wave.gif Hello, I'm here to debate weather grass haters are true grass haters or not. I've allways loved grass types. But I realized lots of people don't like them. Why is this? confused.gif I think bulbasaur is cute. love.gif And what about shaymin, it's a grass type too, then how can so many people be infatchated with it? If anybody is out there listening to me, can you tell me why lots of people hate grass types? :(And if you hate grass types mabe you should rethink thier advantages.

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. >:

My very first grass type was bulbasaur. Ever since then I loved grass types. All grass types are unique. Just like all the other types in the pokemon world. I always chose grass types as the starter exept treco, it's kind of ugly.

Celebi rulz!!!! blargagh.gif

I've never liked Grass-types that much. I almost always choose the Fire starters, so Grass-types just come over as weak to me. The Grass starter's are okay, but I don't care for plants in general, so I don't like many others. I love Shaymin, though. And Celebi's cute.

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

Not in Generation II
Since the first gym has flying type good luck with Chikorita...

I always disliked using early caught grasstypes since there were so few who had any good moves...
I caught a Budew in Platinum, it had Mega Drain and Bullet Seed as its STAB moves and they sucked...unless I fought a Pokčmon weak to grass...and it had no other good moves either so I boxed it pretty early facepalm.gif
After battling Elite Four once more however I started to realize maybe having a grass type wasn't such a bad idea still...since Ground/Water types aren't too rare, (Whiscash, Quagsire and Swampert) so I started training a Sceptile.
At least Leaf Blade isn't bad for a grass-move:3 (Grass types are mostly just a pain in the ass to train from scratch XD)

I don't hate them, but they're pretty useless unless you're facing a Ground-type. Tropius is my favourite grass type Pokemon. tropius.gif

For example, I KO'd Jasmine on Gold with my Meganium. Her Steelix seriously sucks.

Actually, my Chinchou was of more use, but whatever.

IMPORTANCE:




This Pokémon looks rather hungry.. it cannot mature as fast unless it is fed.
Would you like to give it a berry?

Which berry would you like to feed it?

He is a Corrupted pokemon, even though he wants to eat you, you should always feed him and show him love. Click him to learn more.

I'm guessing it's because they have so many weaknesses. Also, people like fire types so much, so yeah. I myself don't hate grass types (I mean c'mon, I'd have to hate these guys if I did ---> treecko.gif grovyle.gif sceptile.gif leafeon.gif celebi.gif shaymin.gif (not the only ones I like but definitely my faves)

I mean I normally didn't pick grass types for starters until 3rd gen, but that didn't mean I didn't like them. And they're very useful when you start running into Quagsires and even worse Swamperts.

Grass Knot + STAB + Super Effective = NIIIIICE

I like grass types, but I don't choose the starters because fire types seem better to me.

A fire/grass combo is nice, I just send the grass against whatever could harm my fire, and my fire at what can harm my grass.

Excluding Shaymin, I like:

Roserade
The Bulbasaur family (Even though I tend to choose Charmander )
Vileplume

I don't like Toterra because some people I know say it's better than Infernape. IT IS NOT D<

I don't use grass Pokemon mostly because there weakness are to easily exploited and only have a few cool type combinations. I've only ever chosen 1 grass starter and that was Treecko. Fire and water types always appealed to me more.

I don't really care for them. The only ones I actually like are Bulbasaur and his line of evos.
