I hate when people here ask "How is [insert Pokemon] a fairy?

#1SoleEaterPosted 7/8/2013 12:07:15 PM
They're not fairies. They're fairy TYPE.

That is like asking "How is Linoone a Normal? Normal isn't a noun, it's used to describe Linoone, its an adjective. just like Fairy.


How is Hippowdon a ground? He's not the ground, he's ground type.

Gardevoir isn't a fairy. It's a Gardevoir. It has Fairy type.

Fairy =/= fairy type

Proper questions that destroy TC's argument, to be sure, but Sudowoodo is a rock that just happens to look like a tree and Pineco is a bagworm. As for Garchomp being a Dragon-type... he just is.

What do you mean destroy my argument? These agree with my argument (except Garchomp, that actually is a dragon)

Yes, my name is supposed to be "SoleEater" and not "Soul Eater".

I thought your argument was "You can't say 'How is [Pokémon] a [type]?'", when sometimes the question actually makes grammatical sense.

Then your argument is just confusing and meaningless. Zigzagoon can't be "a normal" because "normal" is an adjective. Zigzagoon is a normal animal, however. And fairy is a noun, so "How is Sylveon a fairy?" is a perfectly reasonable question (oh, it can be answered, sure. But it's a question that makes sense.)

What I'm saying is...

Someone asks

"How is Marill a fairy?"

Marill isn't a fairy, there are no fairies in Pokemon. Marill is a Marill, it is just a fairy type.


Technically Dragon types aren't even dragons, they're Pokemon too, but dragon type.

I guess Goldeen isn't a fish.

I guess Geodude isn't a living rock.

I guess Beedrill isn't an insect.

Saying "They're Pokemon" is the biggest copout when it comes to explaining the logic behind typing, etc.
