- Leech Seed
Leech Seed brings back the needed HP plus with the Big root it bring back even more than what leech seed was supposed to guaranty. * If using this Venusaur I always recommend using leech seed first before any other move. Substitute and Protect both have the same job which can seem a bit of a waist, But first once leech seed is up you can go at this either way. You can go protect if the enemy is trying to dish out damage and block it further extending the process of leech seed. Or if the enemy is trying to raise stats, use a substitute so that you can avoid a STAB move. By that time the enemy should have lost a quarter of its health. Then once the sub is down repeat the process (without using leech seed) and remember to watch the enemy health. Use a protect to block moves and a sub to avoid 1 hit KO moves, and with the health being gained from leech seed their is no need to worry about sub health lost. Now comes Sludgebomb. Which can be used in different ways. You can use Sludgebomb to decrease the enemies health which is what I do when it comes to a rapid spinner (I stop the whole process and start Sludgebombing because another Leech Seed would be useless at this point)or if your just trying to do some damage. OR! You can increase the process of Sub and Protect by trying to go for a Poison and increasing the enemies health depletion. You could just use Toxic, but when it comes to an enemy with status removing move or ability then Toxic is basically rendered useless and plus you really can't dish out damage. The whole point of this process is to stall the enemy into letting their health deplete gradually while also recovering your own. Hope this was helpful!
