Pokémon Types in Pokémon GO

Pokémon GO "Types" are groupings of Pokémon species that have similar characteristics.
There are 18 different Types of Pokémon in Pokémon GO: Normal, Fighting, Flying, Poison, Ground, Rock, Bug, Ghost, Steel, Fire, Grass, Water, Electric, Psychic, Ice, Dragon, Dark, and Fairy.

Each Type has strengths and weaknesses against other Types. A good Pokémon team will include a variety of different Types of Pokemon, as people will undoubtedly have a very wide assortment of Pokémon posted at various gyms. A single Pokémon may have either one or two types depending on its species.

E.g. Squirtle is a Water Type, while Bulbasaur is a Grass/Poison Type.
