The Same Type Attack Bonus damage modifier is an in-game mechanic of the Pokémon series. In the Pokémon series, Pokémon that executed a damaging skill that matched one of their types gets a 1.5x bonus on the skill.

In User Battle Wiki, damage-dealing skills and weapons that match one's type do 1.5x the damage. If a character has an associated element (that is, the character specializes in moves of that type but is not directly that type,) they will receive a lower STAB bonus of 1.25x.
