In episode 43 of the XY anime season 1, Korinna's Lucario used bone rush on Hawlucha, why would something like this happen, since bone rush is a ground type move? I know that the anime doesn't always follow the rules, but still, I wanted to know if there was some sort of exception. There were many more incidents like this, but I didn't want to keep spamming questions.

The TV show was made by a completely different company. There are probably more differences than similarities.

Well hawlucha was on the ground, therefore being vulnerable to ground type moves

"It's the anime" is the simplest answer. In a video game with preset programming gives type advantages and disadvantages, but being able to portray all the little lgical inconsistencies in the games desn't work as well when made into a cartoon.

hawlucha does technically null ground, but it'd be weird to portray that if you're still essentially hitting him with a staff.

It also helps to prevent situations like this.
