Why are people so against Fairy type again...?

My friend is complaining about how a Fairy type is too girly and would ultimately cause the downfall of Pokemon...

People still don't realize the diversity that a Fairy type could have.

I just think Game Freak would be playing with fire if they added Fairy-type right now.

Balance the type chart first. Then we can talk.

QUACK.

80% of people assume Fairy = Tinkerbell.

They need to broaden their horizons.

That, and they don't want any new types. Its this "balance" thing.

The two are not mutually exclusive.

The Fairy type is a meh choice IMHO, but I'm not THAT against it, especially not since seeing a comparison with the Ghost type that many people ignore.

But the newest rumor of the day? It comes with dualtype moves. I'd rather see a Normal-type Sylveon, a Pokemon generation of exactly 52 Pokemon (to raise the number above 700 to 701), loss of compatibility with the fifth gen, and Stealth Ice before even one dualtype move. That's how bad an idea dualtype moves are.

True, but there's no changing the fact that when most people think of fairy, Clefairy and Disney's Fairy's Tinkerbell and friends pop into their mind. Unfortunate, but a factor.

Now if the type was renamed Light or Magic, that could hide the fairy stereotype. With Pokebeach's Mawile as a Fairy type though, I guess it looks more like a Fairy than a Pokemon I'd associate with Light or Magic...

I have no issues with Fairy type.

It's dual type moves that I don't like the idea of.
