I like how the type is an attempt on balancing competitive play, though we still don't know all the details on the type.

It would've been fine to not have it IMO, but I've warmed up to it quickly.

Rad Dudesman welcomes it, because it's cool, and those overpowered Dragons needed another weakness.

I didn't believe it because I didn't see that one episode of Smash and assumed it was still a baseless rumor.

It seems implemented well to be good vs dragons, so no complaints.

Mixed bag for me.
+A threat to Dragons, although that makes Ice-types even more useless, being displaced as Dragon-slayers by a type that hits them slightly softer (x2 vs x4 SE) and are an easy switch-in.
+Poison more viable offensively (if the rest of the rumours are true).
-SEness against Dark (if the rest of the rumours are true) is unnecessary, and makes a load of frail (most Gen III and IV) Dark-types even less usable, with Tyranitar left as *the* Dark-type to use, even that mostly due to its stats and ability.
-Flavourwise, I'm still unsure what Fairy encompasses exactly, such that Gardevoir, Jigglypuff, Sylveon and Marill are all Fairies, and one Fairy-type move involves the Moon. Are Pikachu / Lunatone / Cresselia / Moonlight, etc. all to be retyped or left confusingly as they are?

Well, I was liking the idea of a balancing type before it was revealed. I thought that it wouldn't be named fairy type and hoped that few old pokemon would be fairy. Unfortunately, Gardevoir is now part fairy with new weakness and thus, I HATE it.

I loathe Gen V. I am being optimistic for Gen VI,
because I hope they can make a good new feature.
