Post Grass-type Award Ceremony

(Picture by finni and zinmay) It took a long time, but I finally done it. Admittedly, part of the reason this took long is due to being busy, but the other part is me being lazy to complete this (and with this, I had to scrap a couple of a

That's really interesting. xD I disagree with cutest though. I think chikorita or oddish would work better. And I love lotad too. XD But I know it's just a matter of opinion. Bellossom's pretty cute too. I CERTAINLY agree with least favourite. I really dislike the burmy line.

Also, whoever reviewed this article didn't realise that the carnivine picture is in the section for shaymin. XD The second time shaymin appears.

Really well written and interesting article. I like reading about other people's opinions. Too bad Bulbasaur didn't win anything!

The only one I would personally strongly disagree with is the best starter being the Snivy family. While I do really like the design and think that Snivy has great attitude in the anime, I did pick it as my starter and found it pretty disappointing. It doesn't have a very wide movepool and while its defenses might be good, it is not very useful at attacking anything, which I think is much more important in-game. I found both the Treecko and Bulbasaur families to be much more useful for their wider movepools and abilities to deal some decent damage at all evolutionary stages. But of course, that's just me!

I never really considered how strange it was that Exeggcute is a grass-type until you just pointed it out! You're right, plants aren't really associated with eggs at all. Maybe they're supposed to be strange coconuts? Totally weird! xD And even weirder that I never questioned it before!

Another great and enjoyable article, winstein. Thanks for sharing and as always, I look forward to more from you!

Cuteness is indeed subjective, so different people have different Pokemon whom they call cute. Still, it's quite fascinating to hear of what's cute to you. Also, it would be my fault that I placed the wrong picture, since I didn't check it more thoroughly.

I do agree that in some ways Snivy is hard to use (that stat spread has to do with it), but other people may not feel the same way. One strategy I like to use is Coil, which I use with Scope Lens to boost the critical hit ratio of Leaf Blade. I could have boosted more to win, but it didn't feel right to me because I have other Pokemon in the party. I would also say that Bulbasaur is easier to use mainly because the environment in Kanto favours it. Think about it: the first two Gyms are weak to Grass, but the next two are resisted by Grass. I can't say the same for Treecko, since I never really used it for serious.

About Exeggcute, yeah, some things are not very evident until one observant person notices it, and then you tell people about it, so they too see the certain distinction.

Thanks for reading.
