==Characteristics==
 
The majority of Normal-type Pokémon do not have a second type. Almost all Normal-type Pokémon with two types are Normal/{{t|Flying}}, with the notable exceptions of {{p|Girafarig}} and {{p|Meloetta}}'s Aria Forme, which are Normal/{{t|Psychic}}, {{p|Bibarel}}, which is Normal/{{t|Water}}, {{p|Deerling}} and {{p|Sawsbuck}}, which are Normal/{{t|Grass}}, and {{p|Meloetta}}'s Pirouette Forme, which is Normal/{{t|Fighting}}.
 
There are also many Normal-type Pokémon that rely on an unusual "gimmick" strategy; these include {{p|Ditto}}, the {{p|Porygon}} family, {{p|Smeargle}}, {{p|Spinda}}, {{p|Castform}}, {{p|Kecleon}}, and {{p|Arceus}}. Thus, the Normal type could be thought of as the unspecialized "default" type.
 
=== Defense ===
 
The type performs similarly offensively. 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]]. Single-type Normal Pokémon generally have a wide variety of moves available to them with most of them being able to learn at least one move from the elemental {{t|Fire}}, {{t|Ice}}, and {{t|Electric}} type move groups, for example.
 
 
===Contest Properties===
 
When used in contests, Normal-type moves do not favor a particular contest type.
