Type Normal
Type Normal HOME

The Normal type (Japanese: ノーマルタイプ, HepburnNoomaru taipu) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

More moves are Normal type than any other type; however, many of these moves are status moves that don't inflict any damage. Prior to Generation IV, all Normal-type moves that dealt damage were physical attacks; today, the majority of Normal attacks remain physical, with only a few special-attacking Normal moves introduced plus a handful of previous attacks being changed to special-attacking. Normal moves are widely distributed among the majority of species of Pokémon, with several capable of being learned by every species that can learn TMs and HMs, or Move Tutor moves. Some low-powered moves like Tackle and Scratch stand out for being the first damage-inflicting move that various species learn by level-up.

Among species, Normal-type Pokémon tend to be based on a variety of different real-world animals. Normal typically did not pair with other types except Flying, in order to portray standard species of birds. As the generations progressed, more Normal types were introduced that represented other types as well. In every generation, one would encounter a purely Normal-type species in the wild in the first route that they encounter wild Pokémon in; that particular species would evolve into its final form at or before level 20.

The Normal type has been specifically engineered to lack any offensive or defensive advantage: offensively it hits no types super-effectively but two types resist it and one is immune to it, while defensively it resists no types (but is immune to one), while one type hits it super-effectively. Defensive Normal-type Pokémon would typically have high defensive stats while offensive Normal types would typically learn a large variety of moves.

Normal is also used to represent some species, and even moves, that change type - notable examples include Castform, Kecleon and Arceus, who can all change type through their abilities. Conversion and Conversion 2 both change the user's type but are learned only by Porygon's evolutionary line. Hidden Power and Natural Gift are Normal-type moves by classification but can be any other type depending on the specific factors - Hidden Power can never be Normal type in practice, while only one kind of Berry grants Natural Gift a Normal type.

Famous Normal-type Pokémon Trainers include Whitney, the third Gym Leader of the Johto region; Norman, the fifth Gym Leader of Hoenn; Lenora, the second Gym Leader of Unova; Cheren, who replaces Lenora as Gym Leader in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2; and Ilima, the Trial Captain of Melemele Island, Alola.

Relations with other types[]

  • They're weak against the Fighting type because a regular person doesn't stand a chance against a professional fighter.
  • The Rock and Steel types resist them because a normal person's hit against those elements is not very effective, as they are both hard.
  • They're immune to the Ghost type and vice versa because a mortal and a ghost can't hurt each other.
