Victreebel, the Flycatcher Pokemon. It lures prey with the sweet aroma of honey. Swallowed whole, the prey is melted in a day, bones and all. Acid that has dissolved many prey becomes sweeter, making it even more effective at attracting prey. 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. It pools in its mouth a fluid with a honey like scent, which is really an acid that dissolves anything.
Ah yes, Victreebel, a classic, original 151 pokemon. I'm sure we all remember James' Victreebel from the original pokemon season, yeah? Good times... The real question though, is why wasn't James melted alive? ... We may never know.
Anyways, I'm pretty indifferent to Victreebel. The Flycatcher Pokemon is indeed a classic, being based off flytrap plants, but Poison types and Grass types aren't really my thing. Still, those dex entries are awesome. Pokemon has never been so sadistic. ;D
In a competitive aspect, Victreebel took a huge blow from RSE to DPP. He can no longer physically sweep effectively, and his movepool is the generic, crappy Grass/Poison scenario. His speed is low as well, and he need Sunny Day support to function as a sweeper; his only (poor) calling. Since many Grass/Poison types do his job better, he's stuck in NU. Basically, he's not a very good pokemon at all.
Now then, what's your opinion on Victreebel?
