Fairy type - weak to Steel and Poison

Makes sense.. Fairies being nature's allies etc.. This might also make Poison a better offensive type. But Fairies being immune to dragon? IDK about that..

Maybe it's because dragons and magic(fairies) dun mix well?
But I agree with Poison and Steel weakness making sense.

Nobody uses poison and steel moves. They might as well be weak to nothing.

...it really seems like they were trying to improve their offensive capabilities.

Gee, I wonder why they aren't used much.

1. poison and steel types aren't that strong offensively.
2. Their direct attack moves aren't well distributed amongst other types with stronger offenses.
3. Poison and steel moves aren't that strong anyway. Especially without STAB.

Which might mean Fairy might be a strong defensive type. Weak only to unpopular types and immune to Dragon.. !@#$%^

Gunk Shot is 120. Iron Tail is 100. Iron Head is 80. Saying poison and steel moves will still be useless in gen 6's meta(assuming Fairy is true) is like saying Donphan has no use for Ice Shard, or Cloyster with Rock Blast. Screw STAB, if it's SE it's gonna hurt.
