What is a good competitive moveset for Venomoth? These builds have been optimized for Pokemon competing in Gold/Silver Single Battles. The movesets and EVs have been specifically calibrated to deal the most amount of damage to the largest group of potentially common opponents and typing threats for the Gold/Silver generation metagame.
Venomoth is a phenomenal Bug and Poison-typed Pokemon. It's pretty standard to see Venomoth show up as a Gold/Silver opponent. This Pokemon deserves to see more play in the meta. There were no known abilities back in the Gold/Silver Pokemon games. Venomoth is weak to Fire, Flying, Psychic, and Rock-typed attacks.
Venomoth is a remarkable Special Sweeper. It was designed to take down the opponent's team with high-damaging special attacks. In the old days before Generation IV, a move's damage category was determined by its type.
♦ Psychic is a special 90-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to lower the target's special defense by 1 stage). ♦ Psybeam is a special 65-base power Psychic-type move (10% chance to confuse the target). ♦ Solar Beam is a special 120-base power Grass-type move (charges turn 1. hits turn 2. no charge in sunlight). ♦ Giga Drain is a special 60-base power Grass-type move (Venomoth recovers 50% of the damage dealt). ♦ Thief is a special 40-base power Dark-type move (if your Venomoth has no item, it steals the target's). ♦ Protect is a status move (prevents moves from affecting your Venomoth this turn).

Wondering what moves can Venomoth learn? Here is the list of moves this Pokemon can learn in this selected generation. Sort and organize the learnset by move type, category, accuracy, and power. Bolded moves will gain the same-type attack bonus (STAB) if this Pokemon uses them.
Category Filter: Filter movelist to show only Physical, Special, or Status moves
Extended Move Details:Additional move information such as Risk versus Reward Statistics or Move power versus specific type-matchups
Type-matchup: Sort through and determine which moves would best work versus an opponent of the typing you select.
Note: The damage listed here under Versus is not actually calculated using the in-game damage formula. It is simply calculated using typing weaknesses and resistances from the selected type-matchup modifier along with STAB (if applied) to help sort through and give a general idea as to how powerful certain moves might be towards that selected typing after modifiers are applied. Several moves listed here may have additional effects that might alter actual damage output which are not factored on this specific list. Use damage calculators to find actual damage amounts.
