The Grass type is one of the 18 Pokémon elemental types. Along with Fire and Water, it is one of the 3 main types of Pokémon, because all Starter Pokémon are in these 3 types. Grass-type attacks are super effective against Rock, Ground and Water, but the strength of this type is hindered by a multitude of weaknesses — Fire, Flying, Bug, Ice and Poison, reflecting how fragile nature is.

Despite having many weaknesses, Grass-type Pokémon are known for being immune to the move Leech Seed and, from the core series games Pokémon X and Y onwards, possessing the unique immunity to all kinds of powder and spore moves as well, such as Poison Powder, Sleep Powder, and Stun Spore. Fluoruma Gym Leader Fissy specializes in Grass-type Pokémon.
