What would happen if a pokemon were to have the same type twice?

I assume that weaknesses and resistances would multiply like they do with normal dual typing, but how would STAB work? Would you get 2.25x damage? Has anyone ever hacked the game to see how it handles it?

How could something have the same type twice? Like take a double Water type for example. How is it different from single typed Water types? Is it more wet than regular Water type Pokemon out there? It doesn't really make sense.That being said, it would be the same as having a Pokemon with single typing of that type.

IIRC someone here told me once that's how pokemon with a single type work. As in, a Dark type is coded as Dark/Dark

I think in the programming it is like that; like the game reads Pikachu as Electric/Electric IIRC

I'm not saying that it makes sense, I was curious about how the in-game mechanics would work if such a thing were to happen.

Thank you. This is the answer I was looking for, if boring. It's a shame that nothing would really change.
