Pokémon GO Type Chart: Strengths and Weaknesses of every Pokémon

Pick the right Pokémon for your battles!

There is a wide range of things to keep track of when it comes to Pokémon GO. That makes it a key element to mastering tackling various battles. The way Pokémon synergizes in Pokémon GO is somewhat different from the rest of the Pokémon series. Since it gets virtually impossible to keep track of all the Pokémon, our Pokémon Type Chart will help you with the details of all types in Pokémon GO with their strengths, weaknesses, and effectiveness in different types of battles.

Impact of Pokémon types in battles

Each Pokémon has one or two types, and it determines how battles are fought. Trainers should take note of types that are the strongest and weakest, as that impacts how much you can multiply your damage or how to lessen incoming damage. There are 18 different types in Pokémon go and each type is one of these: strong, weak, or neutral against other types.

At the most basic levels, this is analogous to rock, paper, and scissors. Fire beats Grass, which beats Water, which makes a full circle to beat Fire. Things at this level make sense, but once more complex types of Pokémon are introduced, such as types like Fairy or Dragon, or when there are Pokémon with multiple types.

From then on, it just gets even more complicated. Even a simple fire-type like Charizard comes with moves stacked with Dragon and Flying-types. Thus the damage output depends more on this rather than the raw Pokémon type.

Understanding the Pokémon GO Type Chart

In Pokémon GO, every Pokémon type shares one of these relations with other types. Those are:

  • Strong Against: Pokémon listed here are strong and will deal increased damage to your opponent. The Super Effective type.
  • Weak Against: Pokémon listed here will deal less damage to the enemy. The Not Very Effective type.
  • Resistance: Listed as a resist in the list. Taking attacks of this type do much less damage.
  • Vulnerable: Watch out for these types will deal increased damage to your Pokémon! These are your type’s weaknesses.
