Try to use Venusaur’s boosted attack before casting Razor Leaf because Venusaur’s boosted attack pulls enemies closer together so they will be damaged by Razor Leaf together.
You can use the Eject Button to reposition Razor Leaf to hit enemies when your initial aim fails.
Razor Leaf Upgrade Options
Blast a bundled beam of light, dealing damage to enemies in a line.

Build Name: Sludge Beam
The Sludge Beam build is focused on increasing Venusaur’s damage output. Sludge Bomb decreases the special defense of the enemies it affects and Solar Beam deals a lot of special attack damage from a distance.
Shell Bell recovers HP every time you successfully land a move. This is a big help when having a stand-off against other ranged pokemon that equally deal large damage.

Venusaur Gameplay Guide
Venusaur is usually played in the Top or Bottom lane with a support or a defender. Venusaur relies on the high damage output from its Solar Beam to kill enemies and steal objectives so you will need to always be at least on par or ahead of your enemies in terms of level.
In the early game, Venusaur is one of the most effective at stealing wild Pokemon since its Razor Leaf deals a lot of continuous damage from a distance. You can also use this move, along with its other move, Seed Bomb, to harass enemies and discourage them from contesting wild Pokemon since their HP will always be low.
Venusaur’s boosted attack is great for setting up its moves because it pulls enemies hit with it at the center parallel to Venusaur. When used correctly, it can put enemies close together to set them up to be damaged with Venusaur’s abilities.
What is the role of Venusaur when taking objectives?
When Drednaw spawns, always rotate to it if you are laning in the Top lane. Venusaur’s presence is important when taking objectives as its Solar Beam is great at securing the last hit on Drednaw, Rotom, and Zapdos and its Unite move, Verdant Anger deals a lot of damage on a chaotic battlefield.
Middle and Late Game
Using the Sludge Beam build
The Sludge Beam build turns Venusaur into a long-range nuker that deals extreme amounts of damage and it even has a debuff on its Sludge Bomb that slows and reduces the Sp. Def of enemies affected.
Stay behind your defender and supporters while you look for opportunities to burst down enemies. Venusaur’s moves are best chained with your allies’ hindrances so that the enemy will receive the full amount of burst damage you can deal.
Using the Giga Dance build
The Giga Dance build turns Venusaur into a tanky attacker that is capable of dishing it out with the enemy at the middle of the fight.
Venusaur gains additional movement speed, defenses, and it can heal itself when using this build. So you’d want to pair yourself with an attacker or speedster so you can focus on annoying enemies and absorbing damage for your team while your allies attack them from behind you.
When is the best time to use the Verdant Anger Unite move?
Verdant Anger can be hard to aim because its seeds explode at four corners away from the targeted center. Because of its peculiar mechanic, it is best used on big fights when there are three or more enemies. This way, you would increase your chances of hitting an enemy.
You can attempt to deliberately try to hit enemies by manually targeting the move but you also have to take in consideration the short casting delay.
Did you know?
Venusaur can catch the sun’s ray to convert them into energy that causes it flowers to become vibrant. The flowers then, can release a scent that attracts Pokemon and calms emotions.
