The Fighting type is one of the 18 Pokémon elemental types. It is mostly recognized as the only weakness of Normal-type Pokémon. Fighting-type Pokémon are known to have high Physical Attack with a large array of strong physical moves, although they have mediocre defenses on their own. Fighting-type attacks also have wide coverage, being super effective to a total of 5 types, tying with Ground-type for causing super effective damage to the most types. However, same with Normal-type moves, they have no effect on Ghost-type Pokémon despite Ghost-type moves still affecting them. Fighting-type Pokémon are weak to Flying-type, Psychic-type and the newly-introduced Fairy-type attacks. Worker Boss Deven on Tinbell Tower specializes in Fighting-type Pokémon.
