The Fighting Type is among the 18 different types found in the Pokémon series, which is also most well-known for their powerful physical attacks. Read on for a more in-depth look on what a Fighting-Type Pokémon is, including its abilities, strengths, weaknesses, and more.

What is a Fighting Type Pokémon?

A Fighting Type Pokémon has the most super-effective damage than any other type found in any Pokémon series. It is highly effective against Dark, Ice, Normal, Rock, and SteelType Pokémon but is less effective against Bug, Fairy, Flying, Poison, and Psychic-Type Pokémon. They are weak against Fairy, Flying, and Psychic-type moves.

Most Fighting-type Pokémon can learn Rock-type moves to counter Bug-types and Flying-types, learn Posion-type moves to deal with Fairy-Types, and also learn Ghost-type moves against Psychic-types. In Pokémon Contests, Fighting-type moves are typically Cool or Tough moves. None of them are considered Cute.
