Earth Plate

Description

A hold item that increases the Base Power of all Ground-type moves by 20%. When held by a Pokemon with the Multitype ability, the holder's type will change to Ground.

Competitive Use

An Arceus attached with the Earth Plate sees use on rain teams who are in need of a bulky Ground-type, as Groudon brings crippling sun with Drought and Garchomp has a nasty weakness to Dragon-type moves. Ground Arceus is extremely versatile, bringing a useful immunity to Electric-type attacks as well as becoming one of the few counters to Zekrom. It is generally best used as a bulky Swords Dance user, although it can also pull off solid supporting and Calm Mind sets very well.

However, it is generally useless aside from Arceus, as most other Ground-types find the power boost from Earth Plate to be too menial.
