Croton: Level 5 Male Venusaur
Venusaur (Grass/Poison): Venusaur are the fastest of their line but are not particularly agile. They have eight vines, which means they can hit and grab multiple things at once and that attacks made using their vines are slightly more powerful. As starter Pokémon, their Grass-type attacks are slightly more powerful when they drop below 1/4 health. In it's Mega Form it gains a thick layer of cellulose in their skin similar to Hariyama's fat. Due to this it takes half the damage it would otherwise take from Ice and Fire type attacks.
Grass-type Pokémon live anywhere that can support vegetation, though most prefer temperate to tropical climates, and are adept at concealing themselves in areas with lots of vegetation. Grass-types enjoy both bright sun and rain and fight more enthusiastically in the day time, though they are not put off by fighting at night. Rainstorms will heal them slightly every round the rain falls, while excessively bright sunlight will regenerate their energy instead. Healing moves cost slightly less energy when used by Grass-types and their draining moves will heal them by a greater amount (without draining any more from the opponent) while suffering only half of the usual diminishing returns. They are immune to spore based techniques like Sleep Powder and are more adept at using such attacks themselves, creating denser concentrations of spores which are harder to disperse and more potent in their effects.
Poison-type Pokémon are highly resistant to poisoning. Their Poison-type attacks are slightly more likely to succeed in poisoning their targets than those used by other Pokémon and the effects will be slightly more potent. They also have an additional 5% chance to poison the target when using physical attacks with their most venomous appendages e.g. a Seviper's tail, a Nidoking's horn.
Bio: Croton enjoys spreading fertility, verdancy and greenery wherever he goes. So much, that he developed a new move, basing off one that he already had access to.
Hidden Power: Dark
Mega Stone: Venusaurite
Special Move: Super Grassy Terrain (Grass)
Croton expends heavy energy to spread invigorating Grass Energy across the whole arena, causing various flowers, grass and plants to grow, even in urban or rugged environments. For the next 5 rounds, all Grass Type Pokemon touching the ground will regenerate mild health and energy per round, and Grass Moves will be 10% stronger for no increased energy cost, while Fire Moves will go down by the same amount. This can be used twice per match and Croton can no longer use Grassy Terrain.
Approving Post

So this sig has almost no drawback whatsoever. The increased Grass damage comes with no energy increase, over the course of the five turns Venusaur would've regenerates a net total of moderate energy, heavy energy if he lasts for the full ten turns. Additionally, since the move now only affects Grass types, an enormously large majority of Pokemon that would've been affected by regular Grassy Terrain no longer receive the healing and that in most matchups it becomes a free 1-2 HB of health and moderate-heavy energy. He also doesn't lose any moves of consequence, as regular Grassy Terrain is completely overshadowed by this and thus there would be no reason to use it over the sig.
