Since 1995, people have been trying to catch them all in Pokémon! That's 25 years of fan art created by dedicated fans. Like the previously list, Pokémon: 10 Pieces of Fire Pokémon Fan Art We Love, this list features one of the three starter types of Pokémon, grass. Arguably the hardest type to start with, grass Pokémon have the weakest stats. When combined with the poison type, they become the type with the most weaknesses. But there are definitely pros to using these hard to master types, which Screen Rant lists in detail via 15 Reasons Why Grass-Type Pokemon Are The Best Starters.
As of Generation VIII, there are 117 different grass Pokémon, an even greater number than fire types! So check out Pokémon: 10 Pieces of Grass Pokémon Fan Art We Love below and be sure to click on the links to the artists' portfolios so you can give the creators the support they deserve!
Currently on the art print store of Jody aka DizzieSkizze on Tumblr, this "Grass Type" titled print includes a beautiful assortment of grass Pokémon from the first seven generations. The clever four-pronged leaves divide the Pokémon into sections, further divided by Tangrowth's long arms. Plus a bunch of Pokémon, notably all starters and their evolved forms, are chilling on top of a Trevenant. It shows a lot of forethought by the artist with how meticulous every detail is in this print and results in a piece of fan art that's really fun to look at.9 Frenzy Plant (2016)
Created by kimardt, this huge collage of grass Pokémon is titled "Frenzy Plant (2016)". The creator also includes in the description a link to the original group picture that was created back in 2011, showing how their art has improved over the past five years. The fan art, created before Pokémon Sun and Moon (2016) came out, does not include any Pokémon Generation VI onwards besides the at the time newly announced Rowlett.
The artist manages to include every single grass starter and their evolutions from Generation I to V in here, along with fan-favorite Pokémon such as the legendary Celebi and super small versions of Bellossom, Paras, and more! The "and more" would take about an hour to list, so enjoy this Where's Waldo-esque Pokémon fan art. Can you find the Burmy?
A bunch of Grookey fan art has been popping up since the Pokémon was unveiled as the grass starter for Generation VIII (Pokémon Sword and Shield). Posted on DeviantArt by Suesanne, this adorable Grookey fan art shows cherry blossoms falling above a smiling starter holding an apple. The background compliments this grass monkey Pokémon, not taking away our main focus on Grookey but instead adding to its adorableness with subtle touches of shadows. Plus the artist does a great job showing how happy Grookey looks, from his cute bulging eyes to his wide-open grin.7 Grass Sanctuary
Posted on DeviantArt by michellescribbles and available for purchase on Etsy, this "Grass Sanctuary" piece is one part of a three-part "Sanctuary" series featuring grass, water, and fire sanctuaries. The level of detail accomplished here with what looks like deceptively simple linework is astounding. Venusaur's back is lush with flowery life and looks even better surrounded by Ivysaurs and Bulbasaurs, each one with a slightly different design.
You'll notice more in the picture the longer you look at it. From the Metapods hanging around on the left to the Parasects chilling among the mushrooms, this scenic view puts a nice little spin on the traditional Pokémon style.

When Pokémon Sun and Moon starters were unveiled, DeviantArt creator SirAquakip had the fun idea to design his own versions of grass starter Rowlet's evolutions before they were revealed. Working off of the idea that the starter trio would be based on Circus tropes, the artist shows Rowlet's evolution into a ringmaster combined with some archer themes! As the comments on the piece suggest, his concept for "Barnumowl" is arguably more interesting to look at then Rowlett's actual final form, Decidueye! When you can design Pokémon arguably better than the actual creators, you deserve to be on this list!5 Grass Buds
These eight "Grass Buds" were turned into buttons by DeviantArt creator RileyKitty. Each button features one of eight grass starters from Pokémon in their "natural" environment, going about their daily grind.
The top row from left to right includes the Generation I starter Bulbasaur picking daisies with his vines, the Generation II starter Chikorita frolicking in a field full of flowers, the Generation III starter Treecko hanging from a tree branch, and the Generation IV starter Turtwig nibbling on a leaf. The second row from left to right includes the Generation V starter Snivy resting on a cherry blossom branch, the Generation VI starter Chespin cautiously walking the plank via a tree branch, the Generation VII starter Rowlet flapping his wings in the sun, and the Generation VIII starter Grookey swinging off of a tree!

This piece is part of JoshuaDunlop's 'Pokemon Zoology' project, in which the creator translates the first 151 Pokémon into realistic-looking creatures by way of CG 3D sculpting, digital, and matte painting. He even provides timelapse footage on Youtube so fans can watch as he creates each Pokémon. It feels like stepping right into the Detective Pikachu (2016) movie! It was hard to pick just one of his creations to spotlight, but in the end, let's take a look at Paras. He looks so real, thanks to his crab-like body and his eyes, which are reminiscent of some deep-sea creatures. The level of detail on everything, from the hairs on the skin to the material on the mushrooms, makes this a stellar realistic Pokémon project.3 Grass Leaf
"Grass Leaf" is an adorable chibization featuring a variety of grass-type Pokémon by pikaole on DevianArt. Our cute little line-up here includes Pokémon from seven generations!
Starting on the top row and going from left to right is the mythic Celebi giving us a cheeky wink, Petilil, Bbounsweet, the Generation II starter Chikorita, the Generation VI starter Chespin, Fomantis, Budew, Whimsicott, the Generation IV starter Turtwig, Cerubi, Bellsprout, Oddish, Swadloon, Hoppip and we end with the classic Generation I starter Bulbasaur! These Pokémon are all smiles too, except for Petilil, who somehow looks even cuter with no mouth and rosy cheeks!
Created shortly after Rowlet's final evolution, Decidueye, was announced, this fan art was created by DeviantArt user Blunell. This piece shows a determined-looking Decidueye protecting two teary-eyed Rowlets with a trusty bow and arrow. The emotions on all of their faces really set the tone of the piece, especially Decidueye's piercing eyes! The level of detail included in the wings alone, where you can see each individual feather, is impressive. Plus it has the perfect forest setting for such a dramatic scene! The blur at the tops of the trees and over the sky adds something to the piece as well.1 Those Strange Creatures.
Ending on a different note, we have a sculpture of Venasaur created by KinokoKoneko on DeviantArt. The piece was made with super sculpey and sculpey firm, then painted with acrylics. The creator talked about how they went for a more beast-like approach to Venasaur, making it stand out from the typical frog-look the Pokémon is usually given. KinokoKoneko also wanted to give it a Totoro-esque feel, which this sculpture definitely nails. The smile also makes it look like this Pokémon is happy to see you! The techniques used to sculpt the piece were pulled from the book Creature Sculpt by verdantSculpts.
