    Default Bizarre question regarding Gligar, Dig, and Earthquake

    So today I was in the Battle Tower in Pearl when my opponent's Gligar used Dig. I switched to Torterra, since it's four times resistent, and also happens to know EQ. But then I wondered; normally Gligar is immune to ground attacks since it's part flying. But EQ hits Pokemon that are using Dig. Would an EQ on a Gligar that's in the midst of using Dig have any effect? Or is it still immune?

    Yeah, this is one of those strange cases in the game that I think should be fixed. I ran into the same thing...
    Opponents Vibrava used Dig!
    Blastoise used Earthquake!
    Vibrava's Levitate makes ground moves miss! (or something like that)

    I was like wtf, its underground?!

    I got the same thing with a vibrava too, it should be fixed, So basically any pokemon that is a levitate or part flying that uses dig, no ground moves can affect it? Thats not right

    I use that to my advantage in doubles. No one expects a digging Ninjask! And it has the speed to pull it off, too.
    If 50 Cent had been STAB'd instead of shot, he would be 75 Cent.

    And Torterra is not 4x resistant to Dig, just 2x. Ground does normal damage to Ground.
