This build focuses on reducing Petal Dance's cooldown to the point where you can keep activating the move all the time. This allows you to keep the uptime of the movement speed increase and the AoE damage to virtually forever. All of this while getting the cooldown reduction effect on Giga Drain. You need to play safe as possible in the early game since you won't have any defensive item equipped.

Shell Bell and Energy Amplifier are your core items for the build, giving you a total of 9% cooldown reduction on your moves. Wise Glasses gives you more damage and increases Giga-Drain's healing. However, if you want more durability, replace Wise Glasses with Buddy Barrier.

Eject Button is the default battle item for the build, giving you a mobility tool to work with. If you find yourself getting disabled by enemy crowd control, you can run Full Heal instead to get around stuns and slows.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 7 Black Emblems for maximum move cooldown reduction, 2 Green Emblems for a bit of damage, and 1 Emblem of any color. Equip Emblems that improve HP since the build lacks durability. You can freely trade Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, and Movement Speed.

Secure Accelgor For Max Cooldown Reduction

A good strategy is to capture Accelgor to get more cooldown reduction! On top of the items and emblems in this build, getting the effect will reduce Petal Dance's cooldown down to 5 seconds. And, Since the move's effect also lasts for 5 seconds, you can essentially keep the move active until Accelgor's effect wears off!

This build is focused on dealing high damage from afar using Solar Beam. Sludge Bomb lets you deny areas from the enemy team with its damage over time and Slow effect on anyone inside its radius, making it easier to target Solar Beam. Try to use Solar Beam from angles that would hit multiple opponents as much as possible.

Wise Glasses, Choice Specs, and Sp. Atk. Specs all contribute to maximize Solar Beam's damage output. However, you can swap out Sp. Atk. Specs for Shell Bell if you wish to play more safely and avoid scoring small quick goals for the bonus Sp. Atk. stat. Since you do not have any defensive items, it is best to use this build if you are in a team with Defenders or All-Rounders that can protect you.

Eject Button is your only means of escaping or repositioning when you need a better angle to use Solar Beam.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems to maximize your moves' damage and 4 Emblems of any color. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Atk since the build goes all-in on damage. You can freely trade Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, and Movement Speed.

This is an AoE, damage-sustain build that focuses on turning Venusaur into a tank that can sustain itself with HP recovery from Giga Drain. Use this build if you are looking to play passively with Petal Dance while making it hard for opponents to knock Venusaur down.

Focus Band and Buddy Barrier provide that much-needed health boost when you're in a middle of a clash. Assault Vest provides Venusaur with survivability, especially against Sp. Attackers that can burst it down.

Eject Button is a must-have battle item for this build, providing both offensive and defensive options. Alternatively, you can run Potion and take advantage of the high amount of HP you get from your items.

Your Boost Emblem loadout should consist of 6 Green Emblems for extra damage and 4 White Emblems to get more HP. Equip Emblems that improve Sp. Def, Defense, or HP since you want to be as durable as possible. You can freely trade Attack, Critical-Hit Rate, and Movement Speed.

Best Moveset

Move Explanation
Petal Dance ImagePetal Dance Petal Dance offers a burst of movement speed and AoE damage in a single move. It's most effective when paired with Giga Drain due to its cooldown reduction mechanic.
Giga Drain ImageGiga Drain Giga Drain is a reliable AoE damage and healing move. It has the potential to sustain Venusaur's HP endlessly when paired with Petal Dance.

The synergy between Petal Dance and Giga Drain allows Venusaur to tank hits while dealing constant damage in an area. The burst of movement speed you get from Petal Dance plus the ability to sustain HP throughout a fight makes it hard for enemies to escape. Also, Giga Drain's cooldown is reduced by 1s every time Petal Dance hits an enemy Pokemon, enabling you to keep spamming it to recover HP.

Choosing a moveset for Venusaur depends on which playstyle you prefer. If you prefer a burst-type damage dealer, always go for Solar Beam and Sludge Bomb. If you prefer a late-game carry playstyle, stick with Petal Dance and Giga Drain.

How to Play Venusaur

Jump to Section

Play Safe Until Level 7

Venusaur's power spike starts at level 7 when it has both of its primary moves. It's best to play safe in the early game and focus first on leveling up.

Take the Jungle

You can always go to the jungle at the start of the game for the most efficient and safest way to level up. However, it all depends on which moveset you're taking. If you're taking Giga Drain and Petal Dance, going to the jungle helps you get to level 7 quickly. But if you're taking Sludge Bomb and Solar Beam, it's better if you head to one of the lanes.

Jungle Guide and Best Junglers

Utilize Razor Leaf in the Early Game

Razor Leaf is a great offensive tool in the early game. Use it as often as you can to farm wild Pokemon or knock out opponents.

Razor Leaf: Venusaur Move Effect and Cooldown

Switch Up Playstyle Based on Chosen Moves

Always switch up your playstyle based on the moveset you're taking. Although both move combinations offer damage, they require two distinct playstyles to work properly.

Play Defensively with Solar Beam and Sludge Bomb

If you're using Solar Beam and Sludge Bomb, you need to stay at the backlines and utilize Solar Beam's long range to provide firepower for your team. You always need to mind your position before using your moves, especially during a teamfight.

Be Aggressive with Giga Drain and Petal Dance

With Giga Drain and Petal Dance, you need to be in the frontlines to make the most out of the moveset. The key to this moveset is reducing Giga Drain's cooldown by hitting as many opponents as you can with Petal Dance, allowing you to continuously recovery HP while fighting.

Control Enemy Movement with Boosted Attacks

Venusaur's Boosted Attacks pull targets towards it and briefly stuns it. Use your Boosted Attacks to control enemy movement and set up your other moves.

Utilize Overgrow

Venusaur's passive ability, Overgrow, increases its damage when the Pokemon is at low HP. This is useful for 1v1 fights since it gives you an edge as your HP drops. However, you shouldn't always try to fight at low HP just for the damage. It's important to know when to fight and when to retreat.

Moreover, Overgrow works best if you're running Giga Drain and Petal Dance since you can sustain HP while fighting.

Overgrow: Venusaur Ability Effects

Initiate Fights with Verdant Anger

Verdant Anger is a great initiation tool due to its damage. Use it to deplete your enemies' HP before the fight starts, giving your team an advantage for the fight.

Best Teammates for Venusaur

Pokemon Explanation
Mr. Mime ImageMr. Mime Snorlax ImageSnorlax Tsareena ImageTsareena Aggressive Frontliners
Regardless of which moveset Venusaur learns, having Pokemon that can tank and deal damage in the frontlines gives room for the Pokemon to freely hit enemies. They can also use disabling moves like Heavy Slam and Confusion to keep enemies away from Venusaur or to set up for the Pokemon's moves. Moreover, they are excellent lane partners for Venusaur.
Alolan Ninetales ImageAlolan Ninetales Slowbro ImageSlowbro Wigglytuff ImageWigglytuff Disablers
Pokemon with disabling moves can take some pressure off of Venusaur and are great as lane partners, especially in the early game. AoE disabling moves like Dazzling Gleam and Sing can protect Venusaur from threats and also help the Pokemon set up its moves, particularly Solar Beam. Meanwhile, a move like Slowbeam can keep a target in place long enough for Venusaur to knock it out before it can retaliate.
Blissey ImageBlissey Dedicated Supporters
Having a dedicated supporter for Venusaur allows the Pokemon to become more efficient throughout the game, especially if Venusaur goes for the Petal Dance and Giga Drain build. Short-cooldown healing moves like Soft-Boiled practically doubles Venusaur's sustainability by acting as another source of healing. Meanwhile, moves like Safeguard protects Venusaur from disables and burst damage, ensuring that the Pokemon can keep using Petal Dance and Giga Drain during fights. Moreover, a move like Bliss Assistance can make the Pokemon virtually unkillable.
