Fairy type is the new Gen 1 Psychic type

Answer this question: would slapping a Fairy type onto ANYTHING make it much better than it is?
If the answer is yes, then it's like the Gen 1 Psychic type.

I can't think of a single pokemon that wouldn't benefit from a fairy typing.

No because it would be weak to steel and poison.

This. lol, fairy only looks OP because it's good against the two best types in the game fighting and dragon.

Not really. If it was the new Gen 1 Psychic type, it would have no types that resist it and basically no weaknesses outside of 3 extremely weak attacks.

Fairy only looks powerful because what was good before it came around (like gen 2 dark) in reality, when the metagame adapts and Dragons and Fightings are no longer the be all end all, they will not be all that special. Good, sure, but not special.

lol no.

Gen 1 psychics were broken.

Fairy won't be.

Pretty much. I'm glad Steel is so effective against it in exchange for losing its resistances to Dark and Ghost, and Poison is getting the buff it needs. Now every team with Dragons is going to have a Poison-type to counter Fairies.

Are Lick and Pin Missile the strongest Steel and Poison moves in this Gen? Unless they are, it's not even close to the same thing as Gen 1 Psychic.
