Ex Dusclops uses gravity. (lets say we're in a trick room so it most likely goes first, k? Also in doubles)
Gliscor uses earth quak on a flying type

How much damage would it do? Normal amount as in no reis?

With the Gravity effect in play, Flying types are vulnerable to ground type attacks, and will be neutrally effective when hit by a ground-type attack.

For example, if Talonflame gets caught in Gravity, a ground-type attack will be super-effective against it (neutral to flying-typing, but 2x as effective against its fire-typing). Vice verse, if a Pokemon like Jumpluff gets caught in Gravity, a ground-type attack will be not very effective against it (neutral to flying-typing, but 0.5x as effective against its grass-typing).

So, flying types who double with a Fire, Electric, Poison, Rock, or Steel typing will have ground super-effective against them. Flying types who double with Grass or Bug typing will have ground not very effective against them. All other flying-typing will receive neutral damage.

Hope I helped! :)

If Gravity is in effect, this Pokémon is given an Iron Ball or a Ring Target, or it is affected by Smack Down or Ingrain, the effectiveness of Ground-type moves is 1×.
