sludge Bomb (Poison-type) – 80 damage and 50 energy
- Solar beam (grass) – damage 150 and energy 80
Shadow Tangrowth doesn’t have too many options for its fast movement, but the charged movements offer great variety depending on how you want to use it. When it comes to fast movement, you will always want to go with a wine whip. Shadow Tangrowth not only gets the STAB modifier for it, but it’s also a faster attack that generates more energy for Shadow Tangrowth to take advantage of its charged moves.
There are several factors to consider when it comes to the possibility of billing. The best-charged move of all options will be the power whip. It’s a Grass-type move, similar to a vine whip, and Tangrowth gets a STAB modifier for it, dealing more damage against any enemy. This is the attack you always want in your back pocket. If you plan to use Shadow Tangrowth is a spammer who attacks the shield of your enemies or completes them in the final option one on one, the second charged move you want to use will be a rock slide. It’s a powerful and useful charged movement that can easily protect the shadowy Tangrowth from several Pokémon.
Alternatively, you can consider using a solar beam instead of whipping and maintaining a slip. While the sun’s rays require a huge amount of energy, it can be cut by various Pokémon, and thanks to the increased attack power of Shadow Tangrowth, it is even more deadly.
Shadow Tangrowth can be exceptionally deadly based on the type of move set you teach it. Unfortunately, it can use several types of Pokémon, so you need to keep this in mind when using it in Pokémon battles.
The best move for Shadow Tangrowth will be a quick vine whip, followed by a charged move, a powerful whip and a slide.
