Pokemon Go: what are Pokemon Types for?
Pokemon in Pokemon Go all fall into one of a few categories types. A Pokemon can have one or two types, and types determine a number of things about that Pokemon. For one it determines where the Pokemon likes to live (more on that under the next heading), but it also determines battle strengths and weaknesses.

Theres 18 different types, and each type is either strong, weak or neutral to other types. At the most basic level with the starter Pokemon this breaks down to Rock, Paper, Scissors Charmander (Fire) beats Bulbasaur (Grass) who beats Squirtle (Water) who in turn beats Charmander.

The way types and battles in general work in Pokemon Go is marginally different to the major Pokemon games, but the same core concepts apply. In Pokemon Go each Pokemon has two moves. As well as the Pokemon itself having one or two types, its moves will also have types. A shortcoming in a Pokemons natural typing may be helped by the types of its moves.
