I'm no expert at movesets, but I'm sure you don't need Solarbeam... Bulk Up is good, replace it with that. And definitely Flamethrower over Fire Blast.

But ya know, that's just what I would perfer.

Thunder
Solarbeam
Fire Blast
Earthquake

It does well in battles aswell, the moves hit more than I expect them to.

pokemonisgr8, why would you put charcoal on Groundon? It's attack is strong enough.

And besides, move-boost items don't "boost" much, in the first place.

Trait: Drought
EVs: 252 HP / 252 Atk / 6 Spd
Adamant Nature (+Atk, -SAtk)

Something like this may work. I'm not sure, since I've never played 202 in my life ._.

Meh, you must be really lucky then cause Thunder during Groudon's ongoing drought would surely miss more than hit.

Try this.

Earthquake
Flamethrower
Solarbeam
Facade/Slash

Earthquake is there for STAB, and you can take advantage of its high physical with Facade or Slash. Both have the same power, but Facade would be better since it doubles the power during status conditions.

Since Groudon has Drought, Solarbeam is a 1-turn direct attack. Giving it that would serve as a defense against Water Pokemon. Secondly, The Sunny Day effect also boost fire-type moves, so Grass-Type and Ice-type Pokemon can be easily knocked out with a Flamethrower attack.

I just formulated that plan off the top of my head, but never experimented it. But it should work quite efficiently.

Flamethrower to take advantage of Drought.

Also thought I'd like to mention Ancientpower, just for the sake of trying to raise all your stats during battle...

Heck, I just love Ancientpower...
I wish it was a TM.

5 PP isn't too impressive :[ Especially when you keep trying to kill that annoying Skarmory with Ancient Power, you run out of PP, and poof :0 Oh yeah, I'm not talking about Groudon only, I'm talking about using AP in general, so don't tell me you have Fire Blast or whatever on Groudon.
