Pokémon GO: The 25 Best Grass Type Pokémon (2024)

Grass-types have carved a niche in Pokémon GO, impressing with their diverse abilities, fascinating designs, and distinct strengths. Here’s a comprehensive guide to the best grass type Pokémon, enriched with their in-game details.

Grass Type Pokémon Overview

Grass-types are a fairly common type amongst trainers in Pokémon GO. This is likely due to Grass-types being one of the three starter Pokémon types. Grass types also have resistances to Water, Electric, Grass, and Ground-type moves. They also deal Super effective damage against Water, Rock, and Ground-type Pokémon. Each Grass-type generally has its own weaknesses based on its secondary types so we will go further into that on a Pokémon-by-Pokémon basis.
