Just as every generation before it, the fourth generation of Pokémon introduced several new additions for players to capture as they attempt to “catch ’em all.” 107 brand new creatures made their debut in the original Diamond and Pearl with some fan favorites, including Lucario. One of the other creatures that made their debut in that generation was Weavile, and with players making a return to the Sinnoh region with Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, players might find themselves putting Weavile in their party. Once you get your hands on a Pokémon in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, that is only half the battle, with the other half being the battles themselves. When you get into a Pokémon battle, it is essential to know the weaknesses of your Pokémon. I can clarify how these stats work and which ones you need to pay attention to. This guide will break down all of Weavile’s Weaknesses in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Weavile’s Weaknesses in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl
Weavile is a Dark and Ice-type Pokémon, thus making it weak to many different types, the number being six in total. Those types are Fighting, Fairy, Steel, Rock, Bug, and Fire. The attack type that you are going to want to really look out for is fighting type attack since these are super effective and will do four times the regular damage to Weavile. The other five weaknesses come out to do two times the regular damage against Weavile.
While it is good to know Weavile’s weaknesses to ensure he avoids those situations, it is just as important to also find Weavile’s strengths. One of those strengths is that Weavile is immune to Psychic attacks. The Pokémon is also strong against its types of Ice and dark as well as Ghost type attacks. The three types that Weavile is strong against will do half damage against Weavile. This makes it very important that you know to use it against these types of Pokémon so that you know how to use Weavile’s strengths and avoid his weaknesses.
Both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Pokémon Shining Pearl are available now on the Nintendo Switch.
