A cuttable plant is an overworld obstacle in the core series games that can be removed by cutting it. These plants can be cut down by the field move Cut or the Secret Technique Chop Down.

From Generation I to V, these plants are small, skinny trees. In Generation VI, they are thorny bushes. In Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, they are small plants but sprawl widely to obstruct the player.
