It would be better of with pure Grass. With Fairy type added to it would make it have a 4x weakness against its Poison type counterpart Vileplume which carries Sludge Bomb 99% of the time.
Well, Fairy would have given it an interesting dual STAB and an immunity to Dragon is always going to be a plus. I don't think all counterparts have to be balanced, Gardevoir now beats down Gallade with it's STABs.
I don't care what pokemon get retyped. So long as that pathetic annoying ball of fluff Whimsicott isn't!
I absolutely hate that ****er!!! Not that it being a fairy would put a damper on my team, but still. I'd simply hate if Whimsicott got a second typing. IMO, again ima say it twice so that I don't get burned with replies, *IMO* Whimsicott is good enough by itself. We don't need another Prankster Fairy - we've got Klefki, which is going to be yet another pain not only for poison types, but for anybody going up against a Sand team. My point is, we don't need Whimsicott to be fairy - Whimsicott also doesn't need the typing in itself. If Florges isn't a Fairy/Grass type, then I don't see how Whimsicott can be (besides the fact that its in the fairy egg group.)
Grass/Fairy Lilligant would be nice as well
This. Ghost/Fairy + Levitate is just pure awesomeness.
No I don't think all counterparts should be balanced either, but a 4x weakness would make it so unfair towards Bellossom.
Yah but outside of that, I think Bellossom could have benefited from it Fairy would have made it a reasonable check to Dragons and other Grass types- but it still has a niche as pure Grass with Grass' new found status absorbing abilities- I could see Bellossom becoming a premium status blocker/inflicter
To battle off Dragon types would still be tricky since most would easily counter a Grass/Fairy with their commonly packed up Fire of Ice type moves.
