Assault Vest Groudon.png

Precipice Blades works as Groudon's signature move. This 120BP STAB-move is guaranteed to deal significant damage. Additionally it grants Groudon additional Sp.Def boosts when used as Max Quake. It's exceptional to consider that after one Max Quake, Groudon can live a Max Geyser from Kyogre in the rain.

Fire Punch and Thunder Punch serve as great coverage moves for Groudon. Both of these moves can help Groudon against the types its' weak to and provide added utility by inflicting status. Notably, Fire Punch also gets a boost from the sun.

Solar Beam serves as the final coverage move for Groudon which can become a one-turn move in the sun. But it also has the added benefit of adding Grassy Terrain thanks to Max Overgrowth. This will provide Groudon with passive recovery.

This moveset utilizes a bulky physical attacker spread with maximum investment in HP and Atk. The remaining EVs can be placed in Sp.Def to distribute bulk.

Drought lets Groudon set the sun as he enters the battlefield. This can help boost the power of Fire-type attacks, while also effectively eliminating its Water-type weakness.

Assault Vest raises Groudon's Sp.Def by 50%, further increasing its bulk, while restricting it to use only attacking moves.

Heat CrashAs one of the heaviest Pokemon in the game, Heat Crash is an alternate choice for a Fire-type move.
Stone EdgeAn alternative coverage move to deal with Flying-types.

Weakness Policy Groudon.png

This moveset has EVs set up in a way that it can survive against Kyogre, while being able to revenge kill it with Max Lightning after the Weakness Policy Boost. Enough Speed EVs are also given to make sure it's slower than Kyogre (which means that sun will be set when they're switched into the battlefield at the same time.)

This set revolves around Groudon receiving a boost from Weakness Policy, ideally from being hit by a water-type move. Despite being super-effective, Drought actually reduces the damage dealt by water-type moves. This allows Groudon to benefit from Weakness Policy, without receiving increased damage.

Solar Beam A grass-type coverage move for Groudon which can become a one-turn move in the sun. It also has the added benefit of adding Grassy Terrain for recovery thanks to Max Overgrowth.
Swords DanceAllows Groudon to set up on its' own without having to wait for the Weakness Policy Boost.

As a Ground-type, Groudon stands extremely well against Zacian and Eternatus by threatening them with its STAB moves. Since Zacian and Eternatus are both highly used Pokemon in the tier, having Groudon can serve as a reliable way to deal with them.

The best way to get a boost from weakness policy is by taking a super-effective water-type move with Groudon. This is because Drought halves the damage dealt by water-type moves, but Groudon will still benefit from boosts thanks to its type effectivity.

Groudon works well enough on its own, but partners really well with Venusaur. Thanks to the sun that Drought provides, Venusaur can take advantage of boosted speed thanks to Chlorophyll. Venusaur's STAB-moves also help deal with Groudon's weaknesses to Water and Grass.

Urshifu Single-Strike Style works as a third member for this team as it covers both of its teammates' weakness to Ice-types and is also immune to Venusaur's weakness to Psychic types. Groudon in turn can cover its' teammates weakness to Flying-types with its' Rock-type coverage moves.

How to Build an Offensive Team

Groudon is naturally physically bulky so it would be best to attack it from its' special side. It woule be even more so effective if you attack with types it's weak to.

Groudon boasts a high attack power, but may have trouble dealing with physically bulky enemies.

Pokemon Crown Tundra: How To Catch and Find Groudon and Kyogre

The Crown Tundra was a much-needed dose of content for Sword and Shield.

The ample amount of returning legendary Pokemon is perhaps what most players are excited for.

All the familiar faces from previous generations are present in the DLC.

Dialga and Palkia appear to be a fan favorite, as fans are probably hoping they will remaster Diamond and Pearl in the near future.

A game that was recently remastered is Ruby and Sapphire, and the cover Pokemon behind this game is obtainable now!

Here's how to find Kyogre and Groudon. 


A core component that has been introduced during the Crown Tundra is Dynamad Adventures.

Essentially these are ways for players to get ahold of all the new Pokemon within the game.

You can either partake in these solo or with online friends, so we recommend doing it in a group.

You will be able to find rare Pokemon during these, and the farther you go within the cave; the more likely you are to encounter a legendary Pokemon.

Nintendo has noted these adventures as the following: 

In Dynamax Adventures, you’ll team up with three other Trainers to explore a Pokémon Den where Dynamax Pokémon are said to lurk!

Instead of your regular Pokémon team, you and your fellow Trainers will choose rental Pokémon to bring along into the depths of the den. If you encounter a wild Dynamax Pokémon during your exploration, you’ll need to work together with your three teammates in a Max Raid Battle!

This will apply to the Hoenn region legendary Pokemon as both Kyogre and Groudon will be obtainable via Dynamax Adventures.

It is also important to note that these Pokemon are version exclusive!

If you are playing Pokemon Shield, you will be able to catch Kyogre.

While if you are a Sword owner, you will be able to find and catch Groudon!

Pokemon Archives posted the following video showcasing them catching these Pokemon, check it out below.
