How would you react if there is a Fairy type?

I personally like New types but fairy type seems a little...
I'd at least like them to base it off something that actually is real, but I think the new eevee evo is a flying type. Sylveon seems like sylph and while I see the connection to fairies aren't Sylphs also Wind, or flying, spirits? (I think...haha) It could also be a new take on ghost types... I honestly don't know, but I generally would welcome new types as long as they had a strong presence, equal weaknesses/advantages, and a decent moveset. I don't particularly like dark or steel because I don't feel they have that great of movesets.

I don't know if this was mentioned in this thread, but could it be possible that the fairy type is the "light" type people have wanted?

not exactly my first choice for a new type (sound type makes more sense to me), but I would welcome a new type. I trust GF to balance the type as best as they can. I doubt it would cause the type chart to become more inbalanced

I'd start making a laundry list of fairy based nicknames. So far I've got:

Cozmo
Wanda
Tinkerbell
Sugar Plum
Tooth
Oberon
Titania
Puck
and Ariel


Y U FORGET NAVI? D:<


As for my reaction on any new type whatsoever, it will depend on its impact on the type chart.

I could care less either way.

It would be nice to add some variety, though - we've had only 17 types for about 10+ years now...


Yeah.
Only 17.


Well, come on. It's been long enough to memorize all 289 matchups. It's not hard. Most of them are common sense.


There aren't 289. There are 17 possible attacking types. There are 153 possible defending type combos. Thus, there are 7 * 153 = 1051 possible matchups.

Be happy that there's a new type, no matter what it is.

Laugh at the people who didn't think there'd be a new type.


Cry that it's not Light type.

...There's something I just find very odd about hearing the complaint of "ONLY 17"

17 is quite a fair amount. A lot of games still stick with less than 10.

...Interesting choice of name...Hopefully it doesn't have a lot of resistances or weaknesses.
And I really hope it has an advantage over dragon types, because I would be all over that.

Needs more Ice type, and Dragons are the devil.
