Tropius is often thought to be the bottom of the bottom of NU. This is incredibly saddening, as it couldn't be further from the truth! Tropius is a very versatile pokemon, with many different tactics having the possibility to be great! Yes, maybe in order to use tropius effectively you need to be more experienced and to use your brain more... but then I bid you the question; isn't that what compeitive battling all about?
Tropius is the meaning of a sun abuser - he is made for it. He has 3 amazing abilities - solar power, chlorophyll and harvest - which when used turn into 3 completely different sets! Now, Tropius is almost always forgotten about. Chlorophyll is seemingly out-classed by Jumpluff, Sawsbuck and, if you want a more stally set, vileplume, and then you have harvest exeggutor seemingly out-classing harvest tropius, and even solar power is out-classed by Charizard! Well guess what? This couldn't be farther from the truth! Here is a thread for you guys to discuss tropius facts, sets and other things to do with tropius! (and don't forget to do the poll!)
To start off, I will post a set I have been using on my run stall team, taken from my rmt "I'm stalling on sunshine!"
