Steel

The Steel-type is one of the two elemental types introduced in the second generation of Pokémon. They mostly consist of metal-coated Pokémon. Like the Dark-type, the Steel-type got implemented to balance out design oversights of the first generation.

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