Hi everyone. Welcome to another Pokémon of the Week. Today we’re
reviewing Groudon, the continent high Pokémon.
As the other legends we’ve been reviewing, Groudon is one
Pokémon to fear. All of its stats are pretty good, but we will
focus on its gargantuan attack. I don’t think it is as good as
Kyogre but still pretty decent. Being speed its poorest stat, we
will have to take care of that with the move combinations, but
it’s easier now with some of the new generation moves.
Drought is pretty cool for team strategies. It will also benefit
Groudon against water attacks.
Let’s move on to the move combinations, let’s see what’s up with
I’d go for dragon pulse over thunderbolt, but it’s your call.
The special sweeper is a little bit weaker but still very
Nature: Timid (+ Speed, - Attack).
Equip: Chesto berry.
EV´s: 252 Special attack, 252 Speed, 6 HP.
- Rock polish
- Solar beam
Use rock polish as long as you need it, then use rest, wake up
with Chesto berry and sweep. You have to be careful with this
one; do not overuse rock polish as you might faint.
Nature: Careful (+ Special defense, - Special attack).
EV´s: 252 Special defense, 252 HP, 6 Defense.
- Stealth rock
- Earthquake / Rest
Annoyer Groudon is something no one is going to expect. Use
stealth rock, then toxic and roar. Earthquake is there for
finishing blows or rest to earn some more time or recovering
from status issues.
When should I use this Pokémon?
Almost every sunny day team requires one of these, but you now
have 5 options. With this your Groudon won’t be as predictable
as your opponents might think. Just remember to switch when
What should I use against this Pokémon?
You should use something really fast, and preferably lethal for
Groudon. You can always take advantage of Drought and baton pass
some speed to a solar beamer. It works great. Stopping the
drought works pretty cool to, that way you can always use your
fast water types.
I’ll tell you the truth, it is a pretty good Pokémon, but I
haven’t seen him on competitive battles lately. Maybe it will
become not as used because of Dialga and Palkia, but overall, it
is as strong as those Pokémon.
Hope you enjoyed.
Ooh, something that looks like
a big dino? =D
I LOOOOVE DINOS!!!!!!
Drought automatictly starts Sunny Day which lets us use fire
much. Still think he should be fire just because of that.
Nature for more speed.
Leftovers is to make sure it has life for Eruption.
EV's for power.
Weak against water, grass and ice. Lets see.
Earthquake and Dragon Claw to take care of the big stuff.
Because Groudon have more Atk then S.Atk then they are better.
Solarbeam is against water pokemons and you dont have to wait
that turn for
it to load.
Eruption is against grass and ice pokemons and it will be
stronger thanks to
He is strong and good, I like him the most.
If anyone has any Event Legendary that I can get data on, just
Over and Out
