Who are the Grass Gym Leaders?


Grass Gym Leaders are Trainers that specialise in the training and battling with Grass type Pokémon. They proved their ability and have become leaders of a City Gym. 

Throughout the Pokémon game series, players have to defeat Gym Leaders before challenging the Elite Four and finally the existing Champion in order to win the games. Within the games, a number of Gym Leaders only use Grass type Pokémon. To date there are no Elite Four members that specialise in Grass Pokémon.

To have the best chance of defeating Grass Gym Leaders, the player’s team should include those Pokémon types that are strong when attacking Grass types – Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice and Poison type Pokémon.

Detailed below is a complete Grass Gym Leaders list, in alphabetical order, with information about that Leader and the Pokémon they typically use in battles.
