Pokemon Yellow

Part 180: POKEDEX #114: Tangela

HP:65 Atk:55 Def:115 Spd:60 Spc:100 Total:395

It's a strange Pokemon that can't evolve. But unlike a lot of those gimmick Pokemon, this one's pretty good. It's very defensive, which translates to good Special, which is good. Of course it mucks it all up with a terrible movepool, where your best option is Solarbeam and Normal moves. At least in Yellow it gets a better STAB option then Absorb: Vine Whip.

Yeah... this thing ain't too great, all things considered. But let me distract you with those three digit stats! Then realize all it has is an on average 60BP move as its best attacking option. Sigh.
