===GenerationIn IVbattle===
====Generation IV====
Multitype changes the [[type]] of the Pokémon with this Ability depending on the [[Plate]] attached. The item-removing effects of {{m|Thief}}, {{m|Covet}}, {{m|Trick}}, {{m|Switcheroo}}, and {{m|Knock Off}} will not work on a Pokémon with Multitype, regardless of what item it is holding.
When a Pokémon {{m|Transform}}s into Arceus, it becomes Arceus's {{t|Normal}} form. If it is holding a [[Plate]], it will Transform first into Arceus's current form and will then change type and appearance to the type corresponding to that Plate.
====Generation V onwards-VI====
A Pokémon with Multitype cannot be affected by type changing moves, such as {{m|Soak}}. A Pokémon with Multitype is unaffected by {{m|Entrainment}} and {{m|Simple Beam}}. Multitype cannot turn into {{a|Mummy}}.
Multitype will now only prevent the effects of {{m|Knock Off}}, {{m|Trick}}, {{m|Switcheroo}}, {{m|Thief}} or {{m|Covet}} if the target is specifically holding a [[Plate]].
====Generation VII====
Multitype user's type will also change the Pokémon's type if it holds a type-specific [[Z-Crystal]].
==={{g|Mystery Dungeon series}}===
===={{g|Mystery Dungeon series}}====
In {{pkmn|Super Mystery Dungeon}}, a Pokémon with Multitype and all of its teammates' moves deal additional damage as if they had the [[same-type attack bonus]]. Type-effectiveness for the moves still apply normally.
