View Full Version : Weakness/resistance chart

I can't remember weakness and resistances except the more common ones. And I can never remember them for steel. So I think having the chart on the site, maybe added to game mechanics, can be helpful.

True. It would be very helpful to newbie Pokemon trainers.

Aye, agreed. I can never remember all of the resistances for Fighting, Poison, and Bug.

Hi Xtra!

Well most people know the weakness and resistence to each type. It is kind of hard to remember after a while. If you have type questions you can ask me. Steel Pokemon are super effective against ice and rock. They aren't affected by poison. They are weak against fighting, fire, and ground. In my opinion, Metagross is the best. He is only weak against fire and ground but he can counter them.

Oy, again...

There was recently a huge discussion/debate about this, here:


Joe said he wasn't going to put the chart up because you could get one in the instruction booklet that comes with your game, and there's no need for it on the site.

Um...there hasn't been one in the instruction booklet since the original R/B/Y booklet.
