Weezing actually has made appearances in the competitive scene over the years, especially now. Weezing even gained a new Galarian form in Sword and Shield. And it’s quite good, dawning a new typing and move set.
Venusaur got the short end of the stick with the North American release of Pokemon Red & Blue. Once a neglected starter, now an unforgettable Pokemon. Gaining multiple forms throughout the years, like a Mega form and a Gigantamax form. There’s something missing there though (Pokemon Green). However, Venusaur is now a beloved member of Generation I. Game Freak just wanted to see Venusaur fail.
