Pokemon's First Appearance: Pokemon Red, Blue & Yellow

Ah, Venusaur. Most of us grew up with this half Grass, half Poison Pokemon, and were beyond excited to use its Solar Beam attack against all of our opponents. (Regardless of if they were resistant to Grass attacks or not.) With a base stat total of 525 and good power, stamina and speed, Venusaur is an undeniably good Pokemon. But its lack of varied non-damaging and damaging attacks, and it being weak against Flying, Fire, Psychic and Ice attacks, takes away from its badass-ness. We're sorry to you Venusaur enthusiasts out there, but it's not the best Pokemon out there.
