However, there are a lot of types in the game, and there are some who have dual types as well which can either give them more weaknesses, or even better resistances. When fighting an opponent, you can check your moves to see if they are effective or not. When choosing damage dealing moves, you can either have the following effects:

  • Super Effective – Your moves deal 2x Damage
  • Not Very Effective – Your moves deal 0.5x Damage
  • Super Effective (Double) – Deals x4 Damage (If opponent has two types that are weak to your attack)
  • Immunity – Your moves have no effect

    By learning your type match ups, you will be able to create a balanced team that can help cover each other’s weaknesses. Moves of different types can also be learned in the game that can help you out. Also, you can get bonuses for using moves if its type is the same as your partner’s type as well.
