The Pokémon Scarlet And Violet Types That Are Super Effective Against Oricorio

There are plenty of different and unique Pokémon in "Pokémon Scarlet" and "Violet," and some you really have to work for. While you might not have to work for Oricorio, the Dancing Pokémon, you'll definitely need to work hard at beating Oricorio. While the bird Pokémon doesn't have access to the 1 billion damage move, it can throw players for a loop.


Oricorio has four different forms that make things tricky when fighting it: Baile, Pom-Pom, Pa'u, and Sensu. These different forms come with adorable designs that match the style of dance described in its form name. Oricorio can also change its form by eating different colored Nectar, which is only possible outside of battle.

These different forms also come with their own typing. This changes a few things about the Pokémon, such as how hard certain moves will hit and its strengths and weaknesses. Luckily, as long as you have a type chart handy, and you know the different typings of the dancing bird Pokémon, then finding super effective moves against Oricorio is easy.

Taking on the four Oricorios

According to Serebii, each Oricorio style is part Flying and has a second typing as follows:

  • Baile Style: Fire

  • Pom-Pom Style: Electric

  • Pa'u Style: Psychic

  • Sensu Style: Ghost

The one type of move that's Super Effective against all Styles of Oricorio is Rock. Other types of moves like Electric and Ice are also generally Super Effective, but the second types make each of these types problematic for one Style. Here's a full list of weaknesses against each Style:

  • Baile Style Weaknesses: Water, Electric, Rock

  • Pom-Pom Style: Ice, Rock

  • Pa'u Style: Electric, Ice, Rock, Ghost, Dark

  • Sensu Style: Electric, Ice, Rock, Ghost, Dark

Keep in mind that moves that are the same type deal extra damage if the Pokémon using the attack are the same type –- this is the easiest way to dish out a lot of damage against enemies quickly without having to use items or set up combos. So, to ensure you deal massive damage against Oricorio, use a corresponding Type. Rock works across the board, so a Rock Type is your best bet. Think Diancie, Tyranitar, Carbink, Drednaw, Lycanroc, Sudowoodo, Rockruff, or even Naclstack.
