Cool that you got that Tangrowth. I've never actually used one, but I know they're really good based on their stats and movepool.
Speaking of storms, my area had a really nasty thunderstorm with really strong wind a couple days ago. There was a some damage around town, especially fallen trees. And with the timezone thing, I'm EST, so it does cover quite a bit.
