Why are you guys acting like fairy type completely nerfs dragons

#1gamepimp12Posted 5/20/2013 11:28:44 AM
Yeah they are completely immune to dragon attacks

But they only have a x2 to dragon and no resistances

So unless said fairy is blissey like in bulk it should still have trouble taking on a dragon head own.

Just like how you can't randomly throw out a steel type against Salamence

Hydreigon disagrees.

That could have just been an oversight in the leak.

Oh, I'm not saying Dragons are completely nerfed. Just throwing out corrections.

Hydreigon true but hydreigon isn't really a sweeper but more of a scout flygon used to be, no reason to keep him in on a light type unless its a trap

The Latis don't mind it

Fairy 2x effective on Dragon
Fairy .5 effective on Psychic
Normal Damage. The Latis now lead the dragons in their fight against the Fairies

Don't forget that most (all?) Dragons have a second type and there will (hopefully) be Fairies with some useful second types. Switch in with a Water/Fairy and use Ice Beam. I'm not saying this will be some fail-safe move to KO all Dragons but it's one example of Fairy type giving a distinct edge.

Fairy isn't completely ruining Dragon for the same reason Dark didn't completely ruin Psychic.

It will give them something to worry about though, which is what they needed.

It would seem the people who object to that angle feel emasculated by the idea of cute pixies halting the otherwise formidable outrage of a mighty dragon. This is excellent.

That's because Salamence often packs Earthquake and/or Fire Blast. Dragon-types will find themselves soundly countered by a good Fairy-type if it exists with these type matchups. They'll have to start packing Steel-type moves like Iron Head to get a super effective hit in.

The introduction of a new type with an immunity to an older type is most definitely a nerf for the older type since it means that using moves of that type could give the opponent a completely free switch.
