Groudon is a Legendary Pokemon and thus can only be gotten in time limited ways, by being featured in Event Raids or Field Research Breakthroughs. They are the a pretty safe investment to power up, but might get Precipital Blade someday. Mud-shot and Earthquake got buffed December 2019.
With Level 35 Groudon you need 2 players.

Rhyhorn is very common and boosted in the common Sunny, but Rhyperior is a Sinnoh Stone evolution Pokemon. Rhydon is a pretty good Ground-Type as well, so if you get a good moveset on it and don’t have the candy or stone to evolve, it’s not that bad. It’s also great as a Rock-Type attacker with different moves. Rhyhorn currently can be found in nests.

Mudkip Community day way July 2019, but the moveset you want isn’t the community day move. Swampert as a Ground-Type is unfortunate, since it’s Water typing negates some of it’s resistances to Electric. It does give it a resistance to Steel and Fire however! Mudkip currently can be found in nests.

Riolu is an egg exclusive pokemon sadly, one of the absolute rarest and highly desired ones in fact. It was added October 2018th. It isn’t easy to power up and has a walking distance of 10k. There are increased chances of finding one in a 7k Alolan egg instead of normal 10ks. You also have better chances if you get difficult Adventure Sync eggs. if you collect your weekly adventure sync reward and have earned the 50k distance, AND have an available egg slot, you will get an egg with a skewed hatch pool.
