What are Steel type’s weaknesses in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?

Steel-type Pokémon have many different weaknesses. One of those weaknesses, Fire, makes quite a bit of sense. There are some other weaknesses, though, that you will need to be aware of throughout playing Scarlet and Violet. This is especially true should you attempt to use a Steel-type monster in a playthrough of either Scarlet or Violet.

Let’s start with defense and what moves are stronger against Steel-type Pokémon. Here is the full list of Pokémon type moves that are super effective against Steel types:

  • Fire
  • Fighting
  • Ground

On the offensive side of things, Steel-type moves are half as effective against certain types of Pokémon. Those Pokémon that have that ability are the following types:

  • Electric
  • Fire
  • Water
  • Steel

Remember, Steel-types moves are half as effective as compared to against other monsters. Unlike with some other Pokémon, there are no monsters that are immune to Steel-type moves.
