Pokémon Legends: Arceus features many different types of Pokémon, all with their own strengths and weaknesses. Our Pokémon Legends: Arceus guide’s strength and weakness type chart explains every type matchup. Use this guide to figure out which moves are super effective against any opponent.
Pokémon Legends: Arceus types, strengths, and weakness
Pokémon also has its own set of weaknesses and strengths. For example, bug-type Pokémon are weak against fire-, flying-, and rock-type moves. Bug-type moves are strong against dark-, grass-, and psychic-type moves. Fire-, flying-, and rock-type moves will do double damage against a bug-type, like Wurmple.
Some Pokémon have two types, which means they can have a doubled weakness or have their strength and weaknesses cancel out to just take normal damage. Abomasnow, a grass- and ice-type, takes four times the damage from fire-type moves. On the flip side, Sealeo, a water- and ice-type, takes normal damage from fire-type moves, since water-type is strong against fire-type.
Strengths and weaknesses aren’t necessarily just opposites of each other. Though fire-type moves deal less damage to water-type Pokémon and water-type moves do doubled damage against fire-type Pokémon, this isn’t the case with every type. For example, fighting-type moves are strong against normal-types, but normal-types just do regular damage against fighting-types.
Knowing what Pokémon’s strengths and weaknesses are is an important aspect of raiding and battling. To do the most damage you can in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, make sure that your Pokémon’s moves are strong against whatever it’s battling.
Memorizing all of that can get confusing, so here’s a chart to help you out.
