The setup, as you call it, only lasts 5 turns. You only really need a tank or two to stop it as the whole point is hyper offense after the trick room then once you tank it out, your team is super vulnerable until you switch back into your trick room setter and use it again wasting 2 turns, assuming your opponent even lets you get it up again, and if you have it on 2 guys, you use 2 moveslots as well.

The whole reason rain and sun teams were such a big deal in gen 5 was casue all you had to do was switch in Politoed/Ninetails/TTar, and you got instant sun/rain/Sand, not using another move or a moveslot, also there were a bunch of other advantages on those weather condtions besides just speed

Can it work once in a while against unprepared teams. Yes. Will it consistently work against good teams? Never. It is absolutely the definition of a gimmick team

It's meant to be, but it's not. Fighting has just as many strengths with only 3 weaknesses. Especially since most Ice Types are slow and defensive, despite having a horrible typing, it means they got bodied no matter what. And then there's fucking Alolan Sandslash, who they decided to give two 4x weaknesses to two of the most common types

Yeah, I feel like I see Thundurus and Zapdos fairly often too, but that was a while back. Might see more of them with the addition of Tapu Koko and Xurkitree in gen 7, but I see your point.

I feel like most of the things I like about Grass types are the annoying moves they get access to rather than any specific type interactions. Everyone but other grass types is weak to spore. My Amoongus is the star of my doubles team, and basically the only thing that can slow him down is other grass types, so I've learned to respect them.

I'm assuming you meant Bug/Steel rather than Grass/Bug

Also, only resists one common offensive type? I was under the impression that both Electric and Ground were fairly common offensive types, and while water is less common as an offensive powerhouse, water types in general are very common, tons of teams have scald.

Grass types are more useful in doubles battles to be honest, Venusaur and Amoongus are fantastic as tanky support pokemon (and if you have to deal with them using sleep powder or spore and rage powder respectively, you'll certainly wish your mons were immune to powder). They can also do a ton of self-healing, which is why they need so many weaknesses in order not be unbalanced, and why Mega Venusaur with Thick Fat can be such a pain to deal with.

Again, not denying that they have serious flaws, but if I've learned anything about pokemon, it's that if you're disregarding an entire type, you're not thinking hard enough.

Yeah, my mistake.

I haven't played Gen 7 but i almost never see electric types besides Rotom-W. And water is so common because its a great defensive type. Scald has crappy base damage in any case, if a water type is using scald odds are they're a tank using it for the burn.

I still use them. I just think that they're bad.

That's not ice. Ice is objectively the worst type, especially since fairies have been introduced which makes their role gens 1-5 obselete. Being weak to stealth rocks makes them even worse, and being weak to 4 of the most offensive typings and common typings, steel fire fighting rock, makes them terrible.

"Objectively"

In all seriousness, grass isn't actually that bad, especially since they made them all immune to powders and stuff, and given how many things are x4 weak to grass. I certainly wouldn't say that grass is one of the best types, but I wouldn't say they are bad either. Grass pairs really well with a lot of types too.

Kinda sucks ass that they are downgraded in pokemon GO.
And the fact that so many of them are part poison isn't helping, way to cancel out the advantage over ground tho.

Five weaknesses and three of which are very common offensive types. Four resistances and only one of which is a common offensive type. Resisted by seven types. And super effective against 3 types, only one of which is a common defensive type. And who uses powder type moves? Oh yeah its 90% grass types. (And bug types but they're super effective anyway.) Other than Grass/Steel, it kills any dual typing its a part of. (And Grass/Bug does it just as good.
