Fighting (type)

The Fighting type (Japanese: かくとうタイプ Fighting type) is one of the eighteen types. Fighting-type moves are super effective against Dark-, Ice-, Normal-, Rock-, and Steel-type Pokémon, while Fighting-type Pokémon are weak to Flying-, Fairy-, and Psychic-type moves.

Pokémon

As of Generation IX, 82 Pokémon or 8% of all Pokémon are Fighting-type (counting those that are Fighting-type in at least one of their forms, including Mega Evolutions and regional forms), causing it to tie with Dark as the 9th rarest type among Pokémon after Ground, Rock and Steel and before Fire and Poison. All other types have been paired up with Fighting at least once.

Moves

As of Generation IX, there are 57 Fighting-type moves, which makes up 6.10% of all moves (excluding those that are Fighting-type only under certain circumstances), making it the 4th most common type among moves, after Grass and before Water and Dark.

Prior to changes in Generation IV, all damaging Fighting-type moves were physical, but they may now also be special depending on the attack.

In the TCG

Main article: Fighting (TCG)

Due to the decreased amount of types in the TCG, Fighting generally adopts all Rock- and Ground-type Pokémon under its typing.

Fighting-type Pokémon in the TCG are generally weak to Psychic with no resistances. Fighting-type Pokémon are strong against Colorless, Darkness and Lightning Pokémon, whilst some Colorless and Psychic Pokémon can resist the Fighting type.

Trivia

  • Generation V introduced the most Fighting-type Pokémon of any generation, with 16 (including Meloetta's Pirouette Forme), and Generation II introduced the fewest, with three.
  • Generations I, II, and IV introduced the most Fighting-type moves of any Generation, with eight, and Generation VII introduced the fewest, with only one: All-Out Pummeling.
  • Fighting has been paired up with every other type at least once.
    • The Fighting type was the last type to receive a Pokémon with Flying as the other type, only receiving one with Hawlucha in Generation VI.
  • All Fighting-type moves that do damage only target one foe, and all physical Fighting-type moves make contact except for one, Meteor Assault.
  • There has been at least one Fighting-type specialist in every region and generation. It shares this trait with the Psychic and Ice types, although Ice-type trainer Sina is not native to the Alola region where she can be battled.
  • Color representations for the Fighting type have generally been inconsistent in various Pokémon media. While the Fighting type has been associated with the color red in the main Pokémon games since Generation III and up to Sword and Shield, it is associated with orange in the Pokémon Stadium series, the Pokémon Mystery Dungeon series, Pokémon Masters EX, and the main Pokémon games since Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. It is also associated with the color brown in the Pokémon Trading Card Game.
  • The Fighting type is the most common secondary type for evolutions of starter Pokémon, with six starter lines being paired with it, three of them being Fire-type.
  • The Fighting type could be considered a physical counterpart to the Psychic type:
    • The highest average stat among all Fighting-type Pokémon is Attack, while for Psychic-type Pokémon, it is Special Attack.
    • While the Fighting type is the only formerly physical type to not have any old moves changed into special moves, the Psychic type is the only formerly special type to not have any old moves changed into physical moves.
    • Counter and Mirror Coat, moves countering physical and special attacks are, respectively, Fighting- and Psychic-type moves.
    • Bulk Up and Calm Mind, moves raising physical and special stats are, respectively, Fighting- and Psychic-type moves.
    • The Cram-o-matic considers Choice Band and Muscle Band Fighting-type inputs, and Choice Specs and Wise Glasses Psychic-type inputs.
  • The Fighting type is tied with the Ground type for being super effective against the most amount of types, with five.
  • The Fighting type is the only type that deals super effective damage against the Normal type.
  • On average, Fighting-type Pokémon have the highest physical Attack of all types.
  • The Fighting and Bug types are the only two separate types that resist each other.
  • Every Fighting-type Gym Leader and Elite Four member, along with Eri from Team Star, uses a Machamp or a Lucario or in at least one of their teams.
  • The Fighting type is the most common type for Paradox Pokémon to have, with five Paradox Pokémon being Fighting-type.
