Hey guys Abel back again with one of my favorite underrated Pokémon, Vileplume! Vileplume is often overlooked as a defensive grass type because of the sheer bulk and access to regenerator of the Pokémon that are Tangrowth and Amoongus, however Vileplume has access to something they don't! The wonderful move that is Strength sap! Strength sap allows Vileplume to reduce the attack stat of any physical attacker that makes contact with it while also healing HP.

Now on to what makes this set tick. First of all a bold nature with full investment in defense and 248 IVs in HP gives Vileplume the bulk it needs to act as a defensive pivot. Effect spore is the ability of choice since the 30% chance of status on contact can cripple one of our opponents threats and black sludge paired with giga drain and strength sap gives Vileplume the recovery it needs to stay healthy as long as possible. The leftover IVs are put into special attack just to give a boost to Vileplume's stab attacks.

Strength sap is the key move of this set. A recovery move that isn't affected by an opponent's unfavorable weather condition is huge for a Pokémon that used to have to rely on moonlight, plus the attack drop can be enough to force a switch out. Sludge bomb is the main STAB option for Vileplume as it does decent damage and has a chance to poison. Giga drain is our secondary stab and completes the recovery package. Lastly sleep powder is used a utility option against switch ins that would normally wall Vileplume or try to use it as setup fodder and it lets us potentially get a free turn to swap to a setup sweeper of our own.

Specially bulky water types for a nice defensive core with Vileplume as they cover the weakness to fire and ice and many of them can provide hazard removal for the team with either rapid spin or defog. Heatran is a great partner for Vileplume as they cover each others resistances nicely and Heatran can deal with the steel types that wall this particular Vileplume build.

Vileplume can also function decently as a sun sweeper. access to chlorophyll and a respectable 110 base special attack stat paired with a modest nature and growth can make it a decent threat on sun teams.

In closing a would like to make a very special Thank You to Shiinotic. For letting Vileplume use its signature move and just being a fun guy in general. Thanks for reading, Abel
