PVE Offensive Moves Explanation

  • Vine Whip is on par with Razor Leaf on attack; though they’re very different moves, they end up close in cycle DPS.
  • Frenzy Plant has absurdly high damage for a 2-bar charge move and is optimal. 
  • Solar Beam is frequently superior to Petal Blizzard due to its massive base power.
  • Sludge Bomb has little use on an offensive Venusaur.
  • Return has no use on an offensive Venusaur.

PVE Overview

One of the first Mega Pokemon released into Pokemon Go, Mega Venusaur sets the playing field for Grass-types in the PvE meta. While it's not the most powerful Mega Pokemon in the game, it's still considerably stronger than most existing Grass-types, not to mention the boost it provides to the raid attacking party overall is highly valuable. Poison-typing unfortunately isn't as useful, and it's often better to look at other typings. 

Long-term, Venusaur is probably the most future-proof of the first-wave Mega Evolutions. While it is destined to lose to Mega Sceptile in the DPS-race, it sports the highest bulk of any Grass Type Mega Evolution, meaning its Mega Boost will last substantially longer if played correctly. This alone makes Mega Venusaur potentially superior in larger raid groups, where its competitive DPS and long-term boost may situationally outpace the performance of Mega Sceptile.

PvP Moveset Explanation

Vine Whip is the preferred fast move for Venusaur due to greater energy generation, which allows Venusaur to take advantage of its powerful charge moves. Razor Leaf is a more polarizing fast move that focuses on dealing damage without requiring energy or being denied by shields, though its slow energy generation causes Venusaur to lose some neutral matchups. 

Frenzy Plant is the main selling feature of Venusaur, with an insane 2.22 DPE (Damage Per Energy) and moderate energy cost. If you don't have access to Frenzy Plant, consider Ivysaur with Power Whip instead. Sludge Bomb is a nice STAB coverage move that also gives it an advantage against other Grass-type picks.
