Note: Although Normal-type attacks normally have no effect on Template:Type2 Pokémon, the moves Foresight and Odor Sleuth, as well as the ability Scrappy, allow both Normal-type and Template:Type2 moves to affect Ghost-type Pokémon. Additionally, the move Struggle can hit Ghost-type Pokémon.

Characteristics

The Normal type is considered to be one of the best types defensively, as it has only a single weakness and one immunity. Having only one weakness makes up for its lack of resistances, as it causes only the stats of the Pokémon to be involved in determining damage, and many Normal-type Pokémon have high stats defensively. Offensively, the type performs similarly. There are only two types that resist Normal-type moves, and one type which is immune. When facing Pokémon with no resistance to their moves, Normal-type Pokémon can often deal high amounts of damage with a combination of high stats and same-type attack bonus.

The majority of Normal-type Pokémon do not have a second type. Almost all Normal-type Pokémon with two types are Normal/Flying, with the notable exceptions of Girafarig and Meloetta's Voice Forme, which are Normal/Psychic, Bibarel, which is Normal/Water, Shikijika and Mebukijika, which are Normal/Grass, and Meloetta's Step Forme, which is Normal/Fighting.

Single-type Normal Pokémon generally have a wide variety of moves available to them. Most can learn at least one move of the Fire, Ice, and Electric types, for example.

There are also many Normal-type Pokémon that rely on an unusual "gimmick" strategy; these include Ditto, the Porygon family, Smeargle, Spinda, Castform, Kecleon, and Arceus. Thus, the Normal type could be thought of as the unspecialized "default" type.

When used in contests, Normal-type moves do not favor a particular contest type.

As of Generation V, 97 of 649 Pokémon are Normal-type, making it the second most common type, only beaten by Water-type.

  • Every generation has introduced Normal-type Pokémon with names that begin with the letters C, T, and S.
  • No type is weak to Normal-type moves, making the Normal type the only type that is not super effective against anything.
  • There are no Pokémon that have Normal as a secondary type.

  • The Normal-type has more non-damaging moves than any type, with 77 of them.
  • There are currently no Normal-type Pokémon with a double weakness (as nothing aside from Flying, Water, Grass, Psychic, and Fighting has been paired with it).
