Types (Japanese: タイプ Type) are a property for Pokémon and their moves. Each type has three properties: which types of Pokémon it is super effective against, which types of Pokémon it is not very effective against, and which types of Pokémon it is completely ineffective against. There are 20 types, each of which is listed to the right.

A Pokémon may have either one or two types. For instance, Pyrup is a Fire type, while Leachop is both a Plant type and a Wind type. With the current 20-type system, there are a possible 380 different type permutations; meaning that there are 190 possible type combinations. As of Generation FI, there are ??? different type combinations. A move may have only one type.

Within the games, most Gym Leaders, members of the Elite Four, and some other Trainers are designed to have a type-specific theme.

Type effectivenessEdit

If the type of a move used by a Pokémon is strong against the opponent's type, then the damage done is twice the normal amount; if a move's type is weak against a specific type, then the damage done is half the normal damage done. The existing type matchups were heavily modified in Generation FI. The new type matchups are as follows:
