All types, strengths, and weaknesses in Pokemon Go

Every strength and weakness, broken down.

Pokemon Go, just like the traditional games, feature battles between Pokemon of different types. Pokemon moves have types as well, and each type and move has both its strengths and weaknesses. For example, a Fire Pokemon with a Fire move, such as Flamethrower, is generally strong against a monster that is either Grass or Bug. However, Fire Pokemon are generally weaker against Pokemon that have Water of Ground moves, thus making it important to know the strengths and weaknesses of each type.

Pokemon types

In Pokemon Go, there are 18 different types. There are:

  • Normal
  • Rock
  • Ground
  • Flying
  • Poison
  • Fighting
  • Bug
  • Grass
  • Water
  • Fire
  • Steel
  • Ghost
  • Electric
  • Ice
  • Dragon
  • Psychic
  • Dark
  • Fairy

Strengths and weaknesses

If a move is super effective against a type, that move will do 1.6x damage. A move that has normal effectiveness will have a damage multiplier of 1.0x. If a move is not very effective against a certain type, it does .625x damage, which is quite a bit less than a move that has normal effectiveness. Lastly, Pokemon that are immune to certain move types only take .391x damage.
