Victreebel is a Grass & Poison Pokémon which evolves from Weepinbell. It is vulnerable to Flying, Fire, Psychic and Ice moves. Victreebel's strongest moveset is Razor Leaf & Solar Beam and it has a Max CP of 2,431.
"Victreebel has a long vine that extends from its head. This vine is waved and flicked about as if it were an animal to attract prey. When an unsuspecting prey draws near, this Pokémon swallows it whole."
Victreebel puts most of its work in just with Razor Leaf. It hits hard, but generates energy incredibly slowly. Leaf Blade, then, pairs with it fantastically, due to its low energy cost. Your second move barely matters, as it's very difficult to reach. Sludge Bomb is a strong Poison-type move that can deal a ton of damage if unshielded. Acid Spray, on the other hand, makes the bet that your opponent is going to shield no matter what, and reduces their defense significantly. This either allows Victreebel to Razor Leaf even harder, or at least sets up a better farm for your next Pokémon.
Victreebel is a glass cannon, with incredibly high fast move damage output. Its solid typing, high attack stat, and access to Leaf Blade makes it the second best Razor Leafer in the format. The first? Shadow Victreebel, which just does the role better.
In Ultra, Victreebel is a little bit weaker than in Great. Its attack-weighted stat distribution puts it at less of a disadvantage than it does in Great League, but its competition gets tougher, and the top threats handle it better.
Victreebel’s low CP cap prevents it from being competitive in Master League.
