<p>D wno de ie o la Gud</p> <p>STRATEGY FOR WINNING BATTLESMaster the Pokmon typesPokmon 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.</p> <p> 17 Pokmon types in allNORMAL FIRE WATER GRASS ELECTRIC ICE FIGHTING POISON GROUND</p> <p>for example:</p> <p>POKMON TRAINER PRIMER</p> <p>Bidoof</p> <p>Chimchar</p> <p>Piplup</p> <p>Turtwig</p> <p>Shinx</p> <p>Snover</p> <p>Riolu</p> <p>Croagunk</p> <p>Hippopotas</p> <p>FLYING</p> <p>PSYCHIC</p> <p>BUG</p> <p>ROCK</p> <p>GHOST</p> <p>DRAGON</p> <p>DARK</p> <p>STEEL</p> <p>Chatot</p> <p>Mr. Mime</p> <p>Burmy (Plant Cloak)</p> <p>Sudowoodo</p> <p>Duskull</p> <p>Gible</p> <p>Houndour</p> <p>Bronzor</p> <p>Both Pokmon and moves have a typeMoves and Pokmon both have types. For instance, this Piplup is a Water-type Pokmon, but like most Pokmon, it can learn other types of moves as well.</p> <p> Move type affects attackPiplup attacks the enemy Bidoof with a Flying-type move. Attacks with Peck</p> <p> Example: PiplupPokmon typeWATER</p> <p> Pokmon type affects defensePiplup is hit by a Normaltype move from the enemy Bidoof.

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.</p> <p> Good type match-upsChimcharFIRE</p> <p> A good match-up deals twice the damage!Attacks with a Grass-type move</p> <p> A bad match-up deals half the damage.Attacks with a Grass-type move</p> <p>TurtwigGRASS</p> <p>TurtwigGRASS</p> <p>Turtwig PiplupWATER GRASS</p> <p>PiplupWATER</p> <p>The attack deals double damage since its a good match-up.</p> <p>The damage is halved because its a bad match-up.</p> <p>ChimcharFIRE</p> <p>21Protected by copyright.
