Poor Dark/Ghost Types

It seems likely that fairy will be super effective against dark and neutral against ghost meaning ghost/dark will finally be hit by something super effectively, destroying their perfect cover.

Sableye, you had a short good run.

Because these Pokemon were just unstoppable monsters to begin with.

-gives his Sableye a big hug- My Sableye will always exist solely in Emerald. He will forever be safe from those damn murderous fairies.

No they won't.

They're already dead.

They haven't revealed all of Fairy's type matchups yet.

But the yet-to-be-proven-false rumor says Fairy is strong against Dragon, Dark and Fighting.

If Fairy was SE against Dark, don't you think that Gardevoir would have KO'd the Hydreigon in the trailer. It survived with a good chunk of HP left.

This sig is significant

Alot of pokemon can be one-shotted easily, that doesn't make them instantly worthless.

Not to mention its only one type that they'd be weak to.

How Fairy-type Pokémon and moves will fit into the battle landscape has yet to be fully revealed. But it is known that Fairy-type moves are super effective against Dragon-type Pokémon! 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!

It's a crafted battle for a promo video. And we know nothing of the move or any of the Pokemon's stats... Isn't it just possible Hydreigon might have had a high Sp. Defense, Gardevoir had a low Sp. Attack and used a weak base power attack?

And, again, the credible rumor has yet to be disproven on anything so far. I have no reason to doubt what he said about Fairy's matchups.
