Tangela (Japanese: モンジャラ Monjara) is a Grass-type Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

Appearance

Tangela is a Vine Pokémon. Its body is covered with blue vines covered with tiny hairs that grow to give the impression that Tangela is circular in shape. Two big eyes are all people see inside the vines and there are no visible arms. It also wears two red shoes that poke out of the vines.

Special abilities

Tangela can have the ability Chlorophyll or the ability Leaf Guard. Chlorophyll causes Tangela's Speed to rise when it is sunny. Leaf Guard grants Tangela immunity to status effects when it is sunny. It is shrouded in blue vines. No one has seen the face hidden behind this growth of vines.

Evolution

Tangela evolves into Tangrowth when it learns the move AncientPower at level 33. Or when taught the move AncientPower and then leveled up.

In the anime

When Ash battled Erika for the Rainbow Badge in Pokémon Scent-sation!, she used a Tangela.
