Notable Attacks/Techniques:

  • Drought: Base Groudon only. Summons harsh sunlight when it starts to battle. The harsh sunlight can strengthen any Fire Type attacks while also weakening any Water Type attacks in the battle; it can also allow the move Solar Beam to be used instantly.
  • Desolate Land: Primal Groudon only. Affects weather in the same way as Drought. However, the heat is now so intense that it completely nullifies Water Type moves.
  • Hot Blooded: One of a series of Abilities that appeared in Pokémon Conquest. It allows Groudon to passively restore health while standing on lava/magma, soil, or sand.
  • Eruption: Groudon launches multiple fiery rocks up into the air from its mouth that rain down on the opponent.
  • Precipice Blades: Groudon's signature move. Groudon manipulates the earth, causing multiple spears of earth to stab the opponent that explode upon contact.
  • Thunder: Groudon fires off a massive bolt of electricity from its body that can cause paralysis. Its accuracy is increased under rain but decreased under sunny conditions.
  • Hyper Beam: Groudon charges a black and purple orb of energy in its mouth which it then fires off as a beam. Unlike most Pokémon Groudon does not appear to need to recharge afterwards.
  • Solar Beam: Groudon charges up and fires a green beam of solar energy from its mouth. Even under cloudy conditions Groudon can still charge up the attack rather quickly.
  • Flamethrower: Groudon fires off a destructive jet of flames from its mouth that can cause burns.

  • Scary Face: Groudon makes a scary face at the opponent to lower their speed.
  • Earth Power: Groudon causes the ground beneath the opponent to erupt with power. This may lower their special defense.
