Avid Pokemon TCG Card collector.
Your idea is good for a fairy but for a playthrough, but Johto has a LOT of Poison Types among the Team Rocket Admins. A 4x poison weakness with moves like Acid and Sludge Bomb would be detrimental if you don't have poison resistant pokemon at that point.
Giving it a early dragon typing from the start prevents the usual 2x weaknesses from gym leaders twice in a row.

Giving it a early dragon typing from the start prevents the usual 2x weaknesses from gym leaders twice in a row.

IFirst and foremost, as I said, this is the first stage of a larger scale rewrite/overhaul of Johto. As a major part of that? Team Rocket is also being overhauled. To reflect its new motivations and story role, their Type speciality has shifted away from Poison towards Dark, Ghost and Ice. Thus, Chikorita's Fairy type gives it an advantageous edge over the Dark-types you will often encounter now throughout this run of Johto, where Dragon would actually be even more disadvantageous.

I also want to point out that a Dragon-type still keeps its weakness to both Falkner and Bugsy (Dragon does not neutralise those Type weaknesses), and Dragon Rage is a move that, simply put... breaks the early game so I certainly am not giving it to the Chikorita line. It also feels antithetical to the line's Dex entries (Chikorita and Meganium defined by their sweet, pacifying aromas). While I wanted to extend the line's offensive capabilities, I do not want to do so at the expense of breaking the lore and flavour of the Chikorita lie. And its Dex entries, general temperament and Meganium's luminescent appearance in New Snap as the face of the game's main phenomena all felt perfectly aligned towards a Fairy-type.

It also, by intent and design, benefits Chikorita in the mid and late game more, giving Chikorita an advantage over Chuck as well as Clair, Bruno, Karen and Lance, as a counterbalance to its impeding weaknesses in the early game. Rewarding a player who kept with Chikorita in spite of the region's seeming bias against it.

I understand why you might prefer Dragon? But I am going at this from a different design angle for an overhauled Johto, and felt Fairy worked the best as a secondary Typing based off of what my new interpretation of Johto involves and what feels in the spirit of how the Chikorita line was designed.
 

Typhlosion​

DISCLAIMER: I will only be looking at Johtonian Cyndaquil, Quilava and Typhlosion here. Hisuian Typhlosion, I may approach on a later date, however.

-While I am keeping Typhlosion's mono-Fire typing in this instance, it will, in its Mega Form, receive Ground as a secondary typing. This is to lean more so into its volcanic influences.

-I would keep Flash Fire as its Hidden Ability, as Cyndaquil and Quilava. However, as Typhlosion, its Hidden Ability would instead become Earth Eater. This is to lean more on its badger design influences as well as a nod to its volcanic motifs and part-Ground Mega, as well as giving it an immunity to one of its major weaknesses for some defensive boons (this would, hopefully, give its base form some individual viability too.

Alright, time for learnset tweaks and changes!

In terms of TM expansion? I'd have the entire Cyndaquil line be able to learn Drill Run and Earth Power, with Typhlosion also being compatible with the TMs for Sandstorm, Thunderbolt and Thunder (the latter two being a nod to the real world phenomenon of volcanic lightning). For Egg Moves? Uhhh... Iron Head, I guess, could be a fun one.

And lastly, there is the Mega Evolution--

#0157[J] - Mega Typhlosion
Mega Volcano Pokémon
Type: Fire/Ground
Ability: Storm Drain - The Pokémon draws in all Water-type moves. Instead of taking damage from them, its Special Attack is boosted by one stage.*
  • HP: 78
  • Attack: 120 (+36)
  • Defense: 101 (+23)
  • Special Attack: 130 (+21)
  • Special Defense: 85 (+0)
  • Speed: 120 (+20)
  • Total: 634
* To explain Storm Drain, its Japanese name is "Power Priming". Among the definitions of priming it is described as to "inject extra fuel into (the cylinder or carburettor of an internal combustion engine) in order to facilitate starting" and, as a noun, is used to provide the explosive charge of firearms. Leaning into the volcanic aesthetic, Mega Typhlosion is using Water attacks to "prime" its explosive energy reserves, thus giving it (similar to fellow volcano 'mon Volcanion) a steam--propelled element to its design.

Isn't Roughhouse basically Play Rough?
It's actually intended as an "upgraded" version of play Rough, as a Fairy-type version of Close Combat. It's wholly intentional, because it's the idea of being an "evolution" of Play Rough. Similarly to how Pokémon evolve, moves too can "evolve", theoretically.
 

Spider-Phoenix

#ChespinGang
Another region form I've been thinking about:

A Dreepy regional form that's not a ghost but actually a water/dragon type, with a regional Dragapult looking like a mix of dragon with a javelin.
 

Tinkaton

Tinkaton No 1 Gen 9 Pokemon
For Gen X, I would Love to see a (Convergent) Male Tinkaton Line With the weapon being either an Axe, Pickaxe, or Katana instead of hammer

Hopperbender:
Gender-Bender Pokemon
Type: Fairy
appearance is based on a frog with half of the body blue and the other half pink with lipstick-like markings around half of the mouth.

Gender: Unknown
Ability: Bi-Gender: The user is treated as both male and female. Boosts offensive stats when battling Male Pokemon or boosts Defensive stats when battling Female Pokemon.
 

Tinkaton

Tinkaton No 1 Gen 9 Pokemon
Also I would like to see Pokemon that looked like it came straight out of Pretty Cure.

One example is a Grass/Fairy or Fairy/Ground Pesudo Legendary Line Based on Flappy or Choppy from Splash Star

I think for a Fire/Fairy Pokemon, Most likely a spicy food pokemon
Delphox should've been Fire/Fairy. It is a witch, and it would've been a great way to introduce the new type by having one of the starters have the type.

Speaking of starters, I have an idea for a regional variant of starter Pokemon which flips their primary instead of secondary typing as a foil to the Hisui starters. Some basic ideas
  • Sprigattito line: Dark-Dark/Fairy
  • Chimchar line: Fighting-Fighting/Psychic
  • Mudkip line: Ground-Ground/Ghost

Dex Entry 1- This Pokemon is said to be an abandoned book that comes back to take vengeance on people who refused to read the stories within. Curiously at some points when they have been read the words inside change and give knowledge from beyond.

Moves
Returned Book- (Ghost)-65BP (Special) 5PP- The Pokemon does damage and then Switches out.

Forbidden Knowledge- (Ghost)- (Special)- 5PP- 30% accuracy- One hit KO move but does not affect Pokemon with Unaware or other Ghosts.

Paper Cut- (Grass)- (Physical)- 10PP.- Does 20HP damage and lowers the targets defence by 1 stage.

Supernatural Storm- (Ghost) (Special) 110BP- 30% accuracy- Deals damage and will always hit if fog is active.

New Abilities

Extraordinary- Ghost moves this Pokemon uses can damage Normal Type moves

Wisdom- When using physical moves the Pokemon with this ability can use its special attack instead of a physical but attacks are 20% weaker.

Appearance- Looks like a Book with traits from Shuppet
