All hate aside if this fairy type is real it almost instantly becomes the best

Type in the game

Immunity to dragon

Effective against dragon dark and fighting

While weak against only poison and steel

And only fire and psychic resist it


That's easily a top three typing

Effective attacking type (few resist one of which being the most offensive type in the game which shouldn't be able to do much with said resist)

Low tier weakness

Common immunity

As long as its moves and pokemon dont suck it will be the best typing

And then suddenly Steel becomes a common offensive type to counter it.

Low tier weakness


Said weaknesses cease to be "low tier" if Fairy becomes a common type (and there are two separate Fairy rumors; one doesn't give strengths or weaknesses.)

Technically Dark/Ghost is still the objectively the best defensive type with zero weaknesses and three immunities, but that doesn't mean Sableye is a contender for best Pokemon ever.

True but that doesn't change the fact poison and steel would still be dead weight on lot of pokemon as coverage moves even more so if you get into the battle and they aren't using fairy types. More than anything people are gonna try and take advantage of it's lack of resist than it's weakness

Needs to be weak to Normal also, because they don't believe in Fairies...

Not really. A bunch of resistances is often better than simply having no weaknesses. Realistically, most Steel combinations are better defensive types than Dark/Ghost.

I actually think Normal should resist Fairy attacks.

I could believe Sludge Bomb becoming more viable on certain Pokemon that have it as an option, but I really don't see anyone clamoring to add Steel attacks to any movesets.
