Pokémon Type Chart: Strengths and Weaknesses
All Pokémon and their moves are assigned a type. Each type has its own strengths and weaknesses when battling. To maximize the damage you deal during a battle, you should choose Pokémon and moves that have a type advantage over your opponent. By doing this, you will cause greater damage than usual.
Pokémon can have up to two types, and are called dual-type Pokémon. Moves, however, can only be one type, with the exception of Flying Press, which is a Fighting/Flying-type move.
We have two Pokémon type charts.

Type vs. Type Chart
This type matrix shows the attack effectiveness of each type. Each row represents the attacking type. Each column representing the defending type. The damage multiplier represents how much damage the attacker's will deal to the defender. For example, a Fire type will do 2x damage to Grass, Ice, Bug, and Steel types.
Look across the defender header to find the type of the Pokémon you are battling. Then look down, to find a Pokémon type that is effectiveness against this type. You can also use this to see what types a Pokémon is vulnerable to.
You can also look down the left-hand header to find the attacking type, and then look across horizontally to see which types it is effective against.
This Pokémon type chart is accurate for games Generation 6 onwards, which was released in 2013 with X/Y.
