Weaknesses & Resistances

All Pokemon have certain weakness and resistances against other given types of moves. Knowing a Pokemon's Weaknesses and Resistances is important in any Pokemon Game, especially so in Pokemon GO. If you know what you're up against, as well as your own Pokemon's areas of difficulty, you'll be one step ahead when entering battles at Gyms. And the more Gyms you win, the more experience you will earn. (If a Pokemon is a given Dual Type where both types are weak to another given type, it will do x1.96 Damage instead of x1.4 Damage. Ex: A Bug/Fighting Type like Heracross is x1.96 weak to Flying Types.)
