Although Pokémon in other games can have two types, Pokémon in Pokémon Shuffle have only one type. Certain types are Super Effective against others (dealing x2 damage), and some Not Very Effective (dealing x.5 damage).

In most cases, the player should aim to use Pokémon that are Super Effective against the opponent. The Optimize button will automatically choose three highest damaging Pokémon and one random Super Effective Pokémon with a Mega Stone, or one random Pokémon with a Mega Stone if no Super Effective Pokémon is found.

Here is a useful type chart for determining type matchups:
