June 2022: The Mega Venusaur Raid Guide for Pokemon GO Players

TheCrossover Event is now live in Right now, many of the raids happening feature species that appear in the upcoming expansion based on the game that will be released on July 1st. This includes Venusaur in Mega Raids. With this Raid Guide, you can prepare a team to take on Mega Venusaur and refine your catch strategy.

Top Mega Venusaur Counters

Pokebattler, who estimates all of the possible Pokemon and moves, lists the top 10 Mega Venusaur counters as such:

  • Shadow Mewtwo (Confusion, Psystrike)
  • Mega Charizard Y (Fire Spin, Blast Burn)
  • Mewtwo (Confusion, Psystrike)
  • Shadow Moltres (Fire Spin, Sky Attack)
  • Mega Latios (Zen Headbutt, Psychic)
  • Shadow Ho-Oh (Incinerate, Brave Bird)
  • Shadow Metagross (Zen Headbutt, Psychic)
  • Mega Charizard X (Fire Spin, Blast Burn)
  • Reshiram (Fire Fang, Overheat)
  • Shadow Entei (Fire Fang, Overheat)

Although it is recommended to power up your counters as much as possible, creating a huge amount of powerful Shadow Pokemon with their moves unlocked is a very fine task for beginners. Here are ten additional non-Shadow and non-Mega counters that can help defeat Venusaur with efficiency.

  • Hoopa Unbound (Confusion, Psychic)
  • Apex Purified Ho-Oh (Incinerate, Sacred Fire++)
  • Moltres (Fire Spin, Sky Attack)
  • Latios (Zen Headbutt, Psychic)
  • Apex Purified Lugia (Extrasensory, Aeroblast++)
  • Heatran (Fire Spin, Flamethrower)
  • Chandelure (Fire Spin, Overheat)
  • Metagross (Zen Headbutt, Psychic)
  • Victini (Confusion, V Create)
  • Darmanitan (Fire Fang, Overheat)

How Many Trainers Are Needed?

For the first time now that the Mega Raids have been added to Tier Four, you may use two trainers. If you cannot guarantee the top counters with a maxed-out CP and the best moves, your best bet is to make sure you have three or more players.

Along with Golden Razz Berries, a Circle Lock technique to guarantee excellent or excellent throws is the best way to catch Pokemon. However, since Venusaur is an evolved form, it will offer more Bulbasaur Candy when caught using Pinap Berries. I''d suggest using Pinap Berries for the first few throw attempts.

Shiny Odds

Mega-capable Pokemon have a Shiny rate of approximately one in 60. Happy raiding, ladies!
