type Pokémon learn specifically labelled fighting melee attacks, such as punches and kicks. Many fighting type Pokémon resemble humans in some way. Fighting types are often associated with martial arts, athletics, and physical training. They usually focus on attack, rather than defense. Until the release of Hawlucha in Generation VI, the Fighting type was the only type that has not been paired with a -type in a Pokémon. Fighting-types are resistant to -types.-
