Best Ground Pokemon


The Top Ten

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

My best Pokemon it has good attacks faster than Salamanca and can outrun Pokemon like gener

Garchomp is my best pokemon

Garchomp is just a monster! Dragon Rush prevents the regretful water type moves! Mega Garchomp is just a monster that most Pokemon players have a hard time defeating Garchomp! Draco Meteor is very hard but fun to use!

Great moves and very strong to have on a team for any region

2 Rhyperior Rhyperior

Is every one here a retard it's the best ground type

Defense and good move set

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

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

He's the best starter


This is the evolved form of a beginner Pokemon.

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

4 Krookodile Krookodile

This is one of the many pokemon I use in gameplay and it is one of the best sweeper ever

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.

Not necessarily OP, if he gets going with moxie and his above average speed, then this guy can sweep a team with crunch STAB and earthquake STAB. Also can be support, bulky set up with intimidate and stealth rock. If Garchomp tops the list, then Krookodile has to be close. This thing is literally Garchomp but a bit weaker.

Krookdile can be a force to be reckoned with it can be pretty powerful with STAB moves such as Earthquake and Knock Off both moves are used a lot in competitive.It Can have Stealth Rocks for a leading role.It is pretty powerful paired with Choice Scarf because it makes it very fast and powerful.

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

Too op

I think Groudon should me first, Flygon second and Garchomp third at least.

Groudon is the best, my favorite pokemon!

Garchomp is pretty good and should be 2nd, but there's NO WAY that it's better than Groudon

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

Amazing Pokemon

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.

7 Flygon Flygon

This guy is underrated. At least put him in 3rd. Dragon Rush, Earthquake, Fire Blast, and Hyper Beam and you get a Garchomp killer. He is a BEAST.

Flap ya wings and make a sand storm please show to geodude what a loza he is

The only thing on this list that is better is tyranitar but he's rock and dark,not ground

I love flygon. If you don't love flygon I don't like you.

8 Mamoswine Mamoswine

Every time I use him he just tanks everyone out.


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...

9 Nidoking Nidoking Nidoking, known in Japan as Nidoking, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Great stats and type combination. Also looks cool.

# give my bro sum love

I think this guy is,kinda weak. I'm just saying I love him. He is one of my favorites,But I think Groudon is way far the best.

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

10 Hippowdon Hippowdon


Hippowdon is a great ground Pokemon

It's a hippo

The Contenders

11 Quagsire Quagsire

Dude why give me that face yo


Great typing, great styling, great movepool, lackluster stats. But so, so much fun.

Quagsire is the best Pokémon EVER it’s cute funny

12 Steelix Steelix

Steelix should be in the top 5! No doubts! He has such great moves like earthquake, rockslide and hyper beam!

What do you want when you are playing,
do you wanna win or lose choose it and win don’t choose it too bad you lost.
Top 1 it deserves.

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

Super man of pokemons

13 Torterra Torterra Torterra, known in Japan as Dodaitose, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Very underrated

Top ten

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.

14 Excadrill Excadrill

Let me tell ya'll something. I own an Excadrill and he is an absolute sweeper! Give him 100 evs in speed, 252 evs in attack, and 158 evs in defense and you got a potential murderer! My Exca single-handedly swept the unova elite four! Like come on! Plus its definitely better than QUAGSIRE! WHO VOTES ON THIS WEBSITE?!? I PERSONALLY THINK YA'LL ARE HIGH OR SOMETHING!

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

15 Dugtrio Dugtrio


I don't know why but I love this thing

Insane speed, destroys with an earthquake, perfection.

Why can it learn scratch?

16 Seismitoad Seismitoad


I agree

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.

17 Camerupt Camerupt

Camerupt and swampert are my favorite ground pokemon, but I like camerupt's mega a bit more, since swamperst's is over designed, putting camerupt a little higher on the list for me

Should be top 10 - legendary

Camerupt used eruption.

The foes Excadrill fainted.

The foes Torterra fainted.

Laugh out loud Camerupt wins.
Camerupt used Earthquake.

The foes Steelix fainted.

The foes Rhyperior fainted.

It's getting a mega-evolution - can't wait!

21 Donphan Donphan

Donphan is tough and awesome

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?!

22 Golem

Golem is number 1

Worst ground pokemon - socoolmudkip

Worst ground pokemon - socoolmudkip

23 Larvitar Larvitar

It's very good when it evolved in to tyranitar,it's health are super strong and the attack and defense too.You should have one

24 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

It's a pangolin. Pangolins are cool. 'enough Said.

He is the best with his attack stats

First ever Ground Type in the World.

25 Golurk Golurk


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

Amazing type combo and is VERY powerful.

26 Primal Groudon Primal Groudon

1. Why is he lower than normal groudon? lmao
2.He should be at least close to mega garchomp

Why is he not here - Doggus

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

Not even a ground type

Best pokemon ever though it has many weaknesses, it has wide move pool and can counter all its weaknesses

Best Ground type without a doubt

Honestly op.

28 Graveler Graveler
29 Palossand Palossand

Palossand is a living sand castel whats not to love?

Come on pallosand is amazing sumo pallosand

30 Rhyhorn
31 Gastrodon Gastrodon

So underrated! With Storm Drain this guy has an additional immunity on top of Electric, which further adds on to its defensive capabilities. Plus recover and amnesia/acid armor, you can toxic stall/scald-burn your enemies to oblivion

I managed to take on every sinnoh gym starting from the second one, with only gastrodon

32 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.


33 Sandile Sandile
34 Zygarde Zygarde Zygarde, known in Japan as the same name, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

In complete form:
1. He looks so awesome like a transformer.
2. He can surpass BOTH Xerneas and Yveltal (Both pokemon has 600 stats)
3. His base stats must be so high due to surpassing Xerneas and Yveltal that his stats are undertermined. It can be a higher total than Arceus' base stats?
4. He also has a signature move (Lands Wrath) with a cool name and 90 damage but weaker than earthquake and precipice blades :(.
5. The guardian of Kalos.
6. If the guardian of Alola destroys 75% of the pokemon's remaining HP, I wonder what Zygarde can do?
Zygarde Complete Form is the best!

35 Arceus Arceus Arceus is a legendary Pokémon from the Pókemon series. He first appeared in the 18th Pokémon movie alongside other Legendary Pokémon.

Arceus is the best ground type when it has plate

36 Diglett Diglett

Hello, Where Was This Guy? He's Dopy, Funny, Cute But Also Learns Rock Type Moves So Charizard Is Dead With 1 Rock Slide. He's Also Good I defense As It's Near Blastoise's. He Could Kill Zekrom Even If He Is level 100 He Can Still Beat Zekrom As He Learns Magnitude.

-Still Haven't Changed Your Mind Re-Read It!


37 Nidoqueen Nidoqueen

This is bull she is one of the best ground types in gen one and all of the other gens

Just look at it just look

She’s got a nice bra

38 Diglet

He is the best speed stat

Can anyone answer this question. Who is Diglet?

39 Rhydon
