Pokémon General Poll #28 - Favorite Grass Pokémon

http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/182.gif http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/497.gif http://pldh.net/media/pokemon/gen5/blackwhite_animated_front/102.gif

To round out the starter triangle, we have Grass. Never forgotten as a symbol of nature and how beautiful it is, Grass is the typing chosen by Aroma Ladies and the gentler among us. Regardless, there are still some fierce competitors in there that would Razor Leaf you if you even dared to call them gentle! So, which one is your favorite and why?

The Snivy family really caught me. I mean, grass snakes! Or I think Serperior's a snake. It looks like it. And more than that, they have some of the most amazing designs. That, and Snivy with a coat looks classy. :3

http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/285.gif I think I prefer this guy most of all. I mean, c'mon, he's just begging for your love! And don't forget Spore. Love Spore. @[email protected]

http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/286.gif Spore as well, and I love battling with this sneaky little rascal. :D I also quite like its design, I mean check that hat. ^^

http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/492.gif It is a cute white leafy hedgehog. Honestly I can't at all comprehend why I would need more reason than that.

http://media.pldh.net/pokecons_action/492-sky.gif It's also cute, and I like using the Gracidea on it and it's pretty good in battle. And let's not forget Seed Flare, I love that move. ^^

EDIT: Oh gosh I wanted to put Pansage and Simisage here but too late. :(

Some Grass-types have strategies so good they might earn a slot on my team.

Here's the Grass Pokemon I really like.

Roserade - My fave Pokemon of this type. I loved Roselia in Gen III so I was excited to learn that she had an evolution, she has great Special Attack plus Natural Cure means she cures herself when she switches out.

Breloom - Loved using this mushroom with a humanoid body, despite the double weakness to Flying I ended up with one having a Rock-type Hidden Power. Breloom will always find a slot on my team at some point. And its Poison Heal rocks too.

Lilligant - She's one feisty, girly plant! With a Quiver Dance, Petal Dance and Teeter Dance combo with Own Tempo, she's a force to be reckoned with!

Whimsicott - Soooo cute, loved using her. Get one with Prankster, equip status moves on it and it will always go before its opponent. Loved her!

Simisage - It's a green monkey with plant features, I love monkeys so I was excited to see it along with Simipour and Simisear. I tried it out and it might help me sometime, plus cool design too!

Snivy - This Unova Starter was so overrated for its femininity in the anime, she can be a wrecking ball with Contrary (not officially released). Snivy's evos (Servine and Serperior) are very well designed too.

Cherrim - Cute with added power in Sunshine.

Vileplume and Bellossom - Final evos of Oddish, both pack Chlorophyll and they pair well.

Sawsbuck - I love how it changes with the seasons, I tried one in Black and it kicked ass with Horn Leech, Return and Megahorn.

Cradilly all day every day, my favorite grass type by far. Whimsicott is pretty awesome too mostly because it's so efficient and it's adorable.

November 7th, 2011, 12:36 AM
I like Torterra and Ferrothorn. The former has a cool design, with a tree and mountains on its back and the latter has high defenses and a good enough move pool and typing to succeed.

November 7th, 2011, 2:18 AM
Snivy is my favorite grass type, but back before when B/W wasn't released yet, Meganium's my favorite grass type Pokemon together with Shaymin and Cherubi. :'D

Grass is one of my least-used types, so I'm just gonna name the two I've actually had experience using - Bellossom in Sapphire/Emerald (she was especially helpful versus the swimmers on the water routes, though not so much against Tentacool, and she could usually Petal Dance the opposition to death before getting confused) and Exeggutor in Blue and Leaf Green (myriad of weaknesses aside, it DESTROYED things with Psychic).

Bellossom is a rare breed... a cute Pokemon that's also a final stage one with powerful stats.

November 7th, 2011, 7:14 AM
Saur!, Saur!, Venusaur! He is a really good Pokemon to use & it has a really good design.

November 7th, 2011, 9:00 AM
http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/9/97/Spr_5b_254.png - It surprises me to no end that no one has said this. Just... wow... Leaf Blade now and until the end of time.

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/f6/Spr_5b_598.png - About a billion resistances, and very high defenses is awesome. Not that good design-wise though.

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/ba/Spr_5b_286.png Mainly for spore, mach punch, and the fact that i love fighting types. plus shroomish is found early in R/S. I can't wait for DW technician.

I'm really not a fan of Grass critters, to be honest. Outside of my favourite - Cradily - and Whimsicott, I'm not sure if I've even used one in a team. That being said, Cradily is all kinds of awesome, but that's mainly because of how un-Grass-like it is. It looks kooky (other people might say fugly, and I wouldn't necessarily disagree straight away), it's hella slow, its stats aren't great... and yet I love it all the same. Its typing is very interesting, and its movepool is kinda good... and that's all I really ask for in a way. So: Cradily FTW!

November 7th, 2011, 10:22 AM
Favorite Grass-types? Let's see...

Sceptile is at the top of this list, as it's stats are suited to my way of play, & I've been using it since R/S/E.

Sky form Shaymin is also really nice, but it's a shame that I can't use it in that form indefinitely...

Cradily with its DW ability is a water-types worst nightmare.

Lastly, the Serperior line is at least halfway decent, but I can't get over its funky stats.

um.... Meganium.... It has been my favorite grass Pokémon for quite a while now....

Ivysaur holds the place in my heart for Grass-types. Sure, it's not the most powerful Grass/Poison type, since it does still have a second evolution to go through, but I certainly prefer the design to the overly muscular Venusaur and its rather cartoon-like pre-evolution.

November 7th, 2011, 11:39 AM
I really like Breloom. It puts you to sleep, and then kicks your ***.

November 7th, 2011, 3:29 PM

Loved that thing since I decided to pop one into my team on Silver. One of my top three favorite Pokemon, and thus my favorite Grass type of 'em all. I also like Bulbasaur, Roserade, Cherrim, Shaymin, Doredia, Whimsicott and Torterra, mmmhm!

November 7th, 2011, 5:01 PM

An original Pokémon, great design, nice stats and I just love it!

November 8th, 2011, 12:48 AM
I like the Oddish family, because they're classic and the poison-grass combo works very well. Also, Ferroseed is a way cool concept, although it's double weakness to fire turns me off a bit. And finally, I find the grass-type starters to be consistently the best-designed of the bunch.

November 8th, 2011, 1:14 PM

Tangrowth is so, to use a word someone mentioned, kooky. I love how it looks big and soft and a little simple. And that little hip dance - oh! so amusing. Shake that thang!

November 8th, 2011, 11:53 PM
Serperior. Because it is so kingly and very majestic.

King Walrus
November 11th, 2011, 1:31 PM
Abomasnow, Ludicolo, Shiftry, Torterra, Snivy, Whimsicott, Sawsbuck, Venusaur, Cradily or Tropius. I cant decide.

November 11th, 2011, 1:56 PM
Torterra is my favourite Grass-type Pokémon. I like Torterra's moves. Synthesis, Razor Leaf, and Leaf Storm are great moves. Also Torterra's Overgrown is good thing. Torterra is also determinated Pokémon and that's what I respect. Overall Torterra is strong Pokémon. Also Torterra is one of my two favourite Pokémons.

November 11th, 2011, 7:22 PM


Why? My Sceptile was really tough back at Emerald (but Azumarill was my most powerful despite being an HM slave). I like it's design and Leaf Blade pwns. Sceptile is so powerful and well..he's cool too.

Arceus (hey it can be a grass type k)
Snivy and friends
and more..

November 11th, 2011, 8:20 PM
This kooky little cactus is too cute. I fell in love with her the first time I saw her sprite. It may not the best stats but they aren't everything. I can just imagine it dancing around and it's anime episode just made me love it even more. Mine is called Trixi and this name suits her perfectly and she is my got to pokemon for musicals and dream world stuff. I amazed she hasn't been mentioned yet.

November 11th, 2011, 9:07 PM
I love almost all the grass types.

When it comes to favorite I'll say it has to be pokemons like Bulbasaur, Pansage and most of all Servine!

http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/cf/Spr_2c_001.gif http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a8/Spr_5b_511_s.png http://cdn.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/f/fe/Spr_5b_496.png

Bulbasaur because they are cute and after seeing Ash's and May's bulbasaurs, I am in love them.
Pansage because I used to have it in my pokemon black team. It's very useful.
Servine because it is simply gorgeous. A unique pokemon which is b'ful and at the same time kicks a$$es!

November 11th, 2011, 9:40 PM
My favourite grass type Pokemon is Tangela. Tangela is my 3rd favourite Pokemon, always has been always will be. I'm not all that sure why it is, I guess I always thought it looked awesome and was super cool to use in Pokemon Gold (and how you could catch lv40 ones at Mt Silver). And it's not awful for a competitive Pokemon either (even though it's unevolved). iicr it was banned in LC because it ripped apart teams in the sun. I like all grass types pretty much, except Shiftry, I hate Shiftry.

November 12th, 2011, 2:14 AM
Meganium-It has to be the best and cutest grass Pokemon ever!!!It also has a very good movesets! :D

Shaymin-It is round and cute and good moves! :D

Ludicolo-I love the fact that it likes music!It also is one of the only 3 water/grass types and has an awesome moveset!

Tropius-Its so awesome!!!You cant help but liking the little guy!It has greaat stats and a good moveset.

Treekco and friends. Like an old favorite, Charmander, except he's a plant!

November 17th, 2011, 6:48 PM
best grass starter in my opinion has an awsome evolution

Pokemon Trainer Touko
November 18th, 2011, 2:19 AM
Erufuun, Belossom, Jalorda and Chikorita are my favorites <3
And also Cherrim and Churine and Liligant oAo;

November 18th, 2011, 3:29 AM
Exeggutor, Cradily, and Sceptile. Always been my favourites, Sceptile was such a badass starter and Cradily is up there because the fossil Pokemon are my favourite kind.

Exeggutor for it's awesome power, tore down everyone in HG with Solarbeam and Psychic.

November 18th, 2011, 10:15 AM
My favorite grass Pokemon is Roserade. It's so elegant and beautiful, and it's prevolutions are adorable (I love Roselia). Roserade is also so great in battling. I love the design of it, high class masque apparel, and the charismatic flair it has.
I also am a fan of Lilligant, Serperior, Meganium, Cradily, and Breloom.

Sceptile and it's whole evolutionary chain. I was used to flowery, leafy things as grass types until I saw him in R/S/E and was like, "Hey, that's a gecko!"

All time favorite Grass-type. Though with B/W, Snivy is coming a close second. :D

November 19th, 2011, 2:52 PM
Oddish is my favorite but second fave, I guess is cradilyy LOL

November 21st, 2011, 11:10 AM
Actually I never use Grass-Pokémon (except Ferrothron while a strategic try, but I quickly leave it). I think they're really weak. Well, that doesn't prevent me from appreciating them nevertheless :pink_nod:
I love Chikorita ! In the anime "she" was so cute.
I think Leafeon is also really graceful, even if I wouldn't have imagined the grass Eeveelution like that.

I'm really not that into Grass type Pokemon but if I had to choose one is probably going to have to be Megainum because Meganium has helped me a lot in the Battle Frontier in both Pokemon Emerald, Platinum and Soul Silver. My second would have to be Sceptile due to it looking very cool.


November 23rd, 2011, 10:04 AM
My list consists of:


If I had to choose just one of those it would probably be... between Virizion, Shaymin, Tropius, Bellossom and Meganium... tough one... okay out of those 5 I'll narrow it down to Virizion and Meganium... I honestly can't choose, so...

Virizion in the game
Meganium in the TCG
