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

Major appearances

Vigoroth debuted in There's no Place Like Hoenn, under the ownership of Norman. In Love, Petalburg Style and Balance of Power, it was used in a Gym battle against Ash. It defeated 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 Marcel by eating the bananas in his Banana Slakoth Garden. No one was able to stop it until one of the Slakoth in the garden evolved into a Vigoroth and defeated Snorlax, allowing Marcel to catch it.

Trivia

Origin

Vigoroth seems to be based on sloths, exhibiting traits most similar to two-toed sloths and ground sloths in particular. It also exhibits some similarities to Old World monkeys, particularly to baboons who have bright red rumps, short tails, and are known for violent outbursts just like Vigoroth.

Name origin

Vigoroth may be a combination of vigor or vigorous and sloth.

Yarukimono may be a combination of やる気 yaruki (motivation) and 樹懶 namakemono (sloth).
