Pokemon SV Type Chart: MatchUps And Effectiveness

In Pokemon SV, just like in previous editions, each Pokemon has its own type that affects the damage it will deal or take from other Pokemon. We have prepared this Pokemon SV Type Chart guide to tell you about all the matchups and their effectiveness so you can choose the best Pokemon for fighting the particular Pokemon.

On top of Pokemon having different type effectiveness, their moves also have a type chart. Therefore, you can deal additional damage if you use a move with the same type as the Pokemon.

Similarly, if you use a move that is more effective against the other type, you can also deal additional damage. At the same time, some moves are ineffective against certain types, so the damage output is also low.

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet type effectiveness

Each Pokemon in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet has one or two types. Each type is weak and strong against some other types. You can take the example of Water-type Pokemon. Their moves are very effective against the Fire-type Pokemon.

But if a Water-type Pokemon faces a Grass-type Pokemon, it can’t perform effectively as they are weak against the Grass-type.

Some Pokemon also have two types, like Rock and Ground. So if you put that Pokemon against a Water-type Pokemon, it will take 4x damage as both these types are weak against the Water-type Pokemon.

But sometimes, two types will benefit a Pokemon as well. For example, if you have a Poison and Water type Pokemon fighting against a Grass type, your Pokemon will take average damage.

The reason is that Poison-type Pokemon are resistant to Grass-type moves. Below you will find complete details about the type effectiveness of Pokemon against each other so you can pick the right type in a fight.
