Darkness sometimes represent evil and crime, but Dark Pokémon are quite misunderstood there. Dark-type Pokémon are known for often using sinister and deceptive moves such as biting and stealing. Some Dark Pokémon include Sneasel, Absol, Poochyena, Umbreon and Houndour. This is also the only Pokémon type which does not have a gym (only some Elite Four members use them). They are often used by criminals as well. Dark Pokémon are usually seen at night, but they are seen in the daytime as well.

They are weak against Bug and Fighting moves, but strong against Psychic and Ghost. They are also completely immune to Psychic moves.

Trivia

  • If a two-typed Pokémon is both Dark and Ghost type, both types cancel out each others weaknesses with their resistances, leaving Pokémon like Spiritomb and Sabalye with no weakness.
  • As of yet, this is the only Pokemon type not to be used in a Gym.
