Best Rock and Ground Pokemon
The Top Ten Best Rock and Ground Pokemon
Tyranitar is awesome get curse, to raise attack and defense, lower speed which is good. Payback over crunch, because crunch says 80 and payback says 50, but payback is 100 if you are last, and you will be since you are slower because of curse. Avalanche, because it says 60, ice beam says 95, same accuracy, but if you go second avalanche is 120, which is better than ice beam, plus the curses physical attack boost, and ice beam is a special attack anyways. Rock slide or stone edge, stone edge is better with a high critical hit, but go for rock slide since it has curses attack boost and STAB, and has 100 accuracy, you probably wont even need stone edges extra power. Stopne edge can hit enemies that are in the air, but it would probably miss. So go for rock slide. Go for the brave nature, raise attack and lower speed, since 2 moves require going last, and hlod a focus band. You will be unstoppable with this tyranitar. I have it, and I never lose!
Tyranitar reminds me a lot like Godzilla seeing as they're both similar to each other.
Tyranitar has some awesome powers and attacks.
Personally he's one of my favourite Pokemon.
He's beast he can learn outrage and earthquake so skarmory is the only thing that resits it but you could use stone edge and he's unstoppable
Simply the best stats in the type, and no real drawbacks. Also it makes me hard.
Golem would be the best to me because of how easily it can be obtained as a Geodude or Graveler, and then trained to become a super powerful rock beast! It's one of those Pokemon that is good for everything; either being an HM slave, or a Pokemon to add to your team at the beginning of the game. Even though Tyranitar is the best, as a Larvitar, it's hard to get into your party, being that it can only be obtained after beating the Elite 4.
Golem shouldn't be this high up. Sure, its attack and defense is great but it is slow and its special defense is laughable. I'm not saying he is bad, he is just not that great either. He isn't fast enough to attack anything and his only real use is being a physical wall or just using explosion. Not to mention two of the most common moves, (Surf and Earthquake), are super effective against it.
I'm just greatly disappointed about the fact Tyranitar is in first. He's not even a ground type Pokemon! Ridiculous, anyone voting for Tyranitar on this list is very ignorant. Golem's clear cut first even with Tyranitar, Golem's sturdy insures him ztleast move, and Golem's built for Attacks to kill instantly, with Brick break, Focus blast, Hammer arm, or focus punch would instantly kill Tyranitar, who doesn't belong on this list in the first place. Just a very disapointing day to see the 31 rated Pokemon isn't even the correct typing
He may be slow, but thanks to rock polish he is the ultimate sweeper! Good hp, awesome attack, and beastly defense!
Aggron is a true tank of the world of Pokemon, it needs to be in the top 5.
Most of his moves are tank-like and strong, both his Rock and Steel moves (Rock Tomb, Iron Head, Rock Slide, Iron Tail, Take Down, Double-Edge and more). Strong defense. Alright attack.
And like someone else said, his Mega Evolution has the highest Stats of Pokemon History.
He's a metal tank. He should at least be in the top 5. Plus, Aggron looks so cool, and scary that my cousins are afraid of him.
Why is onix rank one more than Aggron. Mega Aggron Bast defense stats 230 which is so much more than onix. Steelix have 200 base defense stat.
Okay, I love this guy, he's a beast. But he doesn't belong on this list. Why? HE'S NOT A GROUND TYPE! He's Rock/Steel. Just like Aerodactyl and Tyranitar, a non-ground Pokemon ends up on this lost. I'm ashamed that this list is filled with people who know nothing about the typing of Pokemon.
Its awesome because its one of the few powerhouses everyone can get
even though it has a lot of weaknesses its strong enough to survive a hit from nearly all of them
Rhydon I can't even explain it's a huge attacker but it doesn't have speed it's got great defense it's a rock rhino who doesn't like that its got awesome moves but one thing I don't like is it's evolution what th hell it's so ugly I hate it it has a thing on its head and have you seen its arms there hammers but other than that it's awesome by jack Scott if you know ace trainer Liam then drop a like.
God, I love Rhydon. But what is Tyranitar doing up in first? It's not even ground type! It's rock and dark!
This group type Pokemon is straight up an OP tank, personally he's my favourite Pokemon but I don't mind tyranitar being first, because his a tank and damager. But still though rhydon Is really cool
This Pokemon is AMAZING in Fire Red, due to his amazing abilities and small, but useful move pool. Rock Head allows him to use Double-Edge without taking any recoil damage, allowing it to spam it over and over. Also, in Fire Red, before the Physical/ Special split, he could make use of Ancient Power, which was physical at the time, and could potentially raise his massive attack and speed as well as the rest of his stats all at once. He is a beast, and with the new mega evolution, it gets even better with his even larger speed and attack. I absolutely love this guy and use it on my team every chance I get. Also, I don't know why, but the name Fluffy really seems to suit him well and always gave me a good laugh.
Aerodactyl is a beast. In Fire Red, I chose Bulbasaur as my starter. And I knew that I needed a Rock type to take care of Charizard in the Champion Battle. And in the battle, HE WRECKED CHARIZARD WITH JUST ROCK SLIDE! And Aerodactyl was awesome. I taught him Toxic for long battles, Fly for STAB and can avoid Aerodactyl from taking damage while Toxic is in effect in the first turn, then wrecking them when Aerodactyl flies down. And finish them off with Rock Slide. Not enough? Double-Edge! And thanks to Rock Head, he won't take recoil damage. I just love this guy
Ok I can see tyranitar being first but aerodactyl has amazing speed. Mega Aerodactyl is the fastest Pokemon of all time. Notice I said MEGA Aerodactyl not regular Aerodactyl. but regular aerodactyl is still top 5 fastest. has good move pool. Rock head allows it to use strong attacks like take down without recoil. And if you r going to say tyranitar is the best, you have to say agron is right up there with it because they are almost the same Pokemon if you think about it. Aggron is only steel instead of dark. They both have good attack and defense both slow. Both huge. Both are Armor Pokemon. The description for tyanitar decribes it as Armor Pokemon. The one for Aggron says Iron Armor Pokemon so they are pretty much the same thing.
Superbly fast, great defensively, ability of PRESSURE (which makes ground type moves hit flying types, Pokemon with levitate, etc.), that is an astounding rock type. Also, Tyranitar is a pseudo legendary, OBVIOUSLY people would like him,
Garchomp is one of the best physical sweepers and the various move type allow him to take any type. Poison Jab to take out fairy and brick break to take ice and the rest dragon claw or earthquake
One of the best pokemon ever this guy should be on top
Garchomp is the best dragon type but it is a really really really really really really good ground type
I love gible to bits but this guy is so damn cool he's like a shark with legs and arms and awesomeness all in one hello yeah
How is he not number 1? He can take down all his weaknesses with ice beam.
Swampert by all means is a fantastic Pokemon. Its design is cool and intimidating without having to be very complex. It's mythology and concept is unique as far as ground and water types are concerned. It stats are also fantastic and it is very versatile as far as the roles it can play in battle. Its high defenses and decent move-pool can allow it to tank like no other ground type can, both physically and specially, especially with its typing of water/ground giving it only one weakness, grass, which it can cover with ice beam. It can also be a good support with toxic and stealth rock in it arsenal Now with its mega, you can be a mixed sweeper with its ability swift swim, so long as you are in the rain. Not to mention its already high defenses are buffed up in mega as well. The only thing it can do is be an outright wall, but it doesn't matter that much considering its already amazing as a tank. I don't see why Swampert isn't number one, but opinions are opinions so I guess its fine.
Who the hell taught Swampert Ice Beam? Take advantage of its physical strength, not special attack. Wasn't really much of a power player until his mega came out. With increases in attack, and both defenses, and new Swift Swim Ability, this guy is an absolute terror in any double or triple team centered around Rain Dance/Drizzle. Would substitute ice punch instead of ice beam to counter grass types, which will just absolutely destroy him, easily in one hit.
Swampert only has one weakness and that is grass. Any other Pokemon he can walk toe to toe with. Not to mention that he can learn ice beam an take out any grass that gets in his way. Good luck trying to bring him down without too much trouble
This anal-smashing rock worm will leave your girlfriends ice-cold heart in pieces.
Is a snake made of rock. I wonder how they made this. Probably glued some rocks and then some googly eyes.
I like him way more than Steelix because he's far faster than his evolved form. Dude with Earthquake, Stone Edge, Iron Tail, and either Iron Defense or Rock Polish, he's a beast. The main thing will be protecting him from special attacks...
It a huge giant rock snake, what is not to like about it?
Solid ground type pokemon, can easily defeat the pokemons above him in the list, nice attack and amazing speed for a ground pokemon
Sandslash both looks and is super awesome. It learns many awesome and powerful ground type moves like Earthquake, and because it is a ground type electric types are no problem. Sandslash is also faster than most other rock and ground types, except for perhaps aerodactyl.
Sandslash is so cool! Plus, if you train it from scratch, you get Sandshrew's cuteness as a bonus! Untill it evolves D:
Best Ground Type, could take out all others in the Top 10 with Earthquake, Rock Slide, and/or Slash. Sandslash is the clear choice.
A turtle with a tree growing on its back. This thing practically is its own ecosystem! It travels with a farm on its back! When underwater its an island. And when faced with a fire type: Earthquake is a perfect solution.
My favorite pokemon ever! A true beast an anchor for any team. Assault vest or light screen set up an bye bye. Best looking grass starter an one of the best looking period. Its sad he is used wrong by so many. Team Terra
When you get torterra to a high level his hp is nearly UNBEATABLE, also if you can teach him the right moves he can beat even any Pokemon.
Torterra could kill a swampert with leaf storm. Earthquake kills that pesky infernape so torterra deserves number one spot
This is my favorite, Tyranitar ain't bad either but I want Nidoking higher on the list beacuse he deserves it. I also noticed Steelix under here but he is not a ground/rock pokemon he is a steel pokemon so wrong catagori there
Huge move pool and just looks like such a beast! He can learn moves like sludge bomb and toxic but also earthquake and hyper beam. Generally just a really good pokemon
Being he can learn almost any move, that along with his immense strength make him one of the best Pokemon out there. He is a must have for almost any team build.
What by God's gorge is Tyranitar doing up there? Nidoking is really cute when he is Nidorhino. You do miss him, but NIDOKING is the best rock-type pokemon IN THE WORLD. P.S. I have him in figure. I love it!
Couldn't this awesome tank at least reach the top ten :( Gee whoever did this page must be blind at his beast power!
Rhyperior is the best rock type ever he is one of my favorite pokemon he tanks everthing I use him in almost ever pokemon team he should be at least top 10 because he is a BOSS!
I don't get it his pre evolution is in the top ten but he's not. he's my favourite Pokemon he's a machine he can learn rockwrecker earthquake superpower and that stone move that damages the opponent when they switch out. Plus he looks like a monster
RHYPERIOR is the best Rhyperior should be the number one because tyranitar is a rock dark Pokemon you idiot what
YES Donphan is awesome specially with an earthquake will do some major damage!
Ran gen 2 with only a donphan. Rollout for anything my ground moves couldn't handle. Sandstorm if you want some set up.
Donphan is a powerhouse, and is aggressive. Plus, it's a twist on an average elephant. Donphan is just amazing okay.
Come on, it evolves from the cutest poke ever, and rolls around
HELLO! It is a STEEL snake!
With 2nd best defense out of all known Pokemon who couldn't love this steel and ground Pokemon
It's body is the hardest thing even than a diamond. It's mega has the highest defense with aggron mega:230 how good is that?
Oh my god the iron snake Pokemon. sounds boss, looks boss, performs boss, is boss
I agree he can use every item execpet flame orb and toxic orb it has good attack it also my favourite Pokemon
Mine is awesome! He has great defense that take most attacks better than pretty much everything on the list! He can stall, he can attack and he can and should be in the top 10 at least!
This is the only legendary rock Pokemon. It rocks! - awesomezampinos
No One Can Stand Before REGIROCK'S WRATH. He is the best there.
It is best Pokemon ever especially with thick club
Bonemerang and Double Edge are very good attacks in their own right (especially because of Rock Head). What would make him killer is that he can learn Focus Energy, which means Stone Edge causes even more critical hits!
Should be first! It is awesome
With thick club his attack stat increases from 80 to 160.
Groudon is a PRO he should be at least first or secound. No way for tirantar of beating groudon. groudon is also by favorite pokemon. I loved him
Whats groudon doing all the way down here. It is behemoth the lord of all pokemon of ground type. It even gets a primal reversion that skyrockets its base stats to 760! This thing is the best of all ground types in pokemon and created the continents for regigigas to tow. Give groudon the respect it deserves. - Matt3370
Best pokemon in the world because it is a legendary pokemon and has a good color especially Shiny
Why is groudon 34 before Hippowdon? To me that is mentally impossible... Groudon should be at least in the top 3.
Ground and flying have had countless rivalries. Well my favorite moves are earthquake and roost, so I looked for a ground/ flying type Pokemon. BOOM! Once I saw Gliscor he became one of my favorite Pokemon, right behind Nidoking and Trevenant. He could learn earthquake and not get hit by earthquake because he was flying. He could use earthquake and not get hit by thunderbolt because he was ground! Not only did he have such a unique combo, he had decent speed and good defense! His move: Poison heal, not only makes him a tank, but put a toxic orb on him and he will be a great wall! Ice types may bring him down but with fire fang, my god, he will wreck. Toxic, Earthquake, Substitute, and Fire fang. Those moves are all you need. Just dish out earthquakes and fire fangs. If someone is hurting you then substitute and then toxic him. Then wait it out using substitute while still getting heals from poison heal. He will dies from toxic and then you beat him. Yes, it's tedious and difficult ...more - Jengaking
Whoever said that, I'd probably NOT go with Toxic or Substitute. I'd probably put Thunder Fang in there to deal with Water-types (many of whom can learn ice attacks) and either Protect or Rock Slide.
Ground AND Flying type? Now there's an awesome combo that just can't be beaten.
That long paragraph he posted makes me want to use gliscor more
Zygarde is an awesome pokemon with the fact he switches from rock to ground type, and he is a beast and deserves to be in the top ten
He should be in the top 5
Ummm but its stat total kinda stinks in the big picture
The legendary Pokemon can kick butt. Lands wrath can take out The Dull X legendary. And its powerful moves you can teach it like Draco meteor can Destroy the cool Y legendary Pokemon. And its design is great. And finally its ability can kill Xerneas and Yvetal's.
He smashes all rock types flying types electric types fire types dark types with the move set sacred sword close combat earthquake and rock slide
He should be in the top 5 because dude he is a legendary
Terrakion is smashing good Pokemon come on everyone he looks so awesome you can tell by his face and he is a rock and fighting even if he has loads of the weakness like water,grass and flying and others.
In gen 1, some trainer got all the badges using him along. I don't think the games stats do give Marowak any love
Strongest earthquake there is while holding a thick club!
Decent stats, great moveset, great in Pokemon gen 1, and an all around great pokemon
Graveler has such high attack power. I can't find anyone to trade with, so I am going to keep my Graveler. I don't HAVE to teach it Rock Slide or Stone Edge, its Rollout attack is unstoppable.
Graveler may be lame but when traded it evolves into Golem
I think archeops has amazing attack and defense. He is very cool looking. But it has a horrible ability
This guy is awesome and like slaking he has ability that nerves him because otherwise hed be to op
Sadly thrashed by aron
He sweeps teams for me
It's only weaknesses are Ice and Dragon and it has two immunities! Also if you don't evolve it's first per-evolved form and get to 73 it learns fissure.
And how will you make sure that Fissure hits? I'm not sure about ORAS but last time I checked he couldn't learn attacks like Foresight or Lock On.
Ever since I seen Jirachi Wish Maker the Flygon comes in Number 1 for Ground Types
My favorite Pokemon HOW IS IT 28! You can also teach it fly draco meteor earth power and earthquake
This should be in the top 5! WHY IS IT ONLY 28?!
He is so fragging legit!
Is he really the only T-Rex Pokemon? What the heck is ramparts is then? My whole life is a lie!
Why at 26? should be at number 1! well,he is still the best at crushing any pokemon
Awesome and I have a little equal face with Mario and I can learn volt switch
Mamoswine is amazing cause it can learn good ice and ground moves.
In Pokemon Soulsiver I beat the Elite Four with a level 100 Mamoswine.
I was A. Nube so I picked a terrible team when I went through. Platinum the first time, picked up a Swinub and was lucky enough to accidentaly evolve it, TANK TANK TANK it killed everything else star of my team
Nidoqueen is just bad ass. Always a star of my team. The bit of bulk she has defensively over Nidoking makes her just a bit more reliable in my opinion. I'd love to see a Mega for her.
Damnt this thing can be usefull for leads, toxic spikes leftovers..
To me krookodile's design screams, "hey, I'm going to crush something into bits! " And he's awesome in battle. He has a good move pool, and his abiltities are great. Intimidate or moxie is completely up to you. I like both of them but my vote goes for moxie. Cause you get higher attack for each opponent you knock out. Not to mention, it's immune to psychic and electric due to it being ground and dark. So get yourself a krookodile! DO IT NOW!
"KROOKODILE IS JUST BEAST! I mean sometimes it really sucks with his dark type weaknesses but otherwise he is an awesome killer!
It's a brave Pokemon and somehow if it can use all of its attacks it can be dangerous for opponent
Krookodile is the BEAST as ground-type pokemon
Gigalith may be slow but his special attack and defense are incredibly high. I think it has a better design then any of these Pokemon. Also I found a way were you don't have to trade it to evolve it. VOTE FOR GIGALITH!
Believe it or not, Gigalith can support the team very well, to my surprise
He is so cool! His shiny is blue! So Beautiful, like an Angel in a rock!
Soon cool! Great defense!
I think Dugtrio is really really cool. And also, I think he looks like a hotdog that is underground. He also looks nothing like a mole. And if he must be very very upset because his eyes are always angry. That's all.
It looks like turds no offense
Dugtrio is so awesome his speed is litteraly nuts so then you get a Fisuure in maybe
Really love it! It's kind of cute and Diglet is Ultra Cute. Another ground type Pokemon I like is Sandshrew and Phanby. Basically anything cute!
What are are all those boring Pokemon doing up there?!?! I can't believe you people voted piles of rocks ahead of the best ground type of all time! Excadrill is the best. End of story
Swords dance, earthquake, rock slide, and sandstorm with his ability sand rush, makes excadrill one of the most deadliest and dangerous sweepers in the series.
Excarill needs to be in the top ten! Are you kidding me? Earthquake plus swords dance just knocks all the others that are up there. My shiny excadrill is my best friend, never leaves my team. VOTE EXCADRILL!
Excadrill on the 26th? Can you guys stop voting for rock types cause this is obviously a list for the best ground type mons.
That's rock Pokemon with bug type. High Defense and Sp. Defense, and cute rock Pokemon.
It's so cute, and it's very powerful too. It's a legendary too, wha'd you expect?
DIANCIE IS SO AMAZING DUDE!
I LOVE it
It's like a giant, ancient warrior/robot! It's the best and can crush anyone plus it's also part ghost type and can fly from jets in it's feet! - sharkfin1997
Golurk looks different but has good stats
Golurk is my favourite pokemon
Golurk is a boss he is one of my favorite Pokemon and total beast he has a great moveset, stats, and he just looks amazing
Best ground type even if not don't deserve to be 29th...
It is hippowdon not hippodown.
My friend says he is good
His mimic is very cool.
Kabutops is the best fossil Pokemon. How is he so far down on the list.
He is the best not the rest
Its exactly like a tyrannitar, but dark. Why is it 40th when the normal tyrannitar is 1rst!
Its strong but cute vote for number1
It is adorable and if you train it loads without evolving it it will be very durable and it is so cute please vote for phanpyy!
He is really slow but can kinda can tank attacks
Very sow but does a lot of damage
He is underrated
Eruption is Groudon's signature move and numel is so common. !
Super high special defense and defense, nothing really hurts it especially if it uses curse.
It gets brine, which kinda works for it
Cradly is love, Cradily is life, he has 8 dicks and is always thirsty, it's a tank
Leol cradily is love
Quag, sire sire!
The original amphibian pokémon. Despite its low stats and limited movepool a good member for any in game team with a lot of viable builds. But mostly quagsire is just the chilliest mon ever, a real bro to hang out with. It has also only got one weakness, a deadly allergy to vegetables. But you were already considering ice punch as a coverage move on pretty much any pokémon, so that won't be a problem.
I always manage to have a shiny Quagsire on my team (nicknamed Kirby, because, ya know), and every time, Quagsire's been my ace.
Fear the giant salamander, guys.
I love his resistance to flying and fire and his x scissor is pretty awesome too. Can kick psychic and ghost types butt
Armaldo has the coolest and cutest look of all the rock types
I think Armaldo is cute. Golem sucks
Armaldo is my all time favorite rock type and my 3rd favorite Pokemon. His design is amazing (if you pretend his eyes are his ears) his movepool is decent, he has some good resistances, my first Pokemon to level 100 and my first Pokemon I raised after finding Heartgold and using the claw fossil, that is one decision in my life I do not regret and don't get me started on how cute anorith is
Incredible attack stat but it has horrendous speed. Only 58 base speed but 165 base attack. Its other stats are mediocre or just bad which is probably why it is so low.
It's so low because of Head Smash. Rampardos cannot have Rock Head ability, which means that Head Smash is probably going to hurt a lot! I don't like bothering with the recoil and thus I prefer to go with Stone Edge. This thing is fast af though, so it's all good!
How the hell is rampardos so low! It's head
Is made if solid rock
Best fossle Pokemon by far!
Why not the muscle building nostalgia giving footing head!
The poor thing gets dragged from its home on a rhyperiors paw only to get fired from the rhyperiors palm and get beat up by rhyperiors opponent poor geodude
ARE U FLIPPING KIDDING THIS SHOULD BE 1ST IT COULD KILL ZEKROM WITH 1 MAGNITUDE EVEN IF ZEKROM WAS level 100 HE SHOULD NOT BE DOWN HERE!
Also He Looks Like A Hotdog.
-Still Haven't Changed your Mind, Time To Re-Read!
I love Diglett! He's so cute!
The only fire and rock type I think and it makes a great edition to my all rock team
This Pokemon should be rated at least over rhydon because this guy has solid rock which lowers the attack power of super effective moves. This guy is immune to one hit KOs thanks to sturdy. Carracosta can have OP speed, when there is rain because of its ability swift swim. You can increase all of its stats by using shell smash, one of the best stat raising moves in all of Pokemon. Carracosta can beat up most of its weaknesses. Psychic types moves like zen headbutt against fighting types. Ice type moves against ground and grass types. Finally ground type moves against electric types. This Pokemon is as good as the ones in the top ten list.
Carracosta should be #1 because its OP and best fossil Pokemon :) (all fossil Pokemon are hard to get and evolve but to get carracosta its worth it). just to know you restore tirtouga then level it up to level 37! Enough said. - rexprice4
This thing is OP (over powered) can beat almost EVERY rock/ground Pokemons with his water and can beat dragonite with one hit!
