    No clue, considering it's *also* stereotypically male to be a farmer.

    I don't calculate stat values, nor do I care about natures. I just catch my Pokemon the way they are, and play the game normally. If you agree copy and paste this into your sig.

    I once came up with a Grass type trainer called Forrester. I guess there is some girlishness to the type, but there aren't too many flower pokemon, and the rest of them are pretty kickbutt if you ask me. (Not that Venusaur isn't kickbutt and it has a flower) The Grass type desperately needs a male representative.

    Who knows. There have only been two Grass-type gym leaders anyways. Who says they won't make a male Grass-type gym leader for the next generation?

    I'd really like to see a Dark-type gym leader though. If they continue with the little puzzles you have to do before getting to the gym leader for the next generation, I'd like to see what they could come up with for a Dark gym...though it'd probably just be like dark in the gym or something.

    Considering that Gamefreak has gone more in the direction of flower arranging (Pretty petal flower shop, Erika....) rather than farming, that's probably why. Besides, I've never seen a "wheat" or "corn" grass Pokemon, mostly flowers or weeds, and the occasional plantXanimal hybrids.

    Its not only Gym Leaders, there hasn't been a male grass-oriented trainer, just an Aroma Lady.

    I think a better question would be: why no Grass-type E4? I mean, Water and, more recently, Fire got one (there was even a Champion specializing in Water).

    Yup, classes again. I'm gonna be at this for a while.

    Who was the Water Elite 4 member again? All I remember that can be considered even remotely close to water was Lorelei, and that's just because most ice types were part water back then.

    Grass types have alot of weaknesses defensively speaking. You could theoritically use a strong fire type and it can decimate the team single-handedly.

    When there are more grass types with combinations that cover all their weaknesses, then there may be a candidate for a grass specialist E4 member.

    There isn't a female electric gym leader either.

    I guess spencer doesn't count for anything.

    Neway, it seems there have been biases towards different types getting specific trainers. I mean, up until the latest generations it seemed only men could handle fire and fighting pokemon, and then they gave us Flannery and the girl from veilston(can't remember her name). Therefore, since they've slowly begun to break such a trend, we might get a male grass trainer.

    PDL- That's true, but isn't that true for most of the elite 4 members? I mean, I went straight through Lance in fire red with only my sceptile, loreilli with my raichu, drake with my charizard, steven with my herracross. If you can find one really strong pokemon with the right abilities, you can easily defeat and team of weaker pokemon.

    Spenser's a Frontier Brain, and in terms of the games has had no grass Pokemon. In terms of the Anime, only half of four of the Pokemon we see him use are grass, and unlike Flint, his ther two pokemon lack a "grass-theme" towards them. Even when Flint had only two fire types, his Steelix had a fire theme in terms of how its iron body came to be, and Drifblim is a hot air baloon. Considering that Region-specific Pokemon didn't really matter for them here, it wouldn't be hard to load Spencer with grass pokemon if they so wished it.

    PDL, there are a lot of good grass tpyes like Tangrowth and Ludicolo. They aren't that defensively worse than Fire-types, though the problem is that very few good grass types are ever included pre-E4.

    A frontier brain is a leader, and the title of this is "why has there never been a male grass type leader?" That's why I brought his name up. Also, as this is the general discussion, I was also makeing reference to the anime, in which he had a general grass trainer theme other than his final pokemon used. Thanks for bringing up the point about Flint though, it does help with my case.
