Venusaur is a monster under the sun, capable of running through any team that isn't prepared for it. Life Orb is the preferred item as it provides a substantial boost to Venusaur's offenses. Growth is the most important move in the set, as it boosts Venusaur's Special Attack to deadly levels. Giga Drain is Venusaur's preferred STAB move, but if sufficient team support is run to remove enemy weather inducers, then SolarBeam becomes a viable choice for its raw power. Hidden Power Fire is essential, as with it Venusaur can destroy any Steel-type—bar Heatran—under the sun with a Growth boost. Sludge Bomb provides a powerful secondary STAB move, but Sleep Powder is also an option for its ability to remove nearly any of Venusaur's counters from the game.

It cannot be stressed enough that Drought Ninetales is mandatory support for this set, as without it Venusaur is a subpar sweeper. Venusaur also wants the opponent's weather inducers out of the way, so Wobbuffet is an excellent choice for trapping and eliminating them.

Blissey and Chansey can counter this set if Venusaur has been weakened or if they're carrying Thunder Wave. They can even negate Sleep Powder with their Natural Cure ability, so consider using a strong Pursuit user such as Scizor can be used to trap and remove them. If Hidden Power Fire is not being run it is recommended that Magnezone be used to trap and KO bothersome Steel-types.
