"Tangela's vines snap off easily if they are grabbed. This happens without pain, allowing it to make a quick getaway. The lost vines are replaced by newly grown vines the very next day."
Yet another case of Pokemon where you can't help but ask, "What the heck am I looking at?" Tangela is a body of some sort that is covered by vines, and it's not known how it is it can use the vines like it does, thus adding the mystery of how it exists. Tangel a was also one of the Gen I Pokemon to get an evolution in Unova.
Tangela's Basic Attack is Vine Whip, while its Special Attacks are Sludge Bomb and Solar Beam.
