    STRATEGY FOR WINNING BATTLES

    STRATEGY FOR WINNING BATTLES

    Pokmon can be divided up into different types, such as Normal, Fire, Water, Grass, and many others. There are 17 types in all, and all Pokmon belong to at least one. Types play a huge part in determining the outcome of battles, so make sure theyre working for you instead of against you.

    Master the Pokmon types

    Hit your enemys weakness for an upset victory

    All types are strong against some types and weak against other types. Its like a big game of rock-paper-scissors: Water is strong against Fire but weak against Grass. When you compare the type of the attacking Pokmon and the type of the defending Pokmon, its called a type match-up. A good type match-up will deal twice as much damage as normal.
