Dark (type)

Trivia: Piers is the first Dark-type Gym Leader. (Marnie is one too, once she takes over)
* Prior to Generation VI, Dark/Ghost Pokémon normally had no weaknesses (excluding {{t|Fighting}} under immunity-negating conditions such as {{m|Foresight}} or {{a|Scrappy}}), as the resistances of the Dark type cover the weaknesses of Ghost, and vice-versa. Introduced in Generation VI, the {{t|Fairy}} type is super effective against Dark and not resisted by Ghost.
* All moves that fail unless used by a certain species or form of Pokémon ({{m|Hyperspace Fury}} and {{m|Dark Void}}) are Dark-type.
* The Dark type is the only type that has yet to have a [[Gym Leader]] [[type expert|specialize in it]], although it is a recurrent type used by members of [[villainous teams]] and the [[Elite Four]].
* All Dark-type moves are eligible to be used in [[Sky Battle]]s.
