The Ground type is one of the 18 Pokemon types. Ground has three weaknesses, Ice, Grass and Water. Ground is the only type strong against Electric types, and is strong against four other types (Fire, Rock, Steel and Poison). Ground moves don't affect Flying types.

Ground isn't very effective against two types; Bug and Grass; which both of them are weak to Flying and Fire type moves.

    • In addition, both types are weak to Fire and Flying type moves.
  • The type that Ground is immune also resist Grass.
    • In addition, two out of three types (Flying and Grass) are weak to Ice.
