What are the Weaknesses and Raid Counters of Mega Venusaur in Pokemon GO
Here’s an overview of the top Mega Venusaur counters for Pokemon GO so you can benefit from those inherent weakness.
To admit it, I don’t believe I’ve ever met anyone with Venusaurs back to those Pokemon Red and Blue days. Everyone was either Charizard or Blastoise and so, there was no one who decided to go with Bulbasaur as their primary. Although it may receive less attention than the other starters however, it’s the the first Grass starter Pokemon and that title is full of respectability. It’s not one Pokemon that you can play with a weak hand, especially since it’s Mega Evolved. Be prepared with the right knowledge and know Venusaur’s weaknesses as well as Raid Counters from Pokemon GO.
Mega Venusaur Resistances and Weaknesses
Mega Venusaur is currently heading into Mega Raids in Pokemon GO and is likely to play for at least for the next few weeks. If you’re wondering whether it is true that the Bulbasaur range is known tohave its shiny versions within the Pokemon GO Pokedex, so you could encounter the shiny Mega Venusaur which means that now is the perfect time to test it.
Mega Venusaur maintains the same type as its normal model, Poison/Grass. Its resistances are broken down as follows:
- Intolerant to fighting Electricity, water, and Fairy
- Double-Resistant Grass
- Unsafe against flying or fire, Psychic, Ice
Mega Venusaur Moves
These are, in turn, the movements Mega Venusaur has in its kit:
- Vine Whip (Grass)
- Razor Leaf (Grass)
- Petal Blizzard (Grass)
- Solar Beam (Grass)
- Sludge Bomb (Poison)
Mega Venusaur Counters
Mega Venusaur is above average in both defense and attack departments and, in order to take it down you’ll need an Pokemon that has similar abilities, while making use of its weaknesses. Fortunately, since the majority Mega Venusaur’s moves are Grass kind and if you choose an Pokemon that is resistant to Grass (and preferably Poison however it’s not a priority)) It’ll only be able to barely be able to touch your.
List of Mega Venusaur Counters
- Chandelure – Fire Spin/Overheat
- Hoopa Unbound – Confusion/Psychic
- Mewtwo– Confusion/Psystrike
- Darmanitan– Fire Fang/Overheat
- Galarian Zen Darmanitan – Ice Fang/Avalanche
- Calyrex (Shadow Rider) – Confusion/Shadow Ball
- Reshiram– Fire Fang/Overheat
- Ho-Oh – Incinerate/Sacred Fire++
- Lugia – Extrasensory/Aeroblast++
- Moltres – Fire Spin/Sky Attack
In the case of restraining Grass attacks, you should choose an Fire type. When you are trying to exploit Grass weaknesses, you’ll need the Ice type. Which Pokemon has both? It’s our former good friend Galarian Zen Darmanitan. Its dual Ice/Fire typing renders it invulnerable to Grass moves, and it gives the player a range of strategies to take advantage of Mega Venusaur’s weak points.
Although it’s a little lacking in terms of defense however, its attack base far surpasses Mega Venusaur’s, so it is able to easily be a winner in the DPS race. If you’re looking for something less balanced Chandelure is an excellent choice, since its Ghost/Fire type makes it immune against either Grass and Poison attacks and has devastating Fire tactics to defend with.
If you’re looking to utilize an Legendary then it’s best to reverse the script and make use of Mega Venusaur’s weakness by using Psychic moves, rather than Fire as Psychic Legendaries are generally more powerful. The most strong Pokemon that you can use to do these would be Shadow Rider Calyrex, Hoopa Unbound as well as your preferred Psychic Legendary and mine, Mewtwo.
