It's best to have a diverse team of Pokémon, with types that are capable of countering other Pokémon most likely to cross your path. With turn-based battles changing slighty in Legends: Arceus, you may want to think more about the stats of your Pokémon too.
Additionally, if you know what type of Noble Pokémon or Alpha Pokémon you're approaching, or what type of Pokémon you'll be encountering in the open-world areas of Arceus: Legends, don't forget to switch things up to use this type-knowledge to your advantage!
By all means, keep this chart to hand to remind yourself which Pokémon will prove to be the most powerful in your next battle.
