So what about Electric type's one weakness?

They nerfed Dragon type because it only had two weaknesses, while electric type remains with just one weakness.

Well, electric isn't exactly effective against a bunch of types either.

Electric doesn't dominate the metagame like Dragon does

The metagame is clearly what they had in mind when making the Fairy type

Until Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, Dragon-type Pokémon had only two weaknesses: Ice-type moves and Dragon-type moves. The new Fairy type changes the balance in a big way!

Because aside from not damaging Ground types, Electric types only beat 2 things, and even then, they're really around to cause Paralysis, something that's not gamebreaking.

And until we see what this thing is weak to, it'll only be a matter of time before another type dominates. Hell, IIRC, Water is a close contender, what with all of the buffs it gets.

I'm surprised you're not hiding under a table after a month or two of insisting that there was no way the Fairy type would ever happen.

Dragon also had four useful resistances.
