Why specifically grass? We don't call Fire type, Torch type. We don't call Water type, Pond type. Plant type, Nature type, and Flora type would all work so much better.

Flame is still pretty generic and all encompassing. Grass is specially one group of plants.

I agree that Plant Type would work better. But grasses are by far the most widespread of all plant types, not to mention how important grass is in the Pokemon world. So...yeah; Game Freak.

It sounds better.

And "nature" Pokemon could include a lot more than plant/flower Pokemon, that's very broad.

I would have gone with Plant type too. Maybe GF thought it would be confusing to have animal-based Pokemon classified as Plant-type. Anyway, fungi based Pokemon are wrongly classified in either case.

I've never really thought about this, but you make a good point. While all grass types have characteristics of plants very few actually have traits of an actual "grass" plant. It really should have been plant type tbh.
