Dark

The Dark-type is one of the two elemental types introduced in the second generation of Pokémon. In Japanese, rather than being called Dark-type, it is known as the Evil-type. Pokémon belonging to this type are categorized in it either for their lifestyle or means of attacking. Furthermore, the Dark-type got implemented to balance out design oversights of the first generation.

It is to note that before Generation 4, all damaging Dark-type moves were categorized into special attacks, while afterward being split up into the physical and status categories too – depending on the move.
