Pojo's Pokemon of the Week



Date Reviewed: 07.14.06

Ratings & Reviews Summary: 2.78

Ratings are based on a 1 to 5 scale.
1 being the worst.  3 ... average.  5 is the highest rating.

Clown Master 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 range.

Cons: Gets run over by Sally and Gyarados, gets walled by Celery, and can't even touch Steelix/Skarm/Metagross without EQ or HP:Fire.

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.
Brown Bomber VENUSAUR! This dinosaur is often an overlooked Pokemon, and deserves a fine analysis.

Venusaur (M) @ Leftovers
Trait: Overgrow
EVs: 252 HP / 142 Def / 20 Spd / 96 SDef
Impish/Bold Nature (+Def, -SAtk/-Atk)
- Sleep Powder
- Leech Seed
- Sludge Bomb/Hidden Power [Grass]
- Synthesis

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 matter.

Venusaur (M) @ Leftovers
 Okay, 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, huh?

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 weakness.....ed.
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.

You guys keep on rollin',

Reeve Venusaur.
# 003.
Type: Grass/Poison.
Ability: Overgrow.
Locations: Evolve Ivysaur.

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 move on.

Nature: Bold (+ Defense, - Attack).
Equip: Leftovers.
EV´s: 252 HP, 129 Defense, 129 Special Defense.
- Toxic
- Leech seed
- Magical leaf
- Substitute

Very annoying and effective. Substitute is for effective hits. Toxic and leech seed just to cause the damage and magical leaf because is better then razor leaf.

When should I use this Pokémon?
Against a sweeping team. Don’t be afraid of fire, Venusaur can handle it. Remember to combine your moves properly.

What should I use against this Pokémon?
Crobat anyone? The perfect antitank. Just don’t use another tank. It could be a LONG battle…

Bottom line:
Best used for in-game purposes, but effective anyway.


Hope you enjoyed.
