    In order to focus this particular pertinent piece of Pokémon news, I have opened this thread for sole discussion of the new 18th type, the Fairy-type

    Known Pokémon

    Sylveon - Fairy-type

    Flabébé - Fairy-type

    Jigglypuff- Normal/Fairy-type

    Marill- Water/Fairy-type

    Gardevoir - Psychic/Fairy-type

    Discuss it all here, type effectiveness, Pokémon you wish to have and so forth

    I would like Volbeat and Illumise to both gain the type, I hope they will hold back a bit with more retypes of Pokémon like Marill though. The retyping makes only sense to me because of the egg group but other than that, not really.

    I don't know if this actually contributes to any discussion, but it'd be pretty cool if the regional pseudo-legendary were a Fairy-type. Kind of like how we got Tyranitar in Gen II.

    To be honest, I could see most - if not all - of the Pokémon in the Fairy egg group to be retyped into Fairy (or rather gaining the Fairy-type), especially the Normal-types. Others that I could see are Misdreavus/Mismagius and the pixies to name a few.

    I was thinking that Fairy could resist Psychic or vice-versa and weak to Dark.
    I want also to see Castform as part Fairy-type since it is in the Fairy Egg Group. (I'm not saying that it is because of that. :D ) Water/Fairy, Ice/Fairy, Fire/Fairy when transformed, how cool a perfect Pokemon to be a weather fairy. (How about Rock/Fairy in Sandstorm?) So much excited.
    I'm also glad that Marill got a boost as well as Gardevoir and Jigglypuff.

    That would be nice. I wonder when we will see the first Dragon/Fairt, I don't think it will be this Gen sadly, but I would like to be suprised

    As long as Pikachu does not become a fairy type, but if I had to pick I'd say Snorunt and Glalie, not because it would have great coverage against Dragon types, but because Snorunt can fit the Fairy category & having Glalie as a Fairy type will shut the "Fairy types are too girly" haters up

    Fairy is either 2x effective against Dark or it's neutral. We know this because in the trailer Gardevoir uses Fairy Wind on Hydriegon and it's Supereffective so if dark resisted fairy the attack would of been neutral

    I'm thinking that the Clefairy line, Chansey line, Audino, Togepi line, Snubbull line, the Sinnho Pixies and Plusle and Minun could all possibly get retyped. If GF think any of the older Pokemon need Fairy type then this is their only chance to retype

    Love the idea, although Dragon lovers are gonna hate

    I'm still not seeing how any of the announced Fairy Pokemon are even remotely fairy-like.

    Jiggypuff and Marill aren't Tinkerbell-type fairies, of course, but they also don't resemble any kind of fairy-like legendary creature I've ever heard of. They're just adorable spheres that evolve into rabbits. But then again, the Fairy Egg Group isn't exactly fairy-like either, so I guess Game Freak probably isn't going to lean too heavily on typical-looking fairies.

    Well I dont think any legendaries will be retyped.. or anything with two types already.
    Clefairy is a definite fairy type..
    I just hope they are not retyping all all cute pokemon to part fairy, which appears to be what they have done with marill. (Fairy egg group is not really a valid argument, not everything in dragon egg group is a dragon type)

    Not even the Sinnoh pixies. There are fairies in design

    Honestly (and ive been waiting for this topic)
    I am really not a fan of this new type. At All.
    What next ? Spellcaster? Warrior?

    But with regards to the topic i do believe a hell of a lot will be gaining this type
    For example Ralts and its Chain.
    Togepi, Igglybuff, Cleffa's Chain
    Skitty and Delcatty
    Some legendaries most likely would recieve the title too. Like Celebi,Jirachi and Victini

    I guess my only wish is for Togepi to get the Fairy type.

    Well this and making ice to resist Fairy (to make it if ever so slightly better defensively) or be SE against it just because I love Ice type and I want it to get better, tho this is a very stupid reason.

    I am just a bit hesitant that they would change legendaries in any way...
  15. mtie123

    My guess would be that Fairy will be either the last type inroduced or another won't be introduced for a long long time

    I understand the hesitance. I think the pixies are the only one who fit into the fairy mold when it comes to Ledendaries imo and due to the not having a second type it would be easy to implement. I just hope Xerneas doesn't get Fairy typing if i'm honest because i think it Going to be Steel/Ice or something

    I wonder if fairy will be a defensive type like most steel and rock type Pokemon our mainly offensive like dragon and electric and, if it's offensive what kind will most moves be either physical or, special,probably special

    I think the same
  18. Regality

    Regality Digital King

    Yeah, Fairy type would fit them.. We shall see!
    But me too, if Xerneas gets fairy type.. I just don't know. I am personally going for Grass/Ground..
  19. Cutty

    Cutty Forever now

    If Clefairy is not retyped into Fairy Im gonna laugh hard... It could be Clefable...

    Other old pokemon that would possibly be Fairy... Mawile, Banette n Jynx or Mr Mime...

    Im hoping more new fresh Fairy pokemon though...

    I'm hoping no dual typed pokemon get fairy as a swap.
