Venusaur, The Seed Pokémon. The plant on it's back blossoms when absorbing solar energy. It is always moving to get sunlight. By spreading the broad petals on it's flower aswell as catching the sun's rays, it fills it's body with power. As it warms itself and absorbs sunlight, it's flower releases a pleasant scent. The flower is said to take on vivid colours if it gets plenty of nutrition and sunlight. It's aroma soothes the emotions of humans. The Fragrance from it's flower becalms it's foes in battle.

Strategy Using Venusaur

Venusaur has a few possible movesets it can use and learns a wide variety of moves that can provide annoyance.
This moveset however, is designed to be annoying (I would've given you the Sunnybeamer set, but since Tangela has just been done, I don't want to repeat that moveset) and will also help replenish some health if you do get hit by an attack.
Since Venusaur has his stats dispersed somewhat evenly, it can be of use as a tank too. However, Venusaur's best stats are its specials, which allows for it to be the aforementioned Sunnybeamer/Annoyer.
You may require some precognitive thinking if you wish to use this moveset, try to avoid a majority of steel types that may be thrown into the battle.
To avoid further bafflement and confusion, I shall explain the workings of this set, if you don't know it already. Toxic and Leech seed, the coalescence of two perfectly helpful moves. Toxic, the Health pointer drainer which augments with each turn, dealing a greater amount of damage.
Leech seed, the move that sponges of your opponent's HP, confiscating that much needed HP if it wishes to survive any longer. As for the other moves, of course Attract makes perfect sense, it will beleaguer your opposition with the ability of preventing from his Pokemon from attacking.
Magical leaf, the 100% accurate move, no matter what kind of accuracy lowering effects are used. The exactitude of this move should provide you with quite a bit of help if Venusaur ends up becoming your last Pokemon.
This is such a Puissant Pokemon, with a various potential movesets that each, in there own right, will do Venusaur proud.
