Best Ground Pokemon

The Top Ten

1 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 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!

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

Garchomp is speedy and attack is sharp. Its Mega Evolution, though it gets a loss in speed, has a great boost in attack. - Decidueye2314

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

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

This is the evolved form of a beginner 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

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

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

Groupons ability makes water moves do nothing, it’s fire type protects ground from grass, and it has one weakness(flying, water does nothing) and is powerful against a lot of types. Grass, bug, rock, electric, etc

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

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

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

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

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

Defense and good move set

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

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

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.

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

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.

Great stats and amazing design. Shiny isn't to shabby either

7 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.

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

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.

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

8 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...

It is the best

9 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.

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

# give my bro sum love

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

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

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

I love this earth turtle

The Contenders

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

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

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

Super man of pokemons

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.

12 Marowak

Marowak is more powerful its amazing

My favorite Pokemon

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

love it

13 Hippowdon

Hippowdon is a great ground Pokemon

It's a hippo


14 Quagsire

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

Dude why give me that face yo

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

Ground and water good HP only not in the top ten

15 Excadrill

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

Good Type Combination and looks AMAZING

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!

It jas multiple 1 hit ko moves

16 Golem

Golem is number 1

Worst ground pokemon - socoolmudkip

Worst ground pokemon - socoolmudkip

17 Dugtrio

Insane speed, destroys with an earthquake, perfection.

I don't know why but I love this thing

Why can it learn scratch?

So fast!

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

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

Not even a ground type

Best Ground type without a doubt

Honestly op.

19 Seismitoad

Great type combo and generally a tank

Really good 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.

I agree

20 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 Phanpy Phanpy, known in Japan as Gomazou, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Uhh I mean its cute but um that's it - michthepenguin

22 Mudsdale

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

23 Donphan Donphan, known in Japan as Donfan, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

Donphan is tough and awesome

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?!

24 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

25 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.

26 Rhydon


27 Golurk

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

Amazing type combo and is VERY powerful.


28 Primal Groudon

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

Favorite of all time! And #1 Best ground type!
(Put a 🤯 emoji in your comment if you agree with me)

Why is he not here - Doggus

29 Graveler Graveler, known in Japan as Golone, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Am I the only one showing any love to gravelar? sure he's not the best( I'm looking at onix and mamoswine) but he still is an amazing power pokemon.

30 Palossand

Palossand is a living sand castel whats not to love?

Come on pallosand is amazing sumo pallosand

31 Rhyhorn
32 Gastrodon Typhlosion, known in Japan as Tritodon, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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

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

It is a legendary it should be in the top 10

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!

34 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.


35 Sandile
36 Landorus Landorus, known in Japan as Landlos, is a Legendary Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

Guys never get info from top tens they are so BAAD!

37 Diglett Diglett, known in Japan as Digda, is a Pokémon species in Nintendo and Game Freak's Pokémon franchise.

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!

So cute, alolan diglett is so good


38 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

39 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

40 Diglet

Can anyone answer this question. Who is Diglet?
