    Default my tangrowth rate plz

    Tangrowth @ Big Root/Heat Rock
    Ability: leaf guard
    Nature: sassy
    EV HP: 252
    EV Def: 44
    EV spD: 208
    Moveset:
    Leech seed/sleep powder/toxic (sleep powder recommend)
    Giga drain / solarbeam
    Sunny day
    Ancient-power
    This setup is used as a physical wall in-between ( and to possibly stop special water sweepers such as choice spec starmie’s who have chosen hydro pump or even better thunder with a spD of 172 to 204 it will be able to withstand either pretty easy to withstand it, now from here if they are using a rain dance team go for the sunny day to weaken hydro pump and to make thunder have more of a chance missing, now there is a chance that they can switch into with Beartic switch can be a problem but instead of using sunny day you can use sleep powder and hopefully get the Beartic or the special water sweeper to sleep and then you can use Sunny Day and solarbeam/Giga drain or Ancient-power
    Using sunny activates its ability leaf guard to not get any status conditions
    Due to Ancient-power being great coverage for (flying, ice, fire, bug) if you know you can force a switch out with Tangrowth to any of the following types always go for the sleep powder and then ancient-power
    And another advantage of using Ancient-power is that it has 10% of powering up all your stats by 1 level
    The only bad side is speed to this is dragon tail to force a switch out to a random pokemon in your party


    i made it up last night
    will it be a good candidate for my team?

    First of all, Any sun-making tangrowth does is easily outdone by whimsicott/venusaur.
    secondly, Ancient-Power? Really?

    probability UU tier despite bearic is not in that tier
    and yeah ancient power because of its great coverage for grass it beats:
    fire
    ice
    bug
    flying
    and ancientpower should only be use as coverage
    and the thing is venusaur cannot learn ancient power for coverage and its not mean't to outdo them and leaf guard stops status conditions and sleep powder will not work and using sleep powder itself will give it the upper hand -__- and then giving it a chance to switch to more of an attacking pokemon

    Rock slide, earthquake and even hidden power fire are all better options than ancient power.

    This set really isn't viable in UU. Tangrowth struggles with covering a great deal of threats and also struggles to even set up in the first place.
