Who remembers this screaming monster from the anime who always decided to snack on James' head whenever he had the chance? Everyone? Okay, now which of you actually used it on your team? If you answered that you didn't use Victreebel on your team, you're hardly alone; Victreebel isn't the most popular pick for a grass type, especially not now, when you have access to the entire world of Pokémon at your fingertips and you can pick countless other Pokémon.
However, Victreebel did have its uses and it still does in its own, odd, terrifying sort of way. It's a dandy Pokémon to have on a Sun-based team, as in a Pokémon using Sunny Day and then the battle continues with that weather effect. It helps Victreebel make up for it's not so great speed and helps strengthen moves it has like Weather Ball. It's also a dangerous Sludge Bomb thrower and in that sunny weather, well, its solar Beam is terrifying to behold. With the right team, Victreebel can be a monster; it's just a matter of putting it on a sun team, since otherwise it doesn't function very well outside of it.
