- That Distant Shore
Grookey is the newly revealed Grass Starter for Pokemon Sword and Shield. It's obviously based on a monkey, and it also seems to have an inspiration in the sport of cricket (with the stick he holds).
Why Grookey?Smash could really use more plant users. We only have two characters that have any notable connection to plants ( and ), and Grookey could use them in a very different way. It the short trailer that revealed him, he was seen regrowing some grass. While this might just be for effect, a character able to grow plants would be very intersting. And if the Cricket aspect is true, he could also be a sport character!
