For example, if a Fairy type uses a Fairy attack on a Fighting/Steel type. If the internet isnt lying to me... A normal Fighting type would be taking 2x damage. Though a normal steel type would be taking .5x damage. Does it balance out for normal damage? Does it follow the first type? ... The second? I'm confused, though that could be because I cannot sleep x.X

Balances out for normal damage.

In a different case, consider Fighting against Steel/Ghost. Steel would have doubled the damage, but Ghost is immune, and Immunity takes precedence, so no damage at all.

EDIT: Basically:

Weakness = 2x
Resistance = .5x
Immunity = 0x

You multiply them.

So Fairy would deal 2 x.5 = 1x

While Fighting in the 2nd example would be 2 x 0 = 0x

Fighting against Steel/Dark? 2 x 2 = 4x

x2 and a x.5 just cancel each other out, so it would be a x1 attack.
