Strong and... different. Like each one had some weird cross elemental ability or something. From what I gather, it's like... an advanced version of rock, paper, scissors or something. Fire beats plant but is weak to water, water beats fire but is weak against the plant, plant beats the water but is weak against fire. Only there's a lot more than that. Even with my combat tactics training, would take more study to understand the intricacies of it all.
