Vigoroth is a bipedal white Pokémon with a teardrop-shaped tuft of crimson fur on its forehead. It features stubby ears, two little triangular teeth in each jaw, a brown lower jaw, and huge brown-ringed eyes. The rear of the animal has two brown stripes. It has lengthy arms and two sharp black claws on its hands and feet. The undersides of its hands and feet have round red pads, and it has a baboon-like patch of red on its back. It has shaggy hair on its chest, tail, and the sides of its jaws.

Vigoroth’s heart beats 10 times faster and cannot stop for even a minute. Trying to stand motionless or sleep increases its tension and agitates its blood. It enjoys going insane by whirling its arms and destroying anything in its path. It rampages into the forest. It is constantly hungry as a result of its rampages.
