Tip #4. Choose the Best Type(s) of Pokemon
Dealing additional damage, while taking reduced damage is important in defeating Geodude. Avoid using Types of Pokemon Geodude Moves are Super Effective against, instead try to use Types of Pokemon of which Geodude Moves are Not Very Effective against.

I. Geodude Type Weaknesses
To defeat Geodude you must first learn its Type weaknesses. Using specific Types of Moves that Geodude is weak against will result in those Moves dealing Super Effective damage (25% damage bonus).

III. Pokemon Weakness(es) vs. Geodude
Before we go any further, please take a minute to consider the following. Most of this guide is focused on dealing high amounts of damage in a short period of time, in order to beat Geodude as quickly as possible.

However, it is important to note that defensive Type weaknesses play an important role in Pokemon Go battles as well.
First off, Geodude can deal a great amount of damage using Rock Throw and Rock Slide. This is especially true if you are using Pokemon that are weak against these Move Type(s). The damage per second and ranking of this moveset is shown below.
High DPS Moveset for Geodude:
Move:Rock ThrowRock Slide

Category:Fast Charge
DPS:8.815.6
Rank (DPS):#73#91
DPS (w/ STAB):11.019.5

DPS:8.810.9DPS:12.115.68.8
STAB:11.010.9STAB:15.119.511.0
While Rock Throw and Rock Slide is a strong Moveset, most of Geodude's Moves will deal additional damage if used against certain Types of Pokemon as they will take increased damage from Geodude. Depending on the particular Moveset of the Geodude you are battling against, you will want to try and avoid using Pokemon of the following Types.
MoveXGeodude Moves are Super Effective Against
Rock Throw
Tackle
Dig
Rock Slide
Rock Tomb
On the other hand, there are certain Types of Pokemon in Pokemon Go, that will take less damage from the Moves of Geodude. Therefore, to survive longer during Gym battles you will want to try and use Pokemon of the below Types when battling against Geodude.
MoveGeodude Moves are Not Very Effective Against
Rock Throw
Tackle
Dig
Rock Slide
Rock Tomb
It is important to note that this is not the only factor in choosing the optimal Pokemon to defeat Geodude. If you have a Pokemon with much higher CP and a high damage Moveset vs. Geodude you will obviously want to use that Pokemon. You will be able to win the battle quickly before your opponent has even had a chance to deal much damage.

However, if you are using a Pokemon with average CP and an average moveset, choosing the right Type of Pokemon becomes much more important.
IV. Benefits of Type Weakness & STAB Damage
Getting back to the offensive side of battling, the next step is to identify which Pokemon have the capability of using Super Effective Moves against Geodude.

Furthermore, we must identify Pokemon that are the same Type as the Moves they are using. This will result in an added 25% additional damage bonus, commonly referred to as STAB (Same Type Attack Bonus).
If you are new to Pokemon Go or to the damage mechanics in general, be sure to review the chart below before making your way to Section V. (Best Pokemon Movesets vs. Geodude). It explains how Pokemon Go DB determines the best damage Moveset/Pokemon to beat Geodude.
The following chart explains the terms used in this guide:
Battle Mechanics Terminology (Quick Reference Guide)
DPSDPS stands for Damage per Second. The DPS of each Move is calculated by taking the Power of a Move and dividing it by the time (seconds) it takes to actually perform the move (also known as a cooldown).
STABSTAB stands for Same Type Attack Bonus. When a Pokemon uses a Move that is the same Type as itself that Move will deal additional bonus damage. For example, if a Rock Type Pokemon uses a Rock Type Move it will deal 25% more damage.
Best Fast MoveThe Best Fast Move is calculated by taking the highest DPS Fast Move a Pokemon is capable of using. This includes the 25% STAB bonus. Generally every Pokemon in Pokemon Go will have one of two possible Fast Moves.
Best Charge MoveThe Best Charge Move is calculated by taking the highest DPS Charge Move a Pokemon is capable of using. This includes the 25% STAB bonus. Generally every Pokemon in Pokemon Go will have one of three possible Charge Moves.
Best Fast Move DPS vs. GeodudeBest Fast Move DPS vs. Geodude is calculated by taking the Best Fast Move DPS w/ STAB and multiplying that DPS by 1.25 if Geodude has a single weakness to that Type or multiplying that DPS by 1.56 if Geodude has a double weakness to that Type.
Best Charge Move DPS vs. GeodudeBest Charge Move DPS vs. Geodude is calculated by taking the Best Charge Move DPS w/ STAB and multiplying that DPS by 1.25 if Geodude has a single weakness to that Type or multiplying that DPS by 1.56 if Geodude has a double weakness to that Type.
Average DPSAverage DPS is simply the average of the Best Fast Move DPS vs. Geodude and the Best Charge Move DPS vs. Geodude. The chart is then sorted by highest Average DPS to lowest.
V. Best Pokemon & Movesets to use against Geodude in battle.
The following chart lists the top Pokemon/Moveset against Geodude. The list is sorted by highest Average Damage per Second to lowest. Type Effectiveness and STAB play a big role in increasing the damage that is done to Geodude. If you follow every step in this guide, you will have a much easier time defeating Geodude. Good Luck!
