Special Sweeper Tangela (Retro)

Tangela is a spectacular Special Sweeper. It's primary goal is to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. Out of the original 151, Tangela was quite something to try to play with in the first generation meta. Prior to Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.

Solar Beam is a special STAB-boosted 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2).
Mega Drain is a special STAB-boosted 40-base power Grass-type move (Tangela recovers 50% of the damage dealt).
Growth is a status move (raises your Tangela's special by 1 stage).
Stun Spore is a status move (paralyzes the target).
Toxic is a status move (badly poisons the target).
