'''[[Type]]s''' play as large a part in the [[Pokémon Trading Card Game|Pokémon TCG]] as they do in the [[Pokémon games|video games]]. Both [[Pokémon (TCG)|Pokémon]] and {{TCG|Energy card}}s can be one or more of these types. Similarly, a Pokémon can and probably will have a Weakness and Resistance to other types.
 
Unlike in the games, there are only eleven known types. Originally, there were only seven known types: {{TCG|Grass}} {{e|Grass}}, {{TCG|Fire}} {{e|Fire}}, {{TCG|Water}} {{e|Water}}, {{TCG|Lightning}} {{e|Lightning}}, {{TCG|Fighting}} {{e|Fighting}}, {{TCG|Psychic}} {{e|Psychic}}, and {{TCG|Colorless}} {{e|Colorless}}. In later expansions, four more types have been added: {{TCG|Darkness}} {{e|Darkness}}, {{TCG|Metal}} {{e|Metal}}, {{TCG|Dragon}} {{e|Dragon}}, and {{TCG|Fairy}} {{e|Fairy}}. The Fairy type was later retired.
 
Also, unlike the games, when a Pokémon {{TCG|Attack|attacks}}, the type of {{DL|Appendix:Glossary (TCG)|Damage|damage}} it does is based on the Pokémon's ''own'' type and not the type of [[Energy card|Energy]] the attack requires. For example, although {{TCG ID|Team Rocket|Dark Golduck|37}} uses {{TCG|Psychic}} energy to power both of its attacks, the attacks do double damage against a Pokémon weak to {{TCG|Water}} because Dark Golduck's TCG type is Water in this instance.
