0 votes

And I mean a Pokemon that is Rock AND Ground type.
My current team is:
Greninja (Special)
Infernape (Physical)
Noivern (Special [Life Orb Modest no Draco Meteor])
Aegislash (Physical)
Blastoise (Special)

What's a reliable Ground and Rock type to use?
Mainly to counter Klefki and Talonflame.
This is for singles by the way.

Golem and Rhyperior are the best Rock/Ground users.
If you want a Wall that Talonflame and Klefki won't do anything, Stone Edge and Earthquake combo is the solution.


Golem has better Special Defense, Rhyperior has higher Attack and both have the same Defense.
Both can learn Stone Edge and Earthquake.

Rhyperior (M) @ Expert Belt/Life Orb
Ability: Solid Rock
EVs: 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Def
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)
Stone Edge/Rock Slide
Earthquake

Golem (M) @ Expert Belt/Life Orb
Ability: Sturdy
EVs: 128 HP / 128 Atk / 252 SDef
Careful Nature (+SDef, -SAtk)
Stone Edge/Rock Slide
Earthquake

Both share a great defense, Earthquake for Klefki and Rock Slide / Stone Edge for Talonflame.
Flare Blitz and Brave Bird against those 2 guys will make nothing. Klefki can be a problem because Reflect but Thunder Wave won't affect ground-types.
Some other moves can be the elemental punches.
Stealth Rocks against Talonflame is great to. 50% HP taken off.


Rhyperior

252+ Atk Rhyperior Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 252 Def Talonflame: 744-876 (206.6 - 243.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO.

252+ Atk Expert Belt Rhyperior Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Klefki: 348-413 (109.4 - 129.8%) -- guaranteed OHKO.

Golem

252+ Atk Expert Belt Golem Earthquake vs. 252 HP / 252+ Def Klefki: 312-370 (98.1 - 116.3%) -- 87.5% chance to OHKO.

252+ Atk Expert Belt Golem Stone Edge vs. 252 HP / 252 Def Talonflame: 797-941 (221.3 - 261.3%) -- guaranteed OHKO.


Hope this helps.

You may want to try a golem or golurk knowing rock slide, smack down, belly drum and earthquake. They have both have a high defensive stat and that allows belly drum to be used with no real disadvantage. You could even get power up punch on it instead of rockslide and have a nice high attack then wipe them out with earthqauke
Hope I helped
