Biology

Physiology

Vigoroth is white with a red flame shaped part on its forehead. Vigoroth have sharp claws.

Behavior

Vigoroth cannot keep still because of its extremely fast heartbeat. This causes much aggression and speed, unlike the Pokémon that evolves into it, Slakoth.

Habitat

Vigoroth live in forests. It appears to also be drawn towards colder climates as the Mystery Dungeon series places it in areas covered in ice.

Diet

Main article: Pokémon food

In the anime

Norman's Vigoroth appeared several times in the anime, the first being in There's no Place Like Hoenn. It also appeared in Love, Petalburg Style and in Balance of Power where it was used in a gym battle against Ash. It defeated Ash's Torkoal due to its speed but the match against Pikachu ended in a draw due to it being paralyzed by Pikachu.

In The Garden of Eatin', a Snorlax was causing trouble for a man named Marcel by eating the bananas in his Slakoth Banana Garden. No one was able to stop it when one of the Slakoth in the garden evolved into Vigoroth and defeated Snorlax allowing Marcel to capture it.

Ruby Vigoroth is always itching and agitated to go on a wild rampage. It simply can't tolerate sitting still for even a minute. This Pokémon's stress level rises if it can't be moving constantly.
Sapphire Vigoroth is simply incapable of remaining still. Even when it tries to sleep, the blood in its veins grows agitated, compelling this Pokémon to run wild throughout the jungle before it can settle down.
Emerald It can't keep still because its blood boils with energy. It runs through the fields and mountains all day to calm itself. If it doesn't, it can't sleep at night.
FireRed It is always hungry because it won't stop rampaging. Even while it is eating, it can't keep still.
LeafGreen It is always hungry because it won't stop rampaging. Even while it is eating, it can't keep still.
