The '''Grass type''' (Japanese: '''くさタイプ''' ''Grass type'') is one of the eighteen [[type]]s. Notable Trainers who specialize in Grass-type Pokémon are [[Erika]] of [[Celadon City]], [[Gardenia]] of [[Eterna City]], [[Cilan]] of [[Striaton City]], and [[Ramos]] of [[Coumarine City]]. Prior to [[Generation IV#Advances in gameplay|changes in Generation IV]], all Grass-type moves were [[special move|special]], but they may now also be [[physical move|physical]] depending on the attack.

===Defense===
Offensively, although they are the only type that can super-effectively handle commonly-used {{t|Water}}/{{t|Ground}} Pokémon such as {{p|Quagsire}}, Grass types have problems in most other situations. The main problem Grass-type moves face is that nearly all of the few Pokémon they are advantageous against are also weak to moves of other types, hence making them seem dwarfed by the effectiveness of moves of other types. Other problems are that too {{t|Bug|many}} {{t|Fire|Pokémon}} {{t|Steel|types}} {{t|Flying|resist}} {{t|Dragon|these}} {{t|Poison|moves}} (including themselves) to rely on them as a main form of dealing damage, and most of them aren't very powerful. Even then, most of the powerful moves have severe drawbacks. {{m|Leaf Storm}} harshly lowers Special Attack, {{m|Wood Hammer}} causes recoil damage, {{m|Petal Dance}} causes confusion, {{m|Solar Beam}} requires charging up if {{m|Sunny Day|intense sunlight}} is not present and {{m|Frenzy Plant}} requires a turn to recharge after being used. The majority of Grass types have very narrow movesets, often where the only damage-dealing level up moves are Grass-type and {{type|Normal}} moves (as seen in Pokémon such as {{p|Meganium}}, {{p|Cherrim}} and {{p|Sunflora}}). Another problem is that double resistances to Grass are extremely common, even more so than double weaknesses, and the Ability {{a|Sap Sipper}}, which several Pokémon have, negates Grass-type attacks, and even raises [[Stats#Attack|Attack]] whenever hit by one.
+
Grass types are tied with {{t|Rock}} in having the most weaknesses out of all types with five.
   
Grass-type Pokémon seem to be affected by [[weather conditions]] more than most other Pokémon, due to their closeness with plants and nature. Most power up under {{weather|intense sunlight}}, while a few others work best under other conditions, such as {{p|Ludicolo}} in {{weather|heavy rain}}, {{p|Cacturne}} in {{weather|sandstorm}}s or {{p|Abomasnow}} in {{weather|hailstorm}}s. A majority of Grass types have above-average Attack or Special Attack as well as high Speed, as seen in {{p|Sceptile}}, {{p|Leafeon}}, and {{p|Lilligant}}, which can become mixed, physical, and special [[Appendix:Metagame terminology|sweepers]], respectively.
+
Since [[Generation I]], a particular asset of Grass types is being the only type that is immune to {{m|Leech Seed}}. As of [[Generation VI]], Grass-type Pokémon are also immune to {{cat|powder and spore moves}}, such as {{m|Sleep Powder}} and {{m|Stun Spore}}. Additionally, Grass Pokémon are the only ones affected by {{m|Rototiller}} and {{m|Flower Shield}}. Those moves raise both attack stats or the physical {{stat|Defense}} stat, respectively, when used.
   
===Defense===
+
{{m|Forest's Curse}} adds the Grass type to the target's types.
Defensively speaking, Grass types have both good and bad points. Whilst weak to the {{t|Ice}} type and {{t|Fire}} type—two very commonly used types offensively—the other weaknesses of the Grass types are rarely used offensively; furthermore, two of the types that specialise in moves that Grass types are weak to are hindered by their poor offensive stats. Also, most Grass types have a secondary type which eliminates their weaknesses to {{t|Poison}}- and {{type|Bug}} moves, which in turn makes {{type|Flying}} moves more of a threat. Furthermore, all of Grass's resistances are quite common.
 
   
On the other hand, Grass types' main problem is their weakness to five types — the most weaknesses of all types, tied with the {{t|Rock}} type. Also, in practice, Grass types' resistances are still of little use. Almost all Water types make use of {{m|Ice Beam}}, and most Electric types can learn {{m|Signal Beam}}, while several Rock types and Ground types can learn Fire-type moves. With a number of Grass types being half Poison-type, their resistance to Ground-type moves has been hindered. Given all of this, Grass types are difficult to switch into play.
+
===Offense===
+
Grass-type attacks are resisted by seven types, so they're tied with {{t|Bug}} as the most resisted type. Those resistant types are best covered by {{t|Rock}}. As of Generation VI, {{t|Dark}} and {{t|Ghost}} have neutral matchups against every type that resists Grass.
Despite some of its defensive flaws, it is typical for Grass types to learn {{m|Leech Seed}} and {{m|Synthesis}}, among other disabling moves, like {{m|PoisonPowder}}, {{m|Sleep Powder}} and {{m|Stun Spore}}. This enables Grass-type Pokémon to provide support to the rest of their team, and can make them difficult to faint. In addition, a particular asset of this type is being the only one immune to Leech Seed.
 
   
As of [[Generation VI]], Grass-type Pokémon are immune to [[:Category:Powder and spore moves|spore and powder moves]], such as {{m|Spore}}. Because of this, alongside their resistance to Grass-type moves and immunity to Leech Seed, they are good at defending against other Grass-types.
+
When {{m|Grassy Terrain}} is in the effect, the power of Grass-type moves is increased by 50% if the user is [[grounded|on the ground]].

In {{pkmn|Contest}}s, Grass-type moves are typically {{OBP|Smart|condition}} moves, but can also be any of the other four Contest types.

==In the TCG==
  +
{{main|Grass (TCG)}}
  +
Due to the decreased amount of types in the TCG, Grass generally adopts all {{type|Bug}} Pokémon under its typing. It also adopted {{type|Poison}} Pokémon prior to the {{TCG|Diamond & Pearl}} set, after which they were moved to {{TCG|Psychic}}.
  +
  +
Similar to the games, Grass-type Pokémon in the TCG are generally weak to {{TCG|Fire}} and resist {{TCG|Water}}. Grass-type Pokémon are strong against {{TCG|Fighting}} and {{TCG|Water}} Pokémon, whilst {{TCG|Metal}} Pokémon resisted it until the {{TCG|EX Power Keepers}} expansion set.

The Grass type (Japanese: くさタイプ Grass type) is one of the eighteen types. Prior to changes in Generation IV, all damaging Grass-type moves were special, but they may now also be physical depending on the attack.

Characteristics

Defense

Grass types are tied with Rock in having the most weaknesses out of all types with five.

Since Generation I, a particular asset of Grass types is being the only type that is immune to Leech Seed. As of Generation VI, Grass-type Pokémon are also immune to powder and spore moves, such as Sleep Powder and Stun Spore. Additionally, Grass Pokémon are the only ones affected by Rototiller and Flower Shield. Those moves raise both attack stats or the physical Defense stat, respectively, when used.

Forest's Curse adds the Grass type to the target's types.

Offense

Grass-type attacks are resisted by seven types, so they're tied with Bug as the most resisted type. Those resistant types are best covered by Rock. As of Generation VI, Dark and Ghost have neutral matchups against every type that resists Grass.

When Grassy Terrain is in the effect, the power of Grass-type moves is increased by 50% if the user is on the ground.

Contest properties

In contests, Grass-type moves are typically Clever moves, but can also be any of the other four contest conditions.

Pokémon

As of Generation VII, there are 98 Grass-type Pokémon or 12.1% of all Pokémon (counting those that are Grass-type in at least one of their forms), making it the fourth most common type.

In the TCG

Main article: Grass (TCG)

Due to the decreased amount of types in the TCG, Grass generally adopts all Bug-type Pokémon under its typing. It also adopted Poison-type Pokémon prior to the Diamond & Pearl set, after which they were moved to Psychic.

Similar to the games, Grass-type Pokémon in the TCG are generally weak to Fire and resist Water. Grass-type Pokémon are strong against Fighting and Water Pokémon, whilst Metal Pokémon resisted it until the EX Power Keepers expansion set.

Trivia

  • Generation V introduced the most Grass-type Pokémon of any generation, with 21 (including Rotom's Mow form), and Generation VI introduced the fewest Grass-type Pokémon, with nine.
  • Generation I introduced the most Grass-type moves of any generation, with 10, and Generation II introduced the fewest Grass-type moves, with three.
  • The Grass type and/or Pokémon of the type have been referred to using the term "plant" instead on some occasions:
    • In the English Generation I games, the Gym guide in Cerulean Gym refers to Pokémon of the Grass type as "plant Pokémon". In the English versions of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen, he instead mentions "Grass-type Pokémon". In the Japanese versions of the Generation I games and FireRed and LeafGreen, he mentions the Grass type itself, calling it the "Plant type" (Japanese: しょくぶつタイプ).
    • Another reference to "plant Pokémon" (Japanese: しょくぶつポケモン) is made by Professor Oak in the Japanese Pokémon Red, Green, and Blue, and international Pokémon Red and Blue, classifying Bulbasaur as such when the player is about to choose it as their starter. This is also the case in the Japanese versions of Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen; in contrast, he calls it the "grass Pokémon" in the English versions.
    • The Turkish dub of the anime occasionally refers to "Grass type" as "Plant type".
  • The Grass type has the most Pokémon that evolve by evolutionary stones, with a total of 11. It is also the type that can utilize the most stones, having at least one Pokémon that can evolve via the Leaf Stone, Sun Stone, Water Stone, and Shiny Stone.
  • Grass is the only type to have more than one HP-draining move, having five of them.
  • Grass-type attacks deal 4× super effective damage to more Pokémon than any other type does.
