Ground (type)

Ground is one of the strongest types offensively: it is super-effective against five other types (as is Fighting) and Earthquake is one of the strongest moves in the game with power and accuracy both 100. Unfortunately, many Ground type Pokémon are dual Rock types, lumbering them with 4x Grass and Water disadvantages.
