What Is the Pokemon Risa Wants?
For anyone who has been a fan of Pokemon since gen 1, the answer should be an easy one. There is only one Pokemon that has blue vines on his body and that is Tangela. Very strange looking Pokemon, many have wondered what is under the blue vines. As Risa will even say once you give it to her.
Where To Catch Tangela
Now that you know the Pokemon Risa is looking for in the quest The Fragrance of Nostalgic Herbs, the next question is where do actually find the Pokemon?
If you have been to the Crimson Mirelands, you may have already found one. If not, this is where you need to visit. The map below will show you the general area where you can find this Pokemon.
