Tyranitar boasts a pseudo-legendary status thanks to its intimidating look and massive attack power, but like any other Pokemon in the franchise, it has weaknesses and resistances trainers can exploit.

Tyranitar is a Pokemon that can crush a mountain with one hand, according to a Pokedex entry. It’s no wonder players are always looking for tips to defeat this powerful Pokemon in the many different games in the franchise.

We’ll cover everything there is to know about Tyranitar, including weaknesses, resistances, and immunities so you can pierce through its powerful armor.

What type is Tyranitar in Pokemon?

Tyranitar is a dual Rock and Dark-type Pokemon. No other Pokemon in the whole franchise shares this very unique type combination, so finding its weaknesses isn’t a simple process.

Beyond its typing, it’s important to note that Tyranitar can learn a wide variety of attacks in mainline games, including Dark, Electric, Ice, Fire, Rock, Normal, and Ground-type moves.

All Tyranitar weaknesses in Pokemon

As a dual Rock and Dark-type Pokemon, Tyranitar has the following weaknesses:

  • Bug
  • Fighting
  • Ground
  • Water
  • Steel
  • Grass
  • Fairy

Tyranitar has a double weakness (x4) against Fighting-type moves, so Fighting-type Pokemon can be important allies in your battle against it.

All Tyranitar resistances in Pokemon

Although Tyranitar has many weaknesses Pokemon players can exploit, it also has the following resistances:

  • Normal
  • Flying
  • Poison
  • Ghost
  • Fire
  • Dark

Tyranitar is also immune to Psychic-type attacks. When battling this Armor Pokemon, you should avoid these types at all costs.

As you can see, the intimidating Tyranitar is nowhere near invincible when it comes to type effectiveness. The Rock and Dark-type Pokemon has a very high Defense stat and can deal massive damage like few Pokemon can. But as long as you stick to Pokemon that are super-effective against it, you won’t have much trouble.
