Default swinub or ___

After having a Swinub for a little while, I am really not too thrilled with it (my other team pkmn are curently Gengar, Horsea, and Togetic), and Swinub seems to need the most exp to raise a level, dies most often, and kills other pokemon the least often. What would be a good ground type to replace my Swinub (it knows ancient power, so I can get a Mamoswine)?

this isn't for competetive battleing, just for the game. I have leaf green, ruby, saph, and emerald, so i can get most pokemon, and my friend has beaten the game and can transfer anything, so most options are open (they have diamond, btw)

alright^^ well it really depends what your favorite ground pokemon is. I decided mine was probably dugtrio or something.

but there are so many you can choose from^^ you could get a Steelix if you wanted. those are pretty cool.

i'm not quite sure what my fav ground is, since i rarely use them, so its high time i experiment, i just don't seem to like swinub, that's for sure. the last time i used a ground type majorly in my party probably was pkmn blue (back when dig killed ghost types, then they all got levitate...)

if you can turn swinub into mamoswine then he becomes powerful but you need the national dex to evolve him.

as for good ground, dugtrio is one i like because it has good speed. golem is more slow but high defense and attack. but overall for in-game almost anything would work out just fine.

I agree with Ulazlo on this one^^ it doesn't really matter what you pick. I would just make a team of your favorite pokemon as long as they're a little different type wise^^ if anything you can teach earthquake to another pokemon, and just say that's your ground type :3

i've discovered that you don't actually need a national dex to evolve him! I gave my freind a togepi, and she evolved it into a togekiss without a national dex (i gave her the togepi without her having one either, as well as an eevee egg). I don't currently have a national dex, but with the trading of eggs allowed, i still got a Horsea and Togepi with my id on them (it just says that its number is '???'). Since this means that, as long as i have connections to people with a national dex, i can get any ground pokemon i want! i jsut don't know which one i want...so far, Dugtrio or Tyranitar sound good from what i've been hearing...

Tyranitar is a very good pokemon. the only problem is the evolution being at level 55. up to then it kinda sucks to level.

Choose Dugtrio, because Tyranitar will evolve too late you need something now

isn't that pretty much what I just said? lol^^

but yeah, I'd suggest dugtrio based on the evolution thing and he learns earthquake at like level 34 or somehwhere close to that.

rampardos has awesome attack. Too bad it has unimpressive moves and relativly low scores in all other departments.

What about the Gible family?
Garchomp is an awesome Pokemon.
It's Dragon/Ground, it's basically what you're looking for plus one of the strongest types in the whole game. XP

If you gave us a better idea of what stage in the game you were at that would help alot, as for a ground pokemon at anypoint, you could go with a Shellos/ Gastrodon, Quagsire, or any of those ground water pokemon.
