Fairy type?

#1LordTrinenPosted 7/20/2013 12:02:05 PM
Haven't been keeping up with the latest Pokémon news. Just heard about the new Fairy type. Any word on its strengths/weaknesses?
#2ecylisPosted 7/20/2013 12:03:02 PM
It's strong against Dragon
Probably other things
That's all I know

The only confirmed information we have on it is that it's super-effective on Dragon type.

All we know for sure is that it's strong against Dragon.

We have a reliable source saying it's also strong against Dark and Fighting while weak to Steel and Poison, but this is not confirmed.

The only confirmed information we have on it is that it's super-effective on Dragon type.

Also, it's confirmed that Flying and Dark take at least neutral damage from Fairy.

In addition to that, Fairy is probably weak against Poison.

Yes.

SE on Dragon is stated. Weak to Poison is assumed from Smash.

Generation (pi)(i).
When you see this, raise e to the generation and add 1. Social experiment.

Interesting. Should provide some extra balance, provided we get some strong Fairy type attacks to go with it.

I remember the old Red and Blue days when Psychic types dominated everything. Their only weakness were Ghost and Bug but there really weren't any strong Ghost/Bug type moves. Let's hope that doesn't happen again.

It's also likely Super Effective against or resistant to Ice, based on the Smash testing.
