Why do so many people want so many pokemon to be fairy?

Please don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing Fairy type or talk down on imagination. It's just, if so many old pokemon are fairy, it kind of loses the novelty. I know a lot of Pokemon could fit the bill, but do they really need the type?


Opinions?

Some because people feel they fit the typing, some because of the misguided notion that making a Pokemon this type makes it OU and then everyone will respect and fear it.

Then some are just jokes.

I think giving random small and fluffy Pokémon the Fairy typing has become even more popular than GEN III REMAKES CONFIRMED, and yes the capital letters are necessary.

I didn't think there were joke ones weaved in there. Good point.


But fairy type isn't going to automatically make something OU

They probably are looking at anything fairy like + The fairy egg group. I want Raichu to be fairy, Zoroark to get Moonblast, else wise, I don't care what old ones become fairy type or not.

Hence, "misguided".
