Did you know that there are 17 different Pokemon types in Generation 2? There’s grass, water, normal, rock, electric, psychic, steel, fire, flying, bug, poison, ground, fighting, ghost, ice, dragon, and dark (in case you were wondering). And there are 100 new Pokemon added in from Gen 2 from the original 151 in Gen 1. Doesn’t seem like a lot, does it?
Well, even the biggest Pokemon fan may find it difficult to remember who’s who and which one is what type. It’s hard enough just to train them up, but there’s no denying that knowing what type your Pokemon is can be a huge advantage. Knowing your foes’ weaknesses can help make your journey quicker and level you up faster, too.
It also helps to know what your enemies type is so you can plan which Pokemon will be able to battle it most effectively. Have a grass type opponent coming up, whip out the Cyndaquil. Have a rock-type about to appear, whip out a water-type is dispose of them quickly.
Once you’ve gotten down what types the Pokemon are, and what their strengths and weaknesses are, the rest is a piece of cake (as long as you have a diverse enough lineup)! So, do you know your Gen 2 Pokemon? More importantly do you know their types? Some are a dead giveaway based on their look, but there are a few surprises.
Let’s find out just how well you know the Generation II Pokemon and their types.
