I just don't get it! Eelektross is standing and so is it's pre evolution, Eelectrik.

Just because it has feet doesn't mean it's standing. Levitate means to hover above the ground, which is basically what it does. Gengar also appears to stand and Carnivine is a plant (normally rooted in the ground!) and they both have Levitate too.

Remember, some birds appear to stand on the ground but also avoid Ground-type moves. Think of it like they can raise themselves off the ground quickly to avoid those attacks.

Electomagnetic field could be so powerful that it hovers above the floor

I don't either, but it doesn't really matter, because - after all - the ability levitate doesn't mean the Pokemon has to be a ghost.

I agree. Why does it matter that he is on the ground?
i never thought of it that way before.....
Maybe GameFreak were being nice?
