What type is Bronzong?
Bronzong is a dual Steel and Psychic-type Pokemon. This rare typing is shared only with Beldum, Metang, Metagross, and a few Legendary and Mythic Pokemon.
As you can see, this typing is reserved for very strong Pokemon that you shouldn’t mess with unless you come prepared. Luckily, there are a few weaknesses you can take advantage of in battle.
All Bronzong weaknesses
As a dual Steel and Psychic-type Pokemon, Bronzong is weak against Ground, Ghost, Fire, and Dark-type attacks.
Adding Psychic to a Steel-type removes their weakness against Fighting-type moves. However, that adds new weaknesses against Ghost and Dark-type attacks. Since Dark-type Pokemon are immune to Psychic-type damage, they can be a great asset against Bronzong.
Keep in mind, the Levitate Ability makes every Ground-type attack completely useless, so that’s one less weakness to exploit against Bronzong with Levitate. In addition, the Heatproof Ability makes all Fire-type moves less effective, reducing their damage by half.
All Bronzong resistances
The Steel and Psychic-type Pokemon Bronzong can resist damage from Flying, Normal Rock, Steel, Grass, Psychic, Ice, Dragon, and Fairy-type attacks. Bronzong is also immune to Poison-type damage.
But that’s not all, because Bronzong might have very important Abilities active if you’re facing it in a game like Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Keep an eye out for the aforementioned Heatproof and Levitate abilities.
As we mentioned before, Dark-type Pokemon are the safest bet here. Ghost types can be helpful too but it’s useful to keep in mind that Bronzong can also learn a few Dark and Ghost-type attacks to cover its weaknesses.
