As we were known each type of Pokémon has its own strengths and weaknesses in both attack and defense especially during the battle. In order to get advantage over your opponent, you should choose your Pokémon and moves that have a type advantage. By doing so, you can cause more damage to your rival gym’s Pokémon and conquer the battle and then the gym more easily.
In Pokémon GO, the game will only shows you the effectiveness of the damage you gave or took in the battle. For example, if Electric type move will deal to Water type Pokémon, it will be written as ‘Super-effective’. On the other hand, if Electric type move deal damage to Grass type Pokémon, it will be written as ‘Not very-effective’.
Is the Immunity apply in Pokémon GO?
In the previous Nintendo game, Immunity does apply. For example, if Ghost type Pokémon will be immune to any Normal type move. However, in Pokémon GO, there is no immunity. Every immunity will turns into ‘Not very-effective’. So just like the real match in the anime series, any moves could actually give damage to any Pokémon.
For Dual-type Pokémon, How the damage count?
Please be noted that since Immunity is not available in the game, thus, 4x damage is also not available in the game. Confirmed by many. So, Pokémon GO only has ‘Neutral’, ‘Not very-effective’ and ‘Super-effective’. Due to the complexity of Dual type Pokémon, here is what we found.
Let’s say, Bulbasaur is a Pokémon of Grass and Poison type, but Flying attack is only deal Super Effective against Grass type pokemon. So, according to the math, ‘Super-effective’ + ‘Neutral’ = ‘Super-effective’.
In the other example, Gyarados is a Pokémon of Flying and Water type, Electric attack is Super Effective against both of these type. So, when ‘Super-effective’ + ‘Super-effective’ = ‘Super-effective’ only.
If Grass type attack dealing damage to Gyarados, since Grass type is Super Effective against Water type but ‘Not very-effective’ to Flying type. Thus, ‘Super-effective’ + ‘Not very-effective’ = ‘Neutral’.
