I agree Hikari, it's exceptionally small. I was surprised when I saw it in the anime and in the recent games. I was expecting it to be a bit larger in size, so now I don't use it cause it looks weak. shallow much ;x

I use her in my team all the time, apart from scramble challenges, although I ended up using one in my crystal scramble challenge. I think Gen 5 bought some good grass pokemon in as well such as Liligant, Serperior, Whimsicott and Ferroseed.

Yeah I agree, I think Gen V as really up the anti when it comes to grass types comeptitively since in previous generations they didn't make up even a fraction of the majority of common pokemon used. I think that's one of the very few positive things Gen V brought to pokemon.

Bet you didn't know that even though Roselia looks medium-sized in the anime, its actual height is 1'00".

In the anime, Roselia's height comes up to the waist of an average 10-year-old Pokemon Trainer. I was surprised when I found out it was so tiny...

I love the fact that Bellossom loses its Poison type when it evolves. It's nice to see a pure Grass-type for a change. :D

Yeah, I was quite surprised about Roselia's size too. It's in-game sprite doesn't do it justice. >:( I initially thought Roselia is about the size of its evolution, Roserade.

Helloooo! Can this grass enthusiast join this awesome cluuuuuub?

Name: Meganium90
Partner Pokemon: [OMG THIS IS SHOCKING. Not going for Meganium. Why? I know it's my favorite, but right now I am obsessed with the Pokemon Leavanny. <3] I'm choosing Leavanny!
Reason for joining: I've loved grass-types since I started playing Pokemon. The Chikorita line was the first few grass-types that I ever liked. And today I learn to appreciate every single grass-type out there, especially the 5th generation grass-types.

If you were to be able to adopt any feature or characteristic of a grass type pokemon, what would it be and why?

I'll have to go with Curious' response and use the ability to recover in sunlight. Without sunlight, It'd be difficult for me to fight back when in battle, or use my attacks. For grass-types, the sun is like... our best friend. xD

Hi Megan, how nice for one of our fave mods to join.

I love Leavanny, it's got a cute face and it's really helpful.

I'll commemorate your arrival with some pics of the beloved Leavanny:

Hey Megan! Pssssht, why do you need to even ask that question? Of course you can! Haha, sure consider Leavanny yours. I have currently a Leavanny in my team on Black, nicknamed Anthea (you can thank Alex for the name) and she's the strongest in my team, especially useful for all sort of situations, plus she's gorgeous! Haha. Yeah, I agree, grass types have come a long way, especially with the Gen V pokes, since like I mentioned earlier they've been given some extra kick this generation round and can now prove to be quite the tricky opponent, competitive-wise. Also true, without the sun grass types are mostly rendered useless unless of course we use sunny day, haha.

Reason For Joining - Grass types are one of my personal favorite types nowadays due to how flexible yet fun they are in battle if you ask me, that and they tend to have kickass designs as well.

If you were to be able to adopt any feature or characteristic of a grass type pokemon, what would it be and why? - Oh that's easy, the vines of a Ferrothorn or Venusaur since they're like an extra set of limbs which can prove to be very useful in everyday life lol.

Hope I can join this club.

Hey Xulek, welcome! Mmm, they're pretty fun to use, I agree and they can also give the trainer a great deal of satisfaction especially when one beats Bugsy in G/S/C, HG/SS, haha oh the pain, the countless re-battles. Well, my bayleef eventually overcame the devilish scyther and its furry cutter. ;o;

Mind if I start a new topic? c:

Which Grass Pokemon do you think has the most interesting typing?


Personally I think Ferrothorn has a very interesting typing; but it's not something I'd want to use. The Ludicolo family's Grass/Water typing it quite interesting and gives a lot to work with, but I wouldn't say these two types compliment each other too well. I think the Grass/Bug typing carried by the Sewaddle family is very interesting and great to use, but is also carried by two other families so its not really unique. The Grass/Psychic typing of the Exeggutor family is also very interesting and supplies a lot of wonderful strategies to use; although honestly I never really understood why they were Psychic xD

Feel more than welcome. c:

I agree with you there with Ferrothorn, I was actually quite surprised with its unique typing since I couldn't picture a Pokemon with such. I don't thknk Grass and Steel types are a good mix to be honest, I don't know why, but it just feels strange having a dual typing like that.

Which Grass Pokemon do you think has the most interesting typing?


Simple is as simple does. I personally think there are to many Grass and Poison types. But then again, how many people are actually allergic to Grass/Plants and whatnot in real life? Could be explainable. But the most interesting typing? Okay let's talk about a little interesting sort of thing:

Normal types is usually its own mono-type or usually with a flying type. Not to mention we have Girafarig which is Normal and Psychic. Now, a 4-legged Pokemon as a Normal type has a unique combination of typing. Back on topic, who else is also a 4 legged Pokemon as a Normal type who has a unique typing? Take a guess before checking the spoiler:
Spoiler:


That's right, Deerling and Sawsbuck, a Normal/Grass type.


Hope that little trivia was interesting. lol


You don't often find a unique typing which can be an annoying for opponents. Ludicolo is no exception. Water and Grass type can deal a great pain to anyone's Pokemon.

Breloom is definitely unique. Really, what kind of Grass can actually fight? lol Anyway, Grass and Fighting type is definitely an interesting combination. And I don't want to leave out Virizion who's got not only an interesting typing, but an interesting design.

Though the 4x weakness to Flying isn't quite a fan favorite for these two.

Like some mentioned before, Ferrothorn is an interesting one.
Although I don't find him to be any different than Forretress in terms of a strategic battle. Both are 4x weak to Fire as well. Grass and Steel combination are a strange one, but Ferrothorn has proven from time to time to be one of those dangerous Pokemon out there, let alone a very annoying one.

Well there are Grass that grows out of rock or is connected to it in some ways. I've seen them in real life. But to be a fossil Pokemon makes in interesting. Grass/Rock combination, in my opinion, is definitely a rare and interesting one as well.

I'm going to choose a legendary and say Virizion and Breloom. There aren't that many Grass/Fighting types out there. The biggest factor is the flying-type weakness so I'll have to agree with Sector. Not only these Pokemon learn special attacks like Grass, but you're also learning primary physical attacks. So, it's nice to get the best of both worlds.

Grass/Water like the Lotad line is really interesting...we need more Pokemon like that imo!

There's a few that deserve a mention. Grass has been paired with so many types.


Deerling & Sawsbuck
Apart from the seasonal differences in appearance, these deers' typing sure is an interesting one. Normal/Grass may come with an unfortunate mix of weaknesses (Fire, Flying, Bug, Ice, Poison, Fighting) but I loved using this deer on my Black team cos of the nice STAB Return it gets and it learns Jump Kick and Megahorn too.


Torterra
Torterra definitely has a quirky typing, but the 4x Ice weakness is a letdown, not to mention its sluggish Speed stat. Grass/Ground is a type combo I've been wanting when Gen 4 was still in development. Still a total tank in-game though!


Rotom (Mow Form)
Gen 5 really did bring interesting types courtesy of Rotom's type editing. Grass/Electric is an interesting combo cos it cancels out the Ground weakness most Electric-types possess (even though Rotom has Levitate) not to mention it also cancels the Flying weakness you see on most Grass-types. I saw a fanmade Fakemon with this typing so I hope we might see another one with this typing in Gen 6.


Lotad, Lombre & Ludicolo
As Sector Revenge said, Water/Grass is a type combo that abuses people competitively. Due to this interesting typing, the Lotad line have very little in the way of weaknesses (weak to only Flying, Poison and Bug) and they have helpful abilities too.

Hey there Rykerr1, welcome nice choice of partner pokemon there! And you've definitely come to the right place, we love grass types here. c:

Thanks for the welcome guys =) I'll go ahead and answer the question that seems to be popular right now:

Which Grass Pokemon do you think has the most interesting typing?

There are a couple that I would name for this. The Lotad family has an interesting typing (water/grass) that is extremely annoying to deal with. I've never used a Ludicolo on my team, but I feel like I should try sometime because everytime I see one it manages to annoy me with how hard it is to get rid of.

I also think Breloom has interesting typing (grass/fighting). I've used it on teams in Ruby/Sapphire and it does serious damage. Plus, who wouldn't want a fighting mushroom?

I am going to revive this club, yes?

New topic: There are only three grass-type legendary Pokemon to date - Celebi, Shaymin, and Virizion. Which one is your fave?

Also, how do you feel about the lack of grass-type legendaries? Do you think there should be more?

Well this is an interesting topic to say at the least. I'm going to have to say Shaymin..Hold that though. SKYMIN! (Should had been the official name for Sky Shaymin, make it has more originally). Then again I like Celebi's design and Virizion looks cool, but I wouldn't use them in battle. Due to their 4x Weaknesses. Skymin has it too, but her signature move Seed Flare makes her beast!

How do you feel about the lack of grass-type legendaries? Do you think there should be more?
Grass types doesn't really fit the bill with Legendary Pokemon to be honest. I mean, when you think of Grass, you view them as a breezy, calm type of Pokemon. Legendary Pokemon doesn't seem likely for that, there are a few, but look at the others and their fierce look pretty much cancels it out. I mean look at the three we have now, they aren't scary, more so they are in the cute area.

I think we're good on Grass Legendary Pokemon. I wouldn't doubt this is what's left of the Grass Legendary Pokemon, I do see a bit more in the next new Generation when they release. If and when they do, they should probably think about NOT having them those 4x Weaknesses!

I'm on a tie between Celebi and Virizion. I can't say anything about Shaymin since I haven't been much of a fan of the 4th gen. Celebi is so adorable. If you watch Movie 4 (Pokemon 4ever), you'll fall for this little critter. it'll eat your heart up.

Virizion, however...I love how there's a grass and a fighting type. Pretty tough one indeed. :3

There's a ton of psychic types, dragon, ice, electric, but noooo grass. There should be a few more. It just doesn't seem enough. As Sector mentioned, grass-types are types that are calming... like Shaymin and Celebi, I'd like to see more.

I don't like Celebi at all so that's an instant no for me, but Shaymin and Virizion hmm... I think Virizion certainly has a more interesting typing and is more useful in battle as a result, but then it dose get a huge Flying type weakness and Fighting/Grass don't really cover each other very well... But then again it gets a great attack range so it's a hard choice! I think I'll have to go with Shaymin due to its cuteness. :D

How do you feel about the lack of grass-type legendaries? Do you think there should be more?
The lack of Poison types upsets me more ;p But nah, honestly I can't really think of any more Grass legendaries that could be added without making them ridiculous. I think really the only Grass legendaries from now on should be types like Grass/Psychic or Grass/Dark because otherwise it's kinda hard to believe that the Grass type has a legendary quality to it. However they did manage to do it with Shaymin and Virizion so it could be interesting to see what they come up with next! But nah, I don't think we really need more right now. :p
