Petilil and Lilligant have the distinction of being the only pure Grass types that are always female. Lilligant is also the only non-Bug-type Pokemon that can learn Butterfly Dance, which raises special attack and speed, complementing her stats nicely. Like Whimsicott, it's worth thinking about a combination of status and offensive moves for  Lilligant. Sleep Powder is always a good option, especially since putting your enemy to sleep can help give you time to boost your stats with Butterfly Dance.

    What a great trade for Cottonee in black, comes with Leech Seed, so I have it holding a Big Root for better leech seed.

    Status symbol Pokemon! I see they're finally addressing certain gaps that the universe created for itself. All of the new Grass types make it a point to say how bitter they are. It's like Game Freak wants to stamp out the idea of people eating Pokemon.
