On another none I sincerely expected a higher usage of Snovers, due to the amount of Hail teams. Maybe that's because this style is somewhat new to the tier though.
As always, thanks for the statistics Doug.
Yeah, Venusaur is awesome Pokemon in UU, but Roserade's promotion to OU must be slightly responsible for this usage increase.
However, even when Roserade was in the tier, Venusaur was still used a fair amount.
But the same thing happened with Roserade when Shaymin got banned. And perhaps, if Venusaur ever gets banned, or becomes OU, something like Sceptile or Vileplume may see a usage increase.
