Pokemon Type Strengths and Weaknesses

A Pokemon can be strong, vulnerable or weak against certain types of attacks. Header explanations are as follows: Strong = Damage x 0.5; Weak = Damage x 2; Immune = Damage x 0. Attack types that are not listed deal normal amount of damage to that particular Pokemon.

Below is a table with all the different types of Pokemon and their strengths and weaknesses. We also have an advanced search facility in our Pokedex which will allow you to search for Pokemon based on many parameters, such as strengths and weaknesses. Also, in our Pokedex are strengths and weakness for every individual Pokemon, just go to the page for the Pokemon you are interested in for full details... For example, Bulbasaur.

What about Mega Charizard X. It is of three types, Fire, Flying and Dragon. In the pokedex it is written only fire and dragon but in the episode Mega Evolution Special I, Alain's mega charizard X is able to fly.

I defeated cynthia's garchomp with my gabite and when I won gabite evolved into garchomp lol.
Also I defeat flint's whole team with my infernape.
the hardest elite four member for me to beat was bertha.
My Sinnoh team:
Infernape
Garchomp
Luxray
Staraptor
Houndour
Giratina
Tell me what you think=)
