What's next, you're going to tell me that Magnemite and Magneton are getting a new type, too?

When I was younger I kept confusing rock types and ground types. Like, seriously, aren't rocks part of the ground?

@Alienoid: heh heh, i use to do that too XD

@Alienoid: The ground consists of a mixture of rocks, broken down rocks, plant matter e.g. pines from pine trees, leaves, twigs, branches, fruit sometimes, and anything else that can be broken down into part of the ground e.g. dead animals.

So the ground is much more complex in structure than just rocks themselves and often has multiple different layers.

I've never really thought about the fact that the guy at each gym seems to be everywhere at once. Is he like nurse joy, and just comes from a family where everyone looks the same, or is he secretly some mighty omnipotent figure, like Arceus or Mew in disguise?

For Red's sake, I hope it's the prior.

@Alienoid: Well, in the first gen there wasn't one pure rock-type Pokemon. Most of them were part ground too.

@MoogleSam: ...So any Ground typed Pokemon are make of dead animals...

Reply MoogleSam, September 9th, 2014, 9:22 am

@1ce_k1d: Not really made of 'dead animals' so much as the components that made up the dead animals e.g. carbon, nitrogen & phosphates, as a result of decomposition. But that is mainly with brown earth which is mainly what people refer to as 'the ground', though most of the ground we walk on has an added layer on top called cement.

There are multiple different types of 'ground' some like sand mainly consist of things like salt, tiny bits of rock, tiny bits of shell etc, while others consist of only rock and clay.

Ground types are not actually made OF the ground though, they just use moves that relate to the ground. :V

@1ce_k1d Watch Surfersquid implement this into the comic. 8'V

Didn't you hear? Dugtrio's getting a new Mega evolution so the heads work like a helicopter! and strangely the churned-earth is still there, so.

(...in all seriousness, though, it wouldn't be THAT much weirder than Mega Slowbro.)

Surprised this topic didn't come up earlier with all the Psychic-types in Koga's gym, even the Sandshrew in the Rock gym.

@Coaster: I didn't think of it until now. :P

The gym leader has a normal type... Well then.
