This is for a MonoType Grass Team (Gen 7) Sun and Moon

I am trying to think of Grass Pokémon that are more than capable of checking steel type Pokémon especially

  • Heatran
  • Celesteela
  • Mega Scizor

These 3 Pokemon are big threats to a Mono-Grass Type

I was trying to think of Grass Pokémon that can learn either one of more of the following maybe

  • Flamethrower
  • Thunderbolt
  • Earth Power
  • Thunderpunch
  • Fire Punch
  • Earthquake
  • Close Combat
  • Mach Punch
  • Any Fire Move to dent Mega Scizor

That said any suggestions will be appreciated
Dual Type Pokémon are welcome as long as it's a Grass Pokémon or part Grass.

What are some good Grass Pokémon that are capable of checking Heatran, Celesteela, and Mega Scizor?

You already posted this question recently. I am assuming that this newer version is the one you would like to have live, so I took down your original one so that this one could go up. If this isn't how you wanted it, let me know and I'll make the changes so you have what you like.
Original post for reference: https://pokemondb.net/pokebase/282416/
Mega Venusaur with HP Fire for Scizor and Earthquake for Heatran. Also beats Celesteela 1v1.
Mega Venusaur is pretty much the only good answer. I guess grass just isn't that good of a type.
Yup Mega Venusaur is in my Team

That's actually the challenge of a Grass-Team but its a challenge and I want to make it work :)

I wish there was a Fire/Grass type thou it be a super great check to these 3.

Anyways Mega Venusaur will be good to start.
A Breloom with mach punch and an Alolan Exeggutor with flamethrower should also help. If you ever use Exeggutor, you should nickname it "facepalm".
Lol ha thanks
Yes Breloom looks interesting
Mach Punch would be a 2 OHKO on Heatran I believe

Alolan Exeggutor hmm feel like slapping a Choice Specs on this guy if it learns Flamethrower.

Probably Enough to OHKO Celesteela
I think it gets outspeed and kill by Mega Scizor thou
The only one I'd use that comes to mind is venusaur; who I believe can learn earthquake via TM... also, I'm sure there are some grass types like breloom, as sumwun said, or chesnaught that can learn some powerful fighting type moves that'll help quite a bit.
...but I love running sunnydayasaur too too much for all that lol...
Wow, this question has really got me thinking. Hp fire venusaur would b so epic.
Also torterra would probably be really good.
Yea it's hard .
Mega Venusaur will definitely be my Mega

Breloom is on my team too so far to check Heatran

I added Cradily to check Fire, Ice, Bug, and Flying Types for the team too but gets completely wreck by Celesteela and Mega Scizor

3 more Grass Types to add

Now for checking Celesteela.
Oops meant to comment on this thread. They gunna steal mah points lol. Let's battle Bchen49
You could use sceptile too. I'm just gonna keep getting ideas now
Regular Sceptile won't help much, and mega Sceptile is worse than mega Venusaur.
Why not? His speed is nasty. Just thrown on earthquake and brick break and with the right item it would be do-able. im trying to thk of all the grass types that might work. Honestly, i don't see why not just throw on another fire type mon w solar beam( if u needed grass type moves for your team)
....but ya wouldn't b my first choice regardless
Its attack stats aren't the best and it's checked by most priority attacks.
Well, alolan eggeutor sounds like the best choice to me. But he says he still needs 3 more, so that's tough. Unless he just meant 3 more to choose from.

Best answer

Since this question has been answered and will soon become archived among the thousands of other questions, I might as well list all the grass types that others came up with.

Stuff that is known to work
Mega Venusaur - fire hidden power
Breloom - mach punch
Tapu Bulu - superpower
Cradily - earthquake
Serperior - fire hidden power

Stuff that might work
Tangrowth - fire hidden power and earthquake
Chesnaught - drain punch
Virizion - sacred sword or focus blast
Dhelmise - earthquake
Roserade - fire hidden power

If you came up with something that isn't listed here, that's probably because I decided that it had too many weaknesses to be good (a common problem with grass). This is the case with Shaymin, Celebi, and Silvally. I didn't list mow Rotom because it doesn't learn good moves that are super effective against steel.

I like breloom a lot too for this. That'd also be one of my top choices.
I put Breloom on my team
Heatran won't like taking a Mach Punch to the face.
If you add the pokemon I added and on to your list Ill mark yours the best answer :P
Choice specs Alolan eggecutor with flamethrower was pretty awesome. Or even a life orb with some way for him to recover. But I guess that's just spec-ulating. Haha get it(;
Which Pokemon did you add on my list?
Done. (12 characters)

I think that your best bet for a Pokemon is Ludicolo. Ludicolo is a Water/Grass type that counters Steel types with ease. A possible moveset is:
[email protected] Life Orb
Ability: Rain Dish
Hydro Pump
Giga Drain
Rain Dance
Ice Beam
Hope I helped! :-)

It has nothing against Ferrothorn.
Focus Blast :)
