Veteran Pokemon players are well aware that the game has tons of matchup variations to master if a trainer wants to be the best there ever was. This variety and challenge is part of what has kept the franchise fresh and engaging over the years. That still holds true in Pokemon GO, where counters and weaknesses are incredibly important to Battle Raids and PvP matches.
One of the downsides of the complicated move-type system is that it can be near impossible to memorize each of the strengths and weaknesses of the many different types. Luckily, there are plenty of Pokemon GO community resources for players to reference before diving into an important battle. With so much data to consider, a comprehensive guide to move strengths and weaknesses can be pretty unwieldy to understand and manage. A new update to a wheel representation of every matchup does a pretty great job of trying to simplify this massive amount of information, without bogging users down with a lengthly infographic.
There is still a ton of information to digest, but for players who know what they want to double check or look for, this graphic is a ton of help. The average player doesn’t need to worry quite so much about this sort of thing on a daily basis, but players who are trying to trying to min max, for things like soloing difficulty Raid Bosses, can get a lot of value out of this type of resource.
