We’ve provided two Venusaur builds below to suit two different playstyles. Pick based on the opponents you’re facing or your preferred style of play.

Venusaur build: Low-health life drainer

  • First pick: Razor Blade
  • Move 1: Giga Drain
  • Move 2: Petal Dance
  • Held Items:
    • Wise Glasses
    • Focus Band
    • Assault Vest

This build only begins to kick off once you have access to the Focus Band and Assault Vest, as these will make you much tougher to take down. Range is extremely limited for your specials, so you want to team up with an ally that forces enemies to come to you, rather than you aggressing on them. 

The aim is to sustain yourself with Giga Drain’s boosted resistance, using it after your Boosted Attacks to hit as many enemies at once as possible. Thanks to Venusaur’s passive, you’ll deal extra damage when low on health, so you can chip away with Petal Dance while keeping yourself alive. 

Venusaur build: Skilled sniper

  • First pick: Razor Blade
  • Move 1: Sludge Bomb
  • Move 2: Solar Beam
  • Held Items: 
    • Wise Glasses
    • Focus Band
    • Shell Bell

If you prefer to deal damage form afar, this is the ultimate sniper build for Venusaur. You’re aiming to reach Solar Beam as quickly as possible, as it’s here you’ll be scoring most of your kills. Use Sludge Bomb to harass enemies from behind a frontline teammate like Snorlax, then snipe low health enemies with Solar Beam’s enormous range. Wise Glasses and Shell Bell will both boost your Sp. Atk. damage for even higher damage output.
