Flying Press Coba resistance?

4 votes

We all know the popular dual-typed attack that is Flying Press. Fighting/Flying-type damage is great. Take the likes of Sawsbuck and Abomasnow down with ease.

But with this dual-type move, I have some questions. When a Pokemon that is weak to Flying Press is holding a Coba Berry (which weakens super-effective Flying attacks), does it activate when Flying Press is used on the holder? If I had to guess I'd say no, since we already know STAB is only considered for the Fighting type, but who knows. There's the off chance it does count.

The Coba Berry wont work because Flying Press' Flying type is merely a secondary effect, rather than an actual dual type.
Flying Press' actual type is Fighting so only a Chople Berry would work on it.

Flying Press is a Fighting type move so no the Coba Berry doesn't work.
