A gravity team is a Pokemon team built around the move Gravity - kind of like a Trick Room team.
Gravity cancels the affect of moves like Bounce, Hi Jump Kick etc. as well as flying type, immunity to spikes, toxic spikes etc. It also has a 2 stage decrease in evasion, so Gravity teams often focus around using high powered, low accuracy attacks like Focus Blast.

A team that makes use of Gravity to patch up the low accuracy of powerful moves such as Blizzard and Thunder, while also letting Ground hit Flying and Levitating Pokemon.
