Special Sweeper Tangela (Retro)
Tangela is an outstanding Special Sweeper. It's goal is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type. Focus Sash helps protect Tangela from being one-shotted and allowing it to atleast use a crucial move when brought out.
♦ Solar Beam is a special STAB-boosted 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2. no charge in sunlight).
♦ Confusion is a special 50-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to confuse the target).
♦ Thief is a special 40-base power Dark-type move (if your Tangela has no item, it steals the target's).
♦ Synthesis is a status move (heals your Tangela by a weather-dependent amount).
