Just like other Pokémon games, Pokémon Violet and Scarlet uses a type system, giving each Pokémon one or two elemental types, with their own strengths and weaknesses. Our Pokémon Violet and Scarlet type guide will table out the type advantages so you don’t have to memorize how things flow.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet type chart — strengths and weaknesses, explained
Each Pokémon has its own set of strengths and weaknesses. Attacks that are “ super effective ” (i.e. strong) against a certain type will deal double damage, while attacks that are “ not very effective ” (i.e. weak) against a type will deal half the damage.
Memorizing type advantages can be simple. Water-type moves are strong against the fire-type Charmander, for example. Rock- and ground-type moves are also strong against Charmander. This is fairly easy to remember, as you can use water, rocks, or dirt to put out a fire. However, some of the types get more confusing. Steel- and poison-type moves are strong against fairy-type Pokémon, as knights in armor and poisoned fruit are powerful in fairy tales. Sheesh.
Things get even more complex when a Pokémon has two types. Charizard, which is both fire- and flying-type, has different weaknesses than Charmander. Not only is it weak to water- and rock-type moves, but it’s also weak to electric-type moves. However, its fire-typing prevents it from taking extra damage from ice-type moves (as flying-types usually do). It’s flying-typing also gives it complete immunity against ground-type moves. Nice.
Strengths and weaknesses also aren’t necessarily just opposites of each other. Though fire-type move deal less damage to water-type Pokémon and water-type moves do doubled damage against fire-type Pokémon, this isn’t the case with every type. For example, fighting-type moves are strong against normal-types, but normal-types just do regular damage against fighting-types, rather than reduced damage.
Notably, in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet , you can change a Pokémon’s type in battle by Terastilizing . All Pokémon can Terastilize into one type, changing its typing completely. For example, if a Charizard (typically fire/flying) Terastilizes into a fire-type, it will lose its flying-typing, making it also lose its vulnerability to electric-type moves. You can even have Pokémon that Terastilize into completely different types — a Charizard, for instance, that Terastilizes into a dragon- or water-type. It’s a radical change to the Pokémon type chart for Scarlet and Violet .
However, there are a few things to keep in mind when battling Pokémon in Tera Raids. You should remember to bring a Pokémon who’s strong against the opponent’s tera type, but isn’t weak against its usual typing. Raid Pokémon still retain their original movesets, so you’ll need to look out for moves that counter your Pokémon’s type. For example, if you face off against a dragon Tera Type Charizard, don’t bring any ice-type Pokémon. Yes, ice-type moves are super effective against the dragon Tera Type, but the Charizard will still know plenty of fire-type moves, which will melt down your ice-type Pokémon in an instant.
Knowing what a Pokémon’s strengths and weaknesses are is an important aspect of battling. To do the most damage you can, you should make sure that your Pokémon’s moves are strong against what it’s battling.
Memorizing all of it can get confusing. Here’s a chart to help you out.

Dual-type weaknesses and resistances explained
The Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Type Chart will help you work our strengths, weaknesses and resistances for all the Pokemon types you encounter in the world of Paldea. Terastallization can throw a spanner in the works, admittedly, but that won't stop these principles applying, as long as you can still know what types you're up against. With that in mind, our full Scarlet and Violet Pokemon Type Chart will help you learn strengths and weaknesses to take you through the whole game.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Type Chart
Every Pokemon Type has strengths and weaknesses. Super effective attacks will cause double the damage, while not very effective attacks will only deal half the damage. Sometimes a type is completely immune to the attacks of another type, so that's also worth bearing in mind too. For example, Ground Type attacks are completely ineffective against Flying Type Pokemon.
If a Pokemon has dual types - like Charizard with its combo Fire / Flying Type - then it gets much more complicated. It doesn't quite take on the strengths and weaknesses of both types if they would cancel each other out.
You can find the full Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Type Chart below, and then individual breakdowns of each Type further down the page.

If you're wondering about the weaknesses, resistances and strengths of dual-types, it's a little tricky. Generally though, weaknesses and resistances cancel each other out, whereas two same weaknesses will stack. For example, a Ground/Fire type will take 4x the damage from Water attacks. Meanwhile, a Normal/Flying type will take a standard amount of damage from Fighting attacks, as it's both weak AND resistant to them. And of course, there's (currently) no such thing as Dual-type attacks, so you don't need to worry about that.

Ghost Type Weaknesses in Scarlet and Violet
Ghost type Pokémon are one of the rarest types, being only 37 of the over 1,000 Pokémon, or about double that if you count alternate forms. It’s unsurprising that, when you run into them, it can be hard to remember Ghost type weaknesses in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet , but we are here to break it down for you.
Pure Ghost Type Pokémon Only Have Two Weaknesses in Scarlet and Violet
- Ghost type moves (That’s right — the Ghost type is weak to itself.)
- Dark type moves
However, depending on what cross-type you run into, there may be more or fewer weaknesses on that list, since each cross-type adds its own weaknesses and resistances.
For example, Ghastly and its evolutions are all Poison/Ghost types, meaning they take extra damage from Ground and Psychic as well as Ghost’s usual weaknesses.
Since there aren’t many common Ghost types, it’s easy to point to two common exceptions. Dark/Ghost type Sableye isn’t weak to Dark or Ghost attacks, with its only weakness being Fairy type. Ghost/Fairy type Mimikyu isn’t weak to Dark type moves, leaving its only weaknesses as Ghost and Steel type attacks.
With all this in mind, it’s probably best to bring a Dark type to exploit weaknesses and defeat a Ghost type Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet , and it’s less good to bring a Ghost type, since you’ll be hit with super-effective moves. Finally, don’t bring your Psychic, Normal, or Fighting types into battle against Ghost Pokémon, since Ghost types are super-effective against Psychic types and are immune to Normal and Fighting type attacks.

All Ghost Pokémon Weaknesses and Counters in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Fight fire with fire!
The Ghost Type is a strong offensive Typing in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, as many Types won't resist Ghost attacks. It will also deal super effective damage to both Psychic and other Ghost Types. While there aren't many Ghost Type attacks, most are quite powerful with a high Base Power. The Gym Leader Ryme uses Ghost Type Pokémon in a Double Battle format, and knowing how to deal with them will prove useful for the fight. These are the weaknesses of the Ghost Type and how to counter them in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet.
Best Pokémon Types to Counter Ghost Type Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Ghost Types are weak to Dark and Ghost Type attacks and are immune to Fighting and Normal Type attacks. Ghost does half damage against Dark Types, making the best counter to Ghost Types either Dark Types that won't take much damage or Normal Types that are immune to Ghost moves entirely. Many Ghost Pokémon will have Fighting Type moves to counter Normal and Dark Types as well, but a few Pokémon can get around this.
Lokix is a Bug/Dark Type making it take reduced damage from Ghost moves and not take super effective damage from Fighting moves. Some more good counters are the Normal/Flying Type Pokémon like Squawkabilly and Staraptor that will be immune to Ghost attacks without taking too much damage from Fighting moves.
Related: All Fighting Pokémon Weakness and Counters in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
All Ghost Type Pokémon Strengths in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet
Ghost is super effective against Ghost and Psychic Type Pokémon and usually possesses Fighting and Fairy moves. Psychic Type Pokémon will tend to learn Ghost and Dark moves themselves to counter the Ghost Types that are super effective against them. Because so few Types resist Ghost attacks, it is very strong offensively and can deal a lot of damage without relying on super-effective attacks.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: 8 Best Ghost-Types
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet have one of the coolest batches of Ghost-types we've ever seen. But don't take our blurb for it - read our list.
Ghost-types are prevalent in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet 's Paldea region. The in-game day-and-night system churns at a reasonable enough pace to ensure that most players should have the chance to go hunting for some after dusk at least once per session they spend parked in front of their Switch. Some can even be found by day.

With an ample number of ghostly possibilities at your disposal, who among them are the best of the bunch? We're looking at stats, strategies, and a heaping dash of 'wow, this one looks rad' to determine our answers. Just remember, our first iteration of this list is being written prior to any real competitive play, so our opinions will almost assuredly shift in the future.
Stats-wise, Houndstone is, unfortunately, not the greatest. And yet, it's been relegated to the highest competitive tier, 'Uber', on popular competitive Pokemon site Smogon . How did that happen? And why is Houndstone dead (ha) last in our list if so?
It's all about Houndstone's signature move, Last Respects . It starts at a mere 50 power, but improves by another 50 for every downed teammate. With the rest of the party fallen, you're dishing out 300 damage with this monstrous strike. Granted, you could have most of your party knocked out in-game, and go around slaying fiends with your dog? Seems kind of suboptimal outside of multiplayer, though.
We have so much less to write about Gengar by comparison. It's a steady old standby, a faithful first-gen ghost we'd almost call rock-solid if it weren't, in fact, the exact opposite. Gengar's stats are well-proportioned, with a 130 Special Attack positioning it well to take advantage of its Ghost/Poison dual typing.
For decades, players have harped on about move sets like Shadow Ball, Nasty Plot, and Substitute (with a fourth ranging from Focus Blast for Fighting coverage to Sludge Bomb for more direct Poison prowess). If you want a classically designed Ghost Pokemon in Scarlet & Violet with very few downsides and a tried-and-true approach, Gengar's your ghost boy. If you'd rather stack your team with new designs of equal excellence, we've got you covered .
Ceruledge quickly became a fan favorite upon its reveal alongside Armarouge . The duo is version-exclusive evolutions of Charcadet, with the Ghost/Fire Ceruledge a more physical attacker to the Psychic/Fire Armarouge's special attack range. At first blush, a Ghost-type that relies so heavily on its Attack stat sounds like a dangerous combination, and while Ceruledge isn't the best Ghost representative in Paldea, it still manages to impress.
Hook yours up with Phantom Force for good Same Type Attack Bonus. Poison Jab is handy if you lack Poison-type coverage on your team. Ceruledge's signature move, Bitter Blade , has 90 attack power and restores Ceruledge's HP by 50 percent of the damage dealt. It's the perfect complement if you can find one of these blue boos with the Weak Armor ability, which lowers Defense one stage but elevates Speed by two every time it's hit.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet have already confirmed the nascent Gen 9 as one of the greatest for Ghost-types in the history of the series. The fact that there are four more Ghosts we rank higher than the fabulous Gholdengo , three of whom are just as new, seals the deal.
Related: Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: How To Get Armarouge And Ceruledge
Gholdengo's ability, Good as Gold , prevents it from being affected by status conditions. Not a single harmful hit gets to this rodeo gold-rusher. That alone puts it in a defensive league of its own, albeit one without substantial defensive stats . (They're pretty good, though.) A 133 Special Attack is terrific for a 'regular' Pokemon, however, and the signature move Make It Rain has 120 base power as a special-based Steel move . The only glass-half-empty here is that it lowers Gholdengo's Special Attack by one stage.
If you chose Fuecoco at the beginning of Scarlet or Violet, you really don't need to raise a Ceruledge unless you're in love with its design. Skeledirge is Fire/Ghost, after all, and while its stat spread is quite different, its capabilities are plentiful.
Ideally, you'll have a Quiet Skeledirge for a boost to Special Attack at the expense of Speed, since Speed is easily Skeledirge's worst aspect, anyway. Even online, and surely in the single-player, you may want to keep two Fire-type moves on Skelly rather than the conventional approach of spreading things out with just the one. Torch Song has 80 base power but ramps up Skeledirge's Special Attack; using that boost on Overheat , which lowers it, can create a nice tempo.
Fighting/Ghost-type Annihilape really came out of left field, didn't it? Mankey and its evolution, Primeape, have existed since the days of Red & Blue. Since then, so many more monkey-likes have appeared that we never would have guessed Primeape would get a new evolution in the year 2022.
But here we are, and Annihilape delivers. 535 base stats total might not sound like much relative to real powerhouses, but the spread is solid. The only weak stat here is Special Attack, so it can take a few hits while handing out (or palming out?) some knockout blows via high Attack. The move you must use 20 times as a Primeape in order to trigger the evolution, Rage Fist , can safely get replaced with a higher-power Ghost attack... except in competitive matches.
The terror of Galar is back for another round as one of the best Ghost-types two generations running. Dragapult has been one of Sword & Shield's most stalwart regulars in online challenges and big-time tournaments. The Dragon/Ghost has a blazing-fast 142 Speed and 120 Attack to make it matter. Even so, its 100 Special Attack can be increased to 150 (!) with the Choice Specs item, which limits it to the first move it uses.
That's less disabling than it sounds. Online, you'll be switching in and out often. Draco Meteor is simply too good to pass up, and as it's special-based, you'll want those Choice Specs to shine. Shadow Ball is your Ghost-based move. Dragapult has a nice range of learnable moves; Smogon's most popular set has often suggested one or two out of Hydro Pump, Flamethrower, and Thunder, depending on your team's needs.
1 Flutter Mane
Flutter Mane is a menace, already banned to Uber status in Smogon's competitive discourse.
And unlike Houndstone, that doesn't boil down to an ability. It's because of everything this Pokemon represents. Its stats are unlike anything we've seen before; three straight stats, HP, Attack, and Defense, are all miserably low 55. But the other three, Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed, make up for it at 135 apiece . We're talking about something that can rush, slay, and endure for the long run.
But Flutter Mane has an ace up its sleeve, too. Protosynthesis increases Flutter Mane's Special Attack automatically in harsh sunlight. With Sunny Day set up, 135 becomes just north of 200 , and Flutter Mane is, quite suddenly, the Grim Reaper incarnate.

What are Ghost-type’s weaknesses in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet?
What moves should you use against them?
- November 19, 2022
- Guides Pokemon Scarlet and Violet
Screenshot by Gamepur
There are multiple Ghost-type Pokémon through the Paldea region, and you can expect to battle against a lot of them in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Ghost-types can be challenging to battle against because they only have a handful of weaknesses, but knowing what those are can prepare you to achieve victory against them. Here’s what you need to know about Ghost-type weaknesses in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
All Ghost-type weaknesses in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
A standard Ghost-type is only weak against two types of Pokémon moves: other Ghost-types, and Dark-types. These are the best options against a Ghost-type in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. A Pokémon does not need to be a Ghost or a Dark-type to use them. You should be able to see what type of attacks your Pokémon has when you click the summary and look through their moves.
Related : How to change a Pokémon’s Tera type in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
When battling against Ghost-types, it’s important to note that they are immune to Normal and Fighting-type attacks and can resist Poison and Bug-type moves. You want to avoid using any Normal or Fighting-type attack against them as it doesn’t harm them at all, and they take half damage from any Poison or Bug-type moves.
Ghost-type Pokémon frequently appear in the Paldea region, so having a team that can counter them will be a good choice. If you’re feeling risky, another Ghost-type Pokémon are perfect to take them down, but they also have the same strengths and weaknesses, so a Dark-type might be better suited for you. Pokémon that are resistant to Ghost-type attacks are only going to be Dark-type Pokémon, so these will remain to be your best option when attempting to battle any Ghost-type Pokémon or a Pokémon that frequently uses Ghost-type moves in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

All Ghost-Type weaknesses in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet
Ghost-Types are strong, but they have two big weaknesses
Provided by Michael Czar. Brambleghast, in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.
For players having issues against Ghost-Type Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet, here are their weaknesses and some great Pokémon to use against them. Ghost-Types have always been tricky to defeat, but using the right types makes all the difference.
Ghost-Types always prove useful in recent generations thanks to their generally high Special stats. It’s always good to have at least one Ghost-Type Pokémon in your party, especially since they take no damage from Normal and Fighting-Types, two very common types in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. But, that also makes them tricky to beat. The best way to go about defeating Ghost-Type Pokémon is with Dark-Type Pokémon or moves. Thankfully, moves like Bite and Crunch are Dark-Type moves that are pretty common across lots of Pokémon.
But, if you have a Ghost-Type of your own with either very high Defense or Speed, Ghost-Types are weak to other Ghost-Types. In a Ghost versus Ghost duel, the one who attacks first usually wins, since they’re weak to each other. In that case, going for super strong moves like Shadow Ball or Shadow Claw can even one-shot Ghost-Types of a similar level. Do be careful though, as they might also know powerful Dark-Type moves as well.

Here is a short list of Pokémon in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet that are very useful against Ghost-Types.
As a Ghost/Fairy Pokémon, Mimikyu can deal a lot of damage to other Ghost-Types. Plus, with its type combination, it doesn’t take double damage against Dark-Type Pokémon. Last but not least, its ability Disguise allows it to be a great swap into Ghost-Types if you don’t have it first in your party.
This one is more of a defensive pick but can still deal great damage against Ghost-Types. As a Dark/Ghost-Type combination, it takes regular damage from both Ghost and Dark-Type moves. Its only true weakness is Fairy-Type moves, meaning it can deal double damage to its Ghost-Type brethren while taking less back.
Last but not least, Zoroark is a pure Dark-Type Pokémon, meaning it takes half damage from Ghost-Type moves while dishing double back. Thanks to its high Speed and Special Attack stats, it will most likely one-shot Ghost-Types of an equal level. Plus, for competitive players, its ability Illusion allows it to disguise itself as the last non-fainted Pokémon in your party. That only gets revealed when it takes damage from another creature. This means that you can surprise both trainers and online players with strong Dark-Type moves without them expecting it.

Pokemon Scarlet & Violet: How to Evolve Chingling into Chimecho
Chingling and Chimecho are compatible with Pokemon Scarlet & Violet thanks to the Teal Mask DLC, so here's how to catch them.
Where to find chingling (& how to evolve it), where to find chimecho in the wild, is chimecho worth using.
Psychic-type Pokemon are renowned for their amazing Special Attack, and there's no shortage of them in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet . In fact, Psychic Pokemon were a force to be reckoned with back in the first generation of Pokemon. However, just because a Pokemon has the Psychic-typing doesn't mean their strengths lie in battle.
Chimecho was a Gen 3 Pokemon that received a pre-evolution in Gen 4. While it could be caught in Legends: Arceus , it failed to make an appearance in Scarlet/Violet , which was released the same year. Thanks to Teal Mask, the first part of Scarlet/Violet 's expansion pass, Chimecho and its pre-evolved form, Chingling, are now accessible in Gen 9.

Chingling can be caught along the Infernal Pass or at Crystal Pool . It also can be spotted on Oni Mountain , but the Infernal Pass and Crystal Pool are the preferred habitats for hunting down Chingling. The Bell Pokemon is one of the more-common Pokemon, so trainers should have no issues finding one.
Players can increase the spawn rate of Chingling by making a sandwich with the "Encounter Power: Psychic" Meal Power. Noodles and Vinegar are good fillings and condiments respectively for Psychic-type Meal Powers.
If trainers have not yet completed "The Way Home" main quest, Chingling will be around level 24 . If they have completed it, then Chingling's level will be elevated to level 65 . It shouldn't be too difficult to catch, but players may want to bring Great Balls or Dusk Balls just in case a Quick Ball fails.
Another way to get Chingling is to look for 1/3-star Tera Raids in Kitakami . Chinglings in Raids might have a different Tera-typing from their regular Typing. For example, it's possible to find a 1-star Raid with a Dragon Tera-type Chingling. This negates its weakness to Dark and Bug-type moves, but it gains a newfound weakness to Dragon, Fairy, and Ice-type moves while Terastallized.
To evolve Chingling into Chimecho, trainers need to have high Friendship with Chingling , then level it up at night to initiate the evolution. It's extremely easy to raise Friendship in Scarlet/Violet , but here are some specific methods:
- Use Scarlet/Violet 's Let's Go! feature, and have Chingling "walk" outside its Poke Ball to collect items.
- Make sandwiches and wash Chingling during Picnics. Two 3-star rank Sandwiches should be enough to raise Chingling's Friendship to "two hearts."

There's a Fixed Spawn Chimecho on Infernal Pass , and they'll sometimes appear at Crystal Pool . Unlike Chingling, Chimecho is considered an "uncommon" spawn, meaning it might take longer for trainers to find a Chimecho than they would a Chingling.
Another way of getting Chimecho is to battle one in a 4-star Raid . These Raids start appearing around Paldea and Kitakami when trainers have seven Gym Badges . Also, keep in mind that Chimecho only appears in the Tera Dens in Kitakami only . They won't spawn in the Raids around Paldea.
In short: Chimecho works better as a Support than it does as a Battler. It's not a bad Pokemon, but there are better Psychic-types out there. The best way to make use of Chimecho is to use it in double battles, which Scarlet/Violet is lacking in its base game. Fortunately, Indigo Disk seems to have double battles at the new Blueberry League.
Here are Chimecho's base stats and type effectiveness:
* Chimecho's Ability, Levitate , gives it an immunity to all Ground-type moves. However, if Chimecho is fighting a Pokemon with the Moldbreaker Ability, or if it's hit with a move like Smack Down , its Ability will be nullified in battle .
Chimecho's best nature is Calm (+Sp.Def, -Attk) , but trainer can also try running a Modest (+Sp.Attk, -Attk) Nature instead. Since its better for support, set up a moveset that has Recover or Trick Room . Recover is good for obvious reasons, but Trick Room will allow Chimecho to attack first for five turns. Psychic is good for offense, and trainers can set up Shadow Ball or Dazzling Gleam for its last move if they want Chimecho to have two moves for offense. Otherwise, Thunder Wave is a good option, as it inflicts paralysis on most Pokemon.
Pokemon Scarlet & Violet are available for Nintendo Switch.
Dark-Type Pokémon's Weaknesses, Explained
The Dark typing has emerged as one of the most popular of the 18 Pokémon types in recent generations - but it does still have its major weaknesses.
Pokémon is one of the most popular franchises of all time, spanning video games, anime and beyond as it continues to reach a global audience. To achieve these once-unfathomable levels of success, Pokémon has had to continually deliver on fresh additions for over twenty years now, and the franchise now sits at nine generations and over 1000 species on its roster. Every species is different in some way, from stats and design, to personality and types.
What started as 15 types to cover the first 151 Pokémon now stands at 18 across the 1000+ species, as Steel, Dark and Fairy have since joined the franchise to help in maintaining a balanced order within the roster. Dark joined in Gen II alongside Steel, as a necessary counter to some formidable types, but despite it still being very prominent in Pokémon today, it does have some weaknesses that players and trainers alike have to be wary of.

The Dark Typing
The Dark typing was introduced in Gen II as a much-needed counter for Psychic-type Pokémon. The Psychic type was left unchecked and free to run riot over the landscape of Gen I Pokémon , with limited rosters and offensive moves available for its two supposed counters, Ghost and Bug. The Dark typing arrived as a remedy for this, as Bite and Crunch would become popular Dark-type moves that were accessible to a whole host of species across all types. Suddenly, counters for Psychic Pokémon could lie anywhere and everywhere, ending its era of dominance. But the Dark typing's super-effective strengths don't stop there, as they are also great in matchups against Ghost-type Pokémon.
From a defensive perspective, Dark types are completely immune to Psychic-type moves, while they resist Dark and Ghost moves. Dark has proven itself to be a perfectly capable of type in the years and generations since its introduction, but there are still some glaring Dark type weaknesses .
There are three types that have a super-effective advantage over Dark Pokémon - Fighting, Bug and Fairy. None of these are especially formidable types by themselves, but as a secondary typing, these moves always have Dark-type Pokémon countered to some degree.
Most physical attackers will have access to at least some kind of Fighting-type offensive, while the same can often be said about special attackers and Fairy. Dark types are formidable but need to be wary of moves from these types at all times.
RELATED: Pokémon: The Best Type Of Each Generation, Explained
The Fighting typing's super-effective advantage over Dark types is easy enough to explain and justify . A martial arts-inspired typing having an advantage in a face-off against the forces of evil makes sense in transitioning over from logic to lore within the world of Pokémon .
Fighting is a common secondary typing, found in most physically-imposing Pokémon, either by actual typing or represented in the movepool. As such, it is one of the biggest threats as a Dark type weakness.
Best Fighting-Type Moves
Dark types have to be wary of all Fighting-type offensive moves, but there are some that stand out above the rest. These moves tend to be all about all-out offense, so can often come with drawbacks in loss of HP or other stats.
Despite the obvious and ultimately necessary downsides to many of these powerful Fighting-type moves , which keep them fair and balanced, their power output is still impressive. When faced with situations that pit them against these moves, Dark-type Pokémon with even the slightest bit of defensive fragility need to be withdrawn or encouraged to work on evasion as quickly as possible.
Notable Strong Fighting Types
For all of their impressive physical offense, Fighting types do generally have glaring weaknesses that can put many players and trainers off from having them on their team. Psychic, Flying and Fairy Pokémon can reduce them down to size, but some of these Fighting types continue to be formidable and feared, even when faced with adversity and serious disadvantage.
The Fighting type roster was thin back in Gen I, but Machamp, Hitmonchan, Hitmonlee, Poliwrath and Primeape held down the fort until others could join in later generations. Machamp represented the typing at its core with a physical and muscular build, while Lucario, Infernape and Annihilape are representatives of the Fighting type's evolution over the years.

Bug-type Pokémon are easily dismissed due to their small size and limited movepool, but as a typing, it has some impressive matchups and advantages. Bug-type moves are super-effective against not only Grass and Psychic Pokémon, but Dark types as well.
Trying to figure out logic and justification for type interactions isn't always easy in the world of Pokémon , and Bug's advantage over Dark is a prime example of this lack of clarity. Whether it has something to do with bugs having night vision, them coming out at night, or even playing into the idea of fear and psychological weakness - Bug Pokémon hold that advantage as a major Dark type weakness, no matter the ambiguity and confusion.
Best Bug-Type Moves
Despite Bug types being a rare counter to Psychic Pokémon back in Gen I, they never really had the respect that they now have. Bug-type moves aren't always preferred for those versatile species that like to have coverage across multiple types, but there are Bug-type moves that offer significant power output or strategic usefulness.
Pin Missile, X-Scissor and Megahorn are the most notable in terms of pure power. However, with U-Turn allowing trainers to switch out strategically in the heat of tough battles, and with Pollen Puff doubling up as a healing move, there is a great deal of versatility to the Bug typing. These moves are ultimately able to exploit the Dark type weakness.
Notable Strong Bug Types
Bug-type moves may not always be up there among Pokémon fans' absolute favorites, but there are some powerful species across all generations that represent the typing. Caterpie, Weedle and Paras are Gen I examples of smaller Bug types that bring the overall world of Pokémon to life, but the typing has since been showcased through legendaries, Ultra Beasts and other strong Pokémon.
- Mega Beedrill
- Slither Wing
Beedrill, Pinsir, Scizor and Heracross have received Mega Evolutions, while Volcarona, Genesect, Buzzwole, Pheromosa and Slither Wing are all very different examples of Bug types with gravitas, presence and general significance in lore. Bug types deserve to be seen as a fascinating type, as the fact that they hold an advantage over dangerous Dark types, should automatically grant them respect as formidable Pokémon.
RELATED: Pokémon Keeps Trying To Make A Dark Charizard Happen
While the Steel and Dark types were introduced to Pokémon as early as Gen II, fans were left waiting for an additional typing until Gen VI. The Unova region introduced the Fairy typing to fans and players, as a much-needed counter for Dragon types, and a super-effective advantage for Poison Pokémon.
Fairy's other advantages over Fighting and Dark types has made it a prominent typing on the competitive scene , even if a secondary typing is often preferred to a sole Fairy type. The reasoning behind Fairy being a Dark type weakness is easy to figure out, as Fairy's magical properties are deemed too pure for the general evil of Dark types.
Best Fairy-Type Moves
Fairy Pokémon may be fortunate to have defensive immunity to the formidable Dragon typing, but when the roles are reversed, Fairy types do have some considerable firepower of their own. Fairy-type moves often honor the typing's magical influences by specializing in Special Attack, but this doesn't necessarily apply to every powerful Fairy-type move.
Disarming Voice and Draining Kiss may not be too impressive in terms of raw power, but their respective quirks of never missing and regaining health cannot be overlooked. There are still powerful Fairy-type moves however, as Dazzling Gleam, Play Rough and Moonblast can all be found on movesets in some of the toughest teams on the competitive scene.
Notable Strong Fairy Types
Fairy-type Pokémon may come across as these magical and pure creatures, but they should never be underestimated. In fact, in the short time since its Gen VI introduction, the Fairy typing has quickly made its way to Legendary, Mythical and now Paradox Pokémon . The Fairy typing adds a magical aura to these magnificent magical Pokémon, and automatically adds some extra presence and lore to their character.
- Flutter Mane
Sylveon will always be remembered as one of the very first Fairy-type Pokémon, and it still remains a standard-bearer for the type. Legendary Fairy types Zacian and Xerneas have recently been joined by Fezandipiti in Scarlet & Violet's Teal Mask DLC, but non-Legendary species from Grimmsnarl to Togekiss, deserve to be recognized among the best that this mysterious type has to offer.
Dark types, including Grimmsnarl itself who happens to also be part Dark type, have to be wary of these powerful Fairy Pokémon and their moves, as Fairy remains a major Dark type weakness.
A deep dive into pokemon's most terrifying creature.
Oh, sure, it may look cute on the outside ...
- The article highlights Mimikyu as the scariest Pokémon in the franchise due to its unsettling appearance and mysterious motives.
- Mimikyu's design is meant to mimic Pikachu, but its disguise is poorly drawn and its true form remains a mystery.
- Despite its cute exterior, Mimikyu is a tragic Pokémon, desperate to make friends but also aggressive towards those who ruin its disguise.
The Pokémon franchise has its fair share of spookiness, from lots of human ghosts to the infamous Lavender Town. But if you're looking for the scariest that the series has to offer, look no further than the Pokémon themselves. You have your child-kidnapping Drifloon, Gengar that lurk in the shadows, and more that will keep you up at night. But perhaps the most terrifying of all these monsters is Mimikyu.
Mimikyu was designed by Megumi Mizutani, an illustrator for the Pokémon Trading Card Game and for the franchise as a whole. During her time with GameFreak , she has done artwork for and designed a handful of characters and Pokémon since Pokémon Black and White, the start of the fifth generation of games. More recently, you've likely seen some of her designs in the music collaboration between Pokémon and Vocaloid's Hatsune Miku, Project VOLTAGE.
Mimikyu is a Ghost/Fairy-type Pokémon. At first glance, its design resembles that of the Pokémon franchise's mascot, Pikachu. But of course, this is entirely a disguise. The face is badly drawn using crayons, with the mouth appearing squiggly, the eyes uneven and the cheek pouches partly scribbled in. Its "tail" is actually just a stick that resembles a lightning bolt.
The cloth itself is a pale yellow, giving the impression that it has either been dirtied or bleached out. Given Mimikyu's Ghost typing, the pale color could also be seen as the "life" having been drained from it. The games do little to hide its false identity, with it being classified as the Disguise Pokémon. It also has a unique Disguise ability, allowing it to withstand the full damage of the first attack that hits it at the cost of the costume's neck breaking once per battle, causing the head to loll to one side.
RELATED: The FNAF Movie Looks Perfect, Except For One Thing
Pokédex entries across various games offer some interesting insight into Mimikyu and its motives. It was only recently discovered to be a Pokémon, since it was previously believed to be a ghost wearing a cloth (which it technically still is). Entries for its Disguised Form in the Pokémon Moon and Pokémon Sword games state that it disguises itself the way it does in order to make friends and look less scary, since Pikachu is very popular among both people and other Pokémon. Reports shared in Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Ultra Moon, and Pokémon Shield say that anyone unfortunate or unwise enough to see what was under the cloth is ensured a painful death, either from shock or a mysterious disease. In the anime, Team Rocket's Meowth has a near-death experience from just a fleeting glimpse. It's also known to reside in places that don't have much sunlight.
Despite everyone being aware of Mimikyu not really being a Pikachu, it's desperate to uphold the facade. It will get sad if its disguise is busted, even going so far as to cry, since it has trouble fixing it on its own, as stated in the Ultra Sun Pokédex entry for its Busted Form. Mimikyu can also be very aggressive towards anyone that ruins its disguise. The entries in Ultra Moon, Sword, and Violet state that Mimikyu will never forgive or forget anyone that ruins its disguise, seeking revenge on them even at the cost of its own life. Despite this aggressiveness, Mimikyu is definitely a tragic Pokémon, doomed to either make friends under false pretenses or be forced to kill others due to its appearance, which it can't control.
Mimikyu's debut in the Pokémon games was definitely a scary one. The seventh generation of games did away with the traditional gyms and had your character go through island trials instead. The ghost trial had you using your 3DS camera along with the Poké Finder to look around and take pictures of Ghost-type Pokémon in an abandoned store. It ended with you following a Pikachu into a locked room that opened up on its own. Things were even creepier in the Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon games, where Trial Captain Acerola appears in front of the door with her face obscured, screaming at you to get out before disappearing once you try to take a picture of her.
Once you went inside the back room, you'd find yourself in a small space with Pikachu posters and drawings on the walls, and then you'd feel something's eyes on you. Your Poké Finder would turn on by itself, and you'd hear the cries of a Pokémon in the room. By turning your 3DS around and looking down, you'll see Mimikyu staring right at you. After you'd take its picture, it would rapidly phase between its disguised form and the illusion of an actual Pikachu before screaming the words "Seeeeee meee?!" and starting a battle.
After defeating Mimikyu and leaving the trial site, you'd try to explain to Acerola what had occurred, but she wouldn't believe you, saying that there isn't even a room in the back of the store to begin with. Afterward, she'd get a chill down her spine before leaving the site, with Mimikyu being seen sulking behind the building in the background.

Mimikyu went on to become one of the franchise's most popular Pokémon, even surpassing the mascot. In a "Pokémon of the Year" poll hosted by the company back in 2020, Mimikyu took third place as the most popular Pokémon of all time, with second place going to Lucario and first going to Greninja. (In case you're wondering, Pikachu itself took 19th place). Team Rocket's Mimikyu was also a highlight of the Sun and Moon anime, where it was just as sinister and terrifying. It even earned itself some merchandising and advertisements, including its own song on the Pokémon YouTube channel.
You'd probably look at Mimikyu and wonder what's so scary about it. Unlike the outwardly unsettling appearance of those like Gengar and Banette, Mimikyu appears cute on the outside. What makes it so interesting and terrifying is how much we don't know about it. Much like the Lumiose City ghost girl , Mimikyu's true appearance remains a mystery, and so does how it came to be a Pokémon in the first place. It's those very things, along with its dilemma being relatable, that makes it such a likable (but clearly dangerous) monster in the community.
While we may not know what's under Mimikyu's cloth, the internet has come up with some really haunting stories and theories. Some speculate that it's an octopus-like creature, due to its ability to swim underwater in the anime along with how it attacks with dark appendages while simultaneously holding up the head of its disguise. One that I remember from long ago that's always stuck with me is that Mimikyu appears as a visual representation of the seer's greatest sins. The idea that all the bad things you've ever done can kill you when you come face-to-face with them was one I found more interesting and unique than the typical 'butt-ugly monster' shtick.
Mimikyu is a very interestingly designed Pokémon. It doesn't appear as scary as other ghost types do on the outside. But digging deeper into it, it's definitely among the most creepy and tragic of all the creatures.
