Grass (type)

The Grass type (Japanese: くさタイプ Grass type) is one of the eighteen types. Grass-type moves are super effective against Ground-, Rock-, and Water-type Pokémon, while Grass-type Pokémon are weak to Bug-, Fire-, Flying-, Ice-, and Poison-type moves.

Additional effects

Grass-type Pokémon are immune to Leech Seed.

Starting in Generation VI, Grass-type Pokémon are immune to powder and spore moves and Effect Spore.

Grass-type Pokémon are the only Pokémon affected by the stat-raising moves Rototiller and Flower Shield, introduced in Generation VI.

Forest's Curse, introduced in Generation VI, adds the Grass type to the target's types.

When Grassy Terrain is in effect, the power of Grass-type moves is increased by 30% (50% prior to Generation VIII) if the user is grounded.

Pokémon

As of Generation IX, there are 130 Grass-type Pokémon or 12.68% of all Pokémon (counting those that are Grass-type in at least one of their forms), making it the third most common type after Normal and before Flying. As of Generation IX and the introduction of Scovillain, all other types have been paired up with Grass at least once, making the Grass type the sixth type to have this trait after Flying, Water, Psychic, Dark, and Electric.

The Pokémon below are listed by their current types. Some Pokémon have had their types changed, usually when a new type was introduced.

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, Water, and Darkness Pokémon. Metal Pokémon resisted it until the EX Power Keepers expansion set, and then from Sword & Shield onward.

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 is tied with Rock in having the most weaknesses out of all types, with five.
  • The Grass type is tied with Bug as the most resisted type, being resisted by seven types.
  • 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 first partner Pokémon. 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.
    • In multiple languages, such as French and German, the Grass type is translated as the Plant type.
    • The Turkish dub of the anime occasionally refers to the Grass type ("Çimen türü") as the "Plant type" ("Bitki türü").
  • The Grass type has been paired with every other type at least once.
  • The Grass type has the most Pokémon that evolve by Evolution stones, with a total of 12. 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, Shiny Stone, and Fire Stone.
  • The Grass type is the only type to have more than one HP-draining move, having five of them.
  • Grass-type attacks deal doubly super-effective damage to the most Pokémon of all types.
  • Grass-type attacks are super effective against the three types that the Fire type is weak to.
  • In Tree's a Crowd, Brock states that Grass-type Pokémon resist Electric-type moves due to being able to diffuse the electricity into trees and the ground. He also explains that if Grass types are in the air, they cannot diffuse the electricity from Electric attacks, thereby dealing normally effective damage.
