With Drought and giving the first hit MegaCharizard can defeat rock types

When you factor in how much Drought powers up fire type moves and the increase in Special attack Charizard will take out stone edge users.

I used a blazekin against a Drought Groudon and the blaze kick attack did alot of damage to to ground type Groudon. And Ground is supposed to be strong against fire.

I'm tempted to point out that ground has no resistance against fire, but I'm not sure if srs...

Ground doesn't resist Fire, it's a common mistake, but only Rock, Water, Fire and Dragon resist Fire. Ground doesn't.

Ground is just super effective against fire, but it doesn't resist it.

Depending on the opponent, I believe Solar Beam would do more damage.

Depending on the special attack boost, megazard may be able to one-shot common weather users like Ttar and Toed. (Abomasnow goes without saying)

Well ok Ground is matched with rock in typing frequently so it would work.

How do you figure? Ground isn't weak to fire so a Rock/Ground type will still resist.

Except none of this changes the fact that if youre going with a sun team you're still better off choosing a drought user that is only 2x weak to stealth rock instead of 4x
