So, Let's talk about Grass types

Well, for my next set of blogs, I wanna do a review of a certain type. Given my namesake, I thought it'd be appropriate to start with Grass type Pokemon. Yes, I know that @winstein already did this. In fact, that's where I got this idea. If you haven't read his Grass types review (starting here,) go do that. Like, right now. It's okay, I'm a patient guy. I can wait.
Are you finished? No? Then go and finish already.
Frankly, Winstein did a fantastic job with his Grass type reviews (he's also done Poison, Ghost and Dark.) I could never hope to match his dedication and attention to detail. Which is why I won't even try. This review will be solely opinion based. I'll be rating every Grass type based purely on my impressions of them. If you want something more technical, nuanced, and somewhat more objective, go read Winstein's reviews (you should have done that already. Have you been lying to me?) Because really, they're amazing. I know, I'm repeating myself a lot, but I cannot heap enough praise for Winstein's work. That man did a terrific job. And yes, I'm aware that I'm shamelessly plugging another user's work instead of talking about my own, but really, have you read his reviews? Hint: If the answer is 'no,' then you're doing it wrong.
Anyway, on to my thing, as I've already stated, my ratings will be solely opinion based. I will not get into the anime or the card games since I have next to no experience with those (as in, I haven't really touched either since fifth grade,) and again, Winstein took care of that. I might go into their origins and other such things, as well as their in-game and competitive impact. I will go into aesthetics and how they (dis)please me. I'll give my personal reviews for what Winstein has dubbed the "celebrity specialists" ie. important trainers who use Grass types. Lastly, I'll give my own opinions on how to fix the Grass types. You may have noticed, if you read Winstein's reviews (which you did, riiiight?) that I'm shamelessly stealing some of his categories. Yes, yes I am. He had very good ideas and frankly, I'm just following his lead. He has even more reviews (including unexplored type combos, and ideas for new Grass types, among others) but I'm just gonna do the ones that I feel comfortable talking about (I'm not so good on the creative side of things.)
Anyway, just to mix it up a little, my first review will start with the Unova Grass types and I'll work my way down from there.
So yeah...I hope you guys like this and find it interesting to read.
Now, go and read Winstein's reviews (you cheater.)
