They show off their Poké Ball caps to lure prey, but very few Pokémon are fooled by this.

Amoonguss now has 3 Pokeball-shaped pieces on its body. In the game, some Pokeball items in the grass actually turn out to be wild Amoonguss, which will battle you if you try to pick up the “item”. I like how its mouth looks like it’s whistling.
Amoonguss’s name, together with its pre-evolution’s name, sound like “foongus among us”, though for some reason Amoonguss has two S’s at the end.
Stat-wise, despite only having base stat of 464, Smogon categorized it as usable in the Overused category, and Amoonguss was apparently used a lot in the Japanese tournament, due to the fact that it can learn Spore. Its ability Effect Spore can make it sort of a good defensive Pokemon. Its actual Defensive stats aren’t great, though it has good HP. It has decent Attack and Sp Attack, but not much Speed.
