One of the most crucial parts of being a top trainer is learning and memorizing the Pokémon type chart. If you’re just starting out with the series or want to make sure of a crucial detail before a major battle, we’ve got you covered. After all, it’s nearly hard to memorize the weaknesses and resistances of all 898 Pokémon, so it’s always a good idea to double-check.

It is a Pokémon’s type that determines its relative strength and weakness while facing other Pokémon. If you’re stronger, your attacks will inflict a lot of damage, but if you’re weaker, your attacks won’t do much. Knowing the 18 Pokémon types is crucial for maximizing damage as, in some cases, your attack will have no impact at all.
Knowing the Pokémon type chart is crucial whether you’re competing in a rated match of Pokémon Sword and Shield, using one of the top Pokémon in Pokémon GO, or flying one of the Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl.
The three basic structures provide the most intuitive entry point. Chimchar (Fire), Turtwig (Grass), and Piplup (Water) are the starter Pokémon in Pokémon: Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. While fire is devastating to grass, water is as effective against flames. The results are Chimchar on top, Turtwig in second, and Piplup in third. It’s just like the circle of life, but with Pokémon.

For quite some time now, the Pokémon type chart has stayed largely unchanged. However, certain spin-off games in the Pokémon universe have taken a different approach. For instance, Pokémon GO somewhat modifies the established order of type advantages and disadvantages.
Let’s take a look at the original Pokémon type chart from the core games before moving on to Pokémon GO.
Pokémon Type Chart
Types of Pokémon in the main series games, such as Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum and HeartGold and SoulSilver, follow these guidelines.
Against types you have a lot of success against, your attacks will deal 2x the normal amount of damage, while attacks against types you struggle with will only deal half as much.
It should come as no surprise that attacks with the “no effect” label have no effect at all on the target Pokémon. However, if you chance to strike a Pokémon that is vulnerable to your attack on two fronts, you will cause four times as much damage.
This Pokémon Sword and Shield type chart also apply to the downloadable content for Pokémon: Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra. The Pokémon of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are re-releases of the same games from Generation 4, yet they still use the modern type system.
