Found it forgettable originally. Does not have great stats. Learns predominantly Grass moves. Likes Water Absorb. Seemed unnecessary on a Grass-type, though. Already made a cactus Pokemon.
Viewed it kinder as it became forgotten. Helped to not be overexposed to it. Showed up only in postgame in Generations 6 and 7. Made it sort of special, in a way. Sports an okay appearance. Suspects Marriland's enthusiasm for it rubbed off too. Entered one into a musical.
