Vigoroth (Japanese: ヤルキモノ Yarukimono) is a Normal-type Pokémon introduced in Generation III.

It evolves from Slakoth starting at level 18 and evolves into Slaking starting at level 36.

Biology

Vigoroth is a white, sloth-like, bipedal Pokémon with a teardrop-shaped tuft of red fur on its forehead. It has stubby ears, two small, triangular teeth in each jaw, a brown lower jaw, and large eyes encircled by brown rings. There are two stripes on its back, which are also brown. Its arms are long, and its hands and feet have two sharp black claws. The undersides of its hands and feet have circular red pads, and its rear also has a baboon-like patch of red. The fur on its chest, tail, and sides of its maw are shaggy.

Vigoroth’s heart beats at a tenfold tempo, and it cannot sit still for even a minute. Attempting to stand still or sleep raises its stress level and agitates its blood. It likes to go berserk by spinning its arms to destroy anything in its path. It runs wild through the jungle. Due to its rampages, it is always hungry.

In the anime

In the main series

Vigoroth in the anime

Major appearances

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 because it was paralyzed by Pikachu's Static Ability.

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 until one of the Slakoth in the garden evolved into Vigoroth and defeated Snorlax allowing Marcel to capture it.

Minor appearances

A Vigoroth appeared in The Journalist from Another Region!.

Several Vigoroth appeared in Zoroark: Master of Illusions, pursuing Zorua until they were driven away by Ash, Dawn, Brock, and their Pokémon, Infernape and Mamoswine.

Pokédex entries

Episode Pokémon Source Entry
AG003 Vigoroth Ash's Pokédex Vigoroth, the Wild Monkey Pokémon. Vigoroth is only comfortable going berserk. Will destroy anything in its path by spinning both arms, and goes more berserk when done.
This concludes the entries from the Advanced Generation series.

In Pokémon Generations

A wild Vigoroth appeared near the Weather Institute in The Adventure.

A wild Vigoroth appeared in The Cavern, where it was running away from a storm which a Primal Kyogre was creating.

In the manga

In the Pokémon Adventures manga

Like in the games, a Vigoroth debuts in Nixing Nuzleaf under the possession of the Petalburg Gym Leader Norman, who uses it as one of his most valued fighters. Its battling method mainly makes usage of its adroit speed, with which it often shoots the enemy's attacks back at them.
