What type is Medicham in Pokemon

Medicham is a dual Psychic and Fighting-type Pokemon. Since Psychic-type attacks are one of the few weaknesses Fighting-type Pokemon have, this type combination can bring confusion to some trainers.

It’s also a very rare type combination shared only with Gallade and Mega Mewtwo X in the whole Pokemon franchise.

Both Medicham and Mega Medicham made appearances in the Pokemon anime.

Medicham has very well-balanced Stats, with Defense and Sp. Defense being its highest alongside Speed. Dealing super effective damage with STAB is the way to go if you want to end the battle quickly. But bulky Pokemon that deal neutral damage can also take Medicham down with ease.
