Pokemon Go: Top Counters for Mega Venusaur

Mega Evolution is officially part of Pokemon Go, and now players will have more work to do. Mega Evolution updated added Mega Energy and Mega Pokemon in the game. To get both of these things, players have to perform different tasks. To evolve a Pokemon in Mega form, players require Mega Energy. It means without Mega Energy, players can’t turn their Pokemon in Mega form. Mega Energy can be earned through playing Mega Raids, but players have to defeat Mega Evolved Pokemon like Mega Venusaur, Mega Blastoise, Mega Charizard X, and Mega Charizard Y.

Among all these available Mega Pokemon, Mega Venusaur is one of the toughest Pokemon. Because it’s a Grass/Poison-type Pokemon, its defense and offense, both are high. Grass-type Pokemon are resistant to several types of attacks. However, some specific Pokemon and attacks can easily take down Mega Venusaur. Remember to invite at least 4 friends to defeat Mega Venusaur. For a total of 3 or 4 players, it might get hard to beat Venusaur in the available time.


Mega Venusaur is weak against Flying, Psychic, Ice, and Fire-type attacks. However, if you use Fire-type Pokemon, be aware of the “Sludge Bomb” attacks. It’s a poison attack, and it can damage the Fire-type Pokemon a lot. So here is the list of some most powerful Pokemon against Mega Venusaur:

  • Mewtwo (Psychic-type attacks)
  • Moltres (Fire Spin/Sky Attack)
  • Darmanitan (Fire Fang/Overheat)
  • Mega Charizard X/Y (Fire-type attacks)
  • Heatran (Fire Spin/Flamethrower)
  • Latios (Zen Headbutt/Psychic)

So these are the most powerful counter Pokemon and attacks against Mega Venusaur. However, if any trainer doesn’t carry these Pokemon with them, they can try the alternative option as well. The best thing a trainer can do here is to use their best Fire and Flying-type Pokemon. Make sure they all have Fire and Flying-type attacks to deal more damage to Venusaur.

The great thing about Mega Raid battles is that single or double players can’t easily defeat it. So when multiple friends join in a single Raid Battle, they earn additional rewards and earn extra experience as well.  After winning the Raid, the results show how much time players took to win the battle. So if trainers take less time to win the battle, they earn higher Mega Energy. To evolve Venusaur in Mega Venusaur trainers don’t need normal candies. It just requires Mega Energy that players obtain after defeating Mega Venusaur.

Every Pokemon needs its specific Mega Energy to evolve in Mega form. However, every Pokemon can’t turn in Mega form.  There are few specific Pokemon in the game that can turn in Mega form, but right now only 5 Mega Pokemon has launched. Players who have been playing Pokemon Go for a long time know for how long they were waiting for Mega Evolution. Indeed, Mega Evolution is a successful update, but trainers are not happy with some restrictions.

Some restrictions like trainers can only Mega Evolve one Pokemon at a time and it will last only for 4 hours. These are the restrictions that are making the trainers worried, and that’s why they are not putting extra attention to Mega Raids. It’s a great opportunity for trainers to try out what’s new, but it is also important for the developers to offer what their fans truly desire.

Similar to 5-star Raids, Mega Raid battles are also action-packed. Niantic has confirmed that they will provide new Raid bosses in September, so if any player doesn’t have the current higher tier raid Pokemon, they should try to hit a catch powerhouse. Mega Venusaur, Mega Blastoise, and Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y all are completely insane in Raid Battles.

After turning a Pokemon in Mega form, you can use it in Raid Battle for 4 hours. In raid battles, after turning the Pokemon in Mega form, their CP and abilities become extremely powerful that can be helpful in Mega Raid battle too. You can do multiple Raid Battles in Mega Raid while using the Mega form. The mega form of Pokemon lasts for 4 hours, so it will help the trainers to deal more damage to Mega Raid Boss.


Mega Evolution brought new content into the game. Along with Mega Raids, players can gather Mega Energy to evolve their normal Pokemon in Mega form. Right now, a few Mega Pokemon are available, but Niantic has confirmed that they will launch more Pokemon in the future. In September, more Legendary Pokemon will appear in 5-star Raids, so it’s the right time to power up the existing Pokemon.
