Until late last year, I did not know any of dark's weaknesses, or Dragon's resistances.
I did not know until reading this topic about ghost and fighting.
I didn't know about STAB until last year, despite playing from GSC.
I didn't know gengar was a poison type until last year.
I still don't know what type Drapion is!!!


Neither do I!

I think it's Poison/Dark...? I don't even know!


It's poison dark. I only remember because I started in diamond, so he was the first E4 for me.

I learned about EV raising (though that it was just matter of luck), the impact of Physical/Special (yeah...) and STAB moves (yeah...) in the Black and White generation... so very late.... and I had played one game of each generation before....

Maybe I know what they are but just don't know the acronym. What are STAB moves? I've also played one of each Gen except for Gen 3 but I don't recognize that acronym.

Same Type Attack Bonus. When an Electric type uses an Electric move, for example, it gets 50% bonus to damage. Applies to any time a Pokemon has a type that matches their move.

I think the term was officially introduced in the Pokemon Stadium 2 academy thing.
