We've explained how trainers can evolve their Tangela into a Tangrowth in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Trainers may remember Tangela as one of the Generation I Pokemon that gained a new evolutionary form in Generation IV. Its new form, Tangrowth, didn't add any extra types or special moves—but it did give this Pokemon arms! Below, we've explained everything trainers need to know about Tangela, Tangrowth, and the strange way this Pokemon evolves.

Here's how to evolve Tangela into Tangrowth in Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

How to Evolve Tangela into Tangrowth

Trainers can evolve their Tangela into a Tangrowth after the Pokemon knows and is equipped with the move Ancient Power. Pokemon can change their moves at any time, so trainers should be able to both check and change the moves of any captured Tangela whenever they need.

Tangela learns Ancient Power at level 34 and masters it at level 45. We recommend checking any Tangela at level 34 or above to see if it already knows or has Ancient Power selected. If so, simply change its moves or adventure with the Pokemon until the game gives off the indication that the Pokemon is ready to evolve.

Tangela is also known as the "Vine" Pokemon due to its body structure made entirely of vines. No one has ever seen behind the web of foliage that makes up or covers its body. The vines never stop growing and can be broken off painlessly to be regrown by the next day. In some parts of the world, the vines are used as spices for food or as part of medicine poultices. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #095.

This Pokemon can be found in the Gapejaw Bog in the Crimson Mirelands or at Crossing Slope in the Cobalt Coastlands.

Tangrowth carries over many traits of its pre-evolved form, including the obscuring vines that have regenerative properties. Its arms are actually "vine bundles" that can be used to ensnare targets and bring them closer to the Pokemon. Its Hisuian PokeDex number is #096.
