Show Suboptimal/Unranked Movesets

PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Vine Whip gets STAB and is the superior choice.
  • Infestation is not only suboptimal in performance, but doesn't share the same typing as Tangrowth's role. 
  • Power Whip is Tangrowth's best charge move with STAB, and is more efficient as a 2-bar move.
  • Solar Beam performs a bit worse on paper, but can be inconsistent in practice due to how slow it is. 
  • Sludge Bomb doesn't have much use on Tangrowth.
  • Ancient Power isn't meant for Tangrowth in PvE. 

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Infestation is generally better on defense due to its higher base power and coverage typing.
  • Vine Whip isn't that far behind since it has STAB. 
  • Ancient Power is the most valuable on defense for coverage, and for being a 3-bar move, but it's very easy to dodge.
  • Sludge Bomb is the best defensive charge move overall due to its early damage window. 
  • Power Whip is still ok on defense as it gets STAB, but doesn't cover against attackers with typing advantages. 
  • Solar Beam is way too slow for defense. 

PVE Overview

Tangrowth is an okay Grass Type attacker.. and not much more can be said about it. Use it if you really need Grass Types and don't have better options.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Vine Whip + Power Whip and Rock Slide or Sludge Bomb

Vine Whip is superior to Infestation stat-wise, and it gets STAB. 

Power Whip is a strong Grass-type move that costs a modest amount of energy to use. Rock Slide costs less energy, and provides very valuable coverage against four of Tangrowth's weaknesses. Sludge Bomb isn't as useful, but can nail Fairy-types and opposing Grass Pokemon. The nerf to Ancient Power following the April 2020 rebalance makes it no longer viable due to Rock Slide offering superior damage output. 

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 2 / 5

Tangrowth is a mono-Grass type Pokemon with average bulk. Unfortunately without access to Frenzy Plant or Leaf Blade, Tangrowth falls a bit behind the more popular Grass Pokemon in this league, especially when considering its very vulnerable typing. 

Ultra League: 2 / 5

For the reasons outlined above, in this league Tangrowth is somewhat held back in same ways that held it back in Great League. Its typing and movepool is also not as much of a priority when considering how dominant Giratina and Registeel are. 

Master League: 1 / 5

Tangrowth has a max CP of 3030, which isn't very impressive considering the numerous legendary Pokemon in Master League. While its typing can be useful in niche situations, the meta in this league doesn't favor Grass-type Pokemon as much as Great League does.
