Pokémon GO Venusaur: Complete guide and tips

Pokémon  GO Venusaur Guide

Bulbasaur is back in Pokémon GO with the introduction of the first Community Day Classic. As one of the most powerful developments in the game, here's our guide to using Venusaur in battle. New to POGO, the various Community Day Classics in Pokémon GO allow you to rediscover the Pokémon that were featured at the very beginning of the game in 2016.

This first edition of January 2022 once again highlights the Bulbasaur starter,one of the first Pokémon ever created for the first generation Game Boy and no less than number #001 in the Pokédex! But today, we're interested in Venusaur from Pokémon GO, its very powerful final evolution.

Bulbasaur, Ivysaur and Venusaur in Pokémon GO

Available in the game for 6 years now, Bulbasaur and its evolutions have many forms in Pokémon GO. It is possible to catch him in Chromatic form, wearing disguises (but not evolving), in Dark form by defeating Team GO Rocket, in clone form from the very first feature film Pokémon, the movie: Mewtwo counter-attack (sometimes available on the channel Pokémon TV) and finally in temporary Mega-evolution stage. Note that there is a greater chance of catching a Bulbasaur in its male form, making Venusaur female shiny one of the most prized Pokémon in the game and difficult to obtain.

Capturable in the wild, in 5km eggs or by appearance in field studies, Bulbasaur can evolve into Ivysaur for 25 candy and then into Venusaur for 100 candy. At the latter stage, it becomesone of the most powerful Pokémon in the game, partly due to its dual Plant/Poison type but also its excellent movepool.

The exclusive Community Day attack

Venusaur in Pokémon GO does not necessarily have a very varied movepool. However, it is important because the few attacks it does have are extremely effective. On top of that, he has access to the best Plant attack in the game on Community Day or at various Niantic events.

The Charged Attack: Frenzy Plant

In addition to possessing this perfect plant attack,Venusaur is, currently and for a long time, the best user of it. Both powerful and providing a colossal amount of energy, Frenzy Plant is a must-have. If you didn't have the opportunity to upgrade a Ivysaur during Community Day, you still have the option of the Elite Charged Attack TC which will be an excellent investment. Go for it with your eyes closed!

Guide to Venusaur Pokémon GO in PvP battles

Let's face it, Venusaur is excellent all around. This has not changed since his debut in Pokémon GO. His dual Plant / Poison type makes him the only Pokémon plant type to resist the Fairy and Fighting types which are particularly present in the 3 leagues. It also defends itself rather well against the Poison and Insect types. Its only major weakness is the Psy type, but this can easily be countered with a good team strategy.

His perfect moveset remains the same for all three leagues, providing him with an effective STAB and a wide coverage of types.
