So I should go with Ground types?
WELL, MOVES LIKE LOW KICK AND GRASS KNOT DO A HELL LOT ON GROUND, SINCE MOST ARE VERY HEAVY. GROUND THOUGH HAS IMMUNITY TO ELECTRIC SO ITS BETTER THAN ROCK.

I'm gonna answer for both of your questions with real life answers. Rocks are just minerals pressed together while the ground is not rock, it surrounds the rock so that explains it being two different things.

And Ghosts are considered spirits most of the time while dark things are considered evil, so that explains that.

Hope This Helped!
