Contrary to what most newer players think, Venusaur is an
overused Pokémon in competetive play. Getting STAB on Sludge
Bomb and HP:Grass, while getting Leech Seed, EQ, Swords Dance,
Synthesis, and many other extremely good standard moves makes it
worth a slot on any competetive team.
Pros: Great movepool, decent stats, absolutely evil threat
Cons: Gets run over by Sally and Gyarados, gets walled by
Celery, and can't even touch Steelix/Skarm/Metagross without EQ
Uber: 1/5. Can't last against any Ubers.
Standard: 3/5. Counters a lot, but gets countered by many of the
most common Pokemon.
UU: 1/5. If you can find someone to let you play it, then it
would be a 4/5, but that's not going to happen.
VENUSAUR! This dinosaur is often an overlooked Pokemon, and
deserves a fine analysis.
The standard Venusaur. Put a foe to sleep, use Leech Seed on the
switch, and switch in another Pokemon. If the opposing Pokemon
switches, you've gotten a free switch; if the Pokemon attacks,
simply absorb health with Leech Seed. If used properly, this set
will make you more annoyed than bad players complaining about
cookie-cutters on the YuGiOh boards. Venusaur's HP is maxed, has
a little speed for Tyranitar, and its Defenses are spread out
evenly. Go with Impish with Sludge Bomb and Bold with HP Grass.
Venusaur will hardly be attacking, though, so its nature doesn't
Venusaur (M) @ Leftovers
I'm back from the dead once again. It's odd. Some people only
pick one type of starter each time they play a game. My sister
picks water pokemon fom Blue, to Gold, to Sapphire, to Leafgreen.
Me? I don't pick the water pokemon. I usually pick fire or
grass. In red I chose Bulbasaur, in Silver I chose
Cyndaquil(after my game with a level 87 Feraligatr at teh
seventh gym got deleted, and I got a second copy of gold and
picked Chikorita), in RUby I picked Torchic, in Emerald I icked
Treecko, and Firered I picked Bulbasaur. Wierd how that works,
Well we are reviewing Venusaur today. It is a very good pokemon.
LIke most o teh rass starters, it's easy to get the very first
evolution to it's final stage. But you don't get the better
pay-off. Venusaur has similar stats to last week's pokemon of
teh week, Charizard. It has high special attack, and decent
everywhere else. I usually use Venusaur as a big gun, ready to
take down most of the opposing pokemon if I need it to.
Also liek Charizard, Venusaur is double typed and double
Grass and Poison, which really stinks, as Grass has a couple of
weaknesses(Fre and Flying, along with a bit of Bug) and Poison
is weak to Psychic, a very strong type. This may hamper some of
Venusaurs usefullness, but only in the
form of Fire and Psychic. I mean, who is going to face you when
you have a Venusaur and they have a Beedrill? I'm not saying
beedrill is bad, it's just not a great all around pokemon to use
in tournaments and stuff like that. And Flying dosen't have many
big guns besides teh legendary birds and Pidgeot, with Fearow
and Golbat and Aerodactyl. Watch out for Xatu and Moltres
escpecially, as they exploit most of Venusaurs weaknesses.
By far a great pokemon, just the types hamper it down. 7/10.
Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing the big flower dinosaur; Venusaur.
Another starter for the list. Venusaur has tremendous defenses.
It is a poison type and that was bad moths ago. But today we’re
not seeing many psychical types so Venusaur is made to be a
tank. Man, it can even survive a fire blast!
You know the grass starter ability, not too great, but I guess
is better than nothing.
Now, for the move combination, as we said, Venusaur is a classic
tank, made to be a survivor over the strongest sweepers. Let’s
