Based solely on Venonat's sprite, you'd think he's a dumpy, worthless Bug Pokemon not fit for battle. Heck, someone in our office even claims they heard someone call another gamer a "Venonat fan," and mean it as an insult. These statements are all rather uninformed, as Natty's status moves are top of the line and aided by its accuracy-increasing Compoundeyes ability. It's a long wait until Venomoth, but you could easily do worse.
