 Pokémon Information
 Competitive Battling
Venusaur finds itself in the Over-Utilized and Uber Tiers of Competitive Battling thanks to its hidden Ability Chlorophyll, which is a great asset on teams based around the usage of Drought and Sunny Day. Under these conditions, the effects of Growth are doubled, increasing both Attack and Special Attack by two stages on one usage. Its typing allows it to absorb Toxic Spikes as well.
Despite the Speed Boost from Chlorophyll, the fastest Choice Scarf users will still be able to hit Venusaur before it can attack. Opponents with Prankster will be able to hit Venusaur with a Status Condition ahead of it. Changing or nullifying the weather will also shut Venusaur down, but if it can set up its Statistic boosts, it's going to be able to hit with a lot of force.
