Can someone do a comparison with the pros and cons between these three bulky grass types? Just a general comparison between the three

Which game are you playing? What do you want to do with them? Do you want to battle other people, in-game trainers, or something else?
Oras and usum. For wifi battles

I'll give it a go:


  • Sets up hazards (Spikes, Stealth Rock)
  • Can tank Hydro Pumps from even Specs Ash-Gren and force it out
  • Can deal huge damage via STAB Power Whip and STAB Gyro Ball
  • Has access to many utility moves such as Knock Off
  • Easy to splash onto any team, works wonders, need very little effort to use properly
  • Has access to recovery via Leech Seed
  • Rocky Helmet + Iron Barbs makes it a great counter to physical attackers


  • Shines in Sun teams with Chlorophyll with Growth + Giga Drain + HP Fire/Earthquake + Sludge Bomb
  • Mega Venusaur can tank Fire, Ice, and Water hits well due to Thick Fat
  • Access to recovery via Leech Seed, Giga Drain
  • Absorbs Toxic Spikes on switch in
  • Threatens with Sleep Powder + Substitute + Leech Seed combo
  • More offensively based movepool, access to fewer utility moves
  • Slightly more difficult to use, faces strong threat from Tapu Lele, Volcarona and few other staples
  • Great against Tapu Bulu


  • Great Sponge/Wall due to great defensive bulk
  • Access to Leech Seed and Giga Drain, as well as Knock Off and Earthquake
  • Can pull off a great Assault Vest set, as well as Rocky Helmet
  • Has the ability Regenerator, making for a fantastic pivot used to shut down common offensive threats and shift the momentum to your side
  • Slightly more difficult to play with, needs some level of prediction to accurately switch in and around, focuses on pivoting rather than set up or stall like the other two

Just a very general glance-over at the 3, haven't really sorted the points in pros and cons, just a basic breakdown of how they perform.
Thanks. It may not have the pros and cons organized but it really isn't hard to figure out
