Ground Type Pokemon Strength and Weakness Chart

Ground Type Pokemon

Ground-type Pokémon have powers and abilities related to soil and land control. Earth-type Pokémon are afraid of water, such as Rock-type Pokémon, unless they are Water. Many Pokémon on Earth are also partially Rock.

These Pokémon are usually found in caves or rocky terrain, except for some dual-type Pokémon. One of the bad things about them is that they normally can't take off, like Diglett and Dugtrio, even if they are great fighters when they are under the earth's surface. They have powerful movements like Earthquake and Crack.

Among the famous land-based Pokémon coaches are John, the last head of gymnastics in the Kanto region (also head of Team Rocket); Bertha, member of Sinnoh Elite Four; Clay, the fifth animator of Unova; and Hapu, an island of Kahuna in Alola.
