Post Fixing the Grass-types (Part 1)

And this is it: the topic of today’s article is about fixing the Grass-types. You know, it kind of baffles me as to how the Grass-type is less privileged in terms of competitive battling, and we will see why later. But first, I would like to bring

This was a really great read. I loved the ideas on how to improve Grass types in competitive play. However, the move of Spore on Pokemon like Breloom (who already has a great type spread) and Amoonguss (one of the best walls) make them viable. Also, the part about not getting a boost from weather is somewhat false. Some grass Pokemon, such as Jumpluff and Venasaur, have the ability Chlorophyll which gives them a speed boost. Grass Pokemon are definitely viable, but are definitely outclassed by the other types.

Yes, it's true that they have Chlorophyll (which is great), but as I have pointed out, the problem is that they don't have a boost to their main Grass-type STAB under Sun, unlike Rain, in which Water-types have their STAB boosted to form a powerful offence. Basically, I am pointing out that the type should have a inherent boost in Sun, like how Rock-types got an inherent Special Defence boost in Sand.

Thanks for the compliment! Not sure if you know this, but I drew all those pictures myself.

Thanks for reading.
