Dual Type

Dual Type pokemon often take more damage from a single element. However this is done in exchange for taking regular damage from another element the type in question is weak to. For example Pelipper is a dual Water/Flying Type pokemon. If Pelipper takes damage from a Grass Type attack it’ll only receive x1 damage because of it being half-Flying type. However if it gets hit from an Electric type attack Pelipper will take quadruple the damage.

Primary: Water

Dual Type Water Type Pokemon have two mixtures. One has Water as its primary type and the other as its secondary type. However regardless if the type is primary or secondary it does not affect the STAB and power of certain moves.
