Fairy Type is a new type, they didnt want to put holy due to religion thing

thats what i heard and sound very possible

Fairy will be a new type. It is weak to Poison and Steel, immune to Dragon, super effective against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting, and Fire and Psychic-type Pokemon take half damage from it.
Sylveon is Fairy-type. Some older Pokemon will be reclassified to Fairy, such as Mawile (Steel/Fairy).
Mewtwo has two new formes, not just one. Both are activated via items.
The professor's English name is Patrice.
The Starter final evolutions are Fire/Psychic, Grass/Fighting, and Water/Dark.
The first Gym is Bug, the second is Fairy, and the fourth is Fighting.
A few attacks will be dual-typed.

But the one RPing as a fighting type pushed her around. Implying a weakness to Fighting

Psh, who needs type balance, anyway? I say we make another that can't even scratch steel, just for good measure.
#56CollinityPosted 5/12/2013 8:18:03 AM
A few attacks will be dual-typed (MAYBE !!!) thats why you saw super effective

Got a direct translation from a reliable translator on BMGf

[09:39] <bluesun> yup
[09:39] <bluesun> first, for several weeks/months on Smash they've been introducing Akiyama eeveelutions
[09:40] <bluesun> such as Leafeon Akiyama, Flareon Akiyama, Eevee Akiyama etc
[09:40] <bluesun> they're usually identified with their type, as in 'The Grass-type, Leafeon Akiyama', which match the types of the original Pokemon
[09:41] <bluesun> (Akiyama being the guy dressed up as the Eeveelution)
[09:42] <bluesun> this week Sylveon Nakagawa moved into the Eevee Akiyama House, apparently from Philadelphia
[09:42] <bluesun> She was asked what type she was, but she wouldn't say yet, so the Smash cast decided to try guessing
[09:44] <bluesun> They state there are exactly 17 types, so it would take too long to check them all
[09:44] <bluesun> So they decide to check types not currently represented by Eevee/an Eeveelution
[09:45] <bluesun> beginning with a type based on a 'special skill' of Sylveon Nakagawa's - to which she brings out a pair of nunchucks
[09:46] <bluesun> Because she's skillful with nunchucks, they decide that she could be a Fighting-type
[09:47] <bluesun> So they have her battle with a martial artist to see if she's a Fighting-type, and she loses and ends up stuffed into a steel drum
[09:47] <bluesun> so they decide that she's not a Fighting-type, because she's useless fighting
[09:48] <bluesun> her next 'special skill' is ice-breaking
[09:48] <bluesun> she splits a big block of ice into two with a karate chop
[09:49] <bluesun> to which the announcer replies "She certainly seems to be quite strong against Ice..."
[09:49] <bluesun> because she is strong against Ice, they decide that she could be a Steel-type
[09:50] <bluesun> and that if she is a Steel-type, then Poison-type moves won't affect her
[09:51] <bluesun> so they have her wear a box around her head, put some stinky shoes in a bag and then pump the smell into her box
[09:52] <bluesun> she does smell it, and starts coughing
[09:52] <bluesun> a text box pops up "It was effective?"
[09:53] <bluesun> then when she keeps coughing for a minute or so, "Was it Super-Effective?!"
[09:53] <bluesun> then the announcer states that they can't figure out her type from just these tests
[09:53] <bluesun> and she leaves

Apparently everyone thinks Pokemon can only use moves that match their types, judging from they way they're talking about the attack on the block of ice.

I think people are misunderstanding this.
Sylveon hit a X2 against Ice-Type, thus the only types it could be are Fight, Rock or Steel.
Sylveon was hit x2 with a Poison-Type attack, so logically, it has to be a new type, since none of the above are weak to Poison.


So it appears it could be a new type. Which given Umbreon was introduced as a new type means it's quite possible with the Eevee line.

Sylveon's attacks were super effective against Ice so this rumour is likely untrue.

They were trying to guess her type and this is a kids show. They're beating us over head with the points in the show, not going into subtleties about different type attacks or abilities, etc.
