Characteristics

Defense

While the Fighting type has three different weaknesses, Fighting-type Pokémon with a secondary Steel typing have the advantage of having those three weaknesses neutralized, leaving them only with Steel's weaknesses. Fighting-type Pokémon with a secondary Dark typing have their Psychic weakness completely immunized.

Offense

The Fighting type hits five different types for super-effective damage, the most for any type, tied by only the Ground type. It is the only type that deals super effective damage against Normal. Ghost's immunity to Fighting can be nullified by Foresight or Odor Sleuth.

Most Fighting-type Pokémon can learn Rock-type moves to check Bug-types and Flying-types. Additionally, many Fighting types can also learn Poison type moves to deal with Fairy types, as well as Dark and sometimes Ghost type moves to deal with Psychic-types. Notably, the combination of Fighting and Ghost deals at least neutral damage to all type combinations bar Normal/Ghost, which has not materialized (unless Trick-or-Treat is considered).

On average, Fighting-type Pokémon have the highest physical Attack of all types.
