Dual types shouldn't be changed.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

IMO, if anything, it will become Psychic / Fairy, not Steel / Fairy - not that I see it becoming the fairy type...

This.

Adding a secondary type is fine. Changing an existing type is kind of a dick move. And not to pull the "tradition, against change, blah blah" card, it's also unprecedented.

I actually disagree. I think a lot of the old psychic legends make more sense as fairies, since that's what they were based upon. To me, Steel/Fairy makes more sense for Jirachi. I hope they change this up, and if nothing else it'd do two things:

1: It'd throw the competitive community for a loop as they have to relearn stuff. Always feels good for us casual players to see them panic.
2: It'd stop people from saying "They won't do this" or "They won't do that". You guys said "they won't have fairy type", yet here we are.

Jirachi's (and Celebi's, and Victini's) Psychic powers have been well-established in the canon. It wouldn't make sense if they suddenly stopped being adept psychics. I think it's very telling that all three older Pokemon that acquired the Fairy type are previous mono-type Pokemon.

I wouldn't bet on existing dual-type Pokemon dropping a type for Fairy.

Jirachi and Victini's signature move is not psychic type, i think their psychic type was added as being the "mysterious" type before, so is really not a problem if they change types.

I don't think Celebi has a signature move.

Those are two extremely bitter and immature reasons.

True, but I am a rather petty person.
