Have you ever wonder why Tangrowth, despite having a very good ability (Regenerator) and excellent defensive stats is in the RU tier?

Well I found out that Tangrowth doesnt have a defensive typing needed for UU. The top physical attackers in UU are: Heracross, Arcanine, Victini, Weavile, Darmanitan, Escavalier, Rhyperior, Kingdra and Flygon. All of these pokes pokemon except Kingdra, Flygon, Rhyperior have super effective STABs that can destroy Tangrowth.

However Rhyperior can hurt Tangrowth hard with megahorn, kingdra can be a special variant with ice beams or draco meteor and flygon can get around it with uturn. This proves that Tangrowth cannot switch into the listed physical threats and the reason why this poor thing has to be in RU.

eviolite tangela is faster, has more sp.def to support it and a whopping 540 def, as well as more speed, some like me think tangela is better altho not having leftovers it still has regenerator not to mention it can still live at least 1 hit from a scarf heracross i think, havent calced it but tangela is. better supporter tangrowth just has mmore sp.atk, especially alot more atk

Tangrowth/Tangela shouldnt even be used in UU at all. Banded heracross ohkos maxhp/maxdef tangrowth and does 83% to tangela. Victini, arcanine and darmanitan does around 60% with thier stab fire attacks. The definition of a wall is, switch in, take a hit and forces them out. Tangrowth/tangela cannot switch into any of those attacks, and obviously cannot force them out making it less effective of a physical wall.

There are pokemon that lurks in UU such as togekiss, chandelure, nidoking, yanmega, porygon-Z and rotom-H that completely destory tangrowth/tangela. As bulky as they look they are just dead fodders in UU.
