Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon - Steel Type Pokemon: Directory

This article contains all the information about Steel Type Pokemon including their weaknesses, their strengths from Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon.

Steel Type Pokemon

Introduced in Generation 2 the Steel Type Pokemon generally describes a group that have great durability. Majority of the Pokemon that belong to this type carry a huge number of resistances. Similar to Rock Types they can sponge Normal Type attacks with ease provided the latter is not maximized in attack.One of the transformations was Magnemite who transitioned from Electric to a Dual Type specifically Electric-Steel. This was also the time when new Pokemon that possess this Type were introduced. Notable examples are Scizor and Steelix. Unfortunately despite their high Defense they are often susceptible to Special Attacks. A common answer to most of them is to use Fire Type Pokemon as these can burn them to cinders. With the advent of Generation 6 Steel Types were nerfed to not carry a resistance to Dark Type attacks.The first Gym Leader to harness the power of Steel Type Pokemon was Jasmine from Olivine City Gym. Another was Steven of Hoenn then came Byron the Gym Leader of Canalave City and father of Roarke. It was not until the next installments of Generation 5 came that reintroduced a Steel Type specialist Team Plasma’s Colress. Then came Generation 6 showcasing Wikstrom the Steel Type specialist of the Kalos Elite Four and finally Generation 7 had Trial Captain Molayne the friend of Sophocles.
