What is the normal Pokémon weakness? This is a question that you may or may not ask yourself. It depends on how often you think about these middle-of-the-road creatures. That’s not to say that they’re bad, more that there isn’t a lot to them when it comes to strengths and resistances. Still, it’s only right to tell you what the normal-type weakness is.
If you want one of these ‘mon on your team, our list of the best normal Pokémon can help you decide who’s the best fit for your squad. We also have electric Pokémon, poison Pokémon, bug Pokémon, water Pokémon, dark Pokémon, grass Pokémon, fire Pokémon, and ice Pokémon guides to help you fill out the other spots on your team.
Anyway, onto what you need to know about the normal Pokémon weakness.
The only normal Pokémon weakness is fighting-types, so maybe don’t give your ‘mon false hope that they’re the next Mike Tyson. Seriously, if they come across Lucario or Machamp, they won’t remember their name.
Normal Pokémon counters
As the only weakness normal Pokémon have is against fighting-types , you want to consider the following (as well as the aformentioned ‘mon):
- Gen 4 Pokémon Gallade (Check out our Ralts evolution guide to learn how to get one)
- Gen 7 Pokémon Bewear
- Gen 3 Pokémon Blaziken
- Gen 1 Pokémon Machamp
All of these Pokémon fall under the fighting-type category, and as normal Pokémon aren’t super effective against any type, you don’t have to worry too much about the opposing creature countering your buddy.
Normal Pokémon have no resistances but are immune to ghost-type attacks. However, this goes both ways, as any normal move goes straight through the otherworldly Pokémon. So, while there is only one official normal Pokémon weakness, don’t bring one without a dark-type move to any haunted Pokémon house.
This is just sad. There isn’t a single type that normal Pokémon are super-effective against. Seriously, not a single one. Oof, that’s gotta suck for Raticate, Persian, Furret, and Stantler. It’s even more annoying when you consider that there’s a normal Pokémon weakness. How, exactly, is that fair?
Well, there you have it. You finally know what the normal Pokémon weakness is. To learn how to best the other types, make sure you check out our dark Pokémon weakness, ghost Pokémon weakness, flying Pokémon weakness, ghost Pokémon weakness, steel Pokémon weakness, psychic Pokémon weakness, and electric Pokémon weakness guides.
