Since the Fairy type is basically confirmed now, how will its strengths and weaknesses be justified? Why is Fairy strong against Dark, Dragon, and Fighting and NVE against Fire and Psychic? And why is it weak against weak to Poison and Steel and immune to Dragon?
Already justified type advantages and disadvantages: Fire is strong against Grass because it burns grass. Water is strong against Fire because it extinguishes Fire. Dark, Bug, and Ghost are strong against Psychic because they are common fears. Ice is strong against Dragon because dragons are cold blooded. Fighting is strong against Dark because honor beats trickery. Etc. Etc.
How do you guys think the Fairy type will be justified in the type chart? --- Love me long time.
Iron is folklore fairy kryptonite. Poison makes sense as a weakness for most types, and need it for balance. Fairies commonly provides ways to kill dragons in stories- enchanting weaponry and all that. Quite a lot of fairies are also rules over dragons. Dark can't handle fairies bevause fairies are too tricky to be tricked. Fighting can't handle fairy because fairies are masters of attacking the mind.
As for the ones that resists Fairy: Fire: Certain fairies were believed to hide from fires. Psychic: Can resist the fairies mind tricks.
