How does Tapu Bulu have plants on it????
The db page said it was a grass type so im just assuming it has something to do with plants in some way, shape or form, i dont know gen 7 very well
Wait but what is an Obamasnow, I think you mean Abomasnow. Pls edit your answer
Obamasnow is a meme, its a play on of Obama the previous President and the pokemon. I have no intentions on removing that pun-- i love obama
Tapu Bulu definitely doesn't have any plant based inspiration, though. It's a grass type because it's inspired by the Hawaiian god of agriculture.
Okay understandable i will remove him, thanks for clarifying that
Isn’t putting Obamasnow technically biased in some way? I mean, also you are kind of talking about politics in public

Yes? Theres a lot of Grass types that are directly based off plants, which is why I just provided a link.
At that point, why dont you just make a list of grass types that *arent* plant based? OP asked for a list of plant pokemon, youre basically telling OP to look it up himself
Fair, I'll edit it.
No wait can i do it?
Oops, didn't see your comment until after I edited. Sorry! Anything you disagree with on that list?
