Understanding Pokemon Pokemon Scarlet and Violet type interactions can be complicated, but luckily you can break it down type by type to learn the basics. Here’s everything you need to know about all type strengths and weaknesses in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
Pokemon Type Effectiveness Chart
This chart has every weakness and resistance laid out for each type, courtesy of Bulbapedia.
Here’s what the numbers mean:
- 1x is normally effective
- 2x is super effective
- 1/2x is not very effective
- 0x is immune
Looking at an individual type column tells you how effective every type is against it, while looking at an individual type row tells you how effective it is against every type. In other words, if you see lots red in a column or lots of green in a row, it indicates the type is overall pretty strong. It takes some getting used to, so here are a few examples to get you in the right frame of mind:
Looking at the Dragon Row (third from the bottom) you can see it’s not very effective against Steel, super effective against Dragon, and doesn’t affect Fairy.
Looking at the Flying Column (third from the left) you can see it resists Fighting, Grass, and Bug, it’s weak to Rock, Electric, and Ice, and immune to Ground.
That’s everything we have on the strengths and weaknesses of every type from Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Check out some of our other Pokemon Scarlet and Violet content like where to find False Swipe and Curry Powder and how to evolve Bisharp.
