Type chart
 
A '''type chart''', also known as '''type matchup chart''', shows which modifiers are applied to [[move]] types when attacking {{OBP|Pokémon|species}} of each type. If the defending Pokémon is dual-typed, the modifier is calculated as the product of the modifiers for both of its types: a {{type|Flying}} move would hit for 4× damage on a {{2t|Bug|Grass}} Pokémon, while a {{type|Ground}} move used against the same would do only a quarter of the normal damage. (A complete ineffectiveness against either type will make the move deal no damage, since 0 multiplied by any number is 0.)
 
Several types form a “type triangle”, where one type is strong against another, and another type is strong against the first but weak to the other, such as Grass-Fire-Water or Fighting-Psychic-Dark.
 
The type chart differs depending on the [[generation]] of {{pkmn|games}} it is from. The type chart for [[Generation VI]] onward is shown below.
