Grass type should be named something else?

There are types that make sense like Fire, Water etc. but Grass sounds strange doesn't it? It's so specific to one type of thing. Surely there are other names that would suit the type better. Mainly Plant. Or Nature. Any suggestions welcome.

No no, this is purely about renaming the type. Everything about it stays the same. Grass is actually my favourite type, just the name of it has always seemed strange to me.

I feel like GRASS is a very simple way to put it.
I wish Blastoise was my dad. He wouldn't beat my mom like what her boyfriend, Johnny does. If Blastoise was my dad things would be different around here.

lol you...

I kinda like nature type, but then normal and water would probably be lumped in it.

They should call it Leaf type if anything. Almost all grass pokemon have leaves.

Nope. Although I know that Vacuole type would be more scientifically accurate (because fungi also have them), it wouldn't roll of the tongue as well.

Grass is simple yes, but it's just so specific and strange to class grass as a whole type of plants that have nothing to do with actual grass. That's like calling Water type puddle type instead. Remember Flying type was originally going to be Bird, but was changed later, probably due to the fact that not all flying types are actually birds. Seems strange to me that Grass was left as is that's all.

Should probably have been something different to begin with, but it ought to stay how it is now.
