Pokemon go is gaining popularity again, and it’s getting everyone to start researching what kind of Pokemon they should catch, train, and use in raids / battles.

The best rock-type Pokémon in Pokémon Go

Before we start, we want to cover some important things by reading this list. Everything on the list below affects how we rank the best Pokémon, so you’ll want to take a look at it at least once.

  • Pokémon Alterations: Some Pokémon can be modified into different versions, which boosts them significantly in such a way that you can place them at the top of a list, even if their standard version wouldn’t be there. However, altered versions of Rock Pokémon are very rare, which is why we have excluded them from these lists.
  • Combination types: Any type of Pokémon can be mixed with any other type, which can cause some confusion when choosing the best one. These secondary types can change the recommended move set, weaknesses, and other important stats like Max CP. Because of this, we’ve included a list specifically for Rock-exclusive Pokémon.
  • The algorithm: We determined our lists by obtaining the statistics of the ten Pokémon with the highest CP in its category. Next, we take the averages of his max CP, offense, defense, and stamina. Ranks are determined by which Pokémon has the best overall placement for those stats. We did it this way because It means that you get not only the highest CP, but the strongest Pokémon ranked by balanced averages.
