just add the multipliers up for anything not neutral. it results in a number and theres the x weakness/resist.

honestly the mechanics of the numbers don't even matter. just the fact that the first type means more than the second type. so yes, the normal/flying types all need to switch places etc.

The dual-type moves is also interesting and could run on the same type of mechanics for STABs, up to a whole huge number of damage, or nearly zero depending on the type matchups.

guaranteed not to happen this gen, but there's always next time.

Sableye is primarily a zombie like, physically stable creature, thus primary Dark and only secondary Ghost.
Spiritomb is an evil spirit, tough physically unstable, thus primarily Ghost, secondary Dark(evil)


Wow this entire time I thought they were both Ghost/Dark. >_>

Which I didn't like because Dark/Ghost rolls off the tongue easier...and sounds cooler (it even makes grammatical sense).
