Swift isn't a fairy-type move!?

No, they're not the same thing.

However, if old Pokemon can get their types changed, regardless of whether they keep their old, primary type, why can't moves get their types changed as well? I don't see why not.

Obviously they can because it has happened before. But changing a move's typing is still different since it can only have a single type. The only type that has changed after a long period of time is Curse but that one is understandable. There's no reason to change Swift's typing.

Also Curse.

I'd agree that there's really no reason to change Swift's type, but that doesn't mean it couldn't have happened.

Why would they change it after 15 years?


Bite. Gust.


Both 1 generation later, not 5.


Still a change. The time in between makes no difference. It's been done before. Nothing's really stopping the possibility of it happening again. (I don't really care either way. It's not like Swift is a game breaking move.)

However history remembers me, it shall only remember a fraction of the truth.

Swift seems to be less about magical properties and more about just plain speed (JPN name: Speed Star), though there still appears to be some sort of mystical property that lets some Pokemon learn it (see: Slowbro). Pokemon that can learn Swift tend to have streamlined bodies, and a Fairy-type Swift would have been misleading because it would imply a primarily magical influence.

I'd also like to know where jigglypuff summons stars from

Jigglypuff can't learn Swift.

Why would it be? Fairy-type is moon, not stars.

Who said it can't be moon and stars? They might Islamic, you know, or Nerevarines.

Or... just, you know, the whole "Space is MAGIC" thing that led them to create Clefairy, Lunatone, Solrock, and to an extent Deoxys.
