Alright so, I just got pokemon platinum a few days ago and I've beat 4 gyms with my current team but I think there's something missing like a grass type. Looking for something other then Leafeon please. My team so far: Lv. 29 Rotom Lv. 26 Eevee Lv. 27 Monferno Lv. 30 Staravia Lv. 30 Gastrodon Lv. 24 Gabite (Want to get rid of this)

pre-national dex fully evolved grass or part grass types choose one you like:

Roserade

Wormadam

Cherrim

Carnivine

Torterra (you can't get it without trading)

Abomasnow

Tangrowth

Tropius

if you want any of the grass Pokemon from the national dex than you will have to trade for it.

Any of these pokemon except for wormadam are quite useful. And most of them are good if you abuse sunny day. Abomasnow is quite tricky. His stats are not bad, but its not good either, and his ice/grass type gives him 7 weaknesses (and double weakness against fire) while only 4 resistances, also the fact that he is slow doesn`t help. His base stats: HP: 90 Attack: 92 Defense: 75 Special Attack: 92 Special Defense: 85 Speed: 60 I would avoid him.

Where can I get an Abomasnow?hellion04963

According to Serebii:

You can get the pre-evolution of Abomasnow, Snover, on route 216, route 217, Lake Acuity, Lake Acuity Lakefront, and Mt. Coronet top.

You can get Abomasnow only on Mt. Coronet top.

Snover evolves into Abomasnow at level 40.

Okay cool thanks guys. Does anyone know if Tropius is a good grass type for the time being? It's a Grass/Flying type that I just got from safari zone.

It is somewhat bad. Good defenses, but not good enough. Low offensive and speed. Base stats: HP: 99 Attack: 68 Defense: 83 Special Attack: 72 Special Defense: 87 Speed: 51

I usually don't use grass type, but I'll try anyway.

Bulbasaur is pretty good.

Abomasnow will bring you victory most of the time.

Rosarade is a good fellow to have.

Alright, I made my decision... I'm going with Snover until it evolves to Abomasnow at level 40. Thanks for the information guys. :)

blastoise- lv 55

gengar- lv 54

milotic- lv 100

The good thing i see on abomasnow is that he can be either physical or special without too much problem, but his 7 weaknesses is a problem. =O

Unless you baton pass a sub with agility boost, on competitive works quite well, because the enemy won`t know if he is physical or special `til its too late.

I have a Leafeon in my party. It's actually quite a good grass type. It has low HP stats but it also learns several moves that recover HP and it has good defense so it kind of evens out. You can evolve your Eevee into one.

Breloom. You can't go wrong with a grass fighting. Plus if you stop Shroomish from evolving into Breloom, it will eventually learn spore at Lv 45. A 100% sleep inducing move and only the second pokemon in the game able to learn that move
