Your reaction: Normal is SE against Fairy

I prefer the idea of Normal resisting Fairy. It gets a resistance to cancel out it's fighting weakness, so it's a perfectly balanced type in terms of resistances (1 immunity, 1 strength, 1 weakness) I don't think it needs an offensive buff.

Normal SE fairy makes sense, when you think about Peter Pan. And I might remember to have heard it somewhere else:

If you (normal) don't believe in the existence of fairies (fairy) a fairy will die. it gives the normal ones an upper hand against fairies

Bump for more opinions!

Personally I agree with what other posters have been saying. Seeing a move like Tackle do super effective damage would be broken. A resistance (or immunity) against Fairy would be better, if it did in fact receive a boost.

It really doesn't make sense for Normal to be super effective against anything since it's the "typeless" type. Normal being SE on Fairy makes about as much sense as Normal being SE on Dragon.

Then it also shouldn't be weak to fighting then, as that contradicts what you are saying. However, I agree with you.

Half the poison type moves have Acid on their name.
Steel is immune to poison, yet acids can oxide most metals.
Ever tried pouring sulfuric acid on iron? Iron definitely is not immune to it...

So, it doesn't have to make much sense or be very logical...

Somehow it's called normal, yet most normal pokemon can use almost any elemental attack there is !

Bowser is a Tarasque and Magmar is a legend

Normal is already a great type, it doesn't need another strength.


It has some good POKEMON, but as a whole it falls short.
