The Dark type is one of the eighteen types. Prior to changes in Generation IV, all damaging Dark-type moves were special, but they may now also be physical depending on the attack.
The Dark type was introduced in Generation II, along with the Steel type.
The Dark type, along with the Steel type, was introduced in Generation II in order to balance against Psychic type, so it is immune to Psychic attacks. However, this immunity is nullified by Miracle Eye. Dark Pokémon have a single Ground weakness if their other type is Poison, which nullifies all of Dark type's other weaknesses. Dark Pokémon are immune to opposing Pokémon's moves that gain priority due to Prankster, including moves called by moves that call other moves (such as Assist and Nature Power) and excluding moves that are repeated as a result of Prankster-affected Instruct.
Dark-type attacks are resisted by Fighting, Dark, and Fairy, so using them along with Fairy attacks will optimize neutral coverage.
