If you know much about Temtem, then you know that much like Pokémon, the various types of monsters you can catch and collect all have their own strengths and weaknesses in battle. Unlike Pokémon, the difficulty of Temtem means you really need to know your super-effective and weak attacks before you find yourself on the sore end of a whooping from a dojo leader, or even worse, another online player.
So, we’ve put together this handy Temtem type chart guide, detailing all the available types and their effectiveness against each other. Some of these match-ups are very similar to Pokémon, such as the strength of water against fire, but there are enough changes to the formula to catch you off-guard if you don’t bone up on the Temtem types.
If you still haven’t found yourself in Crema’s magnificent monster-taming adventure, check out our Temtem review to see why we think it’s worthy of taking on Game Freak’s monolithic series.

Temtem type chart
The good folks over at Crema must have anticipated players looking for a type chart as it handily uploaded the one below to its Twitter early into development. Fortunately, nothing has changed in terms of typings, so you can trust the chart to steer you true in battle.
Temtem types explained
If you found the Temtem chart above a little difficult to follow, don’t worry, you’re not the only one. To help out that little bit more, we’ve put together our own table of type match-ups where you can easily search through for the information you’re looking to find. Just remember that some Temtem have dual-typings, and you have to do your own math there.
