Tangrowth (Japanese: モジャンボ Mojumbo) is a Template:Type2 Pokémon.

It evolves from Tangela via level-up while knowing AncientPower.

Biology

Physiology

Tangrowth is a 6-foot-tall Pokémon with a black body wrapped in blue vines. Its stubby black feet are tipped with red. Tangrowth has grown a pair of blue arms that have three fingers that are tipped with red. Tangrowth's arms are boneless and are unable to respond to pain, meaning that the arms can break off and Tangrowth wouldn't mind if the situation actually did occur. A pair of saucer-like eyes peek out from beneath the tangled mess of vines.

Gender differences

A female Tangrowth's fingers are completely red while a male's fingers only have red tips.

Special abilities

Much like Tangela, Tangrowth can Template:M2 and Template:M2 its foes with its vines.

Behavior

Tangrowth are quite unintelligent and slow, but also very friendly.

Habitat

Tangrowth live in or near jungles with its pre-evolution Tangela and other Grass-types.

Trivia

Origin

Tangrowth may be based off of an exaggerated concept of a shaggy caveman.

Name origin

Tangrowth's name is derived from tangle and growth.

Mojumbo's name comes from もじゃもじゃ mojyamojya, which means shaggy or unkempt. It is also possible that the "jumbo" part of its name refers that it is roughly twice the size of Tangela.

In other languages

  • German: Tangoloss - From Seetang (seaweed) and Koloss (colossus).
  • French: Bouldeneu - From boule de nœuds (knot ball).
  • Korean: 덩쿠림보 Deongkurimbo
