quote squiggle bathLike I said, this was a rom. Erm... but I do remember not being able to hit his pokemon with electric in firered/leafgreen (what the rom's based off of) ... And I noticed that all onix/geodudes I battle in the rom are hit. Haha so it's probably a mistake with the rom.quote simba94Light Ball didn't even exist until the GSC days. =/(I had a light ball)

quote GaerolthAnd ya could've just left it at 'Electric doesn't affect Ground.'quote HeartsThere's also people who are saying that thundershock doesn't work. You doubt us but if you look up even online guides they say the same thing. The link you quoted has also stated that onix/geodude are ground/rock. Serebii.net also states that electric has always been ineffective against rock. A strategy guide, written at the time of the games, that I used until the pages started falling out also states electric is ineffective against ground. No offense but other than your friends and a few people on the forums everything else everywhere else disagrees.quote GaerolthSorry for the doubt. I don't know so many people are saying they used thundershock.quote HeartsThis one doesn't refer to the anime. The nintendo power guides were really good back in the day. Back then I used the guide for everything.Gaerolth , sometimes guides can be rubbish even the one that say "Official". Only read ones that use serious, sophisticated language and ones that DO NOT refer to the anime. Anime and games are different.
I'm just going to point out the evidence here. There's people saying electric doesn't work on ground. There's people saying that electric does work on ground. Just because your friends state electric does work on ground doesn't make them right by virtue of them being your friends. My own friends have been wrong from time to time. Hell, I've been wrong from time to time. You're stating that there word is correct but in any reasonable debate you must supply evidence in your favor.
So far the evidence stands in our favor. As I quoted one of the main official guides at the time (It was Nintendo power and Prima.) The Nintendo power agrees that Electric doesn't effect ground. So now, as part of a debate, it's your turn to find evidence that contradicts my own evidence. If you state my source is wrong you must provide evidence that my source is wrong.
It's okay if you refuse to believe the sources posted. I can't make you believe me but the original poster brought up a question and the answer to his question is that Electric doesn't effect ground and never has. If the evidence quoted isn't contradicted then everything else is misinformation.
