I detest Grass types. I'm not a player who enjoys all the set-up that Grass types have, I hate using Status, I generally only use attack. This means that Grass types are pretty useless to me. I find them annoying to use.
The only Gen I used a Grass type was the 3rd, when Treecko arrived. His physical stats meant I liked him (although not nearly as much as Torchic and Mudkip). I actually used Treecko in my Platinum playthrough (Level 1 traded straight from Diamond as soon as I could) and he was a powerful member of my team. But aside from him and a few exceptions (Tropius, Roserade [I have no idea why I used her...]) Grass Pokemon never make it on my team.

I also hate them because of their ridiculously high amount of weaknesses. Pure Grass types have 5 weaknesses, a number which is only equalled by Rock. Rock has got some saving graces, because they generally have high difference, look pretty good and have a good moveset. They are the only type to be weak to another useless type in my opinion- Poison (It gives a rubbish little status... and isn't good for much else) so that makes them totally useless...

Tbh, I like grass types, but only with specific moves. I hate how most of their moves are super weak or are status moves.
Pokemon that double as grass and poison are great for battling though.

Too many weaknesses, can't seem to learn very wide movesets (different types and all). Looks-wise many of them are pretty good, but eh when it comes to battling.

weaknesses =/= a bad defensive type

competitively speaking, grass types hold three key resistances: water, electric, and ground. they're weak to flying, poison, bug, fire, and ice. flying is a very uncommon attacking type, poison is almost a non issue, the only really common bug type move is u-turn, and the other two are worth it because resistances to thre of the most common attacking types make up for it

i'm sorry, but, anyone who says grass is a bad defensive type just because it has weaknesses is just being dumb

Gen 5, please? :3



The only Grass-types I like are Ludicolo, Breloom and Virizion. And I think Snover and Bulbasaur are both adooooooorable. But Grass-types have a plethora of weaknesses, so that pretty much ruins any chance I'll be running one when I challenge Red.

I love Grass types because of their status-inflicting moves and long-range attacks. Take Cottonee/Whimsicott, for example. I usually have it learn Leech Seed, Poison Powder, Energy Ball/Hurricane, and Cotton Guard. That way, I can raise its defense three stages, suck HP from the opponent, and weaken the opponent with Poison all in one turn grin.gif I like having all the technical moves that grass types possess. It makes battling a lot more fun.

I don't hate Grass types, I just thought that most of them have a really bad stats (and have a lot of weaknesses). I used Snivy on White and just... ugh. :/
The only Grass type I used was Breloom... I think. xD

The Favs



I love Shaymin to death, as well as Treecko, Roserade, Cacnea, and Cacturne. What really gets me to hate Grass Types is the fact that...well...they've been my mortal enemy since the start of my Pokemon journey, save for FireRed and Emerald.

Totodile- owned by Chikorita
Piplup- destroyed by Turtwig
Oshawott- gets its butt kicked by Snivy ALL. THE. TIME.

Me and Grass types are like...Romeo and Juliet's families. P: We just don't get along.

And, I had a really bad experience with Sceptile. A year after I got to the EF, I failed miserably. I ditched the game and when I came back, Sceptiled failed again! I was broke, none of my Pokemon were good enough, and I decided to restart with Torchic (I despise Mudkip). Best choice ever. Besides Bulbasaur and Treecko, all the Grass Types are ugly and pointless, especially Snivy. That thing just needs to rot in a hole.

I don't hate grass types, I just don't usually use them. Most of my starters have either been water or fire types except for in Black where I got a Snivy. I do have a Roserade in Platinum, but it has little use other than to help catch Pokemon or to get rid of a Water/Ground type. And to be honest, Serperior isn't super spectacular either, so I usually end up having to over train him so that he remains useful.
Grass types don't have as versatile a move set in most cases compared to say a Water or Fire type. They're really not very useful in game, save for a gym or two. And they're just a pain to raise in general because you have to put so much more time and effort into it just so that they remain useful. Too much work, not that great of a reward. :/

I don't dislike them, I just tend to prefer other types over them. I always have a water type and an electric type which basically covers their strengths. They're usually good for inflicting status conditions, but I don't usually need that.

Even if I plan to have one, I usually end up replacing it with something more useful and easier to raise. They mostly learn grass or poison type moves that don't cover a lot of extra bases. I like Pokemon that can learn at least one good move from at least four types, and grass types just don't fit that.

Their designs are so awesome though. noes.gif

Other than Shaymin with it's Chia pet uberness and Celebi, most grass types have terrible stat distribution and run-of-the-mill move pools..
They aren't really anything spectacular..
If I'm not mistaken the Pokemon with the most type disadvantages happens to be part grass type.. Snover.
The grass type starters are always the 'hard mode' on the Pokemon games as well.. since they have so many disadvantages.

The only good ones I can think of are Torterra, Sceptile and Roserade, not counting the two legends mentioned above..
Which is an extremely slim number out of the.. roughly 58 grass types. >:


Actually, Grass-types were the EASY mode since RBY. Water-types were the MEDIUM, Fire-types were the HARD.



Actually on yellow, where you can acquire the 3 normal starters I had the most trouble leveling up my bulbasaur and the least with charmander.
