Grassy Terrain creates
terrain that envelops the field and replaces the background environment and any other terrain that is already in effect. The terrain fades after five turns.
This terrain has the following effects on Pokémon that are
on the ground and not in the semi-invulnerable turn of a move.
At the end of each turn, the terrain restores the
HP of each affected Pokémon by 1/16 of its maximum HP. It boosts the power of Grass-type moves used by affected Pokémon by 50% (regardless of whether the target of the move is affected by Grassy Terrain).
If Grassy Terrain is in effect, unless the target is in the
semi-invulnerable turn of a move such as Dig or Dive, the power of Bulldoze, Earthquake, and Magnitude is halved (even if the user or the target is not grounded).
If Grassy Terrain is in effect,
Nature Power becomes Energy Ball, Secret Power uses the animation of Vine Whip and may cause sleep, and Camouflage causes the user to become Grass-type. Natural objects disappear and cannot be destroyed while Grassy Terrain is in effect.
Grassy Terrain also activates the Ability
If a Pokémon is holding a
Grassy Seed while the field is Grassy Terrain, it consumes the Grassy Seed and its Defense is increased by one stage (even if it is not otherwise affected by the terrain).
Terrain Extender is held when Grassy Terrain is used, the terrain will last 8 turns instead of 5.
When a Pokémon with the Ability
Grassy Surge enters battle, Grassy Terrain is automatically created which lasts for 5 turns (8 if the Pokémon holds a Terrain Extender).
When powered up by a
Grassium Z into Z-Grassy Terrain, the user's Defense stat rises by one stage.
X Y OR AS The user turns the ground under everyone's feet to grass for five turns. This restores the HP of Pokémon on the ground a little every turn.
S M US UM The user turns the ground to grass for five turns. This restores the HP of Pokémon on the ground a little every turn and powers up Grass type-moves.

It also speeds up HP recovery. * It changes the floor to the Grassy Terrain, where Grass-type moves become more powerful and HP is naturally restored faster. It also halves damage from moves such as Earthquake, Bulldoze, and Magnitude. But it has no effect on Pokémon in the air. *
