How to Read the Chart for Dual Types

 Dual types can also be read from the main chart, it is a bit more complicated, but surprisingly fast and effective once you get the hang of it.

 

Look at both your pokemon types in the chart.

All weaknesses from both types (coming from the left)

apply to the pokemon if it is not "cancelled" by

a resistance on the other type.

 

Same is true for resistances, all resistances applies

to the pokemon if it has one on either type, if its not "cancelled" by a weakness from the other type.

 

Super effective attacks works more simplistic. All super effective attacks (to the right) applies if it has an attack of that type (+60% more dmg). If it is super effective against something on both its types, they do not stack or multiply, this only happens when the defending pokemon has a weakness to that type on both its types.

 

Single type pokemon never receive any "double" amount of damage or resistance because only one type is in play. 

Azumarill

Water & Fairy

Weak to (+60% dmg)

Grass, Electric & Poison

Strong against (+60% dmg)

Fire, Ground, Rock, Fighting, Dragon & Dark

Resists

Fire, Water, Ice, Dark, Fighting & Bug (38% less dmg)

Dragon (immune) (61% less dmg)

Altaria

Flying & Dragon

Double Resistance

If you have a resistance type in common on both your types, you will have a double resistance against that type and take 61% less dmg(same as for immunity) Look for the same color on the resistance tabs with the shields.

 

 

Strong against (+60% dmg)

Grass, Fighting, Bug & Dragon

Weak to (+60% dmg)

 Rock, Dragon, Fairy

Double Weak to Ice (+156 dmg)

Resists

Grass, Fighting, Bug, Fire, Water (38% less dmg)

Ground(immune) (61% less dmg)

Double Resist Grass (61% less dmg)

Gengar

Ghost & Poison

Double Weakness

If there is one type that both your types are weak to, you will have a "double weakness" to that type and take 156% more dmg. Look for the same colors to the left on both your types. 

 

Strong against (+60% dmg)

Grass, Fairy, Ghost & Phychic

Weak to (+60% dmg)

 Phychic, Ground, Ghost, Dark

 

Triple Resistance

If the resistances in common on both your types are one resistance and one immunity, you will have a "triple resistance" and take 76% less dmg. (This is quite uncommon)

Resists

Fairy & Grass (38% less dmg)

Normal (immune) (61% less dmg)

Double Resist Poison & Bug (61% less dmg)

Triple Resist Fighting (76% less dmg)

Zapdos

Flying & Electric

Contradictive effects

As mentioned above, if a pokemon is weak to a specific type on one type, but resist it on the other type, they cancel each other out and deal neutral damage. Immunity counts twice and can cancel out a weakness, and still count as a normal resistance after that.

Strong against (+60% dmg)

Grass, Fighting, Bug, Water& Flying

Weak to (+60% dmg)

Rock & Ice

 

Summary Dual Type Interpretation

Look at your two types, all its super effective against is to the right.  All it's weak to is to the left. Add together the resistances underneath each type. Lastly cancel out any weaknesses that a resistance or immunity on the other type can compensate for. Done!

 

 

 

 

Resists

Ground, Grass, Fighting, Bug, Flying & Steel (38% less dmg)

 

How to use the Chart During Battle

Preparation: Make sure you know your three pokemons weaknesses and strengths, possibly write it down. If you haven't learned the chart by heart yet, print the (PDF-version) or have it on another screen when you go into battle.

During Battle: What pokemon am I up against? Have a glance at the chart and see if your pokemon is a good counter, possible make a switch.

 

Do you have a pokemon or a specific move that is strong against it in your arsenal? As the battle goes on, have a glance at the chart each time you face a new pokemon.
