Groudon (グラードン, Groudon) is a fictional creature in the Pokémon media franchise.

Origin[edit]

Groudon is a Ground-type Legendary Pokémon and the version mascot of Pokémon Ruby and, in its Primal form, of Pokémon Omega Ruby. It is the embodiment of landmasses, and its originally unique ability Drought is able to summon strong sunlight on the battlefield.

Overheat is a special Fire-type move with 130 (140 before Generation VI) base power and 90% accuracy which lowers by two levels the user's Special Attack stat after each successful use. Groudon is able to learn it using TM50 in every generation where it is available.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl[edit]

As a Poké Ball Pokémon[edit]

Groudon in the Pokémon Stadium 2 stage.

Groudon can be summoned by a Poké Ball: upon appearing it remains stationary, occasionally turning around, and uses Overheat, covering itself with a fiery aura which damages all opponents which come in contact with it. Its size makes it hard to avoid when it first appears.

Groudon's effect is very similar to Moltres's one, except Groudon is much larger (approximately twice the size) and lasts longer. However, Groudon's attack is significantly weaker: while touching Moltres results in a OHKO, touching Groudon does rather low damage with low knockback, being incapable of KOing until very high percentages. While avoiding Groudon can be difficult, Groudon is arguably one of, if not the least effective legendary Pokémon in the game, due to its low damage output and inability to KO.

Groudon Illusion Glitch[edit]

If a player throws a Poké Ball upward to an enclosed area that's smaller than Groudon (mostly in custom made stages) and ends up getting a Groudon, the Groudon will permanently get stuck, and no damage between other characters will be taken. [1]

North America Groudon is called the Continent Pokémon, and that's not just because it lives on them. Legend has it that Groudon actually created the continents. It has a rivalry with Kyogre, said to have created the oceans, and they apparently had an epic battle long ago. Perhaps our world was born from this great battle between land and sea.
