Tangela and Tangrowth are grass-type Pokémon. Tangela can be found after getting the National Pokédex. Its location is the Swampy Cave and Bogsunk Cave in the Grand Underground. If you want a Tangela before this point, you will need to trade for it.

Tangrowth has very scores in the HP, attack, defense, and special attack stats meaning it can fit a variety of roles. If you aren't interested in adding this Pokémon to your team, you will need it to complete your Pokédex.
