Periodically, a new generation of Pokemon brings in a new type. And with a new type comes an avalanche of weakness and resistances that any trainer worth their salt will have to take into consideration. While Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have come with a slew of new pokemon and interesting type combinations, there are no new elemental types.
But Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s inclusion of the Terastal mechanic, a temporary transformation that allows certain pokemon once per battle to change their typing. So, your electric-type Pikachu might Terastallize and turn into a fire-type! This new mechanic adds an entire extra dimension to battling, so it’s more important than ever to know the types.
