I've always looked at Ground type moves as Earth type. The only reason why I accept it being called Ground type, is because there is a Flying type, which is immune to Ground type moves. Makes sense.

Wind type Pokemon being immune to Earth type moves...? Maybe not. Sounds like it would be resistant at best.

The Flying type in general is just such a mess in Pokemon, and it all stems from Gen I. There was a beta typing called the Bird type, but GameFreak probably found it to be redundant with the Flying type. They removed all use of the Bird type while designating all Bird-type moves (Wing Attack, Peck, Drill Peck, Mirror Move, and Sky Attack) as Flying-type moves instead.

Gen II came along and changed the typing of Gust from Normal to Flying, which along with Aeroblast were the first moves to classify moves using wind as potential Flying-type moves. Gen III followed suit with Air Cutter, Gen IV with Air Slash and Tailwind, and finally Gen V with Hurricane.

Since GameFreak decided to lump air/wind moves into the Flying category, Tornadus was prevented from having another type like his brothers. If a "Wind" type existed, Tornadus would have obviously been a Wind/Flying Pokemon; incidentally, the moves Gust, Air Cutter, Air Slash, Tailwind, and Hurricane would now be Wind-type moves and it would no longer seem unfair to keep them from Thundurus (who wouldn't get STAB on them).

Of course, a "Wind" type would be just as redundant with Flying as the Bird type was and I can see why it's easier for GameFreak to just make wind attacks be Flying-type moves.

Makes no sense.

It's Pokemon. A video game.

It doesn't have to make sense.
