Amoonguss evolves from Foonguss at level 39. Foongus and Amoonguss are mushroom Pokémon and appear similar to Voltorb and Electrode but share more similarities with mushroom Pokémon.
Amoonguss is the 591st entry in the Pokedex and was introduced in 2011 in Pokémon: Black and White. It is the direct evolution of Pokedex entry #590, Foongus. Amoonguss, like Foonguss, focuses on its disguise, camouflage, and poison.
Amoonguss is a Pokemon who hides in plain sight, pretending to be what it is not. Amoonguss, like Foonguss, focuses on its disguise, camouflage, and poison. It lures prey close by, dancing and waving its arm caps, which resemble Poké Balls, in a swaying motion. When an Amoonguss successfully masquerades as a Poké Ball, it can achieve its goal and poison Pokemon trainers and other prey.
Amoonguss combines poison and grass types and can grow up to two feet tall. The Pokémon looks like a giant mushroom with a Pokéball design on its cap. Unlike its predecessor, Foongus, Amoonguss also has smaller Pokéball shields to cast spores.
The top of an Amoonguss has warts that emit poisonous spores. The main body is a thick, gray stalk with two arms covered in Pokeball-style shields. Amoonguss has a large, pink, beak-like mouth and a pair of eyes directly on the stem.
Amoonguss is a carnivorous Pokémon plant that hunts using camouflage and poison. In the wild, an Amoonguss will hide in tall grass so that only the top of its head is visible. Ideally, the mushroom Pokémon hides near an abandoned Pokeball to blend in. Amoonguss rarely moves and waits for prey or opponents.
Once a victim is near, a wild Amoonguss will use a spraying ability to spray poisonous spores on the prey. The spores will turn into other mushrooms if they aren’t wiped off quickly. Even if they’re cleaned, the spores cause poison damage.
Catching and Evolving
Although Amoonguss is a relatively passive Pokémon, it is a powerful fighter and a great combination type. Throughout Pokémon games, Amoonguss has been available to catch in the wild and evolve through Foongus.
While you can catch Amoonguss in every game post-Black and White game, it’s more likely that you will catch a Foongus and evolve it to become an Amoonguss. Both types live in tall grass near water and wait for their prey.
Amoonguss is the final evolution of Foongus, a grass, and poison-type Pokémon. Foongus was also introduced in Pokémon: Black and White. The small mushroom looks very similar to Amoonguss but only grows to eight inches and does not include the Pokeball-style shields on the arms.
After a while, or a certain amount of candies, depending on the game you play, Foongus can evolve into Amoonguss. Both forms debuted at the same time and have always coexisted. It’s possible to find evolved Amoonguss Pokémon in the wild instead of evolving a Foongus. As of now, there is no third evolution.
Moves and Abilities
Amoonguss uses its abilities to wait in tall grass and spray poison on its enemies and pray. In the anime, Amoonguss will only attack if it needs to eat, is attacked, or is trained to fight in Pokémon battles. However, Amoonguss is often a great Pokémon trainer’s team member in video games.
Amoonguss’ moves vary depending on the specific Pokémon’s strength and the game. Pokémon can learn multiple moves and take turns using them in some games. However, in others, Pokémon only learn a few moves. Most of Amoonguss’ moves are either normal-type, Poison type, or Grass-type moves.
All six mushroom Pokémon Foongus, Amoonguss, Paras, Parasect, Shroomish, and Breloom, share the move Spore and the ability Effect Spore in common.
