Fairy type doesn't deserve any discussion, obviously. So I'm going to pretend that ever word said of it is overreacting and taking it too far, regardless of whether it is or isn't.
I mean, who cares about it's implications on battling. A major focal point of the entire community being changed doesn't deserve discussion. I'm going to bet every person who says a word of it must think that Dragons will be eviscerated in the metagame, because I see it said so rarely.
And don't even talk about retroactive changes of Fairy types. I mean, why is the change of two to three dozen pokemon worth discussing? Come on, guys. Let's not try to guess where they might go with the type, when fairy covers quite a large blanket of mons, cute, magical, fantastical, with fairy also covering the winged and flying look.
Don't get me started on that poke your pokemon stuff or the potential changes.
Discussion is worthless unless it focuses completely on things that can be discussed on another board or things we know for a fact. That's how discussion works, right? --- Thinking is overrated. Like Pants.
