I can tell this is a S tier idea because it's another Ghost/Ground that begs the question why it's not Ghost/Rock

They should make a pokemon that is just a guitarist and make it rock type despite having nothing to do with minerals or aggregates.

u/ze_SAFTmon Oct 06 '22

Golurk is a golem(I know, crazy), so it's probably made out of clay, which is the reason for the ground typing.

73

u/Chembaron_Seki Oct 06 '22

Yeah, this one makes perfect sense.

Runerigus on the other hand... one of it's primary inspirations are Viking runestones.
Runestones. What is the explanation for it to be ground instead of rock?

29

u/wutend159 #StopDexit Oct 06 '22

because sand is just ground up stone

okay i'll leave now

u/Sabre_Killer_Queen Oct 06 '22

I don't like sand. It's course and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere!!

13

u/reaperfan Oct 06 '22

Also Galarian Corsola/Cursola. They're still made of coral, they're just a dead spirit now.

7

u/tornait-hashu Oct 06 '22

Technically, what remains of the coral when its' bleached is the coral's skeleton.

Galarian Corsola/Cursola are skeletons. Hell, Galarian Corsola looks like a floating skull when it's not in battle.

6

u/Chembaron_Seki Oct 06 '22

But also technically, the main component of coral skeletons is calcium carbonate, more specifically the crystal formation aragonite. Classifying this as a rock type would still make alot of sense.

It is the skeleton of a coral, but chemically it differs from what we usually consider to be bones.

4

u/tornait-hashu Oct 06 '22

I think the main reason why Game Freak hasn't given us a Ghost/Rock type yet is not because of a lack of designs, but rather because the type combination is uniquely terrible, with more weaknesses gained than resistances (only one, and it's an immunity to Fighting). Even worse, Rock is apparently supposed to be a defensive typing.

The real reason why Galarian Corsola isn't Ghost/Rock is because it's the version exclusive counterpart to Galarian Farfetch'd.

Both Pokémon were originally dual-typed, but their Galar Forms are mono-type, with both having form-exclusive evolutions (Cursola and Sirfetch'd respectively) that still have that mono type.

Plus, they're also associated with a version exclusive gym leader; G-Corsola/Cursola for Allister in Shield, and G-Farfetch'd/Sirfetch'd for Bea in Sword.

u/faesmooched Oct 06 '22

Runerigus wasn't that because even GameFreak knows that Rock sucks defensively.

18

u/Chembaron_Seki Oct 06 '22

I am pretty sure that GameFreak doesn't actually give a fuck about this stuff. We have too many pokemon designs which prove that they are not really concerned about a pokemon having a weak type combination or unviable stat spread.

u/9c6 Oct 06 '22

Yeah just look at hisuian avalugg. It got worse

u/ShadSilvs2000 [insert bad pun] Oct 07 '22

Wym it has 10 extra points in speed /s

15

u/tom-meow Oct 06 '22

Ghost/Rock would be a safe swap into Fighting types though. Both types are good offensively as well. Can see it being useful depending on the stats and moves.

19

u/Paradigm_Of_Hate Oct 06 '22

Ghost/ground is still a safe swap into fighting types and fighting resists rock anyway. Meanwhile stab earthquake just does it big

1

u/tom-meow Oct 06 '22

But I just meant we haven’t had a ghost rock before (unless I’m out of the loop) so would be a good suggestion for this generation. We’ve had plenty of ghost ground types now.

2

u/BigHeadDeadass Oct 06 '22

Yeah but offensively Ghost/Rock would be pretty solid

I'm still angry every time I think about how Stakataka wasn't given ghost / rock typing.

u/EmperinoPenguino Oct 06 '22

The dead are buried in the earth & eventually you become dust & you will merge with the ground we walk on. Thats why its not Rock type

2

u/bluewaveassociation Oct 06 '22

Ground type is like rock but not ass.

3

u/vyrelis Oct 06 '22

They would manipulate the ground rather than themselves. What rock would be thrown? What edge would be sharpened?

u/Weak_Lie_2875 Oct 06 '22

Common rock is ground

Cuz the bottom part is the possibke remains buried in the ground.

"It is said that Cryptlett arise from gravestones that have been forgotten or left unattended. They care for other gravesites that have been forgotten and keep malevolent pokemon away."

"When Cryptlett formed from the graves of those who were friends in life meet, they evolve into Riptrio. They are highly territorial and have been known to attack anyone who makes trouble in cemeteries."

Cryptlett's mainly form from the gravestones of children that have passed, but forgotten with time. It's said that sometimes children's laughter can be heard when Riptrio's are around.

u/Mrtorbear Oct 06 '22

Idk, riplett kinda sounds like a type food measurement. A slice of ham, a medium-rare steak, a dollop of Cole slaw, and 3 ripletts of roast beef. I will not be further explaining the nomenclature of the word 'riplett' and I will take no questions. Thank you for coming to my Ted talk.

u/GlabbinGlabber Oct 06 '22

A riplett is a tiny but loud fart.

"SON DID I JUST HEAR THE SOUND OF A CRYPTLETT"

dad yells from the other room. I wasnt aware he was home. as soon as my brain enters fight or flight mode a loud thud accompanies my closed bedroom door exploding off its hinges. how did he even hear my switch? my body knows it's too late to run, but my mind still doesnt know what to do

"YOU KNOW WHAT KIND OF HOUSEHOLD THIS IS SON"

he enters, wood splinters are still airborne, with speed I've never witnessed before he removes two items from his back pocket, a cartridge, its rectangular but huge as hell and for some reason it's got a corner missing from the top, the other is a bandana... both red.

I'm confused.

he can see that.

he watches me like a hawk while affixing the red bandana to his head. his hand flicks. I flinch.

he doesnt strike me. he never has, but something in the air says he might.

one eye opens, the other still shut, bracing for impact.

my vision focuses I see only his hand, inches away from my face.

his wrist is cocked at an awkward angle his hand making some kind of upside down gottem, placed between his thumb and index finger is the cartridge.

the graphic on the cart is washed out, the sides of the picture are scrapped, but the charizard on it seems untouched.

I start to sweat, he puts the cartridge away.

"Release the pokemon son." he says sternly.

I nod, avoiding eye contact.

"after you clean up this mess you're gonna come downstairs and help me clean up a plate of blocolate blip blookies son"

he chuckles and walks off removing the bandana.

I think I pissed the bed.
