Dude you're mistaken, I'm Sandshrew's number one fan D;

Partner Pokemon (only one)- My favourite Pokémon of all time is Sandshrew and always has been, but as that's already taken I guess I'll go with Sandslash... *cries*
Why do you want to join?- SANDSHREWWW <3 I absolutely adore Ground types, namely all the cute ones rivalling all the big toughies like Excadrill! My favourite Pokémon has always been Sandshrew ever since I first saw it so that somewhat send the trend for me on liking Ground types - there's always been at least one from each generation that I've absolutely fell in love with. They're such a diverse range of Pokémon with hundreds of individual quirks and unique features, it makes for some very fun Pokémon to use in battle.

What is your favourite ground type Pokémon and why?
Without a shadow of a doubt, it's Sandshrew. It's such an amazingly designed Pokémon with so many interesting features and unique concepts, plus it was the first Pokémon I ever caught in Yellow (bar Pikachu) and it's the first one I trained to level 100. Its design is amazing with the intricate brickwork pattern of its scales, the adorable stubby arms and those beautiful eyes. It has countless interesting moves and stats to try out like attempting to bulk it up with Swords Dance and smash the enemy down with Poison Jab or Earthquake, and all the while it remains cute as a button! Also in the anime with AJ's Sandshrew, that was just 100% badass. His Sandshrew really proved that it's a Pokémon with huge potential and should never be underestimated for a second! It's evolution is also wonderful as Sandslash is a beast in the battlefield and looks insanely cool - the only thing I don't like about Sandshrew is it's shiny colour. The green really isn't as nice as the original colour :( Sandslash's awesome shiny palette makes up for it though!

You're in! Thank you for joining!
To answer the topic question,
What is your favorite ground type pokemon and why?-
Well its Sandshrew of course! As for why, there are three reasons. First- One day I was bored to death so I took my sisters pokemon handbook and decided to figure out my absolute favorite pokemon. How whould I do this? Just sit there and stare at them. Im not even joking. For about an hour I would stare at a pokemon, then turn the page. And thus, Sandhrew became my favorite pokemon. Second reason- When I was getting far in my heartgold, and I wasnt completley obsessed with Sandshrew, I had a sandshrew in my game. So I battled with it and it was evolving. I dont know why I didnt want it to evolve but i didnt. So I pressed B, gave it an everstone, and its at like level 70 now. Third reason- Look at it! Its so cute, cool, tough, awesome, everything! It can learn some pretty good moves too! So that is why I like sandshrew!!

Partner Pokemon (only one)- Drilburr. I love them
Why do you want to join?- I like ground pokemons a bit and Exadrill a lot. It helped me so many times during battles. It is amazing. Ground types are also very cool and can learn moves like Earthquake and Magnitude, which are amazing. I am not a super fan of Ground pokemon but I like Exadrill(which i am a fan of).

Answering the topic:

As stated before, I like Exadrill a lot. I like it because of its design and power. I once used it in the Ground type monotype challenge in Black and it was a Beast. I almost soloed the whole game with it and it ended up becoming LVL 99. It had the Adamant nature too. Drilburr family can learn a lot of good moves like Sword Dance, Earthquake, X-Scissor and Rock Slide. Although it can only learn one weak steel type stab move, it doesn't require any Steel type move in his set.

Why you joined:There are so many reasons n_n! They're powerful,cool-looking some are adorable and deadly,while being diverse.Even though they might not be the speediest around,they have always been a type to admire for me :3.There isn't one generation I've survived without a decent ground type.

What's your favourite Ground-type and why?
This is a hard decision D:.But I'm choosing little Phanpy,the cute but powerful elephant.After seeing its adorable design all those years ago and how friendly it was in the anime,I fell in love with it.Donphan was also cool-looking and appealing to me.Their stats and moves overall were great as well :D.

Why do you want to join?- I want to join because a few of my favorite pokemon are ground types. I also like the type itself due to the either powerful strength or bulk behind ground types. Not to mention the designs are really cool.


What's your favourite Ground-type and why? This....is a hard one. My two favorite ground types are Gliscor and Mamoswine. Firstly because of their awesome designs but also because of their anime apperances that captured my eye. So i'm just gunna go with mommoswine. Hes a huge and powerful Pig-mammoth and thats a giant plus. Also, HE'S SO FLUFFY!! :D

Partner Pokemon (only one)- Stunfisk
Why do you want to join?- I love the way that ground type Pokemon (typically) work: High HP and physical stats, at the cost of special stats and speed. I've never really prized speed, as I find it much more important to be able to take hits when it's needed than to be able to strike first. Plus, their designs are often pretty nice, and have a fair amount of variety.

What's your favourite ground-type and why?
I always love it when they try something slightly different with a Pokemon's stats. It's especially great when it's a success (such as Toxicroak, an offensive poison-type, and Empoleon, a specially defensive steel-type), but I still enjoy those that aren't so good. That's why I like Stunfisk - a ground-type which concentrates more on special stats than physical, and also the slowest electric-type ever. It's design is pretty unique among ground-types, too, although it is fairly reminiscent of Dunsparce.

Cool. To answer that-
I would take Sandshrew to the beach. Far away from the water of course :D We would build sandcastles and stuff like that. That would be awesome.

I'd probably take him to the river. It's pretty peaceful, and there's plenty of mud and stuff for him to enjoy.

Actually thinking back to my response on the topic, i cant decide over a nice trip camping or to take Mamoswine to a gigantic buffet. I'm sure a giant mammoth would enjoy that :D. But still...cant decide

What is your favorite ground type move and why?
Mine would be Mud Shot from R/S/E. I had good memories of that game and that move. I had picked Mudkip so I used that move a lot. It beat Flannery for me.

Replying to the topic, my favorite ground type move would have to be eaither earthquake for its sheer powah, or bone rush due to how epic it looked when lucario used it in the anime. I'd say the only ground type move I dont like is mud sport cuz....its pretty much useless...Meh, wat do you guys think?

A cool thing we could do is a random ground type of the week. We'll have like a "whos that pokemon" thing at the beggening of the week about that pokemon. Whoever cracks the code first gets points, and after the pokemon is revealed we can have further side-discussion on that pokemon. We could also have everyone search the friend list up and down for people who might want to join and have the joiner reference the person who invited them for points. I was also thinking that we could have some cool uses for the points like; 200 points you get another partner. Oh and lastly I was thinking we could have events like, we could submit a short story on a ground pokemon, or are partner pokemon or whatever. Like the theme would be "How you met your partner ground type". That would be cool.

It's a reference from Naruto The Abridged Comedy Fandub Spoof Series Show (episode 4).

Why do you want to join - Ground is one of my ever-lasting allies. It helped me a lot in Pokemon Fire Red and some of my favourite Pokemon are Ground-Type! Need I say more?

What is your favorite ground type move and why?

Well, I have two. They are both very strong moves, and they are both used for strategy. Well, sometimes, obviously not always, I wouldn't know who uses Tactics/Strategies or who would use all-out power.

Earthquake because it's such a strong move! It is also very useful for many people, and power goes from 100 to 150 if the Pokemon using it is Ground-Type! Also, it is very effective against five Types, which really packs a punch to many Pokemon (But not Flying-Types, they're just boasting about the fact that they are immune to Ground-Types HOWEVER there are obvious exceptions). Also, almost all Ground-Type Pokemon have very high Attack which ups Earthquake's power even more! Plus there is a TM for it, which really can make a person happy knowing there are more ways than one just to get a Pokemon with Earthquake... Earthquake can really make a Pokemon formidable, and they can trip up Pokemon that are sweepers themselves quite easily. It's the best offensive Ground-Type move for Pokemon without the ability to learn Fissure, the ultimate Ground-Type move.

Fissure because it is an all-out, 1-hit K-O move. It may have low Accuracy (30% to be exact) but still, it is quite a good move for it's amount of PP (Keeping in mind that you won't have SEVEN FISSURES missing the opponent, but 2-5 instead). Back in Generation I, this was a big rocker. It had it's own TM, surprisingly, and FOURTEEN Pokemon can learn it by level up as of Generation V. Nine Pokemon can learn it via breeding, and just about 30 Pokemon can learn it through TM. That is just over a fifth of the Pokemon of Generation I that can learn it. So actually, it was quite a common move itself, until the later Generations, where the quantity was reduced to only 23 (Except in Generation II, if you use Transfer to transfer the Fissure Pokemon to Generation II). It is risky, but that's the fun of the battle, isn't it? Taking risks to make things like battles more fun?



It's quite a good thing that all of the Pokemon Types weak to Ground are all quite common! But they still can be quite rare, but you can get information on where to find them by battling a Trainer's Ground-Type to gain information about it!

Ok, so we now have a "who's that pokemon" contest. You get +2 points if you are the first to guess it right and +0 points if you get it wrong. Anyone can post a "who's that pokemon" contest but only one at a time. Also the person who submits the contest cannot answer (obviously). So here is the first one-
It lives in cold water, half burying itself in mud at the bottom to sleep.
You also only get one try.

Haha, this is going to be fun. But also you should edit a pic of the pokemon on the first page once someone gets it so people coming in know whos the current pokemon. Well, lets see if i can guess who it is ....later

Is it okay if I PM you my answer just so the others can get a shot at the contest?

I'm not going to answer this one, but may I give a little advice? Be careful not to write a Pokedex Entry, because somebody could easily look it up; You might need to write it in a way that is not a real Pokedex Entry and would therefore be harder. I'm not saying you have written a Pokedex Entry, but please take this note in consideration.


I must catch up with the topics!


What is your favorite Ground-Type Pokemon and why?

That would be Garchomp because it is awesome. But I know I use it too much when I shouldn't, so I tend to have Pokemon such as Rhyperior or Groudon. None the less, Garchomp is a great Pseudo-Legendary, with great speed. Garchomp has a great Move-Set and can learn the ever-powerful move Draco Meteor (Although it is not very good with it, as it is much better at balanced statistics). It can also prove to be a wall at times due to it's decent Defense and Special Defense, making it quite a good wall for it's Speed. It is also a great Physical Attacker (Typically, as it's a Dragon-Type) which makes it very formidable in many ways; But when it comes to need for Special Moves, forget about it, as it is Garchomp's worst Statistic. Also remember that Garchomp's Defenses can still be dramatically lowered, which is when its greatness goes from 100% to about 40%.

But, I also like Rhyperior for many reasons. It's a very superior Pokemon who's Tank has been took up to the next level (Literally) and it becomes almost UNBEATABLE if you don't have any Special Attacks with you. It's what they say - "Never use a Physical Attack on Rhyperior". If you don't defeat IT, it will demolish you. There isn't many Pokemon that can survive Rhyperior's Rock Wrecker easily. The Pokemon that DO survive it are either bad at attacking, or just have high Physical Attack and not Special Attack. Also, due to Rhyperior's high HP, you can't just rely on all Special Moves, you got to rely on the strong ones (Which aren't Electric of course) to faint it. Most tactical Rhyperiors have Focus Sashes so they still have a chance for demolishing your Pokemon. But I have to say, it's Pokedex Entry about shooting out Geodudes is just ridiculous in my opinion. I mean, come on, that's just totally weird. But still, Rhyperior is a good Pokemon for many sorts of occasions, even if you are troubled somewhat by using it. Just don't use it against Pokemon with high Special Attack...

I like Groudon too, but not as much as the others. I don't really think it is the best at... You know, it's Type getting recognized. Many people mistake Groudon for a Fire-Type rather than a Ground-Type. Also, poor Groudon always has it's name spelled wrong! But, hey, don't treat it like a child, IT'S A LEGENDARY FOR GOD'S SAKE. It can learn Fissure... Which makes it very good. It can also be a great offensive Ground-Type, as it learns many elemental moves... Also, it's Drought Ability makes it a very good Tactical Pokemon, has Groudon learns a lot of Fire-Type moves too. Just don't mess with Groudon. It's the strongest Ground-Type (Excluding Ground Arceus), which means it can PWN many other Pokemon which aren't otherwise weak to Ground already. Groudon has an immunity to Electric, what perhaps could be one of the greatest sweepers around, which makes it extra useful. But please don't mention the design... Please...


Ground-Types always live up to my expectations... Always. They made a Ground-Type that dueled with it's duo peer, shaping the land... I wonder what the next Generation (If there will be) has to offer... But for now, only time will tell.
