Vigoroth is one of three Pokemon in the Slakoth family in Pokemon GO. It is a Normal Pokemon that is vulnerable to Fighting moves and is resistant to Ghost-type Pokemon. It has a max CP of 1,968.
Vigoroth evolves from Slakoth (when fed 25 candies), the sloth-like Pokemon that is very popular among Pokemon GO trainers.
However, unlike a sloth, Vigoroth is constantly in motion and is known as the Wild Monkey Pokemon. It can't sit still for even a minute and gets really irritated if forced to stay indoors.
Vigoroth evolves into Slaking when fed 100 candies.
Vigoroth's Scratch and Body Slam are a winning combination in Pokemon GO battles
When choosing what moveset a Pokemon should deploy during battles, players should pay attention to the DPS (damage per second).
Vigoroth is known for its intense fighting spirit. Scratch and Body Slam make up its best moveset for combat in Gyms. It is also a winning combination when it comes to PVP battles, with the highest total DPS.
Players should keep in mind that the weather will play a huge part in how much damage per second Vigoroth can execute in Pokemon GO. Vigoroth is boosted by partly cloudy weather and will spawn in locations such as residential areas, universities, and parking lots.
It is also important to note that Vigoroth is vulnerable to Fighting moves. The best Pokemon to counter Vigoroth are as follows:
- Lucario with Counter and Aura Sphere.
- Conkeldurr with Cunter and Dynamic Punch.
- Breloom with Counter and Dynamic Punch.
