Card text

Power Whip
Choose 1 of your opponent's Pokémon. This attack does 10 damage for each basic Energy card attached to Tangrowth to that Pokémon. (Don't apply Weakness and Resistance for Benched Pokémon.)
Stick and Absorb
Remove 3 damage counters from Tangrowth. The Defending Pokémon can't retreat during your opponent's next turn.

Pokédex data

Tangrowth - Vine Pokémon
No. Height Weight
465 6'07" (2.0 m) 283.5 lbs. (128.6 kg)
Pokédex entry
It ensnares prey by extending arms made of vines. Losing arms to predators does not trouble it.
しょくぶつの ツルで できた うでを のばして えものを からめとる。 うでを たべられても へっちゃら。


The Power Whip attack was later errata'd so that the attack counted the amount of Energy provided by basic Energy cards instead of simply basic Energy cards. An effect that would allow a basic Energy card to provide more than 1 Energy would now allow the effect to count the altered number.


Power Whip is a move in the Pokémon games that Tangrowth can learn. Stick and Absorb is similar to Absorb, which Tangrowth can also learn. This card's Pokédex entry comes from Pokémon Diamond and Pearl.
