Pokemon attacks can be either supereffective, regularly effective, not-very-effective, or can deal no damage at all (immune). Below is a chart to show you which attacks are how much effective against another type.
But wait! There are dual types! How do we calculate those? You would take the effectiveness of both of the defending types and add them together. Sound complicated? Here’s an example:
Seed Bomb [GRASS] on Salamence [DRAGON/FLYING]
Since Grass moves deal x0.5 to Dragon types, you will throw in x0.5 into your equation.
Since Grass moves deal x0.5 to Flying types, you will throw in another x0.5 into your equation.
To avoid confusion, Seed Bomb’s base power is 80.
Your equation: 80 x 0.5 x 0.5 = 20
As you can see, both the Grass to Dragon matchup and the Grass to Flying matchup is in the equation. In conclusion, Seed Bomb will have a power of 20 when attacking a Salamence. Not very Effective matchup.
Iron Head [STEEL] on Walrein [WATER/ICE]
Since Steel moves deal x2 to Ice types, you will throw in x2 into your equation.
Since Steel moves deal x0.5 to Water types, you will throw in x0.5 into your equation.
To avoid confusion, Iron Head’s base power is 80.
Your equation: 80 x 2 x 0.5 = 80
As you can see, both the Steel to Ice and the Steel to Water matchup is included in the equation. In conclusion, Iron Head will have a base power of 80 when attacking a Walrein. Regularly effective matchup.
