Pokemon Unite Venusaur Build: Best Moves, Items, Strategy & More

If you’re a fan of the original 151 Pokemon, Venusaur might be your choice in Pokemon Unite. Are you eager to go on the offensive with an overgrown tank? If so, we have the guide in order to maximize your build and ensure a swift victory.

Interestingly, Venusaur is a particularly troublesome foe with the right setup. You can play him in a couple of different ways, but our guide will show you how to turn Venusaur into a powerful plant-based menace.

Whilst Venusaur is listed as an Attacker, he also benefits from being able to attack as a Ranged Pokemon too. This means that you can switch up your approach in different matches, for more effective results.

Venusaur Build – Pokemon Unite


Upon beginning the game you will start as the iconic Bulbasaur, before evolving at level 5 into Ivysaur. At level 9 you will evolve once more into Venusaur.

Unique Abilities

Overgrow – When the Pokemon is at low HP, the damage it deals is increased.

Basic Attack – Becomes a booster attack with every third attack, dealing increased damage. This boosted attack also pulls opposing Pokemon inward between the user’s vines.

Level 1/3

Seed Bomb – 6s Cooldown – Hurls a large seed at the designated area, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect.

Razor Leaf – 9s Cooldown – Launches many sharp-edged leaves in a quick succession of attacks, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect.

Seed Bomb is the best pick for Venusaur as the AOE damage will make it easier to hit multiple enemies at once and zone out other players.

Level 5

Sludge Bomb – 6s Cooldown – Hurls unsanitary sludge to the designated area, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect, leaving them poisoned and decreasing their movement speed and Sp. Def for a short time.

Upgrade: Increases this move’s area of effect.

Giga Drain – 7s Cooldown – Drains HP from opposing Pokemon in the area of effect, dealing damage to them and restoring the user’s HP when it hits. Also reduces the damage the user receives for a short time.

Upgrade: Increases the amount of HP this move restores.

Whilst the AOE heal is great, Sludge Bomb is a really good choice for an offensive Venusaur with an area of denial, slow, and weakening effect. However, if you are struggling with sustainability you can opt for Giga Drain instead.

Level 11

Solar Beam – 11s Cooldown – Blasts a bundled beam of light, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect.

Upgrade: Reduces this move’s cooldown.

Petal Dance – 11s Cooldown – Scatters petals around the user, increasing movement speed for a short time and dealing damage over time to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect.

Upgrade: Increases this move’s area of effect.

Solar Beam, Venusaur’s iconic Pokemon move, is of course the best choice here. Furthermore, it offers insane damage so make sure to use it wisely.

Level 9

Unite Move – Verdant Anger – Launches a giant seed toward the designated area. The see then splits apart, dealing damage to opposing Pokemon in the area of effect and decreasing their movement speed for a short time.

Like most Unite Moves, Venusaur’s is capable of putting out massive damage, but it can also be used to shut down a team fight, deny an area, or slow down escaping opponents.
