If you’re trying to trim the leaves of a Venasaur or Sceptile, our grass Pokémon weakness guide is here to help. We’ve also got all the grass Pokémon strengths and resistances, so you can plan how to take on a plant-life Pokémon specialist if the need ever arises. Either way, Exeggutor better look out.

Anyway, let’s get into our grass Pokémon weakness guide.
With every game from the series featuring a grass-type starter Pokémon, you need to know what you’re dealing with as soon as possible. There are plenty of grass Pokémon weaknesses, with five different types that hit for super-effective damage. No matter what Pokémon you come up against, if you think it might have a move belonging to one of the types above, it’s always a good idea to switch out into something that can tank a hit rather than let your grass-type wither.
If you need to counter a water-, ground-, or electric-type Pokémon, that’s where the grass-type shines. Unlike other typings, there isn’t an immunity for grass Pokémon, but with the amount of different Pokémon species under the three types grass resists, it’s always a good idea to have a grass Pokémon in your party of six.
- Ground Pokémon
- Water Pokémon
- Rock Pokémon
While grass Pokémon might have plenty of weakness, they do at least have a few typings that they hit for double damage, exploiting the ground Pokémon weakness, water Pokémon weakness, and rock Pokémon weakness. Remember, if a Pokémon has dual typing like ground/water or rock/ground, grass hits for four times damage, so watch out for those matchups.
