Characteristics

Defense

Tied with Grass, Rock types have the most weaknesses of any type, with five. Additionally, double weaknesses among Rock types are very common.

Since Generation IV, the Special Defense of a Rock-type Pokémon is increased by 50% during a sandstorm, in addition to being immune to the damage caused by it.

Rock-type Pokémon, on average, have the lowest Speed of all Pokémon and of fully evolved Pokémon.

Offense

In particular, Rock pairs well with Ground, since very few Pokémon naturally resist this combination. Most Rock-types can learn Earthquake to this end. The biggest drawback of Rock-type moves is the large percentage of moves which have less than 100% accuracy.
