Best moves for Tangrowth in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

What are the best moves for this Vine Pokémon?

Tangrowth is an extremely powerful Pokémon in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. It is a solely Grass-type Pokémon and evolves from Tangela (after learning Ancient Power). Tangrowth has a super high special attack and can deal massive damage to opponents in battle.

Because Tangrowth is Grass-type, many of the Pokémon's most powerful moves will also be Grass-type in order to benefit from S.T.A.B. (Same Type Attack Bonus). This will allow moves to do increased damage in battle if they match the typing of the Pokémon using them. Tangrowth's most powerful moves are Energy Ball, Sludge Bomb, Ancient Power, and Acid Spray.
