Fairy type doesn't make sense

#1AmphetaPosted 5/14/2013 9:46:39 AM
I don't know why everyone is buying this. They take it so far looking at sylph for sylveon at wikipedia this doesn't mean s****. I played games like Tales of Phantasia and Sylph was a wind monster. There is no new comfirmed types. Sylveon is obviously a Flying type.

You make it sound like the name is the only reason people think Fairy-type is real.

It makes as much sense as Dragon being a type or Ground and Rock being two different types.

It's Sylveon not Sylpheon. Sylvan is a more general term that can be applied to some fairies.

Clefairy has "fairy" in it's name and it's a normal type. Your point?

I just find it annoying that people automatically go for Sylph when Sylvan is closer.

This. especially everyone parroting the "Sylveon is a flying type because Sylph is an air spirit hurr" thing. From looking around various forums, that and Sylveon's colours being somewhat reminiscent of the flying type gym leader were apparently the main reasons why people thought that.

The fact that someone who correctly predicted the existence of Parabolic Charge and the English names of the four latest Pokémon says there will be a Fairy type.

Clefairy is not an evolved eevee

Flareon has Flare (Fire)
Vaporeon has Vapor (Water)
Joltion has Jolt (Electric)
Espeon has Esp (Psychic
etc.

My point is that Sylveon has Sylv or sylph giving a hint of what the type might be.
