Pokémon Go Mega Venusaur

Pokémon Go Mega Venusaur, the Mega Evolved form of the Seed Pokémon, Venusaur, is now available in Pokémon Go. As the first Pokémon in the Mega Pokédex by number, Mega Venusaur will always hold a special position in Trainers’ hearts. But sentiment aside, it’s still a decent Pokémon to have in your back pocket. Despite now being outclassed by Mega Sceptile, it can still pump out huge damage when you need it to. If you don’t have one, make sure you pick one up when you get the chance!

Mega Venusaur Overview

Like all Mega Evolutions, Mega Venusaur can’t be caught directly in Pokémon Go. Instead, you need to keep defeating it in Mega Raids until you’ve collected enough Mega Venusaur Energy for its temporary evolution.

Best Mega Venusaur Moveset in Pokémon Go

Mega Venusaur is no longer the best Mega for either of its two typings, playing second-fiddle to Mega Sceptile (which has a much higher attack stat) for Grass, and third-fiddle to Mega Gengar and Mega Beedrill. That said, having Mega Venusaur as a backup Grass-type mega for when you don’t have the Christmas-Tree Pokémon ready to go is a great option. The best Mega Venusaur moves in Pokémon Go are Vine Whip (Fast) and Frenzy Plant (Legacy Charged).

Here are all the Fast and Charged moves Mega Venusaur can use in Pokémon Go:

Fast Moves

  • Vine Whip (Grass)
  • Razor Leaf (Grass)

Charged Moves

  • Frenzy Plant (Grass)
  • Solar Beam (Grass)
  • Petal Blizzard (Grass)

Venusaur Evolution Line

The Seed Pokémon, Venusaur, is pretty cool. As the final evolution of the first Pokémon in the Pokédex, it will always hold a special place in our hearts. The fact that it looks like a cross between a dinosaur and a dog carrying a palm tree on its back doesn’t hurt. Two of those things are cool and the third is cooling. We wholeheartedly approve.

Everything in the Bulbasaur evolution line is a Grass/Poison-type. Here are the official Pokédex entries for each stage:


“For some time after its birth, it uses the nutrients that are packed into the seed on its back in order to grow.”


“The more sunlight Ivysaur bathes in, the more strength wells up within it, allowing the bud on its back to grow larger.”


“While it basks in the sun, it can convert the light into energy. As a result, it is more powerful in the summertime.”

Mega Venusaur:

“By spreading the broad petals of its flower and catching the sun’s rays, it fills its body with power.”
