What would the Fairy Type be weakened too an what will it resist?

#1xyzlacticPosted 4/22/2013 4:51:37 AM
Elaborate y'all. I just want to hear some nice ideas from y'all?

I guess I'll start

Super effective against: Dragon, Dark, Fighting

Not- Very effective against: Ice, Grass, Steel, Fairy

Weakness: Dark, Poison, Bug

Resists: Fairy, Dragon, Ghost, Water, Flying, Ground, Fire

Ehh it's resistance represents it resisting the 3 other mystical types dragon ghost and itself while also resisting the 4 elements water, flying, ground and fire

Feedback and your own version is welcome :)

"If we NEED a new type, here's what I think it should have:

Ideally, Ice, Grass, Poison, and Bug would resist it,
It would be SE against Water,
Steel, Grass, Poison, and Bug would be SE,
and it would resist Fire, Fighting, and Ground.

Now we have something SE against the type that deserves the complaints it gets (I agree that Water is slightly OP).
The types that need resistances most now have them.
The types that need SE hits most now have them.
And the types that need to be resisted most are resisted.

Dragon isn't hit for SE because Dragon is already balanced. It's only SE against itself and Ice type moves are common anyway. Also, the only three dragons that don't have another type to add a weakness are Druddigon (since when is Druddigon a problem?), Haxorus (that's what's great about Haxorus), and Kingdra (HOWEVER, Kingdra is Water type, which this new type is SE against).

Also, if there was a WhateverNewTypeGameFreakComesUpWith/Steel Pokemon, it wouldn't have any weaknesses."


This isn't for Fairy specifically, but I can see something else having this.

Very impressive. I really like this idea. Though I wish it would hit steel for super effectiveness x)

Steel already has three weaknesses.
All three of these weaknesses also happen to be very common attacking types anyway. Steel is supposed to be the defensive type.

At least it's neutral against Steel. *shrugs*

The theory is good, but I see no logic to why Fairy would do all that. We need more new types and/or alter the current balance of existing types to meet all those requirements without it being silly.

This. A million times this. Water and Dark need another weakness and Poison needs to be buffed up, in my honest opinion.

It should be super effective against: water, dragon, steel and fighting. They are the most dominating types in the current meta sadly :(

These are my thoughts on a hypothetical Fairy type:

Super Effective vs. Dragon, Ghost, Fighting
Not effective vs. Fairy, Psychic, Steel, Normal

Resists: Dragon, Ghost, Fairy
Weaknesses: Steel
#9wind64aPosted 4/22/2013 9:19:28 AM
Supereffective against:
Fighting
Ghost
Psychic
Normal

Weak to:
Steel
Ghost
Poison

NVE against:
Steel
Grass
Ground

Resistant to:
Normal
Fighting type
Ground
Grass

Immune to:
Dark(they are tricksters themselves)

Just another thought on how it could work.

I support the way another poster had it with a few modifications. I would have it set up like this:

Offensively:
Super Effective against Dark and Dragon
Not Very Effective against Ice, Poison, and Grass

Defensively:
Resists Fighting and Dragon
Weak to Poison and Steel

Basically, the Fairy type would be an anti-metagame type just like Dark and Steel were when they were first introduced (since Psychic was essentially the metagame of Gen I).
