Venusaur (フシギバナ) is the third Pokémon in the Pokédex. It is a Grass/Poison Type, and it is known as the Seed Pokémon.

Venusaur has the Overgrow Ability. With this Ability, once Venusaur's HP is less than or equal to a third, all its Grass type moves are 50% stronger. Venusaur's Hidden Ability is the Chlorophyll Ability. This Ability doubles its Speed during periods of strong sunlight, but its Speed won't double on the turn in which the weather becomes Clear Skies.

At level 16 Bulbasaur can evolve into Ivysaur, and can evolve a second time at level 32 into Venusaur.

Venusaur is in the Egg Groups Monster and Grass, and its Egg will hatch after approximately 5,120 Steps. It will take a Venusaur 1,059,860 experience to reach level 100.

[edit] Anime/Manga Information

[edit] Anime

Venusaur's most prominent appearances in the Wild were the episodes Bulbasaur's Mysterious Garden, in which Ash's Bulbasaur refused to evolve; and Grass Hysteria, in which May got dropped into a forbidden forest by a Skarmory.

May would eventually own a Venusaur herself, when her Bulbasaur evolved prior to the episode Pruning a Passel of Pals!. She would use this Venusaur in the Wallace Cup.

[edit] Manga

Red gave his Venusaur the nickname "Saur" when it was a Bulbasaur.

[edit] Pokémon Information

[edit] 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.
