( Normal type ノーマルタイプ Nōmaru taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.
The Normal type covers most of the Pokémon moves than the rest of the types. Most of them are harmless, or don't do it directly, they affect the Pokémon's characteristics instead. However, the damaging moves are based on standard attacks, like
Tackle and Scratch.
Normal-type Pokémon are more varied, with various statistics, growths and evolution methods. They also differ in habitats, they can be found in forests, caves, mountains, cities, etc.
This type is the one with less weaknesses, along with the
Electric type. But this type is also the only one that isn't very effective against another one.
Famous Normal-type Pokémon Trainers include
Whitney, the third Gym Leader of the Johto region; Norman, the fifth Gym Leader of Hoenn; Lenora, the second Gym Leader of Unova; and Cheren, replacing Lenora as Gym Leader in Pokémon Black 2 and White 2.

Relations with other types
They're weak against the type because a normal person doesn't stand a chance against a professional fighter.
Fighting The and Rock types resist them because a normal person's hit against those elements is not very effective, as they are both hard.
