Offensive Moves Explanation
  • Vine Whip is on par with Razor Leaf on attack, the former being easier to dodge with and the latter having slightly higher DPS.
  • Venusaur's best charge move is Solar Beam, due to its STAB and extreme power. 
  • Petal Blizzard does less base damage, but still hits hard against meta relevant Pokemon like Vaporeon, Rhydon, and Tyranitar. Its power is somewhat disappointing for a 1 bar move.
  • Sludge Bomb has poor type coverage and no synergy with Venusaur's fast moves.
Defensive Moves Explanation
  • Razor Leaf has greater defensive DPS than Vine Whip, making it the optimal choice.
  • Sludge Bomb is the best charge move on defense, with a different effectiveness profile than Razor Leaf and 2 bars for less predictability.
  • Petal Blizzard and Solar Beam are practically the same on defense. Both are 1 bar moves, with Petal Blizzard hitting earlier and Solar Beam hitting harder.

Rating Explanation:

Venusaur's utility in the Pokemon GO metagame is closely related to the presence of Vaporeon, one of the Pokemon that Venusaur excels at countering. Venusaur is arguably the best available Grass-type attacker in the game, possessing well-balanced stats and solid move options. It also performs well against Rock and Ground-types, although better options exist in those matchups.

Defensively, Venusaur has seen better days. Grass is resisted by 7 types and Venusaur suffers from bad matchups to Espeon and Flareon, which among the most offensively potent and easily obtainable species in the game.

Raid Boss Counters
SupremeOverall best counter always. Almost always top in DPS and very high in survivability. The Pokemon you want for the job.
GoodThe next best if you don’t have Supreme Pokemon.
TankWhen you’re down to your 5-6th Pokemon and need to hold the line and not suck while doing it. Tanks always have more survivability than Supreme, but less DPS than Good.
