In this thread we post pictures of and discuss the best starter ever to walk the Pokemon world - Venusaur. This thread is for Venusaur only and is not meant to start a trend where we make threads for every other starter Pokemon.

Why Venusaur? Because grass Pokemon rock! Charmander is overused and everyone loves Squirtle, so go with Bulbasaur instead. Venusaur can learn Sleep Powder, Leech Seed, Razor Leaf, Body Slam, and Sword Dance in RBY, making him a much better Pokemon than Charizard and Blastoise, especially the latter. He is generally better than the other two later on as well and deserves a spot in every team! Not to mention he's way better looking than some ugly turtle or a sissy ass dragon. Here are some pictures:

Lol guess what. My friend got me playing Soul Silver and dared me to beat the game using only grass types. And who's my main man?

But he spent most of his life in Diamond inside the PC, so the nickname I gave him was stuck to "Bulba" haha. Anyway,

Thank you so much Krisp. It's about time Venusaur got some respect. After that nonsense in the Mascot PEC... Stupid Samurott and his hatred of Venusaur...

WHOA! Hey, It's natural. My first Pokemon experience was a Venusaur fainting on Red Version. I blacked out after that. Since I was like six at the time, and thought that the world revolved around me, I cried and turned it off. Then I gave it back to my brother and said, "Your Venusaur sucks. It died." Also, my username is Samurott. Crappy fully-evolved grass type starters are like my weakness. Exception being {sceptile} and {torterra}, who are not crappy. Meganium isn't the greatest either, but it is better than Serperior and way better than... Umm... Umm... Uhhhh... *Falls asleep. Ten minutes later* Oh. Where was I? Oh. Yeah. Better than Venusaur. Sorry Krisp. Not sorry, twist. If it makes you feel any better, Blastoise's days are numbered too. If you vote, you might be able to deliver the final blow on Blastoise!

Venusaur.

So awesome enough that his base form was automatically granted two types by default. No other starter shares this trait. And with sporting an immunity to both Toxic AND Leech Seed - while being able to fire off himself - he's easily the most devastating Pokemon in RBY. He just stands there and lols at you as he whittles your health away to nothing in a scant 3 turns.

Leftovers, eat your heart out.

Yeah.

You better run.

Regardless of what the Admins say, I still hate Venusaur. If it wasnt for Blastoise, I never wouldve started playing pokemon.

I'm not sure how I can top what Samurott's been saying; he's obviously the biggest Venusaur fan in the Pokeverse! All I can say is this-- When I got LeafGreen and my brother got FireRed, he would always brag about his Charizard (we each chose the versions' mascots). I would silently fume and train my Venusaur and wait for the day we got the cable or adapters we needed to trade and battle. The day came, and he was bragging about type effectiveness, moves, and other things. He landed a flamethrower and depleted my health quite a bit, but after a sleep powder, multiple Swords Dances (thank you mr. tutor man), a few SSynthesises to heal, and then double edge to put that sorry fire lizard out of it's misery.
I know, weak compared to Samurott's unending love, but still.

:roll:
Damnit.

Ok, I'm going to clean this up right now. I dont despise Venusaur, I just dont like it, basically.
It looks weird, has a plant, and Turtwig is a great retread of it because Turwig is actually a good pokemon.
Regardless of what your story is, there is my view and your. In RBY, Venusaur was nerfed up. Blastoise had an arsenal of fighting, normal, water, and other moves at its diposal. Venusaur didnt have that advantage. Besides, a plant?

Edoc'sil, two words. Shut up. It could be worse. For you, that is.

Venusaur is OU. Blastoise is not.

The only other starters that have been OU in recent history are Infernape and Swampert, the latter of whom was forced out due to Gastrodon.

Problem, Charizard?

@ulquiorra: It's spelt "Mein Führer", just so you know in future.

If I was Charizard, I'd cry too. I'd cry because Venusaur has a topic, but Charizard doesnt.

So Venusaur is the best of the three? Coming in an actual post from you? In case that was an accident, to show Venusaur is the worst, it's be Venusaur<Charizard<Blastoise.
