PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Razor Leaf is ideal for Victreebel’s role as Water and Rock-type slayer.

  • Solar Beam and Leaf Blade are both stellar charge moves. Solar Beam has higher DPS, but Leaf Blade performs better in practice.

  • Acid can be paired with Sludge Bomb to take on Fairy-types; it’s the best Poison-type moveset in the game.
  • Leaf Tornado and Acid Spray perform poorly in gyms and raids.

PVE Defensive Moves Explanation

  • Although Razor Leaf does more damage on defense, Acid is more effective against Victreebel’s Fire and Flying-type counters.

  • Sludge Bomb has 2 bars, an early damage window, and is neutral against Victreebel’s counters.

  • Leaf Blade shares many of the advantages of Sludge Bomb, except it has poorer type coverage.

  • Solar Beam will not likely get used due to Victreebel’s frailty.

PVE Overview

Shadow Victreebel is an outstanding attacker with both of types, sporting very, very good offensive presence on both sides of the spectrum. That said, its Grass Type role is more potent and useful generally speaking.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Razor Leaf + Leaf Blade and Sludge Bomb or Acid Spray

Shadow Victreebel puts most of its work in just with Razor Leaf. It hits hard, but generates energy incredibly slowly. Leaf Blade, then, pairs with it fantastically, due to its low energy cost. Your second move barely matters, as it's very difficult to reach. Sludge Bomb is a strong Poison-type move that can deal a ton of damage if unshielded. Acid Spray, on the other hand, makes the bet that your opponent is going to shield no matter what (as even a resisted move from Shadow Vic hits hard), and reduces their defense significantly. This either allows Victreebel to Razor Leaf even harder, or at least sets up a better farm for your next Pokémon.

PvP Rating Explanation

Great League: 4 / 5

If you've ever encountered a Shadow Victreebel in Go Battle League, then you know that its entire job is to cut everything in the world down using nothing but leaves. it won't last long, but it has the strongest viable fast move spam in the game. 

Ultra League: 1.5 / 5

While the Shadow Boost works well in Great League, Ultra League is where that loss of defense genuinely hurts. It can pull the same role as its non-shadow forme, but its performance does tend to suffer given the bulk that the Ultra League tends to demand.

Master League: 0 / 5

Victreebel’s low CP cap prevents it from being competitive in Master League.
