Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Why does Earthquake still miss a Pokemon with levitate/flying type when it digs?

why don't they loose their immunity like when using roost, gravity, etc. (after all, they are IN the ground)? Just wondering if there was actually a justification for this phenomenon?

Good question.
sorry Tadpokenerd, but you're kinda repeating my question as a statement. josh123z, make that an answer, it actually makes enough sense to be plausible.

Its full body wont be touching the ground only its body part which used for digging will touching the ground. In other words,it will be flying/levitating in the ground and at the same time it will be digging.

I agree with dave. What you guys did was ridiculous, no offence semp. //upvotes daves answer//
also good answer. kinda makes sense.
but if you are digging with your body then shock would hurt you unless you had shock absorbers. you would be flying in the tunnel.

If your doubt is for a game working question it's because the ability levitate and the flying type give straight of inmunity to ground type attacks such as earthquake, there must be some kind of order in which this calculations or effects are taking in count and the ability must be on of the first or last.

Now, if your looking for a more physical or real life answer there can't be such, remember it's just a game (probably aimed for kids PROBABLY) and that there's much other questions like this that can't be answered there for gamefreak or the game it self does not offer a realistic biological explanantion of what happens in game.

It dosent work for dig oddly, but gravity and roost actually DO act like that, they make ground hit levitate/flying pokes. EDIT:didnt notice you said like before the others, it just dosent hit them, thats it.
