Differences between Type and Format in Scripted Fields

I'm working with Scripted Fields for a while but still didn't really get the difference between the Type and Format. Can someone please explain to me what it means or what I can do with it ?!

Type tells Kibana what type of field to expect, and changes the selection of formats available. You can think of it as a filter for available formats. Formats are client side transformations (ran in the browser - these never make it elasticsearch) that can help make the field more readable.
