If Fairy exist, I just hope Jirachi doesn't turn Fairy/Psychic instead.

I hope you guys are right, though Doom Desire seems like the perfect candidate to change into a Fairy type. -_-;;


If that's the case so would Luster Purge, Flash Cannon, Flash, and any other move that involves attacking with light.


Non-sequitur.

How so? Doom Desire's description talks about attacking with a "concentrated bundle of light," which matches its animation. Luster Purge says, "a damaging burst of light," Flash Cannon, "gathered light energy is released," and Flash... I probably don't need to explain that one.

If Doom Desire "seems" like the kind of attack that would become Fairy-type if it exists, then it stands to reason that those other moves I mentioned are also possible Fairy-type retcon candidates.

If Jirachi became Steel/Psychic I would dance with joy. Because then it would likely be banned.

Any Pokemon that is already dual-type is extremely unlikely to acquire the Fairy type if it's real. The only type I can see ever being replaced by Fairy is Normal, since that's the closest thing we have to a placeholder type. Jirachi's Steel and Psychic powers have been well-established.


Actually in this instance a lot of magically-oriented Pokemon have been previously made Psychic Type just for lack of anything better to make them. Jirachi and Celebi among them.

Perhaps, but they are now among the ranks of Psychics in their powers. It's not like Normal which doesn't have any particular power to lay a claim to. Psychic Pokemon have a tie to mental powers and all that, and it makes little sense for one to suddenly lose their Psychic affinity to become Fairy-type all of a sudden. Normal to Fairy makes for a much easier and likely transition.

Jirachu is already Steel/Psychic

I doubt they will but I can see Clefairy/clefable being fairy type or even mew (since it's a mirage pokemon)


Oh really? You think Clefairy/Clefable, who are already listed and talked about as Fairies in the Pokemon games, especially the Pokedex, could be typed as Fairy?

What the hell ever gave you such an idea?

I'm personally hoping that if they are going to retcon any existing Pokemon by slapping the Fairy type on them that it doesn't end up being any dual type Pokemon.

If they wanna add Fairy as a secondary type to Pokemon like Clefairy, Snubbull or Gothitelle, fine, whatever, go ahead.

But yeah, I think it'd be pretty stupid if they went around changing Celebi, Jirachi or Togekiss (okay, the last one I could maybe understand, but I still don't particularly want it)
