The Dark type is one of the 18 types of Pokemon. Dark types have a weakness to Bug, Fighting and Fairy type moves. Dark type holds an immunity to Psychic type moves; which meant in Pokémon X and Y that Delphox's Psychic type moves can't affect Greninja's Dark type moves. They resist themselves and the Ghost type. Dark is strong against Psychic and Ghost types.


  • From Generation II to Generation V, Dark types weren't very effective against Steel types.
  • All types that are good against Dark types resist Poison types.
