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.

STR ATE GY FOR WINNI NG BATTLES

Hit your enemys weakness for an upset victoryAll 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.

Good type match-upsChimcharFIRE

A good match-up deals twice the damage!Attacks with a Grass-type move

A bad match-up deals half the damage.Attacks with a Grass-type move

The attack deals double damage since its a good match-up.

The damage is halved because its a bad match-up.
