Bayleef is a Grass Pokémon. It is vulnerable to Flying, Poison, Bug, Fire and Ice moves. Bayleef's strongest moveset is Razor Leaf & Grass Knot and it has a Max CP of 1,454. Bayleef evolves into Meganium.
"Bayleef's neck is ringed by curled-up leaves. Inside each tubular leaf is a small shoot of a tree. The fragrance of this shoot makes people peppy."
Razor Leaf solidifies Bayleef's role as a Grass-type and outputs incredible raw damage with STAB.
Ancient Power costs the least amount of energy among Bayleef's charge moves, covers four of Bayleef's weaknesses, and has a small chance to buff its stats significantly. Grass Knot is superior to Energy Ball, but may not always be needed since most of Bayleef's damage output comes from its fast move.
Bayleef is a decent pick for PvP, featuring good bulk, decent coverage, and high damage from its Razor Leaf. With a max CP of 1454, Bayleef becomes a rather expensive option for a Grass-type role as it needs to be powered up to level 40 to reach its full potential. Wins against Deoxys Defense Forme and Steelix are appreciated, while ties with Medicham and Cresselia depending on movesets still make Bayleef a competitive consideration. Overall a good pick, but due to the high cost and lack of Leaf Blade or Frenzy Plant, maybe consider other Grass Pokemon.
Bayleef doesn't have the stats for PvP outside of Great League. Consider other Pokemon instead.
