Pokemon, or Pocket Monsters, are collectibles creatures that inhabit the Pokemon World. Each Pokemon has elemental powers, which allow them to manipulate energy and perform special moves. These elements are broken down into types. Types all have their own strengths and weaknesses and stack up differently against other types.
There are a total of 18 Pokemon types, and knowing how they interact with one another is key to winning Pokemon battles. A Pokemon type determines which types a Pokemon is strong (super effective) or weak (not very effective) against. We have the complete Pokemon GO effectiveness and weakness chart below for all Pokemon types.
