Rock pokemon ARE weak against water attacks, but not water. They can touch and drink water but being attacked would hurt them. Ground pokemon are weak to grass attacks but are not afraid to walk through a scary meadow full of horrifying grass.

This is gonna sound way overthought and farfetched but here I go anyways. I think that Rock Pokemon are weakened by water because of a psychological trait. If they are overwhelmed by too much water at an alarming rate and they can't stop it and it continues (like a water attack or a sprinkler system, and NOT like in the volcano) they begin to get the feeling that they're drowning and in severe cases, may become so flustered and frantic that they slip into unconsciousness and faint. I believe this is where they got the whole water-over-rock thing. Not sure about that, but where else would they get the idea, eh?

Unknown, that was a typo, forgive me. As for Ninetales, that is how you spell it. N-I-N-E-T-A-L-E-S, with an E. It's called that because of Japanese legends of a nine-tailed fox that caused mischief in small villiages. Tails = Tales = Stories or Legends. It's a pun, nya? Look it up.

Well, Mars, I think I know where they got this water-over-rock thing. Water erodes rock. Our own beaches were once rocky cliffs, but over thousands of years were pounded by the waves and eroded into a rocky powder we call sand. That is why rock Pokemon are weak against water Pokemon. Case closed.

How about this- lava in the volcano is molten rock, OK? If something can melt rock, it can melt Rock Poke-Mon. And almost certainly other types excluding Fire type, which is just fire anyway. Charizard, Nine-tales and Magmar could help, but none of the others could. Brock's Poke-Mon would be a puddle of lava on the floor before they got anywhere near the rocks.

I think Rock-Type Pokémon are weak against Water-Type ATTACKS because, logically, rocks sink in water and, like that other dude said (daniel? someone like that?) they feel that drowning feeling. Also, as for all this Ember/Fire Blast stuff, an ember is a flaming coal, so if you see a Pokémon throwing hot rocks at another Pokémon, it's Ember. If they throw plain ol' fire, it's Flamethrower. Punching another Pokémon using flaming fists is Fire Punch. Fire coming from the mouth (or, in Ponyta and Rapidash's cases, the mane and tail) is Fire Blast.

Yes, I have always believed that much. I do think that Rock Pokemon are weakened dramatically by Water attacks, but are not always harmed by water in general. If they hate water that badly, it's no wonder Kabuto's extinct! Can't get outta the water, too dry! Get into the water, too wet! However, that did seem like a major error and I did have trouble believing that one at first. As for the fried Togepi bit, don't be rediculous. If Togepi fell there's not a chance in the world he'd get fried. More likely he'd be hard boiled. >=)

i think that rock pokemon are weak against water not only because of the orosion thing, but also all rock pokemon have cracks in them, especially geodude/graveller/golem, and water can get inside cracks.

I can't believe nobody else noticed this- why are ANY of the Pokemon enjoying it?! Starmie, Staryu and Squirtle were using Water Gun and Hydro Pump. As far as I know, those are Pokemon attacks. And how could Pikachu ever help with the rocks? He's not a lot like a fire or rock Pokemon.

If Geodude was having trouble with the rocks, then surely Pikachu would get a hernia!

plus, didn't Blaine say only a fire pokemon could resist the heat, then Brock said his rock pokemon could handle it. don't you think Pikachu would be fried? and topegi, didn't he nearly fall into the lava, that would make fried topegi? And pikachu went really slow compared to the other pokemon, how could he keep up with them if the rocks slowed him down so much?

Mew, what are you TALKING about "not weak against water"? You mean rock-types, right? I beat a L12 Onix with a L8 Squirtle in one hit!!!!!!! Master, yeah right.

They are in a volcano. It is really hot. Don't you think the water would evaporate before it could do that much damage?

OK, this "Case Closed" carp is getting to me. You said it before and I proved you wrong. Now listen up. It's true water erodes rock. Water will erode anything if given the time. But seriously, it takes hundreds or thousands of years to make any real difference. This is where they got the idea, but that doesn't explain worth magikarp why Rock Pokemon are weakened by water on the spot.

Most of the weakness/resistance stuff corresponds to simple logic, from the basic (water douses fire) to the abstract (if you threw a large rock at a bird, it'd hoit). Grounded things have no fear against electricity.

NateChu, if you think Rock Poke`mon would become weak near the lava, how come Rhydon's lived in it for most of his life? But then there is another point- Golem is a rock Poke`mon and can be defeated with Charmander's Ember. And yes, Rock Poke`mon are weak against water, but only if they are attacked with it. Think, people!!! Ahem. I think I've made my point. (@_@)

So you're saying Squirtle's water didn't hurt Golem because he meant it in a nice way?

Blaine is spelled B-L-A-I-N-E, not Blane. Baldy DID say that only fire pokémon can stand the heat, but what does he know??? Did you notice in the recap for the first part, the narrarator said Ninetails (not Ninetales or Ninelives) used Ember, but he/she used Fire Blast!

It's Ninetales, dude. Every official Pokémon web-site spells it Ninetales. Every Pokémon book spells it Ninetales. On the Game-Boy it's spelled- you've guessed it- Ninetales!

Oh, and Unknown- Nine-tales DID use Ember. I remember it well. Also, why does Charizard sometimes listen to Ash? Like in the PokéMon League, when fighting Blaine for the second time, and when fighting Mew-Two's clones in Mew-Two Strikes Back(which was, by the way, the worst movie I have ever seen and Pikachu's Vacation was just as nauseating if not worse)?

Oh, Ponyta- Fire Blast is where a tongue of fire comes out and widens into a star-like shape. It covers the opponent completely.

Note the quotes, T-zone. I was finishing your conversation for you. I hate Mars, but I like him/her more than I used to- he/she disses the PokéMon Handbook at every opportunity, and he/she agrees that Tracy and Chansey must both die. And he/she likes Gengar! But I get the impression Mars hates Digimon. This should decide it: I think PokéMon sucks, Digimon rules and even a Poyomon could defeat Pikachu in battle. Erm, no T-zone, we're not meant to be together. And it would be a whole lot easier if I knew the sexes and ages of you lot! I'm not telling you my age, but I'll tell you I'm female. The only things any of us know about each other is the shows, games and hobbies we enjoy. You can find this out easily, by just looking around the site. And yes, it's OK to tell each other our ages and sexes, because we can choose to give our e-mails or not. I rest my case. (Better than "case closed" anytime!)
