Fairy Types are strong against Dragon, Fighting and Dark, plus given the immunity against Dragon type moves.
I wish they would leave Dark type alone. I am a fan of Dark type Pokémon and now they have the same number of weaknesses as Psychic types. What use to make Dark types cool was that they were immune to most Psychic type attacks. But with Future Sight and Focus Blast, Dark type Pokémon got nerfed, like when poison based moves became no longer super effective against Bug type Pokémon back in the old days. --- (White: 2365-6616-1546) Black: 4212-5139-4024 (White 2: 4771-9057-6478) 3DS FC: 4785-5158-9717

Dark-types also get that buff where they can hit Steel for neutral damage. --- "Murder of the living is tragic, but murder of the idea is unforgivable." - Janus, speaker of the synod

I don't know about you, but the type disadvantage to Fairy makes sense to me.
Plus, they aren't completely useless, as they got a huge buff by not being NVE against Steel types any more. And yes, whether it seems small or not, that's actually pretty huge. --- Aut viam inveniam, aut faciam.
Poison and Steel were given the advantages over Fairy types. I am glad at least Poison is super effective over something other than Grass type Pokémon. Makes me want to throw in a poison type in my team which is rare. --- (White: 2365-6616-1546) Black: 4212-5139-4024 (White 2: 4771-9057-6478) 3DS FC: 4785-5158-9717

Dragons are still going to go rampant with iron head/tail. Player 1: "Sends out Xerneas" Player 2: "Sends out Dialga" Player 2: "Dialga used Iron Head!" "Its super-effective" --- 3DS FC: 1048-8814-6431 Pm me if you want to add me.
Lol My friend was so mad at me for sweeping his team with that. He had two pokemon that had Shell Smash and I was like, okay make them weaker for me. :) I have first strike. --- (White: 2365-6616-1546) Black: 4212-5139-4024 (White 2: 4771-9057-6478) 3DS FC: 4785-5158-9717

And so my precious Steel types continue to be awesome.
Dragons on the other hand? If they're your favorite type, you have my sympathy. ;) --- Currently playing: MMZCollection, Pokemon Black 2 [2538 3598 3001], FE:Awakening, Xenoblade Chronicles, 3DS FC: 2277-7562-5299

Only casuals think Dragons still won't be one of the best types in the game.
Dragon types are great because of their stats (Latios, Salamence, Garchomp, Haxorus), their abilities (Dragonite, Salamence), and their support movepools. Dragon STAB was never amazing, except for Outrage and DM.
The only hit the type took was losing Outrage. If anything, having a Fairy type on your team will help your Dragon type. --- http://pics.wikifeet.com/Lana-Del-Rey-Feet-576987.jpg XBL: AgentMontellana http://media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lyzpf1y3cy1qf6y79.gif
