Type Steel

Steel-type Pokémon (Metal-type in the TCG) 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 only 6 pure Steel-type Pokémon, one being Arceus with the Iron Plate. With that, there are only 5 that are not alternative forms.

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 also have a large amount of weaknesses, including Fire and Water.

As of Generation VI, Steel-types lose their resistances to Dark and Ghost types.
