Rock is one of the best types offensively. Being resisted by only three of the seventeen types, two of which are hindered by their own bad defenses and relative scarcity helps it a lot, and the fact that {{p|Excadrill|only}} {{P|Steelix|four}} {{p|Lucario|Pokémon}} {{p|Cobalion|out}} of 649 have a double resistance to Rock keeps its moves relatively effective. Double weaknesses to Rock are relatively common, mostly due to the many Bug-types having  Flying as a secondary type, while the typically high-powered Ice- and Fire-types also do not fare well. As Pokémon of the three types that resist Rock typically can master Rock-type moves, this proves a quite versatile combination.

As Pokémon of the three types that resist Rock typically can master Rock-type moves, this proves a quite versatile combination. However, Rock is not a great type for [[special attack]]. There are only two special Rock type moves and both of them aren't very powerful. Also, there are very few rock type pokemon whose special attack is higher than its [[attack]].
    
When used in contests, Rock-type moves typically become [[Tough Contest|Tough]] moves, but can also be of the other four Contest types, excluding [[Cute Contest|Cute]].
