Life



Honestly speaking, I am not much of a grass type fan mainly because they don't have many good sprites... Torterra looks extremely bulky, and I never really got the idea of Carnevine... But disregarding everything else, my favorite grass type has to be Jumpluff. It is so useful, you have no idea how good it is until you really know how to annoy. And yes I have beaten an Infernape with a Jumpluff.

I really like grass types. I don't see how you can HATE any type of pokemon, really.

Pokemon I collect



I wouldn't say I hate them, I just dislike having to rely on them due to most grass types having horrible speed. Fortunately, certain Pokes are exception to this, but even so. I'll take my speedy fire types over them anyday~
Plus, as Zaloog said, their weaknesses are easily exploited, and their defenses can't always stand up to it.
Appearance-wise, though, there are some really cute ones. I have a Shaymin stylus for my DS. cat.gif

Hmm, well...Grass-types do have a lot of weaknesses to exploit, it is true. But I find some of them to be aesthetically pleasing, and somewhat useful in battle. (Treecko for the WIN.) Not to mention they score a surprise super-effective on that bane of all human existence: THE WATER TYPE. (I kid. Water is cool too.)

As for my favorites, well...

Hate Grass-types? Me? How could I hate my ninja Leafeon?

Actually, my only problem with Grass-types is the lack of variety in terms of color palettes. They're all shades of green with shades of gold for shinies. I get the summer-autumn theme, but pretty much every single Grass Pokemon is like that. A little more creativity on Game Freak's part would be appreciated by this fox.

I don't hate all grass types, but I just have a dislike for the type in general. Not that the Pokemon in it are lame (though a lot of them are.) My problem is that it's just so boring. So much weaker sounding then the other types.

It's been that way ever since the first gen games, for me.

Professor Oak: "This is Charmander, a fire-type!
(Charmander breathes fire)
Me: Ooooohhh!
Oak: "This is Squirtle, a water type!"
(Squirtle squirts water at Charmander, Charmander breathes fire back)
Me: Oooooohhh!
Oak: "And here's Bulbasaur, the grass-type."
(Bulbasaur has vines and leaves and other things that aren't nearly as cool as fire and water.)
Me: ...Yeah, I'mma go with the Charmander?
Oak: Yeah, that's what most people do...

To be honest, I used Bulbasaur on a later replay and it was pretty cool. Ivysaur's awesome in Brawl. I also like Roserade and Torterra, and when I was a kid I always wanted to catch a Sunkern. But all in all, you look at the other types and they all feel more powerful, more awesome. It's like... Flamethrowers! Thunderbolts! Mental destruction! Tidal waves! Blizzards, boulders, even the normal-type has body slams and hyper beams! And the grass type gets... really sharp leaves. The only cool sounding move they got back then has to charge up first. And then most Grass-types are overly cheery, often covered in boring flower motifs and such...

Let Us In



Even though I like using them, I certainly understand what people are saying when they mention that they have too many weaknesses and move pools that aren't very good. I was super upset at Sceptile's move pool in R/S/E. At least they let it learn Energy Ball in the recent generations.

Fire actually was intended to be the hardest. Look at how many caves, oceans, hikers, and swimmers are out there! I think that's why the last two generations gave the starter the fighting type, so that it could at least be strong against all of those hikers.

I always do extremely well with Torterra, Venusaur, and Leafeon because they have good defensive stats and (in my hands, at least) rarely get killed. I can survive Fire and Flying with them, and it takes an Ice type to actually put them down.

I think the cool thing about Grass types is that you can beat someone with an improbable weapon. I love the "More-than-meets-the-eye" aspect of it. Actually, when I first saw the move Frenzy Plant, I thought it was displaying rapidly growing vines that surround the foe, choke it, and pierce it's skin. My first thought was "That's...dark...but awesome!" I always envisioned Grass types to be like deadly jungle plants, not cute, domestic house plants(even though a fair number are modeled as such).

I also agree with FourTaledKitsune. They do need to diversify them some more.

Also true: I, too, had no idea so many people hated them. o.O

Grass types are alright.... many lack in Speed. Yet if they have alot of speed they aren't very good in attacking. I usually use them as an annoyer. E.g Sleeping, Leech Seeding etc happy.gif

They're too slow and weak dry.gif the only exceptions (In my opinion) are grovile, shaymin and celebi.

The Team



Competetive play lead to a hate of grass types just because most are pretty unusable.
Stats are only ok at best. Movepools predictable with nothing super amazing.

However, I love most of the designs and that's what matters most to me.
I love my Roserade. Haters gonna hate.

I think people hate them because they are weak against so many things.

Ice, fire, flying, psychic, poison, bug, dragon, and steel types all can destroy grass types.

Personally, I don't hate grass types. But I don't find them strong or such either. The only grass type that is okay with being in my party is Torterra. Even though it had a 4x weakness to ice, I find it very powerful.
