Groudon VS. Kyogre

If a Groudon battled a Kyogre, and they were both same level, would drought or drizzle last for the rest of the battle? Zapdos 14:18, 24 February 2008 (UTC)

Maybe both... but is that possible? --Hey1031 14:28, 24 February 2008 (UTC)♫☆

I'm not completely possitive, but I think that they'll just cancel each other out. --Theryguy512 17:17, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
I've already had this dicussion before. The weather effect is chosen at random between the two. TESHIGIGAS 17:22, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
I've read that it's whichever Pokémon has lower speed. I don't know where I read that, but it was somewhere. Possibly here, possibly Serebii. Zurqoxn 23:02, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Well that actually does sound pretty logical. --Theryguy512 23:05, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Lower speed? Wait that doesn't make sense, it's not the other way around? Why would some Pokémon with lower speed have their ability to work quicker?
I know I'm going off-topic now, but how can I get Pokémon sprites to my signature like you guys have? TheBlazikenMaster 23:34, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Oh, I didn't see the lower speed thing. Yea, I think it will be the effect of the one with the higher speed stat. --Theryguy512 23:54, 24 February 2008 (UTC)
Come to think of it the one with lower speed CAN make sense. Could it be possible that the first weather takes effect and then the other one replaces it? I'd love to see a YouTube video of this happening. TheBlazikenMaster 00:30, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
I got a better idea I will MAKE a YouTube video with that happening. I will do that on Wednesday. TheBlazikenMaster 00:33, 25 February 2008 (UTC)
I'm up for a battle, 1 on 1, Groudon VS (my) Kyogre. Tina281 00:35, 25 February 2008 (UTC)

I thought it was whoever was sent out second, their Ability will take effect... ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 01:52, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Except for the fact that they're both sent out at the same time. It's the Θρtιmαtum♏Talk|Links01:58 4 Jun 2008
But the games don't actually show them being sent out at exactly the same time... ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 16:43, 4 June 2008 (UTC)
When its groudons turn, drought is in effect and vice versa (MathijsP 16:57, 4 June 2008 (UTC))
If that's the case, then Kyogre should win the battle seeing that it has the type advantage that is increased by its Drizzle Ability. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 17:05, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

I've had experience with this since me and my friend battle our groudon and kyogre respectivly, the pokemon who is sent out second will have it's ability active since it overrides the first one's ability, speed has nothing to do with it and no game has changed that not even battle revolution. so technically it's random since the the first one out almost always changes each battle. - Geomexis 13:38, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Fake Groudons

Perhaps it could be an interesting trivia how Groudon copies and illusions have appeared lots: That thing in the Jirachi movie, Mismagius' illusion and Uxie's illusion in Pokemon Mystery Dungeon 2

exactly, I forgot about the Mismagius thing but it is definatley trivia worth UltamateCharizard 16:13, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

Groudon Origins

I noticed that there is no similarity to Groudon and Godzilla. Considering it battles Kyogre and levels sootopolis, also considering its appearance, I think Godzilla should be added to its list of possible origins.--Janis 20:02, 17 August 2009 (UTC)

yes, it could be, and it could be compared that Groudon's Solar Beam comes out from its mouth like what Godzilla do when it uses its Atomic Breath? Palkia38 11:57, 24 September 2009 (UTC)

not to mention that it's shiny form is yellow, like godzilla.--Mtn otter We are the Void 00:12, 25 October 2009 (UTC)

wait what? in what godzilla anything is godzilla yellow?! i grew up on godzilla stuff and i think i'd remember his color changing from he dark green, dark blue, or dark browns that he's always been depicted as to yellow. - Geomexis 13:40, 17 January 2010 (UTC)

Something else about the name origin?

Perhaps the "don" in "Groudon" stands for the Japanese ドンッ (don) which is an onomatopoeia for a crash? (Considering that Groudon can create earthquakes by slamming its feet onto the ground, they would make the "don" sound) Just wondering. Ztobor 04:37, 31 December 2009 (UTC)

HG/SS Japanese Text

I notice that the Japanese text here is not translated like in most/all of the other Pokémon pages. I would do this, but I don't speak japanese and I know Google translator can be very iffy when translating more than a word or two. If someone could do this, that would be great.Poisson14 02:11, 16 February 2010 (UTC)
