    Mr. E Goods Gone for good


    In this club we talk about all the amazing bug and grass Pokemon! Talk about their designs, moves, appearances in the anime, the gym leaders and Elite Four members who specialise in grass and bug types and about how they relate to the real world. I might one day hold activities like drawing competitions and Wi-Fi Battles, I'll have to see how things in this club go first.

    First one to sign up? 8D

    Loves mah Grass-types. I love Doredia, Roserade, and Bellossom the best, but I love a lot of others too, like Erufuun, Vileplume, and Cherrim. Wormadam is cute too. <3

    I'm also the Grass Gym Leader of one of the Leagues here, so not only do I like them, I can utilize them proficiently in battle. :3

    Ahh all the images disappeared! I will have to fix that later.

    Welcome RoseSympthony, lovely name by the way. I am guessing you want to go up the grass ranking list.

    Being a grass leader is impressive, considering very few would be considered worthwile in compedative battling. Lucky in Gen 5 they are relatively stronger than in previous games. Erufuun, Doreida and Roserade are some of the dominants.

    Actually, quite a few of them can be viable when used correctly. While Grass might not be the best attacking type, Pokemon like Sceptile and Shaymin get great movepools and are capable of doing heavy damage as sweepers. Mostly, however, Grass tends to be a more defensive type, resisting common types like Water and Ground, as well as having some great defensive Pokemon like Celebi and Cradily (in Sandstorm, of course). Then of course some Grass types just get by with brute strength, like Breloom.

    As far as 5th gen is concerned, Grass-types will most likely be put on the map with the addition of Nattorei and Erufuun. Doredia might not get as much attention, but since it is one of the few decent Pokes to get Butterfly Dance I am interested to see where the metagame takes it. :3

    EDIT: I adore the banner, so I'm stealing it. :3 I'm assuming that's okay considering it looks to be a club advertising banner?

    Well your the expert, hopefully I can learn a lot off you about grass types in terms of battling XD I think Doreida's downfall though is the fact that she is pure grass and almost all her moves are grass as well, so there isn't much variety there.

    Oh the images are back, they must disappear when Veekun is down.

    And the banner thingy is fine, I need some more I think :p But you need to give credit to leilukin as I have in my sig, as she made the banner.

    Own Tempo and the power increase of Petal Dance is interesting tho.

    And okay.

    And just to point out a correction: My name is RoseSymphony, not RoseSymthony.

    Accepted and welcome.

    Sorry Rose, fixed the error.

    Topic time:

    If you had one choice at a grass and bug pokemon to be your only companions in the human world, which would you choose?

    I would choose a Tsutarja for the grass, as Jalorda is now my favourite grass type. It reminds me of that Madusa in Clash of the Titans which was epic win, and I would love to ride a Jalorda XD

    As for bug, I would choose to start with[​IMG] Whose evo, Iwaperasu is my favourite bug type pokemon. He just looks really funny/cool having a huge square rock on its back as a shell. He is a unique pokemon in terms of design, and is a much better replacement of Pasasect.

    For grass, I would choose Budew/Roselia/Roserade. what a surprise
    For bug, I would choose for Kurumiru, that evolves to
    [​IMG] that evolves to[​IMG]

    Come on people, join!

    Edit; I made a banner for the club, but it is actually just some sprites put together o_O
    but anyways, here it is:


    And I don't say we must use it or something I just wanted to show it, hope it's okay ;)

    Well, for my Grass-type companion, I would definitely choose [​IMG].

    For a Bug-type, it would have to be [​IMG].

    I chose Doredia because of her pure beauty. I love the way how her attacks are based off of dancing and her princess-like factor is too great to pass up.

    I chose Shubarugo because of two reasons: 1) you cannot ignore the awesomeness of a jousting bug, and 2) I'm a sucker for medieval references.

    Well, since it seems that topic is somewhat over, considering everyone has given their answers. Now, let me introduce one. As I have mentioned before in earlier posts, I have been able to use Grass-types with good success in battles against the typical, run-of-the-mill OU team. My question of you is what Grass/Bug types do you seem to perform well with in battle? Now, preferably I'd like to avoid the typical 'Celebi' and 'Scizor' answers. For example, I have found that Sceptile is an exceptional Pokemon in today's metagame, considering it has a blistering Speed stat that can outspeed the fastest of the tier, like Starmie. It also has a great special movepool. Bug-type wise, even though Scizor is a good Pokemon, I believe that Shuckle will be a force to be reckoned with in this upcoming generation. It already has incredible defenses, but unfortunately it is hampered by its nonexistant Attack and HP stats. However, the 5th gen has compensated for this with a move called Power Share, which averages both Attack stats of Shuckle and it's opponent, practically halving the opponents Attack stats and powering up yours.

    Hope that was a good topic starter for you guys, and got you to think about the capabilities of Grass and Bug-types in today's everchanging metagame.

    Ooh thankyou :) It looks great~

    What Grass/Bug types do you seem to perform well with in battle?

    Though I know hardly anything about competitive battling, Leafeon is pretty useful, as a starting pokemon. EV it in Defence and... Hp maybe and Sword Dance , then Baton Pass to a [​IMG] and X-Scissor, Iron Head or Giga Impact your foe dead, with its massive attack.

    So yeah, Leafeon, Roserade, shubarugo, Ulgamoth, Doredia, Forretress, Yanmega and Scizor are a few power house pokemon.

    As the gens progressed the bug and Grass pokemon got a little stronger, as in gen one the bug pokemon failed epically, with the grass not doing so well in gen 2, in terms of battling. I am glad to see some real power houses starting to show up in these two generally UU types. I am just sad to see so many like Butterfree, Beedril, Vespiquen, Wormadam, Sunflora, Cherrim, Carnivine and Jumpluff go unused in competitive gameplay, and in-game mostly as well );

    I don't know much about stats and stuff. But the four above are the best ones I used in my games.

    Of course there are more. And they keep gettin' better every generation. I never played Black and White so I don't know much about how they are in battles.
  16. RoseSymphony

    RoseSymphony Cloud Princess

    lol. So it seems I'm sort of the battle correspondent here at the Greenery Club.

    Responding to Ezz's pic...

    Heracross has declined since it's drop from OU to UU, but it still is pretty powerful.

    Breloom is a beast. 100% accurate Spore + godly Attack = best Grass physical attacker in the game.

    Roserade is good as a lead. Her usage has declined, however, since the spike of Machamp leads. But she's definitely the best Toxic Spiker lead out there.

    Yanmega is okay, I s'pose. Tinted Lens is helpful. Even so, you don't see it too often.

    I guess it's time for a new topic:

    What are your 3 favourite grass/bug Pokémon? And why?
    It can be for any reason, looks or stats.

    I will post mine soon.

    Mr. E Goods Gone for good

    That you are ;)

    What are your 3 favourite grass/bug Pokémon? And why?
    Venasaur, Jalorda, Cherrim. Because Venasaur is a tank, and I love its design. For the first grass starter I think it looks the best out of all of them. And it evolves from a cute Bulbasuar. Jalorda... Well I have already given my reasons in an earlier post XD
    Cherrim (sunny) because... It is just really cute and I love it in the anime. Cherrim is really agile and pretty.

    For the bugs. Kurumayu (green guy in my sig) Because I took a liking to him recently. He looks really sad and impatient to turn into a beautiful Hahakomori.
    Shuckle because it is so timid and cute as well. I just want one in real life XD In Gold and Silver, you get given a pet shuckle, and you are meant to return it to the owner. I never do.
    Iwapeasu because of reasons already stated earlier.

    We need some more people to join ;O; More users must love grass or bu types!

    Hi there, I'm quite the fan of Bug types. Grass types not so much, but still.

    My favourite would have to be Urgamoth, because it has quite the pretty design, in both normal and shiny form. It is also fairly strong.
