For Tangrowth, which is stronger, Powerwhip or Energy Ball?

0 votes

Given that this is the start of the battle, Tangrowth's IV's, EV's, and Nature have no effect, and its opponent has equal Defensive stats.

Power Whip. Even though Tangrowth's Special Attack is slightly higher than its Attack, Power Whip's added power makes it do more damage. I calculated it on a Mew because it has equal defenses.

0SpAtk Tangrowth (+SAtk) Energy Ball vs 4HP/0SpDef Mew (Neutral): 30% - 35% (103 - 123 HP). Guaranteed 4HKO.

0Atk Tangrowth (+Atk) Power Whip vs 4HP/0Def Mew (Neutral): 41% - 49% (142 - 168 HP). Guaranteed 3HKO.
