Best Ground Pokemon


The Top Ten

1 Garchomp Garchomp

Dragon is offensive to most types and ground is a pretty defensive type, so dragon and ground is pretty much an unbeatable combination. Favorite Pokemon ever

You're saying that this thing can beat groudon?

I am pretty sure that dragon is only super effective to dragon, right?

O yeah garchomp is my favorite pokemon he has a cool mega he looks like a cool shark

2 Rhyperior Rhyperior

Just so good and if it got a mega evolution I honestly believe it would surpass garchomp in every way just because it has such a good move set and other than spec definitely some amazing stats

I won the pokemon league with a level 93 Hyperion he is so good

Very good steel/ground type Pokemon.

OP add to yo team if u need a ground type

3 Swampert Swampert

Swam pert is a tank and deals good damage to other Pokemon using his physical strength. His only problem is his weakness to grass type otherwise he is a well rounded Pokemon

I have it in pokemon brick bronze and it sweeps everything

Great Pokemon Swampert has only 1 weakness that is grass but he can learn ice punch

4 Gliscor Gliscor

Highly underrated pokemon. Amazing attack, amazing defense, and decent speed, he can tank or sweep depending on your requirement. Slap on acrobatics (STAB), EQ (STAB), Stone Edge (goes well) and thunder fang (covers all weaknesses) and you've got a beast of a pokemon

Cool design, Cool shiny, Cool competitively. This Pokemon has cool written all over it

This Pokemon is my favorite ground type second flying type before acrobat.

He is da best

5 Krookodile

Very UNDERRATED Pokemon. Ground is a good defensive type, combined with Intimidate, and with Krookodile having relatively good defenses, can take a few hits. Along with that, If you don't like playing defensive, then get Moxie as his ability which increases your attack every time he knocks out a Pokemon which can be certain since Krookodile already has a HIGH attack stat and good speed. To increase the chances of fainting a Pokemon, give Krookodile STAB Earthquake which does a lot of damage with his attack stat and STAB Crunch. He can also learn Iron Tail which shreds Fairies and Ice types, Thunder Fang to destroy Flying and Water types, Stone Edge if that wasn't enough, and can learn a few other moves of the Dragon and Fighting type. Krookodile even thrashed Dragonite in the anime! Although not a pseudo legendary or legendary, one of the best Pokemon in my opinion.

Krookodile has great speed and attack and can even learn dragon type moves on its own!

He beat dragonite as is first win.

Very super pokemon

6 Groudon Groudon

Groudon is number 1 he's the 13 strongest pokemon ever he can create land and he's number 7 really he has a primal form and has a signature move precibades blades which is stronger than earthquake true garchomp has a mega but regular garchomp is stronger mega garchomp is good too but anyway groudon should be first

He's a legendary! Besides that, he knows some of the best moves such as eruption and fissure. Should be #1

Groudon should number one seriously - LUGIALOVER2004

I think this should of been first of ground type pokemon its like the most heavy pokemon and its very rare well I think it's the most heavy pokemon and its well giant so ya it should be first defintly.

7 Mamoswine Mamoswine

Mamoswine is an ice type, which is super effective to ground moves.

Just looks awesome, and ice is a good type to get them nasty dragons...

It is the best

It spawns in the ice biome even though it's a ice ground Pokemon but vs groundon just becase groundon is a legendery groundon w

8 Flygon Flygon

Flygon just seems to me as the coolest, or at least one of them. He looks awesome and is able of learning several types of moves!

Flygon is an incredible pokemon and everyone loves garchomp and its typing well flygon has the very same typing.

My only question is, why isn't it higher

9 Quagsire Quagsire

He's dopey and cute, but also quite good in battle!

Ground and water good HP only not in the top ten

He has grate hp

10 Steelix Steelix

Wow what a Pokemon because it is evolution of mighty onix.

Super man of pokemons

AY boi I'll make your onix evolve into a steelix ūü§£

The Contenders

11 Hippowdon Hippowdon

Hippowdon is a great ground Pokemon

It's a hippo

12 Torterra Torterra

Torterra is a continent, he can take a hit and dish it right back, earthquake for the fire types, stone edge for ice, flying, and bug types, and synthesis to heal. You can't touch Torterra.

Best grass type starter hands down, it's ground typing kills fire types.

One of the best starter Pokemon to many people

My favorite pokemon. A true beast with assult vest or a light screen set up bye bye. Also best looking grass starter one of the best looking starters period. Team Terra

13 Nidoking Nidoking

This is only #20? Nidoking is by far the best gen 1 ground type both power and design-wise! Even if that's his shiny form depicted in the picture :P - Epicsauce45

Wide movepool and earthquake. Can be an HM slave. Wow.

How is Nidoking so low? He's not the best competitively, but he's pretty good. He's so versatile he pretty much has the monopoly of a normal type. He can't run Sludge Wave and Bolt Beam with a sheer power boost! On top of all that he can evolve early and he just looks so damn cool! Nidoking deserves to be top 5 at least top 10.

This mon is my favourite out of all ground types. Your tired of fairy type nidoking has got your back! Well now for the battle strategy for nidoking: item: life orb, move-set (I mostly go for coverage) : ice beam, earthquake/earthpower,venoshock/ slugwave/ slugbomb, thunderbolt/thunder/shockwave.

14 Seismitoad Seismitoad

Great type combo and generally a tank

Zomg I agree best Pokemon is seismitoad because move set for fighting ghetsis: drain punch, earthquake, surf and rock slide. Fight him at like level 50.

15 Dugtrio Dugtrio

Insane speed, destroys with an earthquake, perfection.

16 Donphan Donphan

One roll out of Donphan has the power to knock down a house.. You call this power.. Donphans move set like poison jab and thunder fang can make up for its weaknesses.. This Pokemon is under estimated.. Actually this Pokemon just rocks.. It's a damn strong ground Pokemon plus its kinda cute too.. Proves to be good in finding certain kinds of rare stones.. It is just amazing!

My favorite pokémon is DONPHAN.

Dohnphan is one of the Pokemon most deserving of a mega. dohnphan is a great sweeper and has a high offense and defense. Also, is Phanphy not the cutest thing?!

17 Marowak Marowak

My favorite Pokemon

Decent stats, great moveset, great in Pokemon Origin, and it's just an all around good pokemon

love it

Woohoo! Go Marowak! So, I love Cubone. And you can guess since I love Cubone, I would also like Marowak. If so, then you are correct. I've been a fan of Marowak ever since I played a game on RŇĆBLOX called Project: Pokemon. I traded a guy my Machoke for a level 100 Marowak with the attacks Focus Slam, Bonemerang, Bone Rush, and Rock Tomb. I thought, "He's just a Marowak, I mean, he can't be THAT good. But, I was dead wrong when I used him to defeat Blaine, and he killed EVERY SINGLE ONE OF HIS POKEMON. So, I highly suggest, after this experience, that you put a Marowak on your team. He is good designed and is an all around great ground type Pokemon. - SquirtleFan3

18 Golem

Laugh out loud Camerupt wins.

20 Sandslash Sandslash

If you actually use this Pokemon properly, It can kill anything, swords dance, sand rush sandstorm, boom, faster than arcanine, and stronger than most dragon pokemon

He is the best with his attack stats

First ever Ground Type in the World.

By far my favorite ground type

21 Golurk Golurk

He is mighty because he is ghost type also and very cool

Amazing type combo and is VERY powerful.

22 Excadrill Excadrill

Just use sand rush to out speed then swords dance and then sweep.

Good Type Combination and looks AMAZING

It jas multiple 1 hit ko moves

Hone claws x 6 + Horn Drill/Fissure:
Still pitiful accuracy but a lot better chance to hit the opponent.

23 Claydol Claydol

Claydol gets both stab earthquake and stab psychic and is a very versatile pokemon that can sweep, stall dual screens and can be an explosive lead.

Great defenses and good moveset. Great Pokemon.


24 Mudsdale Mudsdale

If you were playing pokemon moon or sun this is your ground pokemon its cute cool and powerful and its easy to get

25 Zygarde Zygarde

I was the one who said about Zygarde being the Guardian of Kalos and him being cool like a transformer. I meant to say that Xerneas and Yveltal have 680 stats, not 600
