5 most popular Grass Pokemon in Sword and Shield
#5 - Whimsicott
This lovable little scoundrel is an extremely useful Pokemon. With the ability Prankster, it can do all sorts of things, with the most prevalent use being Tailwind.
Its ability Prankster gives it +1 speed priority on all of its non-damaging moves, like Tailwind, to make all the players' Pokemon faster. It also has moves like Taunt, Encore, Fake Tears, Beat Up, and even Trick Room.
#4 - Kartana
Believe it or not, this Pokemon actually has the highest base attack stat in the game. With more than even Zacian-Crowned and Regigigas, its typing of Steel/Grass is very strong. Just watch out for Fire attacks.
Kartana has been one of the best Ultra Beasts ever since its release in Generation VII. Kartana has seen a huge amount of competitive play in every format since then as well.
#3 - Venusaur
The Generation I starter Pokemon, Venusaur has managed to stay relevant ever since its release in Red & Blue, winning the hearts of fans and gaining multiple new forms throughout time. Venusaur even gained a new Gigantamax form in Sword and Shield.
Venusaur has come a long way since Red & Blue, from the neglected starter to a top Grass Pokemon.
#2 - Rillaboom
The Grass starter of Sword and Shield, Rillaboom was a faithful companion on the journey of many players through Galar. Rillaboom is one of the most used Pokemon in the competitive scene currently in Series 8.
Rillaboom's ability, Grassy Surge, can summon Grassy Terrain when brought into battle. Grassy Terrain buffs Grass-Type moves and heals at the end of every turn.
#1 - Amoonguss
The pokeball imitation Pokemon, Amoonguss has been one of the most used Pokemon in every format since its debut in Generation V. Amoonguss has access to the incredibly strong move Spore, that has 100% accurate sleep statusing.
