So the Fairy type can kick a Dragon type's butt, yet Steel can't?

So if I can get Sylveon to excrete fairy juice I can throw it on my Steelix and wreck people?

That sounds far dirtier than I think you meant it to.

....Or does it?

I mean, when you consider all of the stories about knights in shining armor slaying dragons, it would make some sense to have Steel types hit dragons for super-effective damage.

Well, when you consider the already-existing type chart, then there's the fact that swords and armor are made of metal, and most dragons in those types of stories tend to breathe fire, and... yeah...

Also, as for Fairy-type (probably) being weak to Steel-type moves...maybe they took the Fae's inherent weakness to iron as an explanation...

I considered Fary's weakness to Steel and Poison being representative of technology and pollution encroaching on magic and the natural world.

Basically the knight's armor protects him from the dragon's non-fire attacks, hence Steel resisting Dragon but weak to fire.

The sword on the other hand, is enchanted with magic, which is what kills the dragon. Hence Fairy beats Dragon.

Bisharp switches into Outrage locked Salamence, swords dance and sucker punch it to oblivion.

To be fair, they're usually enchanted or legendary swords of some description. It's probably where Fairy comes into play in a very loose way.


Ahh, like Excalibur being enchanted by the Lady of the Lake(I think), who was a fairy of some sort, right? It finally makes some sense, and I feel better for it. Go Fairy type!

Yay we're all friends now.
