Frenzy Plant generally isn't good in battles with real people (and not AI) because it gives the opponent one turn to do anything they'd like. It's really easy to take advantage of that free turn by using it to set up a sweep, switch in a very threatening Pokémon, etc. That could easily decide whether you win or lose right there. You essentially lose momentum, and that isn't a good thing. You're better off using a different Grass-type move, like Leaf Storm, Giga Drain, etc.
