### Notes

[edit | edit source]- This table ignores special abilities.
- Some Pokémon gain a new type when they evolve. If they already have 2 types, they will loose one.
- Forretress and Scizor are only weak to Fire type. This weakness is double weakness.
- Cascoon, Forretress, Metapod, Nincada, Pineco and Silcoon have a physical/special defence ratio of over 2; this means that a special move is better than a physical move for which the type matching says is twice as good.
- Ledian have a physical/special defence ratio of under 1/2; this means that a physical move is better than a special move for which the type matching says is twice as good.
