Because that's what everyone here is implying. "True counter to dragons" "bad type to introduce" "no more metagame" "no dragons learn good steel or poison so dragons dead blah blah"
Latios packing CM/Recover/DragonPulse/Surf could never touch Steel type then. Why was steel introduced again to break so much metagame? Now i get people's worry about everything metagame. Gfaqers only care about types' SE, NFE and immunity to create their own metagame
Exactly. Most dragons can use Surf or Fire Blast or something else. Coverage moves got so crazy and Dragons are so well known to be "kings of elemental moves/coverage/whatever". Suddenly not having Steel or Poison and having their stab blocked kill them? Lol.
People here overvalue weakness by alot. Seriously, they think Grass is a bad defensive type because they have the most weaknesses. >_>
It's weak to Bug, Fire, Flying, Ice and Poison, two of which are pretty common in the metagame and one of which is still used notably. Those aren't great weaknesses to have and thus it gets classified as bad defensively.
At least this is true. It will be spammed even less (which is good)
And we're already assuming Fairies then can do something to the outrage users (we don't know any Fairy moves yet or what they may do. I think it's safe to assume they'll get reliable offensive moves. If they get Stone Edge and Focus Blast equivalent instead..)
