The Great Wroggi is finally back in Monster Hunter Rise. Compared to the other monsters, he's an absolute calamity -- but the confrontation involves something you'll need to master to continue your progression: poison and how to cure it.

We advise you to carry Antidotes for this fight, and there should be some in the supply box at camp. Best would be to use Herbal Powder. You can create them in the "Crafting" tab by combining an Antidote with a Blue Mushroom.
The Herbal Powder has many advantages over the Antidote -- instead of having to drink it for quite a long time before it takes effect, the result is instantaneous, plus it will restore life as a bonus.
This could mean the difference between life and death if you are poisoned and still alive!
Fight against the Great Wroggi
If you've defeated the Great Izuchi and haven't forgotten the Herbal Powders, this fight should prove relatively easy.
Aim for the head and avoid charging at the monster when it faces you, since it loves to blow clouds of poison. It's better to attack it from the flanks or back when it's looking away. You can also clear the smaller Wroggis in the area if you want to be left alone against the boss.
In the melee, the Great Wroggi will throw out hip and tail blows, and it will pounce on you. Dodge to the sides and remember to heal yourself when the need arises. Don't wait too long, because a poison, stun, and attack combo can be deadly.
Aim for the Great Wroggi's head whenever possible to inflict maximum damage, with a chance of knocking it to the ground.
