 25. Victreebel Grass-Type Pokemon - it is dubbed the Flycatcher Pokemon and based on real world pitcher plants, which are carniverous and attract prey by emitting a sweet fragrance, before catching and digesting them slowly. Sounds vicious! In the case of Victreebel, the more prey it dissolves the sweeter it smells, sweeter than honey - therefore the more creatures it can trick into becoming its dinner. Victreebel is the second evolved form of Bellesprout and evolves from Weepinbelle. It has some solid offensive capabilities that are well complemented by its Chlorophyll ability, but its design really steals the show, it's just epic and really encapsulates the real life pitcher plant, whilst managing to be something completely different at the same time.

 24. Tangrowth - a really interesting looking tanky creature evolved from the OG Tangela. The concept behind this unique critter reminds me partially of a sheep, partially a jellyfish! There’s no denying the value of Tangrowth in combat. Not only does it have amazing defense and some great offensive stats as well, but its Regenerator ability is incredibly useful in any team composition.

23. Ludicolo - perhaps adorable or creepy - you decide! It boasts a lily pad sombrero, a duck like bill, a love for dancing and works as a barista in Detective Pikachu. It’s known as the Carefree Pokémon but in combat this monster makes use of its solid Sp. Attack and great same-type moves like Hydro Pump to deal massive damage. Its Swift Swim ability can also boost its Speed greatly, making it into a menacing sweeper as long as it’s raining. It's a water grass dual type and it evolves from Lombre and is the final form of Lotad.

 22. Meganium - with the power to revive dead patches of greenery with its breath, this magical Grass Type Starter Pokemon from the Johto region is just adorable, with its beautiful flower and mild mannerisms. It's a pretty passive Pokemon in combat. The fragrance of Meganium's flower soothes and calms emotions, which is just adorable. In battle, this Pokémon gives off more of its becalming scent to blunt the foe's fighting spirit. Meganium can be a very resistant fighter in the single-player campaign with moves like Giga Drain and Synthesis keeping it healthy while slowly but surely wearing down its opponent. It is the evolved form of Bayleef and super adorable Chikorita!

21. Vileplume - this peculiar looking fellow, a dual Grass/Poison-type, is a veteran from the original Kanto region, reknowned for having the biggest petals in the Pokémon world. It’s based on the real world Corpse Flower, which is a giant flower with meaty petals found deep within the Amazon. It's especially well known for its retch-inducing scent that smells similar to a rotting animal carcass. Vileplume’s greatest value in battle lies in its solid survivability coupled with its Effect Spore ability, which can inflict either Sleep, Poison or Paralysis on any Pokémon that comes into contact with it. Super creative and unique - and definitely poisonous!

 20. Rillaboom - emulating a real life Gorilla with a leafy mane, this Galarian Grass-type starter definitely looks like it means business. It is a solid fighter in Pokémon Sword & Shield thanks to great Attack, plus powerful same-type moves like Wood Hammer, and the Overgrow ability boosting its power when under 33% HP. Its special skill is drumming and by doing this, Rillaboom is able to tap in to the power of its special tree stump. The roots of the tree stump follow its direction in battle.

 19. Whimsicott - a dual Grass/Fairy type Pokemon from Generation 5, often known as the Windveiled Pokémon. Not only cute and sheep-like with sweet curly horns, it brings a lot of utility to any team composition by dealing solid damage with decent Sp. Attack and access to great same-type moves such as Moonblast. But what makes it epic is that its high Speed and Infiltrator ability make sure nothing can stop it from actually getting an unobstructed hit in. A Whimsicott with the Prankster ability can weaken foes with moves like Charm and Cotton Guard, then you can switch to a more offensive pocket monster to finish the job.

 18. Leavanny - a dual Bug/Grass type Pokemon from the Unova region and Generation 5 that has a special place in this list - not only is it known as the Nuturing Pokemon, it also weaves small clothing for small Pokémon to protect them from the elements, possibly the cutest trait ever!! It is the evolved form of Swadloon, the Leaf Wrapped Pokemon, which is just as adorable in appearance alone - Google it, you won't regret!

17. Trevenant - a Ghost/Grass dual type that definitely looks scary. The Elder Tree Pokémon Trevenant may be notoriously slow, but watch out if it catches up to you as it hits like a wrecking ball thanks to its high Attack stat. Other than that Trevenant is a very resistant fighter that won’t easily be bogged down by status ailments - this is mostly due to its Natural Cure ability which dispels any major status conditions on switching out of battle. It is a Generation 6 Pokemon and evolves from Phantrump when traded.

 16. Lilligant - who decided to make Grass type Pokemon so adorable? Whoever it is wins a prize.

Attack and high Speed, which can be further improved under intense sunlight by its Chlorophyll ability. It boasts regal looks and the beautiful blooming flower on its head, which earns it the title of Flowering Pokémon. It also means you just want to hug it.

 15. Virizion - looking a little like an alien tree from space and a power ranger, with horns as sharp as blades and a super confident expression, Virizion is a ray of hope, aesthetically and in combat too. Along with Terrakion and Cobalion, Virizion is part of the Swords of Justice. This is a group of Pokémon loosely based on the real world story of the Three Musketeers, sworn to protect the pocket monsters of the Unova region. Virizion is the Grass-type with the highest Sp. Defense of them all, but it also has all-around great stats!

 14. Shaymin - possibly a tiny, adorable floral hedgehog, Pokemon don't really come cuter than this (almost).

It's a pure pocket creature of positivity! It has a secondary form it can transform in to (it does not evolve) known as the deer-like Sky Forme, which makes it a dual Grass/Flying-type boasting incredible Speed and solid Sp. Attack. This secondary form can be activated by using a Gracidea flower in the daytime.

 13. Breloom - a mid-level starter Pokemon in the anime, this dual grass/fighting-type is not only menacing due to its exceptional Attack, but because it can endure prolonged fights through powerful draining moves like Drain Punch and Leech Seed. It appears as a shroomy dinosaur, a part mushroom, part dinosaur like critter. Its Mushroom Pokémon’s Poison Heal ability comes in handy, allowing Breloom to focus on pummeling their opponent, while its health gradually recovers at the end of each turn.

 12. Chesnaught - this crazy critter looks like an adorable mix between a hedgehog and a horse chestnut, with its spiky shell. It is the final evolution of Gen VI’s Chespin and a Grass/Fighting-type with a full-body protective covering that earns it the title of Spiny Armor Pokémon. With super-high Defense and great Attack, Chesnaught is a good fighter to depend upon, in that it can take a beating and deal one in return. Happily, its Bulletproof ability protects it well from ball and bomb-related moves.

 11. Lurantis - a super pretty pink flying grass insect Pokemon commonly known as the Bloom Sickle Pokémon, this fabulous Grass-type critter from the Alola region pretends to be a bug to protect itself from  any predators. It can use its flower like appearance and aroma to lure in opponents. It also appears to wear stripey flares! If battle becomes unavoidable, Lurantis can successfully hold its own thanks to its decent all-around stats and sustainability moves like Synthesis, which can heal half of its HP each time it’s used.

 10. Roserade - a glamorous looking dual Grass/Poison type classified as the Bouquet Pokémon. It grows beautiful red and blue bundles of flowers growing at the end of each of its arms but appearances can be deceiving because these bouquets hide Roserade’s main weapons – thorny tendrils that can be used to bind and poison its opponents. This amazing creature is a true asset in battle, it has excellent Sp. Attack and decent Speed, which allow it to deal massive damage given the right same-type move. It can also set up useful entry hazards like Spikes.

Kartana - a small Ultra Beast that appears like an origami human, Kartana is an ultra powerful dual Grass/Steel type Pokemon that boasts the highest Attack stat in the game, it’s incredibly fast, and it has access to some super powerful moves like Leaf Blade. For another thing Beast Boost ability means it grows stronger the more Pokémon it takes down in battle. Ultra Beasts are mysterious creatures introduced in gen VII that seem to hail from a vicious dimension. The hostile environment from which they came shaped these creatures in to extraordinary powerhouses, and Kartana is part of this crowd.

Venusaur is a force to be reckoned with thanks to solid Sp. Attack and balanced stats that make it a super versatile beast. Venusaur is definitely a top 10 grass choice, plus its design is so creative and just genius!

 6. Celebi - appearing as like an onion or shallot, this critter is commonly known as the Time Travel Pokémon - or a guardian of the forest thanks to its Psychic/Grass dual type and there are records of it appearing throughout history thanks its “time traveler” reputation. Its solid offensive stats and great typing, which gives it access to devastating same-type moves like Psychic, make Celebi into an incredibly fearsome sweeper that could down your whole team in the blink of an eye if you're not watching.

 5. Leafeon - is what happens when you train your Eevee close to a Mossy Stone in the Sinnoh region. If there are no such stones in your area, you can also bring it forth by giving Eevee a Leaf Stone. Leafeon may not be the strongest Eeveelution around, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack a punch. This cute critter has amazing Defense, Attack, and Speed, which becomes quite menacing when coupled with solid same-type moves like Leaf Blade – especially if it buffs itself with Swords Dance first.

 4. Decidueye - a tall, avian Pokemon that closely resembles an owl! It is a Grass/Ghost dual type Pokemon that first appeared in Generation 7 and is commonly known as the Arrow Quill Pokemon. It has such an incredibly cool appearance, it's pretty majestic on all accounts - plus has a trick up its sleeve. In combat, Decidueye can take advantage of its typing by bringing along Shadow Ball, which can be incredibly powerful if it gets a chance to cast Nasty Plot first to heighten its Sp. Attack first.

 3. Serperior - known as the Regal Pokemon, this grass snake style Pokemon critter is nothing short of majestic. It also possesses amazing battle prowess that comes from its Contrary ability, which makes stat lowering moves raise them instead, and vice-versa. This lets Serperior spam their opponent with the powerful same-type move Leaf Storm, which, rather than lower its Sp. Attack, raises it sharply. This Grass-type truly is a devastating sweeper and looks the part too, it's definitely 'Serperior' by all accounts!

 2. Ferrothorn - a Grass/Steel dual type Pokemon that looks like an alien spaceship, for real! One of the coolest and most creative designs, while still being able to be defined by 'that big grey thorned Pokemon', this beast from gen 5 has become quite ubiquitous in the competitive scene. It has an amazing defensive typing, but its Defense and Sp. Defense are both excellent, allowing it to do anything it wants for several turns without worrying about being knocked out. In this time it can choose to either slowly chip away at its enemies using moves like Leech Seed, or can focus on setting up entry hazards on the field with Stealth Rock and Spikes, piling pressure on the opposing team. Summing up, it is pretty epic.

 1. Sceptile - the Grass type Starter Pokemon of the Hoenn region, this fan favourite was introduced in Generation 3 and has been lucky enough to achieve huge notoriety from its main feature in the anime. It also possesses great viability in competitive play thanks to its excellent sweeper stats and access to Mega Evolution. Mega Sceptile can be an incredible asset due to its massive Speed and Sp. Attack, along with a Grass/Dragon-typing that gives it access to the same-type move Dragon Pulse. It's for sure one grass-type that embodies everything - a cool appearance, lots of popularity, and massive power in battle.
