Part 2 of 3: Understanding Weaknesses
Step 1. Understand the weakness of Fire
Fire cannot burn water, earth and stone, this is the meaning of its weaknesses.
Step 2. Understand the weakness of Water
Electricity passes through the water, and the grass absorbs it, this is the meaning of its weaknesses.
Step 3. Understand the weakness of Electricity
Electricity is weak against the earth because the earth absorbs it.
Step 4. Understand the weakness of the Herb
The grass is weak against being killed in real life (Fire, Ice, Beetles, Poison). Imagine that Grass is weak against flying ones, because birds fly through the grass in search of bugs, or because bird droppings spoil the fun of being in the grass. Choose any method that is convenient for you to remember this weakness.
Step 5. Understand Ice's weakness
The years melt from fire and burst from physical exertion (fighting), metal tools (steel), and stones, so Ice is weak against these types.
Step 6. Understand the weakness of the Fighters
Fighters flee from fear (psychic types), and cannot reach flying objects (flying types), therefore Fighters are weak against them. Fighters are weak against Magic - for balance in the game. However, since Sorcery represents nature that is stronger than any fighter; you can choose any reasonable justification.
Step 7. Understand the weakness of the Poison
The poison is absorbed by the earth, and you will not be able to poison what in fact does not exist (Psychic), therefore the Poison is weak against such types.
Step 8. Understand the weakness of the Earth
The Earth is eroded by water, ice and grass in real life, so the Earth is weak against them.
Step 9. Understand the weakness of the Flying
Flying ones are weak against things that hurt flying creatures. Lightning (Electricity), Blizzard (Ice) or Landslide (Rock) can seriously harm birds, therefore Flying is weak against them.
Step 10. Understand the weakness of the Psychic
Psychics are afraid of what you would be afraid of (Beetles, Darkness and Ghosts). This weakness is easy to remember.
Step 11. Understand the weakness of the Beetles
Beetles are weak to things that can kill in real life (Birds, Fire and Stone).
Step 12. Understand the weakness of the Stones
The stone is weak to things that can break it in real life (Water, Grass, Fighters, Earth and Steel).
Step 13. Understand the weakness of Ghosts
Ghosts use tricks that are unknown to most living creatures. However, evil forces (Darkness) and ghosts are aware of these tricks. Therefore, the Ghosts are weak to Darkness and to themselves.
Step 14. Understand the weakness of the Dragons
Dragons are so strong that they are weak only to creatures of their own kind and the forces of nature (in this case, to Magic). Dragons are reptiles, and reptiles cannot stand cold (Ice), so the Dragon is weak to Ice.
Step 15. Understand the weakness of Steel
Steel is weak to fire and physical strength (Fighters). Also, Steel is weak to Earth, which contains metal when raw.
Step 16. Understand the weakness of Darkness
Darkness is weak to Fighters because Darkness uses devious, dirty tricks while Fighters use noble, disciplined techniques. Essentially, good versus evil. For the same reason, Darkness is weak to Magic. Darkness is weak to Bugs, mainly because there were balance issues in the game when this type appeared in the game, but you can think of it in the same way as others. A small, innocent bug against a big terrible darkness? Good must defeat evil!
Step 17. Understand the weakness of Magic
Magical ones personify the forces of nature. However, Steel is an unnatural invention of mankind, therefore Magic is weak to it. And also, Magic is weak to Poison, because poison can harm nature.
Part 3 of 3: Using other factors
Step 1. Don't neglect inefficiency
Certain types of Pokémon will be completely useless against others. There are only a few species and they are easy enough to understand (Normal and Ghosts cannot fight each other, the Earth cannot reach the Flying, and so on), you should not forget about these principles. You don't want to find yourself in a situation where your attacks become useless!
Step 2. Use bonuses of attacks of the same type
In games, when a Pokémon uses an attack that is the same as at least one of its types, then it gains a 50% increase in attack power. For example, a Steel Pokémon, like Aaron, uses an attack like a Metal Claw. Remember to use this bonus whenever possible, as it can change the course of your battles.
Step 3. Pay attention to the weather
Weather can affect your Pokémon's performance in battle. For example, Intense Sunlight can add attack power to a Fire Pokémon, and reduce the attack power of a Water Pokémon.
Step 4. Get special skills
Certain skills can help or harm your Pokémon, depending on its type. Levitation, for example, will reduce Earth Attack. Get skills that will help your Pokémon and look at what the opponent's Pokémon is using. If your Pokémon type is weak against another, then take it out of the battle!
Step 5. Get special items
There are wearable items that can increase your Pokémon's attack power, and there are items for special types of Pokémon that can also increase its attack power. For example, Black Belt can increase the attack power of Fighting Pokémon.
The more you play, the easier it will be for you to remember the strengths and weaknesses of different types of Pokémon. In time, you will succeed
- Be careful about using super efficient Pokémon against each other if you want to catch him. There is a chance that you will kill him in one hit!
- If something goes wrong during the battle, press pause and see! You may be using the wrong type of Pokémon!
