Groudon (グラードン, Gurādon) is a fictional creature in the Pokémon media franchise.

In Super Smash Bros. Brawl

As a Poké Ball Pokémon

Super Smash Bros. Brawl is the first Super Smash Bros. game to include Groudon, as Groudon didn't exist when the first two games were made. When summoned from a Poké Ball, the titanic Groudon appears and uses Overheat, covering itself with a fiery aura, damaging all opponents of the summoner that come into contact with it, even though it stands idly. Its size makes it hard to avoid when it first appears. Groudon's effect is very similar to Moltres's effect, except Groudon is much larger (approximately twice the size) and lasts longer. However, Groudon's attack is significantly weaker. While touching Moltres results in a OHKO, touching Groudon does rather low damage with low knockback, being incapable of KOing. While avoiding Groudon can be difficult, Groudon is arguably one of, if not the least effective Legendary Pokémon in the game, due to its low damage output and inability to KO.

Trophy Description

A Continent Pokémon. In ancient times, it brought about droughts to save people who had suffered from floods. It is normally found in the profound depths of the earth, where it slumbers in magma. With a mighty roar, it uses Earthquake to shake the ground and mow down enemies. In battle, summons sunlight to bathe the area. It once had an epic battle with Kyogre.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

Groudon appears an attack-type primary sprit. It can be upgraded to Primal Groudon.

Groudon Illusion Glitch

If a player throws a Poké Ball upward to an enclosed area that's smaller than Groudon (mostly in custom made stages, but also possible on the Pictochat stage) and ends up getting a Groudon, the Groudon will permanently get stuck, and no damage between other characters will be taken. This glitch has its name from an unknown smasher. Video confirmation - [1].
