PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I never really used the move, but I was wondering what were the pros/cons of it before I decide to teach it to my Garchomp or Scolipede or something else (in-game purposes). Also, do you recommend a Pokemon that is best suited with the move? Thanks!

earthquake is better
Earthquake is more damaging for the most part, but in doubles or triples (which isn't usually happening in-game) you can use it to lower the speed of all opposing Pokemon (like Earthquake, the parnter ideally levitates or flies).

No, you're better off teaching Scolipede and Garchomp Earthquake (both learn it by TM).
As for a Pokemon that is good with Bulldoze, well...... Bulldoze should only be taught to a Pokemon if they cant learn Earthquake or a better Ground move, 60 Damage is good enough for in-game until you get the Earthquake TM.

That's what I was thinking. Thanks!
In Black/White 2, you can teach Arcanine Bulldoze for getting past Elesa quickly, but then you'll have to remove it.
Seriously, 60 is the equivalent of Water Pulse...

I personally prefer Earthquake as it has more Power but up to you


Charizard does well with Earthquake- covers weakness
Garchomp does as well for STAB
Torterra works for me

Other Pokemon-


Emboar- My Emboar has Bulldoze

(I don't use Bulldoze much- but the link up there tells you all the Pokemon that can learn it)
