Aesthetically, Jaroda. But in battle, Venusaur rips Jaroda apart.
It's saddening Jaroda had such potential with its ability, but a godawful movepool and poor stat distribution was all GameFreak needed to do to shoot it down. Not to mention, Grass being the weakest type. They couldn't even give it a dual-typing.
say goodbye to sunshine, sunshine
I have never really liked any Grass starters except for Sceptile until Jaroda.
I prefer Jaroda.
Who's more useful?
I can't say that since I haven't used both, and I'm not competitive.
Who'd win in a fight? Venasaur.
As sad as it is, while Jaroda's a bro, Venasaur is a tank, and is the grass soldier you want in your Army. Jaroda's the cool guy behind the scenes, while Venasaur's the one out on the field doing the hard work.

he looks more badass than Venusuar. Yes, that's my only reason.
Ryou Bakura, Yami Bakura, and I live together in Lief's bedroom. Back off
Venusaur because it has sleep powder and a stabed sludge bomb witch would easly kill jaroda.
also it has a better move poll and typing.
also come on it has good def to with its 100 in spk.def and has 100 in spk attack and about 70-80 in most other stats
Also by far its my fav grass starter of all time!

While I grew up with the first generation starters, personally I've never like Venusaur. Don't get me wrong, I like Bulbasaur and Ivysaur but Venusaur just looked odd to me. Jaroda on the other hand looks pretty cool and not as bulky as other final evolved starters. Jaroda is also pretty speedy which is a plus point for me as I like speedy pokemon.
Grass has five weaknesses: Fire, Flying, Ice, Poison, Bug. While it does have plenty of powerful moves, it is also resisted by a whopping seven types. It has no good stat up moves but some pretty damn nice support/utility ones. Offensively, Grass is just a bad type.
Also, the Pokemon with the most weaknesses are all Grass types: Abomasnow, Exeggutor and Celebi (total of 7 weaknesses including one x4). The only Pokemon to ever have a x5 weakness is also part Grass (Parasect that have the Dry Skin ability).
Grass just isn't a very good type. Which sucks because it's by far my favorite type and most of my favorite Pokemon are Grass types. Still, facts are facts.

i choose venusaur. it can outspeed, and KO most jaroda's with sludge bomb
Venusaur @Life Orb
252 SpA/252 SpE/4 HP
Very deadly with proper support, like drougt ninetales, charizard as a sweeping partner, Sazandora to absorb psycic attacks, and forteress for raid spin and hazzards, you got a deadly pokemon. well thats more of
mya team now
Battle supremacy? Venusaur!
I can't say that Jaroda is more versatile than the big grass boss, because he isn't. Venusaur pawns the snake anytime.
Anyway, Venusaur is better because of a great double typing, a much wider movepool and excellent stat distributions. Also, he's got a plant growing out of his back. How epic is that?
