lesson 3 - fighting & rock pokémon
Fighting Pokémon are often based on martial artists and are very strong and muscular. They are very good offensive Pokémon with most of their moves in the Physical category. Fighting Pokémon are super-effective against Normal, Ice, Rock, Dark, and Steel pokemon, while being very ineffective or having no effect on Poison, Flying, Psychic, Bug and Ghost Pokémon. Flying and Psychic Pokémon are super-effective against Fighting types and Bug, Rock, and Dark Pokémon are not very effective. With only 42 total Pokémon in this type, they make up one of the smallest types out of them all.
Machop - machoke - machamp
This family of Pokémon is constantly training as well. A Machop is able to hurl an adult human and will lift boulders and Graveler Pokémon as though they were dumbbells to strengthen. Machoke are often found employed in urban areas doing manual labor. Once evolved, Machamp have mastered every form of martial arts. They can throw 1000 punches in a few seconds and can move mountains with one hand. They cannot handle delicate work though, as their arms will get tangled.
timburr - gurdurr - conkeldurr
Timburrs are always seen with a block of wood on them and often work helping construction workers. They evolve into Gurdurr when they can easily lift heavy blocks. Gurdurr is so strong that it would not budge if attacked by a group of professional wrestlers and often boasts about its muscles while carrying a steel frame. Conkeldurr is believed to have taught humans how to create concrete 2000 years ago, and also works around construction sites.
Some of the most notable Fighting-type trainers are:
Rock Pokémon usually have a high defense, but many Rock types are dual Ground types which means they have a 4x weakness to both Grass and Water types. Rock moves are super-effective against Fire, Ice, Flying, and Bug types, but are not very effective against Fighting, Ground, and Steel types. Normal, Fire, Poison, and Flying type are not very effective against Rock Pokémon, but Water, Grass, Fighting, Ground, and Steal Pokémon are super-effective against them. With 47 Pokémon in this type, they are also a smaller subsection of Pokémon.
roggenrola - boldore - gigalith
Roggenrola may look like it has a hexagonal eye in the middle, but it is actually an ear. Even after transforming into Boldore, the two yellow octagonal shapes are it's ears. It is not until the Pokémon has evolved into Gigalith that there are then two red eyes in the middle of its yellow ears. They can hear things inaudible to humans and are so hard that they were once thought to actually be Steel-typed Pokémon.
