People are completely overreacting to the Fairy type.

Fairy type is too girly, they're feminizing Pokémon!

The Fairy type makes Pokémon feminine as much as the Dragon type makes Pokémon masculine. More specifically, not at all. There have been cute Pokémon and badass Pokémon from the start, and there have been very few complaints of it being "too girly" or "too manly".

It's the end of the Dragon type!

Dragon will almost certainly still be one of the most dominant types in the metagame. An additional counter in the form of a small number of Pokémon (even less will be competent in battle) will serve to slightly weaken Dragons, but not gimp them.

For me, it's not impressive, per say. I'm interested in finding out the other Fairy types, their specific type matchups, and how they will impact the metagame.

I'm kinda hoping for Xerneas to be Fairy and Yveltal to be Dragon.

What I find most annoying about it is how people seem to think everything should be Fairy type now. I've heard suggestions to change the type of, or give a Fairy evolution to, at least 100 Pokemon at this point, it's ridiculous.

no one can deny that fairy has negative connotations in today's society. it's quite simply a bad move on NoA's part to allow this translation to pass through
