The Arcane type (Japanese アーケインタイプ Arcane-type) is a fanon Pokemon type.

The Arcane type shares much similarity with the Psychic and Love types. Arcane-type, in fact, can be described as a combination of the two, since it resembles wisdom-- intelligence based on weighing between both logic and emotion.

In Shadow Inferno's depiction of the Arcane-Type, the type more closely resembles a more magical orientated type, and centralizes around Pokemon with attributes relating to being able to channel energy or possess access to realms beyond the standard one. Most of the Pokemon retyped are either Psychic, Ghost or Dark-Type. The Type is typically associated with moves like Curse and Mystical Fire.

Shadow Inferno's Type Matchup

Arcane is depicted as a bit of a mixed type, serving primarily to dampen the Fighting-Type and also boost the Dark-Type after the Fairy-Type had nerfed it. It also provides a bolster to the Steel-Type giving it a new type to be effective against as well as being resisted by the Dragon-Type, a rarity in Pokemon. Additionally the Type is unique in that it mutually resists the Psychic-Type.
