A '''type''' (Japanese: '''タイプ''' ''Type'') is a property for {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} and their [[move]]s. Each type has three properties: which types of Pokémon it is super effective against, which types of Pokémon it is not very effective against, and which types of Pokémon it is completely ineffective against. There are 17 types, each of which is listed to the right. During [[Generation I]], types were occasionally referred to as '''elements'''.

A Pokémon may have either one or two types. For instance, {{p|Charmander}} is a {{t|Fire}} type, while {{p|Bulbasaur}} is both a {{t|Grass}} type and a {{t|Poison}} type. With the current 17-type system, there are a possible 289 different type combinations; however, since order is unimportant, there are 153 effective type combinations. Currently there are 108 different type combinations. A move may have only one type.
