Top 5 most intimidating Ground Pokemon of all time
#5 - Landorus
Landorus, when he crosses his arms and raises his eyebrow, is very intimidating. The Guardian of the Fields is a very powerful Legendary Pokemon. When Tornadus and Thundurus are in a scuffle, Landorus can come in and calm them down. Having that kind of power is incredible.
#4 - Steelix
Steelix is a massive steel snake. It is actually known as the Iron Snake Pokemon. It has one of the most menacing appearances in the entire franchise. The look on its face just screams dangerous. The prospect of battling Steelix means its opponents need to prepare to be crushed to death.
#3 - Nidoking
Nidoking is one of the roughest and meanest Pokemon. It has maintained that status ever since it was introduced in the original Generation I. Nidoking's tail is said to be capable of knocking down entire metal transmission towers. Its horn is powerful enough to crush diamonds. Nidoking is just plain fierce.
#2 - Groudon
Groudon, in its normal form or as Primal Groudon, is one of the most intimidating Ground-type Pokemon. This Legendary has the ability to summon intense droughts, cause volcanic eruptions, and actually create new land to travel across. It even sleeps underground in magma chambers. All of that, along with its massive size, makes it a force to be reckoned with.
#1 - Garchomp
Garchomp is arguably the best Pokemon that competitive battling has ever seen. This huge Dragon/Ground-type is able to fly as fast as a jet plane. It is even known to eat entire flocks of birds as a single meal. Garchomp is proud of its wings and when it Mega Evolves, seeing them turn into scythes sends it into a raging frenzy. That is horrifying to think about.
