Under the possession of the Blue Orb, Ash's Pikachu would break Groudon out of its prison in the episode The Scuffle of Legends.

Groudon finds itself in the Uber tier of competitive battling. Groudon is severely overshadowed by its Primal counterpart, which has immense utility and is one of the biggest offensive threats in the Uber tier. While Primal Groudon is much better than Groudon in many regards, Groudon still has a small niche in the Uber tier as a physically defensive support Pokémon. Groudon's lack of a Ground weakness and ability to hold Leftovers makes it better when checking Pokémon such as Swords Dance Arceus with Earthquake, Excadrill, and opposing Primal Groudon. It can support its team with Stealth Rock and phase set-up sweepers with Roar.
Groudon cannot breed.
