Pokemon GO Tips And Tricks: Best Attack Moves and Pokemon Advantages/Disadvantages

By on

In Pokemon GO, some Pokemon will have an automatic advantage to the opposing enemy Pokemon because of their types. Sometimes it can be easily memorized because how logically simple it is.

It goes like this, if a Water type Pokemon fights a Fire-type Pokemon, the Water-type Pokemon will have an automatic advantage because of how Water extinguishes a Fire in real life.

The same goes for a Fire-type Pokemon versus a Grass-type Pokemon, because of how a fire can burn a grass. However, there are several uncommon ones that cannot be found logically in the real world, like Dark Pokemon fighting a Psychic Pokemon.

Here is a breakdown of which.

In Pokemon GO, players shouldn?t rush into battle without knowing their own Pokemon thoroughly. Each Pokemon has their own?unique attacks that differs and sets them apart from the others. Knowing which attack move is the best will increase the chance of winning.

Choosing the wrong type of Pokemon will give the opponents a huge advantage, Pokemon Types are important when battling an opponent. Pokemon has their own specialties and weaknesses.

Using a succession of quick attacks followed up by a special attack won?t always work. Some attack types do more damage and some attack doesn?t do more than a scratch. For instance, if a Fire-type Pokemon uses a Fire-type attack, the damage will have an additional 1.5x increase.
