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

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

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

Ehm Garchomp is ground dragon swampert can wreck it it is water ground sorry garchomp swampert andf you should swap and rhyperior and you swap HEHEHEHEHEH

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

Defense and good move set

Got one in Pokémon x randomized lv 2and I had it on my team until the end of the game. Onestly carried my team through the elite 4 and has amazing stats should be number 1

3 Swampert 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

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

This is the evolved form of a beginner Pokemon.

4 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.

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!

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 Gliscor 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.

Amazing Pokemon

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

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

How could Garchomp beat groudon

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

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

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

9 Quagsire Quagsire

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

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

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

The Newcomers

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

Top ten

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

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.

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.

14 Dugtrio Dugtrio

Insane speed, destroys with an earthquake, perfection.

I don't know why but I love this thing

Why can it learn scratch?


15 Seismitoad Seismitoad

Great type combo and generally a tank

17 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!

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?!

18 Camerupt Camerupt

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

Should be top 10 - legendary

Camerupt can mega evolve now

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.

19 Golem

Worst ground pokemon - socoolmudkip

Worst ground pokemon - socoolmudkip

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

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

He is the best with his attack stats

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 Tyranitar Tyranitar

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

Not even a ground type

Honestly op.

24 Primal Groudon Primal Groudon

Why is he not here - Doggus

25 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

26 Palossand Palossand

Come on pallosand is amazing sumo pallosand

27 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!

28 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

29 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.


30 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

31 Phanpy Phanpy
32 Diglet

Can anyone answer this question. Who is Diglet?

He is the best speed stat

33 Nidoqueen Nidoqueen

Just look at it just look

She’s got a nice bra

34 Rhydon


35 Geodude Geodude
36 Marshtomp Marshtomp

Great Pokemon.
Cute AND strong!
Evolves from cute, playful Mudkip.

37 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!

38 Stunfisk Stunfisk

Come on! Stunfisks name wasn't even on here! It has total advantage over grounds weak points as it is a electric/ground type eg. Super effective against water and flying types!

39 Whiscash Whiscash

Just a beast

40 Rhyhorn
41 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
