PKMBuy - Pokémon Type Weakness Guide In Pokémon Scarlet and Violet (Attack/ Defense Chart)
An enticing open-world adventure with story options, challenging gym leaders, and an adorable Spanish pig in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. That piggy and those gym challenges relate to the same type of diagrams you recognize from other Pokémon games, but trainers may find themselves in need of a refresher as they roam the Paldea region where scarlet and violet wobble.
The type of Pokémon (fire, water, or other) gives it an advantage (“it’s super effective!”) or a disadvantage (“it’s not very effective…”) in a fight with another type. All 18 Pokémon types are subject to this natural order--some of which do feel natural, like fire-types igniting grass-types or water-soaked fire--and are able to take advantage of their double-damage advantage or half-damage weakness. This still works in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, but gets a bit more complicated with dual-attribute Pokémon (eg, Bug/Steel type Scizor, or Electric/Fairy type Dedenne), which have both types' pros and cons - unless one Types have a resistance that counteracts another kind of weakness.
Like most Pokémon games, Scarlet and Violet's type system adds a quirk in the form of its Terastallizing mechanic, but it otherwise sticks to the franchise's usual charts.

Scarlet and Violet most notably changed the type chart experience, introducing Terastallizing, a process that turns any Paldea Pokémon into a shimmering, crystallized version of each battle. It requires a glossy Onyx Tera Orb, which unfortunately is only single-use, but can be recharged by visiting a Pokémon Center or by touching Terastal Power Crystals you may find on your travels.
Tera Types are also personalizable, so you can have multiple electric-type Pawmi with all the different Tera Types. You can also change a Pokémon's Tera type by knocking out Medali Gym Leader Larry, then paying the chef at Treasure Eatery 50 Tera Shards, which can be found organically by completing Tera Raids, or as gifts.
The strengths and weaknesses of the Tera types also seem to correspond to their non-Tera types, so just keep your old 18 flashcards handy and get ready for battle.
