I created this (unfinished) table for an article about Type Origin I want to be on Bulbapedia. I need to put it somewhere else I think, but I guess it'll be fine here for now:

  • A Pokémon’s type is decided by:
  • What for kind of being the Pokémon is (based on).
  • What for kind of action the Pokémon (is able to) perform(s).
  • What for kind of element the Pokémon (partially) consists of, possesses, represents or contains.
  • What for kind of environment the Pokémon lives in, is commonly found in, protects, represents or rules over.

  • Sometimes a Pokémon would get more than three types, considering the above list; in that case the two most important features of a Pokémon are taken into consideration. (Charizard; Beedrill) Exceptions are when the balance or expansion of the type combination chart is more in favor. (Stunfisk)
  • Sometimes a dual-type Pokémon is partially Normal-type because the powers of the other type are (design-wise) focused onto one spot of its body. (Pyroar has its Fire focused in its manes; Sawsbuck has its Grass focused in its wooden horns.)
