Tangela is a Grass-type Pokémon from the Kanto region. It evolves into Tangrowth when fed 100 candies and given a Sinnoh Stone.

Pokédex description

Vine Pokémon
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.
