Like other Pokémon games Pokemon go offers many different types of Pokemon, each with their own Strengthen and weaknesses. In this Pokemon go In this guide, we’ll explain how Pokemon types work, what their strengths and weaknesses are, and provide a table so you know what’s strong against what.

Pokemon Go types, strengths and weaknesses

Pokemon also has its own set of weaknesses Y Strengthen. For example, Bug-type Pokémon are weak to Fire-, Flying-, and Rock-type moves. Insect-type moves are strong against Dark, Grass, and Psychic-type moves. Fire, Fly, and Rock-type moves deal double damage to an Insect-type like Caterpie.

Some Pokemon are dual-typed, meaning they can double weaken or nullify their strength and weakness to only take normal damage. Flying Dragon-type Rayquaza takes four times the damage from Ice-type attacks. On the other hand, Shuckle, a Rock and Bug type, takes normal damage from Fire-type moves since Rock-type is strong against Fire-type.

Strengths and weaknesses do not necessarily have to face each other. Although Fire-type moves do less damage to Water-type Pokémon and Water-type moves do double damage to Fire-type Pokémon, not all types do this. For example, Fighting-type attacks are powerful against Normal-types, but Normal-types only deal normal damage against Fighting-types instead of reduced damage.

Knowing the strengths and weaknesses of Pokémon is an important aspect of raids and battles. In order to deal the most damage, you need to make sure your Pokémon’s attacks are strong against what it’s fighting.

Memorizing all of this can be confusing, so here’s a chart to help you.
