Is Tangrowth Viable in OU?

0 votes

I've grown very fond of tangrowth after beating Jojo's Kyurem B in 1 v 1, and I want to use it in OU because I dont really like the OU grass types. Do I need to give my set?

Yes it is. It'd make a nice Chlorophyll sweeper, since it has decent bulk but abysmal speed, so it can abuse Drought and sweep up.

Tangrowth @ Life Orb
Ability; Chlorophyll
EVs: 252 Sp. Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Timid
- Focus Blast
- Solarbeam/ Giga Drain
- Growth
- Sleep Powder

OR

Ability: Chlorophyll
EVs: 252 Atk, 252 Speed, 4 HP
Nature: Jolly/ Naive
- Growth
- Earthquake
- Power Whip
- HP Ice/ HP Fire/ Sleep Powder

As a regenerator user though, I would advice Slowbro. Better recovery move and larger movepool means it's more suited to OU.

I don't think it'd be a good idea, especially with so many sun teams in OU. Chlorophyll sweeper would be better.
