Types are aspects of Pokémon and attacks, which give them an advantage over some types but a disadvantage over others. There are 18 types in total.

Each Pokémon can have one or two types. When it has only one type, it's called pure-type Pokémon and when it has two types, the one of types is called primary type and the other secondary type. Attacks on the other hand can have only one type.

Type effectivenessEdit

There are several dependencies between types:

  • When Pokémon because of its type is weak to specific type attack, such attack is Super Effective against it and its damage is multiplied by 1.4.
  • When Pokémon because of its type is resistant to specific attack, such attack is Not Very Effective against it and its damage is multiplied by 0.8.
  • When Pokémon because of its type is immune to specific attack, such attack is Not Effective against it and its damage is multiplied by 0.5.
  • When type of used attack is the same as the type of Pokémon that uses it, its damage is multiplied by 1.25. See STAB.

Pokémon summary page backgroundsEdit

There are different backgrounds on Pokémon summary page depending on Pokémon's primary type.

Prior to release of Johto-region Pokémon, there was no backgrounds for Dark and Steel-type Pokémon, as none of the Kanto-region Pokémon has these types as the primary ones. Also despite of presence of background for Flying-type Pokémon in game files, there is no use for it, as none of the Pokémon that are currently available in the game have Flying as their primary type.
