    Ever since I got a Bulbasaur in a trade in Crystal, Venusaur has been my favorite starter evolution. Hell, I have 5 of them in Diamond.

    Torterra has never worked for me :P

    I'm not really going to argue about this, since it's merely a matter of preference.
    This isn't an argument. As far as I'm concerned, this is a conversation. You're allowed to like whichever one you want. That's why I made this thread in the first place. I was just merely pointing out that Venusaur's not worse than Torterra. I'd do the same for Torterra if our roles were reversed.

    My team was obviously a joke team composed of popular NFE's. I honestly expected to be KO'd 6-0 but was very pleasantly surprised when my three Starters KO'd half my opponent's team. I ended up losing to a Breloom that kept Sporing my Pokemon and killing them with Focus Punch. Even then, Ivysaur (my last member) put up a good fight before going down.

    I think that Torterra can use the move Fire Fang... I doubt that though.

    He can't. If he could, that would be epic. Of course, if Torterra could use Fire Fang, then I'd demand Venusaur got Flamethrower, Meganium got Fire Blast, Sceptile got Blaze Kick and Jaroda got Overheat.

    I think he can't learn that. It would be very cool, though.

    Yeah, Grass types need to learn Fire type moves. It's not fair that a lot of Fire types get Grass Knot but not a single Grass type gets Flamethrower.

    Let's see: Venusaur has less weaknesses but a limited movepool, while Torterra has a better movepool but more weaknesses. I may have to vote for Venusaur on this one because of its DW ability. Also, Grass types learning ground type moves make more sense than them learning fire type moves.

    Both great designs in my opinion, though Venusaur has Torterra beat by a small margin. Decent type combos, I think, though I'd rather be weak to bug than to psychic. Offensively, though, it comes down to sleep powder vs. mega drain for me. I'm going to go with mega drain by a narrow margin, putting them dead even again. However speed is important to me, which is greater in Venusaur. It's a close call, but I'll go with Venusaur over Torterra.

    Well, grass types are doing better than fire types right now as long as the competitive scene is concerned.

    I prefer venusaur. It was my first starter and definitely the stronger of the 2.

    Yes, actually. Unless you have some reasoning to prove otherwise.

    Design-wise:
    The "plant on back" concept was better executed on the Torterra Line imho.

    Stat-wise:
    I could actually go either way. Both are very good theoretically.

    In battle:
    I prefer going with a Chlorophyll Venusaur really, Torterra's got too many weaknesses to be hanging around for too long.

    Torterra's Earthquake >>>>>>>>>>> Venusaur's Sludge Bomb

    Anyways , I choose Torterra , I prefer his design and Grass/Poison is an overused type-combination while Grass/Ground is actually unique.

    I just realized how you can take that wrong....

    Yes.

    Venusaur is still better. And he would still win.
