Pokemon Go - Strengths and Weaknesses Type Chart
Make the most out of Pokemon Go's battles with our crucial crib sheet.
Longtime Pokemon players know that mastering any Pokemon game comes down to understanding the many different Pokemon Types. And, as in previous games in the series, Pokemon Go presents its own slightly-tweaked take on the standard Type chart. Some of the differences between Go and other Pokemon games were fairly hard to perceive even to series veterans, but owing to the data-mining efforts by Reddit user zehipp0 and a data dump over on Github, players now have a full chart detailing all of the strengths, weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and resistances within Pokemon Go.
Note: unlike in other Pokemon games, Pokemon Go's battle system doesn't allow for immunities. In previous titles, Pokemon of the Ground type were immune to Electric, while Flying types were immune to Ground, so on and so forth. No such immunities exist in Pokemon Go.
