Are you hoping that Fairy type is real?

My thought about this:
I am hoping that it is real but......i am a bit worried that if it does exist that they have to recaluate the hidden power and I won't be able to transfer Pokemon for Gen V and i would have to breed all over again to get good Pokemon. Gamefreak puting more effort in making good pokemon based off of faires to ward off dragons would make up for not being able to transfer pokemon for Gen V though Blissey will be stick with Flamethorwer until a move tutor with Seismic Toss arrive

Do you think the fairy type is real of fake? Please Explain.

I don't really care if it's real or fake, but it's become more difficult to ignore at this point.

It would still be possible to retain the Hidden Power type when transferring over, since the Pokemon would need to be restructured, anyway.

No because its too much work to reclassify old Pokemon as fairy. And if there was a fairy type, it would have been introduce in Gen 5 because Gen 6 started development right after Black and White were done. Surely if they wanted to add a new type at all it would not be during that short gap.

i dont believe it is real. but i hope so. because then sooo many people will hate themselves as they will still buy the games thought they said "i will quit pokemon if this is real" and then theyll give in to alcohol, lose their jobs and families and home and then ill laugh...ok a bit of exaggeration here but still...

Hope it's fake. Being strong against Dark and immune to Dragon is stupid. How are you immune to Dragon anyway? Why does Dark need another weakness?

Can't think of anything

Yes I do. I'm really starting to like the concept.

How so?

That doesn't make any sense.

I'm getting the idea they may localize "Fairy Type" into "Magic Type" for the english versions, assuming the Fairy business is all true. Fairies are known as primarily magical creatures above all else so it fits, and it's less cheesy to boot. Plus if you look at some of Sylveon's moves, they do look like magic tricks.

Magic in folklore and modern fiction has commonly been described as the bane of dragons. Also vice-versa. It can go either way, depending on the exact story.

I really hope so for i want to be able to tranfer my Gengar, my Magnetzone, my shellder i am trying to evolve (I lost my Pokemon B2 so i am fore to hunt dust cloud for a water stone in Pokemon Black since it has hatch in that game) and my larvesta over from it took me hours to breed.

P.S. Larvesta is just in case case Fennekin evos lack the stats/movepool to be of good use. I has hidden power Ice to catch Dragon types off guard and I might be breeding for an Infernape in Pokemon Black because of how many leads it screw over in B2's World Tournament and because it is my favorite starter and favorite fire types.

I'm not hoping it's real. It is real.
