What are the best grass type pokemon?
This mythical pokémon hasn’t been in the game for a long time, but it’s already one of the best grass types to add to your collection and battle rotation. It has great max CP, making it a strong all-rounder in fights.
Zarude was available as a Special Research questline reward, but unfortunately, the quest was only available for a limited time. If you have a Zarude, consider activating it to join your team. Otherwise, you might have to wait for him to make another appearance in the future.
Zarude is a Grass and Dark type Pokémon. This means it is resistant to dark, electric, ghost, grass, earth, water, and especially psychic type attacks. However, he has many weaknesses and will take additional damage from fairy attacks, fighting, fire, flying, ice, poison and especially insect-type attacks.
For a Grass-type Pokemon that is a little easier to obtain, Venusaur is a great bet. Its bulk and strong attacks make it nearly as powerful without being so rare.
You can catch Bulbasaur in the wild and use candy to evolve them into Ivysaur and eventually into Venusaur. Catch more Bulbasaur or ride with one as your friend to earn candy.
Venusaur can also be Mega Evolved, which will make it even more powerful. The Venusaur shade type is also an option to consider.
Venusaur is a Grass and Poison type Pokémon. That means it’s resistant to fights, water, electricity, fairies, and especially other grass-type attacks. However, he has a weakness to flying, fire, psychic and ice attacks.
The Eeveelution grass type is not a bad choice to add to your PvP team if you want to use something a little different. It has strong defenses and can be a good counter to the many types of water you can find.
Leafeon can be evolved from Eevee using 25 candies. Eeveelutions are usually random, but once per person, you can use special nicknames to force a specific Eevee evolution. Leafeon’s name is “Linnea”. Alternatively, using a Mossy Lure from the item shop and spinning a Pokestop will ensure that the next Eevee you evolve will be a Leafeon.
Leafeon is a Pure Grass-type Pokémon, so it is resistant to Ground, Water, Grass, and Electric-type attacks. However, it is vulnerable to flying, poison, insect, fire, and ice attacks.
Finally, some people wonder if they should evolve their Gloom into Vileplume or Bellossom. Vileplume is a strong attacker and will usually be better suited to fighting these troublesome gyms or Team Rocket members.
You can guarantee that you get a Vileplume by not using a Sun Stone on your Gloom, otherwise you will get a Bellossom. Either way, you’ll still need 100 candies.
Vileplume is a Grass and Poison type Pokémon. That means it’s resistant to fights, water, electricity, fairies, and especially other grass-type attacks. However, be careful as he has a weakness to flying, fire, psychic and ice attacks.
