Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Vine Whip is on par with Razor Leaf on attack; though they’re very different moves, they end up close in cycle DPS.

  • Frenzy Plant has absurdly high damage for a 2-bar charge move and is optimal. 

  • Solar Beam is frequently superior to Petal Blizzard due to its massive base power.

  • Sludge Bomb has little use on an offensive Venusaur.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Razor Leaf is far superior to Vine Whip, netting higher damage and energy gain.

  • Sludge Bomb is an off-type multi-bar charge move, which can hurt Venusaur's counters.

  • Frenzy Plant is powerful but has poor typing and is easily dodged.

Rating Explanation

Venusaur’s prestige in the Grass-type DPS world was slowly slipping with the introduction of Sceptile and the specter of high-octane legendary Pokemon that randomly have Solar Beam (such as Groudon). Although its Atk doesn’t even break 200, it’s still competitive. The reason why is Frenzy Plant, one of the best charged moves in the game.

Defensively, Venusaur has seen better days. Grass is resisted by 7 types and Venusaur suffers weaknesses to Espeon and Flareon in addition to the Psychic, Fire, and Flying-type legendaries running rampant in GO.
