The Leafy Forest v2.0
A Grass Type Fan Club



Introduction


Owner: Leaf Storm

Welcome to a quiet area of the Pokemon Clubs, an area filled with trees, green grass, and many flowers of all kinds. This is the Leafy Forest, version 2.0. Why version 2.0? I was the previous owner of the first version of the club back in 2011, but it was closed down because I was taking over other duties. But, I’ve reincarnated this club, and will make it better than ever. This club is for anyone who loves, cherishes, and adores any type of grass-type Pokemon. Whether you like to choose a grass-type starter, or a fan of certain types of moves or Pokemon in general, this is the club for you!

Bring your watering cans, and sunshine…you’ll need a lot of that!



Rules


1. All Global PokeCommunity Rules apply
2. Spam is 20% not cool, man.
3. Zero tolerance for flaming/trolling/baiting. Any of that will be reported to OzCake and Olli.
4. Of course, stay active!
5. Any member here is more than welcome to start a topic. However, don’t start a new topic if the current one hasn’t died down for more than 1 day.
6. As this is a forest, please refrain from bringing fire, or matches.
7. Have fun. That’s more important!

Topic Answer:


Partner Pokemon & Level-Up System


You are to choose two Pokemon when you join the club. One of your Pokemon MUST be a starter. Why? Your starter Pokemon grows and evolves based on experience. So, when you begin, you start off with an unevolved starter Pokemon. Then, after 10 posts, your starter will evolve into your stage 1 form (aka Bulbasaur -> Ivysaur, Treecko -> Grovyle, etc). Your starter Pokemon will evolve into their final forms (Meganium, Serperior, etc) if you prove your activity, and/or contributiveness. That is based upon the decision of the owner of the club. So, it is important to be active!

Starters
Spoiler:


For your 2nd Partner Pokemon, you may choose one of these grass-type Pokemon. Keep in mind that none of the starters and their evolved forms are not in this list.

Grass-Types: How often do you use them in the games?
What *do* you like about grass-types?
On the Anime, which grass-type Pokemon do you find the cutest? Toughest?
Do you think there should be a grass/fighting starter, just like Fire starters have fire/fighting? Why?
What halloween costume would look good on your Partner Pokemon? (both of them!) Be creative :D

Explain why you chose your two Pokémon
THESE WERE REALLY HARD CHOICES HOW DARE YOU EXPECT ME TO MAKE SUCH DIFFICULT DECISIONS. /pouts

*ahem* With the starter I was torn completely between Treecko and Snivy. I absolutely adore them both; they're everything that Grass types should be imo. They're agile, tricky, dexterous, sneaky and most of all they can take a punch. These are all qualities I associate largely with Grass type Pokémon and I feel that these two starters summarize them very well; as for how I decided between the two, Luke chose Treecko for me :p

Choosing a second Pokémon was also incredibly difficult, but easier :D I was stuck between Sewaddle (my favourite Grass type), Foongus (my second favourite), and Snover (it's just really cool and interesting xD), but I chose Foongus because it's just utterly adorable. Look up at it's sprite and tell me I'm wrong! The way it moves it's little arms around n'awwww <333 I've always loved Foongus from the start partially because it's freaking adorable, but also because I love Poison types (Grass/Poison in particular), so there wasn't much chance of me disliking the little mushroom Pokémon. I also love it's evolution because despite being a huge derp face, it's actually pretty cute and can make for an incredibly interesting team member in a battle (seriously, if you've never tried using an Amoonguss I definitely recommend it). The reason I chose it over the other two is simply because Snover's evolution is horrific and I fear that Sewaddle would be chosen by everyone and I'm vain like that. xD

I COMPLETELY UNDERSTAND THAT CHOOSING A GRASS-TYPE STARTER IS DIFFICULT. I APOLOGIZE FOR MAKING THIS HARD. I mean, welcome aboard, you two! <3

Let's see. I chose Chikorita and Leavanny. Everytime I begin a playthrough on Silver or Soulsilver, I always choose Chikorita. Not Totodile, not Cyndaquil. I know that choosing a starter would not do much help in the 1st gym *sometimes*, but you can always train them. My Chikorita is easy to train, and always cooperates when in battle. :D

There's a different reason on why I chose Leavanny. When I first saw Sewaddle on the anime, I completely fell for it. Like...I wanted one for my game. So I went ahead and caught one at Pinwheel Forest. Trained it, and it evolved into a Swadloon. Back then, I wasn't fully aware of the whole new set of Pokemon, so I was sure that Swadloon was Sewaddle's final form. As Swadloon reached L26 in one battle, it evolved again. I was like "THAT'S IMPOSSIBLE WHAT." And it evolved into a Leavanny. Alongside another Pokemon I had, it was my powerhouse Pokemon. :D Since then, it is considered as my second favorite grass-type Pokemon alongside Meganium. <3

Topic Answer: Why? I had always been a fan of tortoise/turtle shaped Pokemon so Turtwig suits me just fine. I chose Simisage based of design, it looks rather......unique, I guess.

I just love Grass types, I'll choose the Grass type starter every time I play a new game , except for my Pokemon White, lol!!!

Topic Answer: Chikorita is just cool imo. Not because it looks cool but she's very underrated and I've smoked Falkner with just Chikorita in SS before. I picked Exeggutor because he's also Psychic type and a very reliable Grass Pokemon.

Paha, that's the exact same reason I love Sewaddle. xD It's so freaking cute in the anime! The way it playfully swings from tree to tree and the nuzzling thing it does to communicate and sdljgd so cute! It's impossible not to fall in love with it x] One thing I am curious about though; how could you not have seen Leavanny if you'd watched that episode? They were in the same episode and it says Leavanny evolves from Sewaddle xD But yeah I agree, that episode does a lot for Sewaddle's appeal and really turned it into a lovable Pokémon indeed <3

Topic Answer: Turtwig is the only grass pokemon that is also part ground, which I love (cuz ground types rule). I love Torterra's name, design, moveset. (physical grass starter, what'll they think up next?! :P) and turtwig is adorable. As for Parasect, I love that pokemon! I LOVE spamming spore, and while not the best grass type (at least not in third gen which is where I used it) it's still an awesome pokemon with the grass typing so there!

As for sewaddle, aw man I love those guys! My leavanny was awesome (before she died in my nuzlocke) and was really strong. And sewaddle is so cute! :D

Welcome you three. <3 Great to see ya here in this serene forest. :D

I see we have another Chikorita fan here! Kudos to ShinyUmbreon. :D I adore the Chikorita family as well! I know it's a bit underrated when used during game, but you can contain its adorableness! :D

I wasn't fully aware of it until after my Swadloon evolved. I wasn't paying attention!

I wouldn't see a problem in starting a new topic. Were here to talk about Grass Pokemon in general right?

I don't use them all the time but during gameplay's I try to get ahold of one. In HG/SS I liked using Bellossom. Shes actually really good and I also like using Vileplume and Victrebell as well for FR/LG. In Platinum I liked using Roserade and in R/S/E I would try to use Shiftry or Ludicolo.

I might have a go with Sunflora or Parasect some time soon.

Guys just a note, the rules state "5. Any member here is more than welcome to start a topic. However, don’t start a new topic if the current one hasn’t died down for more than 1 day." so bare that in mind in future as the current topic was certainly not dead and shouldn't have been replaced yet, so it's up to Megan which topic she'd prefer to stay for now. :)

As for Parasect, I love that pokemon! I LOVE spamming spore, and while not the best grass type (at least not in third gen which is where I used it) it's still an awesome pokemon with the grass typing so there!
Woo, finally another Parasect fan! :D I love that over-grown mushroom, it's so much fun to use in-game and it's moves are really interesting for competitive battle :D Shame it dies incredibly easily to anything that's super effective against it because Parasect could be a proper tank if used against the right enemies :3 It's an adorable Pokémon and in my opinion it's very underrated, but I suppose based on it's stats not too many people would be open to trying it out xD Understandable tbh! But who wouldn't want a giant mushroom on their team? B)

Um... thanks for that, OzCake xD Originally, I have plans to start "topic-discussing" until tomorrow. So MidnightShine, I'll keep your suggestion for tomorrow's first official topic. Right now, we are still discussing about our partner Pokemon. :D

With that, welcome aboard for those who just joined. Avishka, can you expand a bit on exactly why Lilligant is cute? Have you seen it in an anime episode? It is good @ battling? Anything like that? I'm really interested to see that.

All right, I really want to get back into clubbing again, so here I am~!

Name: Cirno
Partner Pokemon: Snivy (oh my godd how I wish I could choose Chikorita too) and Whimsicott
Password: Go, Snivy, use Leaf Storm!
Topic Answer: I didn't start loving Snivy until a little while after B/W's release. Its line was all right to me at first, but eventually later down the line, something just "clicked" with me and Snivy. <3 Plus it can get pretty strong with Swords Dance + Leaf Blade, which is one of my favorite comboes.

Whimsicott is reallyyyy cute (like Snivy) and fluffy, plus really fun to play with! I love the moves it learns and can't seem to keep it off my team no matter what now. :DD

But yeah, I also adore Chikorita because it is really cute (yep, I love cute). It's rather weak and doesn't learn many good moves, but does make a decent wall in the game when evolved.

YAY CIRNY! Welcome aboard to the leafy forest <3. I did knew that you'd be choosing Whimsicott for some reason, because it's been your favorite! :3 I have a Cottonee in my game but I have yet to evolve it, I need a Sun Stone for that. D:

Ahh, okay! I actually like the Shiny sprite a lot more than the regular. It's going to take some time to find/RNG a shiny Petilil to evolve it to shiny Lilligant. I do agree, it is "stunningly beautifuuuul :D"

Topic Answer:
OHMYGODITWASSOHARDTOCHOOSE too many I love! :'D eh, I should probably calm down.
Treecko is one of my favorite non-legendary types of all time really for huge reasons. Where to start, the introduction to Leaf Blade giving grass types more viability throughout the series. The gecko design on the evo line makes me want to squee like a girl, and PMD2 Grovyle is just simply amazing.
Leafeon- being one of my favorite grass types of all time and also my favorite eeveelution Leafeon's design is just stunning for me. It's also quite reliable in battle as well as making a great companion for another Pokemon with it's back up support with moves like a sword dance and baton pass combination

Grass-Types, how often do you use them in the games?
I tend to use them quite a bit in playthroughs, actually. Grass is a really interesting type as it has a lot of weaknesses, but is strong against some very common types. So, I tend to use them in my playthroughs, usually every other time or so that I play the game I'd say. They're very useful, and I feel I don't always use a ton of grass types because a third of the time my starter is grass, so I try to keep my team balanced. I also try to never use the same pokemon twice (except occasionally starters) so if I've used the grass types I like in a game, then I won't use them again/use the ones I don't like as much.
