Type Steel

Steel-type Pokémon are made of, or coated with, steel. They, along with Rock-type Pokémon and Ground-type Pokémon, are the three types that represent earth's minerals (all three are immune to the Sandstorm weather condition) with steel representing metal. Steel Pokémon are known for their resilience and strength.

Magnemite and Magneton were the first Pokémon to be reclassified from a single-type (Electric-types) to a Steel/Electric dual-type. This was because, like the Dark-type, Steel Pokémon were not introduced until Generation II, and the Magnemite family were first introduced in Generation I.

To date, there are 6 single-steel-type Pokémon, including Arceus with the iron Plate.

Steel-type Pokémon possess 11 resistances, higher than any other single Pokémon type. They also have a full immunity to Poison attacks. They are highly effective against Ice and Rock-types but have weaknesses to Fire, Ground and Fighting-type attacks.

Steel types are renowned for having the largest amount of resistances defensively, but have a large amount of resistances offensively, too.
