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.

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

YEAH! He is my juggernaut! I give him rocky helmet and ability rough skin to make those who hit him suffer, and good speed, hp and attack stats, and his mega evo's stats is very AWESOME!

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

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

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

Come on it should be first. now garchomp has a good typing but one ice punch and garchomp is down. then rhyperior a surf or earthquake will finish him that is why it should be first. although is has a huge weakness to grass ice type moves and defense should make up for it

This Pokemon did not appeal to me but in the anime this was overused

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

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

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.

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

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

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

It is pretty good I guess. It had it's up and downs but it is good. It looked nothing like it's evolution before it Rhydon though. and it is good.

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

Very good steel/ground type Pokemon.

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.

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.

Better than Garchomp. Thanks to gen 5 it now has dragon dance, it gets u-turn, and had a better design in my opinion.

6 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.

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.

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

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

I agree that Gliscor has cool written all over it! I mean LOOK AT DAT DESIGN! if u say the design or the shiny doesn't look cool then... wut? and it's SO good competitivly! one gliscor SWEPT MY ENTIRE TEAM

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.

8 Mamoswine

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

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

Every time I use him he just tanks everyone out.

It is the best

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

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.

He is my most favourite pokemon ever. Nidoking is the best pokemon if talking about wide movepool if you are thinking to use it in D/P/Pl and u choosed piplup as there starter that is very great because Nidoking covers up empoleons electric and grass type weakness easily and if you like garchomp and nidoking they both are great if you need speed garchomp has it. If you need wide move pool nidoking has it.

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

Great stats and type combination. Also looks cool.

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.

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

TORTERRA for the win!
Stone Edge kills your charizard.
Badass, super easy to get, earthquake, stone edge, synthesis, wood hammer.

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

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.

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.

Super man of pokemons

12 Hippowdon

Hippowdon is a great ground Pokemon


13 Quagsire

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

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

Ground and water good HP only not in the top ten

Dude why give me that face yo

14 Marowak

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 RŌBLOX 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.

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

Marowak is more powerful its amazing

My favorite Pokemon

15 Excadrill

THIS! THIS IS **THE** BEST GROUND TYPE BECAUSE IT ALSO HAS A GOOD SECONDARY TYPE Has some good moves and two One-Hit-KO-moves Like Fissure and Horn drill. HOW COULD U NOT LOVE THIS Pokemon!

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

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

It jas multiple 1 hit ko moves

16 Golem

Golem is number 1

17 Dugtrio

Insane speed, destroys with an earthquake, perfection.

I don't know why but I love this thing

Why can it learn scratch?


18 Seismitoad

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.

Great type combo and generally a tank

Really good tank.

19 Camerupt

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!

Camerupt can mega evolve now

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

20 Mudsdale

Mudsale should be in the top 10! It's so cute and strong!

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

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

22 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!

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?!

Donphan is tough and awesome

My favorite pokémon is DONPHAN.

23 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

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

He is the best with his attack stats

First ever Ground Type in the World.

Both offensive and defensive

25 Golurk

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

Amazing type combo and is VERY powerful.
