With the 1.2.1.3 patch update, Venusaur's Petal Dance and Giga Drain have been buffed hard. Also, the addition of the new held item, Choice Specs, makes Venusaur, as well as other Sp.Atk. Pokemon, output more damage. WIth that, although an Attacker by default, having Venusaur gain levels faster by taking the jungler role enables it to dominate the game early on, especially in teamfights.

For Top and Bottom lane teams try to pair Melee Range Attakers with Melee Range Supports, and Long Range Attackers with shielding or high crowd control supports.

Pokemon which have three evolution stages tend to take longer than others to reach their full potential. When three or more of these Pokemon are on a team, it can be difficult for the team to gain traction in the early game. Watch what Pokemon your teammates have picked and avoid stacking too many late bloomers on a team.

Avoid a Melee-Only Team

It's difficult to maintain a consistent source of damage when your team can only attack up close and personal. Try to make a team with at least one Pokemon who can deal reliable damage from a ranged distance.

Best Team Comp

Team 1: Venusaur Jungle Meta

Lane Pokemon How to Use
Top Snorlax ImageSnorlax Tank & Team Fight Initiate
・Use Tackle or Heavy Slam to initiate fights
・Use Block to zone out enemies, and secure objectives
Sylveon ImageSylveon Damage & Utility
・Safely attack behind the tank
・Use Hyper Voice and Calm Mind as a follow up Snorlax's initiation
Jungler Venusaur ImageVenusaur Sustain & Damage
・Jungle until Lv. 5, then pressure bot lane
・Get aggressive once Petal Dance and Giga Drain are available
・Use Giga Drain and Petal Dance on grouped enemies
Bot Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Heals & Shields
・Use Leaf Tornado to grant increased movement speed to allies in teamfights
・Use Cotton Guard constantly to prolong fights
Lucario ImageLucario Early-Game Attacker
・Use Standard Attacks from the start to pressure opponents
・Be aggressive early on until Venusaur gets Petal Dance and Giga Drain

This team composition focuses on Sp.Atk. Pokemon with Venusaur as a jungler to get Petal Dance and Giga Drain as early as possible and carry the game later on.

Snorlax and Sylveon are stable top laners that have great synergy via their moves. Snorlax can tank damage and initiate fights while Sylveon deals high amounts of Sp.Atk. damage from behind. This will either dominate the lane or defend it long enough for Venusaur to start carrying the game.

Lucario and Eldegoss are an aggressive duo that is also hard to fend off the lane. Whichever moveset Lucario learns, Eldegoss can enable Lucario's aggression via Cotton Guard and Leaf Tornado.

Team 2: Tri-Lane Bot Meta

Lane Pokemon How to Use
Top Lucario ImageLucario Hold Lane & Solo Farm Exp.
・Focus on leveling up
・Be defensive
・Get Extreme Speed and Bone Rush for mobility
・Stay in lane even if the first Drednaw spawns, but score points when enemy goal is open
Jungle Greninja ImageGreninja Late-Game Damage Dealer
・Jungle until Lv.5, then help top if needed
・Secure the first Drednaw, then push bottom lane
Bot Eldegoss ImageEldegoss Support
・Use Leaf Tornado to grant increased movement speed to allies in teamfights
・Use Cotton Guard constantly to support Snorlax's aggressive gameplay
Snorlax ImageSnorlax Tank & Initiator
・Use Tackle or Heavy Slam to initiate fights
・Use Block to zone out enemies, and secure objectives
・Be aggressive early on, and tank damage
Sylveon ImageSylveon Long Range DPS
・Always stay behind Snorlax, and near Eldegoss
・Get Hyper Voice for damage, not Mystical Fire
・Provide constant damage from a safe distance via Hyper Voice

This is a risky gameplay with three Pokemon going bottom lane in the hopes of securing the Drednaw objective easier. One upside to this is the team will have two high-level Pokemon since they will be soaking all the Exp. from their lane. Snorlax, Eldegoss, and Sylveon are a well-balanced trio that have incredible synergy, enabling them to be aggressive while having decent defensive capabilities. Snorlax can initiate fights and tank damage with Sylveon dealing damage from behind, while Eldegoss provides constant healing and shields.

Putting Greninja, or any late-game damage dealer, in the jungle ensures that they will reach their power spike as fast as possible to carry the game later on.

Lucario is a great pick for soloing top lane. Lucario is durable enough to hold the lane but can also deal decent damage to fend off pursuing enemies.

How to Build a Team

In general, when putting together a team composition of your own, it's good to have the following team balance in mind.

  • One Tank
  • Two Damage Dealers
  • One Support
  • One Jungler

Tank

The Tank will be the one that soaks up the damage. They should have high defense so that they can survive being attacked by enemies, and they should have skills that hinder or disable enemies, while not as much as the support, it would still be useful in team fights.

Another good thing they should have is the ability to initiate as they'll be the ones taking most of the skills when they initiate. This isn't a hard requirement but it's nice to have.

Defender Pokemon play this role well, but some All-Rounders can be built as tanks.

Damage Dealers

Damage dealers need be able to to deal a burst of damage, able to take out enemies quickly. They will be your primary source of stopping power, which is why you can have two of them.

They don't need to be tanky (although depending on the character, they could be), and they don't need a lot of stun because that's the support's job, so they should have primarily damage dealing skills.

In the laning phase, they'll be split up, one on top and one on the bottom, so the other two roles can each look out for them and help them achieve their kills.

Attackers fill this role nicely, but the role could reasonably be filled by All-Rounders or Speedsters.

Support

Support characters should have disabling skills, debuffs for the enemy, for buffs for the team in order to be effective.

They're job is to be with others and make sure they have the openings to take out Pokemon from the enemy team. A support is rarely useful on their own, and they should focus on disabling the damage dealers from the other team.

The best characters for this class are obviously the Support Pokemon.

Jungler

The Jungler is a unique role that can make or break the game. They don't follow the lanes unlike the other four, rather they head into the central part of the map, which we'll call the Jungle.

They gain the most experience due to not having to share with another player, and because of their unique position, they can affect both lanes by ganking, which is the term for sneaking into a lane and attacking the enemy. This dictates the pace of the lane and determines when objectives can be taken. This is why having high movement speed can help, so that you can travel between lanes and clear the jungle quickly.

They also manage to get buffs from defeating Ludicolo and Bouffalant from their respective sides of the jungle.

Speedsters make great junglers, more often than not. Some All-Rounders can be Junglers as well if they're mobile.

What Makes A Good Team Comp?

A good team composition is well-balanced, meaning everyone's roles cover for each others weaknesses.

Their skills must complement each other and make them more effective as a whole rather than acting as five individual units.
