Groudon (Japanese: グラードン Guraudon) is a Ground-type Legendary Pokémon introduced in Generation III. Groudon is the Version Mascot for Pokémon Ruby and Pokemon Omega Ruby. It is a Primal Pokémon as well.

Biology

Physiology

Groudon is a red, black, grey, and white Pokémon with yellow eyes. It has white spikes on its tail and neck. It has white sharp claws on both its hand and it also has white toes. It has a greyish underbelly. It has a large tail with three sharp, white spikes appearing on the left hand side and right hand side of its tail. A black pattern also goes along its body.

As Primal Groudon, it becomes larger and has a deep crimson body. The spikes on both sides of its body, tail, jagged teeth and underbelly are black, with the spikes on the tail becoming longer and facing diagonally, instead of being straight. The four blades at the end of its tail are now split. Its sharp claws on its hands and its claws on its feet remain pure white. Both of Primal Groudon's hands bear an Omega symbol on them. The markings, some of which extend to its underbelly on its body and the Omega symbols it bears glow bright yellow as if lava is flowing inside of it, including the inside of its mouth and around its eyes, which changes to an orange red color.

Evolution

Groudon does not evolve. However, in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, it is capable of devolving into its Primal Form.

Game Info

In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Red Rescue Team/Blue Rescue Team, Groudon appears as one of the main villains. After the hero, the partner, and the Alakazam's Team discovered the truth about Ninetales' Legend, he causes an earthquake and, later in the game, the hero and the partner have to go to the deep of Magma Cavern to save Alakazam`s Team, defeating Groudon. After his defeat, he can be recruitable to the Rescue Team. He has a minor appearance in the next game, when he appears as an illusion created by Uxie. It is one of the heaviest Pokémon, as can be observed in the RSE Pokédex.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it makes an appearance as an assist trophy and like the other ancient Pokémon from Emerald/Sapphire/Ruby, it makes a non-playable appearance. Groudon will on the screen as a very large Pokémon and will glow a red color making it a fire attacker. It will be completely invincible and will launch any fighter away from it except the one who uses it, and because of this, it can be used as somewhat of a shield. Groudon will not attack, but will turn around and roar.

GROUDON

Groudon

Main article: False Groudon

Groudon had a fight with Kyogre at the place where Kyogre slept. Groudon appeared in the Pokémon Anime in Gaining Groudon!, and The Scuffle Of Legends!, debuting with Kyogre as well. Team Magma and Team Aqua were competing to gain both legendaries. Team Aqua, as it turned out, tricked Magma leader Maxie by taking Kyogre even after they had Groudon. Ash's Pikachu then shocked Groudon's cargo container and released it to fight against a rampaging Kyogre.

A false one also appeared in the 6th Pokémon Movie, Jirachi: Wish Maker which a Team Magma scientist tried to create, but the experiment failed ending in a massive Groudon-like monster.

Trivia

  • Groudon is the heaviest Pokémon, with 2094.4 lbs., or 950 kg.
    • Due to this, Groudon is extremely easy to capture with a Heavy Ball.
  • Groudon and Torterra are the same species. They are both known as the Continent Pokémon.
  • In Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, the player doesn't fight the real Groudon. Uxie created a hologram of Groudon that can fight.
  • It is the only Pokémon that naturally has the ability Drought. The only other Pokémon is Ninetales, which is capable of having it in the Dream World and Charizard, which gains this ability when using the Charizardite Y in battle.
  • Despite being Kyogre's ultimate rival, Groudon's typing puts it at a massive disadvantage. The only type effective move Groudon learns against Kyogre is Solar Beam; however, as Groudon is a physical-based Pokémon, this is another disadvantage because Kyogre is special-based.
  • An evil clone made in the likeness of Groudon appears in the movie Jirachi: Wish Maker; It is several times larger with tentacle-like appendages protruding from its back.
  • Groudon might be based on the Behemoth from Judeo-Christian religion.
  • Groudon and Kyogre don't enter battle in their Primal Evolution forms when battling for you.

Etymology

Groudon's name originated from the words "Ground" and "Geddon". Geddon's meaning being to crack the ground.
