I have been watching Pokemon for a very long time now. I have experienced the journey of Ash going through the world of Pokemon, making friends, battling with other trainers, and winning tournaments.
Watching the anime gave me the urge to also want these Pokemons to exist and make them battle each other.
Even though this was not possible in reality, it truly was possible in the Pokemon games in which many different Pokemons were given to me at my disposal, and to use them against other Pokemon.
However, there is a learning curve attached to mastering these Pokemons as there are eighteen types of Pokemons, each with its own strengths and weaknesses.
So in this article, I will be delving deep into Grass type weaknesses and everything else you need to know about these Pokemon.
What Is a Grass Type Pokemon?
Grass Type Pokemon are categorized as some of the weakest Pokemon in the entire series. These Pokemon are the starter Pokemon and, statistically, some of the least chosen as the starting companion.
Their reputation for being so weak comes from the fact that their moves are ineffective against seven types of Pokemons while, at the same time, five types deal super-effective damage against them.
Appearance-wise, these Pokemon are green in color, which resembles grass. They have the ability to control grass, and through that, they can also create whirlwinds which can be super effective against three types of Pokemon.
Best Grass Type Pokemon Weaknesses
As I explained earlier, grass-type Pokemons have the reputation of being some of the weakest Pokemons in the games. These weaknesses are explained below.
First up is Fire-type Pokemon, which can deal effective damage against grass-type Pokemon. These Pokemons can breathe fire, burning the grass-type Pokemons and gaining easy victory.
Similarly, bug-type Pokemon are also very overpowering to grass-type Pokemon. These Pokemons eat grass as a part of their diet; therefore, the grass is weak to bug-type Pokemon.
Ice types are also a weakness of the grass-type Pokemon as ice-type moves can easily counter grass-type Pokemon and ensure an easy victory.
Poison-type Pokemons in nature can kill grass-type Pokemons as they can poison their adversaries in battle. As grass is organic in the heart, poison can kill it with ease.
Finally, Flying type Pokemons can also greatly damage grass-type Pokemons. Apart from these weaknesses, grass-type moves are super ineffective against all fire, grass, poison, flying, bug, dragon, and steel Pokemon.
- Rock type weakness
- Water type weakness
- Fire type weakness
- Flying type weakness
- Fighting type weakness
Grass Type Strengths and Resistances
Even though Grass-type Pokemon are categorized as weak Pokemons, this does not mean that they are just a paperweight and cannot hold their own against a few types of Pokemon.
So if you have grass-type Pokemon, do not hesitate to pull it out against any water, ground, or rock-type Pokemon.
Grass-type Pokemons are super effective against all of these Pokemon types, and you can be sure to have an easy victory over them.
There are also Pokemons like a water type, electric type, grass type, and ground type to whose attack grass type is completely immune.
Best Counters For Grass-Type Pokemon
Now you are facing a grass-type Pokemon in battle and wondering which Pokemon to pull out. Well, in theory, you may take out any Pokemon from the family of Flying Type, Poison Type, Fire Type, and Bug Type, which will ensure an easy victory for you.
However, here are some personal recommendations to counter grass-type Pokemon. The first Pokemon on my list is Yanmega, a bug type that can be used against grass-type Pokemon. Its moves are super effective against any grass-type Pokemon.
The second Pokemon that is great against Grass Type is Salamence which has a very high stat total and comes from the flying type.
Finally, Eternatus, which comes from the Poison type of Pokemon, is a great Pokemon to counter grass-type Pokemon.
This was everything that you needed to know about Grass Type Weaknesses. Statistically, grass-type Pokemon are some of the weakest Pokemons in the game; that is weak against fire, ice, poison, flying, and bug type and strong against water, ground, and rock Pokemons.
