2 years ago#1
Some people told me that Mega Venusaur would be good for a rain team and I was wondering how I should raise it.

Things I know:
He has high balanced stats
Thick Fat takes away Fire and Ice weaknesses.
Rain will make fire even weaker.

Thinks I need to know:
Best nature
Should I go tanky or attacker
Physical, special, or mixed attack
Ev spread

I was leaning more towards a physical tank and a special move set with

Energy Ball/ Petal Dance
Leech Seed

I don't really know his new move pool that well.
Can Venusaur learn any water moves this gen?

Thanks in advance

I don't quite see the point of it in a rain team. It's decent but it doesn't really gain anything from rain, and it loses a recovery move.

That's not all it loses it loses a 2 stage attack boost from growth & a double speed bonus when you use it's ability in Sunlight as well as access to an instant solar beam in sunlight. If your considering running it in a rain team your attacking options will be really limited to probably Sludge Bomb, Energy Ball, Sleep Powder and Leech Seed.

The problem with Venusaur in a rain team is although it doesn't pick up any extra weaknesses, it gains absolutely nothing from it. Venusaur was made for Sun Team

Chlorophyll, Solar Beam and Growth are it's biggest and most appealing options otherwise it kinda struggles.

He's talking about using it as a mega because of thick fat, so using a bulkier build

According to Bulbapedia it can (but I think that's through move tutor in the previous Generation). To be fair mate it does have very huge bulk and can take a hit very well.

Yes, but it's not very useful in rain.

Yea in Rain Synthesis ( Venusaur learns its at lvl 45 just got home and looked it up) heals 25%.

Yet with Drizzle's new mechanics only lasting 5 turns Mega Venusaur could be a late battle Tank after Rain has finished and Politoed dead. Also if facing a sun team it would be even better.

Any thoughts.

And yes with Thick Fat Venusaur has only 2 weaknesses Flying and Psychic.

Sludge Bomb would be a could second stab

So that would make

Energy Ball or Giga Drain ( for more tanky ness)
Sludge Bomb
Synthesis
Leech Seed
