Dual-type damage misinformation is a phenomenon present in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow, in which a move is said to be "not very effective", or "super effective" when the damage that a Pokémon receives is actually neutral. It was fixed in Pokémon Stadium and the later core series games.

Additionally, if a move is super effective to one type but does not affect a Pokémon due to its other type (e.g. Dig against Charizard; a Fire/Flying type Pokémon), the game will erroneously state that the move missed.

The message that is displayed is taken from a list of damage outcomes which do not result in 1× damage.

If the game runs through more than one of the entries on the list after a super effective, or not very effective move is used, the game will display the message for the latest outcome; for example using a Grass-type move against a Gyarados will cause the game to display the message that it is "not very effective", since Grass 1/2× vs. Flying comes later on in the list.
