Pokémon GO Shroomish is a pure grass type Pokémon that will evolve into a Pokémon GO Breloom with his grass fighting type. Breloom is the first of its kind to have such type.
Breloom will have a hard time making its way up the defenders tier list in Pokémon GO, mostly because of its low DEF (153) and rather low STA (120).
On the other hand, Breloom has very strong attack! Breloom’s ATK stat in Pokémon GO (241) mandates it’s glass cannon, offensive, nature.
Shroomish made got its own episode on the 283rd episode of Pokémon series (Advanced Generation: Episode 9) titled, “Taming of the Shroomish”. Breloom made its television debut on the 6th Pokémon movie “Pokémon: Jirachi: Wish Maker”. Breloom also had a major role on the 356rd episode of Pokémon series (Advanced Generation: Episode 82) titled, “A Shroomish Skirmish”.
Breloom in the Pokémon GO metagame
Breloom is going to land as a strong mid tier attacker in Pokémon GO. With its ATK (241) and being a fighting type, it will do well taking down most of the normal type defenders. In offense, Breloom will shine only with some dodge magic.
Combining that with Breloom’s advantage over water types and Breloom is looking even better! The only problem is that Breloom is very comparable with Sceptile and Sceptile stats are much more balanced.
However, with it’s low STA (120), it’s questionable if Breloom will be a strong contender in defense.
In other Pokémon games, Breloom is an awesome attacker because it can cause temporary stat alterations and even conditions like Sleep (SLP), and Paralysis (PAR), then a barrage of attack. However, in Pokémon GO it has nothing similar to offer.

Breloom’s high ATK in Pokémon GO will be nothing if it’s not paired with some good moves. Luckily, Breloom moves are very interesting in Pokémon GO.
