Tropius

Pokémon GO Tropius

Pokémon GO Tropius is a grass and flying type Pokémon, with 1846 Max CP and also known as the “Fruit Pokémon”. Tropius is known to live in tropical jungles and we also expect him to be one of the Gen 3 regional exclusive Pokémon.

With ATK (136), DEF (165) and STA (198), Tropius is not a super exciting addition to the metagame, but we’re fine with that — Tropius is traditionally considered to be a weak Pokémon with limited use (in the core games).

Tropius in Pokémon GO

Although Tropius doesn’t have stellar stats, we expect him to have some usage. With its unusual typing, Tropius can take on both water and grass opponents, given an appropriate moveset.

Traditionally, Tropius was never a “good” competitive Pokémon, so we don’t expect him to be a strong addition in GO either. We do believe Tropius will be one of the two regional exclusives in Gen III, given the following quote from the core games:

“Children of the southern tropics eat as snacks the fruit that grows in bunches around the neck of Tropius. This Pokémon flies by flapping the leaves on its back as if they were wings.”

Pokémon GO Tropius Moves

We expect the following moves to be a part of Tropius move pool:

  • Aerial Ace flying
  • Dragon Pulse dragon
  • Earthquake ground
  • Energy Ball grass
  • Giga Drain grass
  • Gust flying
  • Leaf Blade grass
  • Outrage dragon
  • Razor Leaf grass
  • Rock Smash fighting
  • Solar Beam grass
  • Twister dragon

Here are some moves that might be added to Tropius’ move pool:

  • Giga Impact normal
  • Leaf Storm grass
