Best Rock Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Tyranitar Tyranitar Tyranitar, known in Japan as Bangiras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Choose this pokemon it will crush the others and is op

Yes people understand

It's ok but... Why though only 19%? I LOVE this Pokemon!

It can't do anyth4ing against regirock and rhyperior's hammer arm really this pokemon is the...
And sucks

2 Rhyperior Rhyperior

OP rock and ground type

It can withstand volcanic eruptions!

Mighty evolution of the original Pokemon and if it got a decent mega evolution could cream mega tryranitar in a fight because its just much more tanky in physical combat its only let down is its poor spec defense which with just a portion of the 100 point bonus would be solved pretty much so it was at least a okay spec definitely

Super cool he can shoot geodudes out of his hands

3 Aggron Aggron Aggron, known in Japan as Bossgodora, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

It's the best before it's mega evolution it was stronger than many type but mega evolution made him a pure steel type Pokémon that was worse. It's a beast from hoenn.

How ever, 4x weak to fighting and ground. Should really get different typing.

I love this guy so much. My favorite rock/steel Pokemon

Super cool, especially with the new mega evolution

4 Aerodactyl Aerodactyl Aerodactyl, known in Japan as Ptera, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I have an aerodactyl with
Fire blast
Stone edge
Earthquake/steel wing/dragon claw
Giga impact

I would welcome ice, steel, electric types with open arms my moves can take care of anything

Ram pardons is in it now. Hey didn't you add it in

I wanted to vote for rampardos but his not in the ten so I decided on aerodactly cause he can fly as well. It is a pretty good advantage seeing that rock are weak to ground

Great tailwind setup, amazing damage as a mega, has amazing coverage and has outstanding defensive stats and typing. perfect for my rock monotype team.
(by the way the team is lycanroc midday, tyrantrum, golem Alola, tyranitar, armaldo and mega aerodactyle.

5 Gigalith Gigalith Gigalith is a rock type Pokémon that was introduced in the games Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version. It can have one of three abilities, sand stream, sturdy, or its hidden ability, sand force. If you trade a Boldore, then it will evolve into a Gigalith. Gigalith has a high attack and more.

Gigalith absolutely obliterates

This guy is dope

Have you SEEN this MONSTER? Gigalith has the power to blow up an ENTIRE MOUNTAIN. See those spikes on Tyranitar? Those are little mountains. Gigalith can blow Tyranitar into SMITHEREENS that are smaller than a QUARK (and if you don't know what a quark is, YOU don't even DESERVE to be in the MERE PRESENCE of my boy Gigalith! ) In comaprison, take a look at the GOD that is Gigalith. See those red crystals covering its body? They're red because they're drenched in the blood of Gigalith's enemies! Even better, if you think a piddly little water-type can take down Gigalith, it can use these crystals to ABSORB THE ENTIRE SUN and FIRE THE BIGGEST SOLARBEAM YOU'VE EVER SEEN IN YOUR PUNY LIFE! Vote Gigalith now, before you regret it.

Its Orange crystals look awesome and it's my favourite rock type pokemon - TENTACRUEL

6 Tyrantrum Tyrantrum Tyrantrum, known in Japan as Gachigoras, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

THEY need a new type for fossil Pokemon

He is the best of all and he has unique

Number 1 just a Beast give t-rex some credit

Man, this guy should be number 1, great moveset like ice fang and horn drill, it is the coolest Pokemon ever!

7 Lycanroc Lycanroc

I love his midnight form

I love midnight form lycanrock

Winner all round with its speed. Dusk form is way powerful!

Gladions midnight form lycanroc is awesome

8 Rampardos Rampardos

Whats not to like? I mean, It can smash through anything with it's skull, skull ain't visible, rock type so skin is made out of rock, which means it's skull is waay stronger!

He can be a good sweep

While he doesn't have good defense and speed, he's good for one shotting those legendaries with head smash

Rampardos can be a offensive or special or mixed sweeper so I vote for him

9 Archeops Archeops

Archeops, aside from Defeatist, is plain amazing. That Attack stat

Great stats, great movepool, fair typing.

Although it's ability lowers it's attack, it's total stats are too great to be ignored

10 Golem

Golem is best rock pokemon and strongest! - David39

Golem Rocks no questions asked

Golem should be definitely among the top 3

Golem design is terrible and its ability sucks


The Newcomers

? Steeling Steeling

Better Pokemon to watch out
But it is bad while water poke fight with it
Blasting pokemon

The Contenders

11 Onix Onix Onix, known in Japan as Iwark, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


Come on... onix represents rock types he is so cool

Onix should be legendary. He has great moves.

Superb pokemon

13 Regirock Regirock

Love it

This golem is a beast and one of my favorite legends and it will always be

Regirock is the coolest rock type Pokemon ever

What regirock in 10 position no

14 Terrakion Terrakion Terrakion, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.


I voted only to say it's the worst from the 3, it has tins of weaknesses, however, it's attack is great.

All the Swords of Justice are awesome


15 Probopass Probopass

The most underrated design ever.

He looks like some dang ugly nose with a beard...

Really underrated design.

He is a strong pokemon! Why is he so far down?

16 Kabutops Kabutops

Kabutops has blades for arms! How is that not cool!

17 Rockruff Rockruff

Rockruff is definitely the cutest rock type ever

18 Armaldo Armaldo

I got a shiny Armaldo so I vote this to be the best



I like how cradily or crustle arnt here

19 Diancie Diancie Diancie, number 719 and the Jewel Pokémon is a mythical Pokémon in the game series Pokémon. It features in its own movie in the Pokémon anime series called "Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction". This Pokémon can also Mega Evolve.

Yes I agree it's not a cool-type like rock types are(more fits in cite and beautiful) but still - SoaPuffball

20 Sudowoodo Sudowoodo

This Pokémon is hilarious and awesome at the same time and it's mimic is very good

21 Primal Groudon Primal Groudon

What world do we live? The one made by Groudon (I think) It is immune to water type attacks, sweeps everything in competitive and yet Primal Groudon is under the likes of aron, beldum, rockruff kill me now

It is the strongest rock pokemon in the entire Pokémon world
It can feint a tyranitar with only one tackle

22 Bastiodon Bastiodon


So cool I LOVE ❤ it!

23 Minior Minior

Shell smash white herb bois

24 Shuckle Shuckle

Shuckle is the best Pokemon to exist! HE CAN DO 481 MILLION DAMAGE

Ultimate troll team right here. Shuckle can take anyone on.

25 Omastar Omastar


Shell smash, ice beam, surf, earth power and a focus sash or white herb = gg

Lord helix

The best

26 Aron Aron Aron, known in Japan as Cokodora, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

I have an aron in Pokemon Go


27 Crustle

Crustle good

28 Nosepass Nosepass

He's cute and funny looking in a nice way

29 Lunatone Lunatone

I had one from. It had Cosmic Power and Rock Polish. With that Baton Pass it can make ANOTHER Pokémon tougher, faster, and with Weakness Policy, stronger as well! It just needs to survive that one initial hit, which it may not.

30 Cradily Cradily

Stuff all the other pokemon this one beats em all

31 Lairon

Evolution between Aron and Aggron. Both decently cool.

Just looks plain cool and has OP attack and defense.

32 Roggenrola Roggenrola

Just the best

33 Carbink Carbink Carbink the Jewel Pokémon, number 703 and known in Japan as Melecie, is a creature in the Japan role playing game Pokémon.

What I said in Diancie, ditto with Carbink. - SoaPuffball

34 Solrock Solrock
35 Archen
36 Barbaracle Barbaracle

He is a non stop blocking monster he evolves from binacle he deserves to be in here...

37 Rhydon

He is the best in my opinion
I'm unpacking

38 Corsola Corsola
39 Boldore
40 Cranidos

His pre-evolution is good but then he evolves into an ugly thing

41 Bonsly Bonsly
