Before we start freaking out about how "overpowered" Fairy-type is...

Note that Hydreigon took a Fairy-type attack and survived.

Yeah.

It's just one more thing they have to look out for, nothing to lose your heads over.

Then again, the attack was probably coming from a non-ev trained attack.

That means nothing. Maybe it was a really weak-ass attack. Or the opponent had crappy stats.

They probably had debug mode on and the debug mode includes a damage test, and the pokes can't faint.

Yes, such a program does apparently exist. MMO's use it for practice dummy codes.

It was called Fairy Wind. I'm guessing it's similar to Ominous Wind and Silver Wind. Not very strong.

How does any of this imply that it's something to be feared, though? Garchomp is still OP despite the prevelance of Ice-type attacks; why should having yet ANOTHER weakness suddenly mean that this new type is too strong?

>Implying that hydreigon is fully ev trained (wtf does "ev trained" even do in this argument? Even "maxed out SpAtk" would be less stupid to say)
I'd expect much more from a true Pokemon fan

Your comeback makes no sense. I'd expect much more from a troll that's jealous of me.

Ice type lacks fast, powerful killers that can outspeed Garchomp before it waylays them with a fire fang, brick break, or earthquake.

Fairy Type already looks like it has potential with Gardevoir's type retconn'd.

Gardevoir is slow as hell and physically fairly frail. If it comes in on the switch it'll be 2HKO'ed with Earthquake.
