Pokemon Analysis

Tier List Explanation

Sharing similarities with Kyogre, Groudon also is another Pokémon that excels both at offensives and supportive capabilities. Although not the offensive behemoth that Kyogre is with its better Trainer Move and stronger move in rain-boosted Origin Pulse, Groudon ends up being even more versatile in terms of helping other units, with its Master Passive helping a multitude of physical attacker, like Spring May, Anniversary Steven, and Zinnia, and the sun summon on entry and extension being perfect for Fire and multiple Grass units, like Sygna Suit Red and Brendan. Groudon's Solar Beam also is an excellent move at 3/5, not only giving Groudon a good damaging single target option that's gauge efficient, but additionally debuffing the enemy's Special Defense with Mind Games 9, further boosting not only its own, but also the damage for its partners.
