Steel types can be rather unrevealing...They're quiet and mysterious, and a few can have a tendency to cry.
In battle, they're good for defensive purposes.
A less common and less used name for the steel type is the weapon type. I used to classify the weapon type as separate from the steel type, but that became too messy.
The symbol of the steel type is a sword.
Strong against: Ice, Rock
Weak against: Water, Electric and itself.
- steel wing (steel/flying)
- metal claw
- various other sword moves. The names of these moves depends on the magica.
