Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Does the damage of a single attack depend on the type of the Pokemon?

For example I have a TM24, namely Thunderbolt. If I teach this move to a Pokémon which is not an electric type, will it do the same damage? Let's say I have a Raichu and Kadabra at same level with same stats. If I teach Thunderbolt both of them, do Raichu and Kadabra do the same damage? Is the type of a move important for the type of a Pokémon? I ask this, because I like to teach different types of moves to my Pokémon.

No. There is something called a Same Type Attack Bonus, often called STAB. If a Pokemon uses an attack whose type matches one of the Pokemon's types, the attack is powered up 1.5 times.
