PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

I know that gravity allows Pokémon like Rotom-Heat to be hit with supereffective ground type attacks through levitate, but what about flying type Pokémon? Would a Pokémon like corviknight, who’s normally immune to ground types, be hit with super effective damage in gravity since steel is weak to ground? Or does it just hit for neutral damage?

Phew! I hope this answered your question :D

Unfortunately yes, your Corviknight will receive super effective damage, not neutral, under the move Gravity.

According to Bulbapedia,

Intense gravity causes all Pokémon on the field to become grounded. Grounded Pokémon lose their immunity to Ground-type moves due to their Flying type, Levitate Ability, effects of Magnet Rise or Telekinesis, or their held Air Balloon. Grounded Pokémon are now also vulnerable to Arena Trap and entry hazards; Poison-type Pokémon that are usually airborne will remove Toxic Spikes when switched in during the effects of Gravity. Grounded Pokémon also become affected by terrains.
