Groudon (Japanese: グラードン Guraudon) is a Ground-type Legendary Pokémon. Groudon is the Version Mascot for Pokémon Ruby.


Groudon is a red, black, grey, and white Pokémon. It has white spikes on its tail and neck. It has white sharp claws 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.


Groudon does not evolve.

In the games

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 he makes an appearance as an assist trophy and like the other ancient pokemon from Emerald/Sapphire/Ruby he makes a non playable appearance. Groudon will on the screen as a very large pokemon and will glow a red colour making him a fire attacker. He will be completely invincible and will launch any fighter away from it except the one who uses it, because of this it can be used as some what of a shield. Groudon will not attack but will turn around and roar.

In the anime

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.
