Are there enough good Fairy types to justify using Poison now?

We don't know.
The only ones that we know are at least decent are Mega Mawile, Mega Gardevoir, and Xerneas. And Mawile is immune to Poison, while Gardevoir takes neutral damage from it.

There were quite a few ret-cons either way, some of them for Pokemon that were (or will become) OU, so...maybe?

Poison is neutral against Psychic.

Many Poison users would be competing against Steels for Fairy killers though.

Azumarill should be pretty good.

And we're assuming that Slurpuff and Aromatisse have terrible stats, but we don't know for sure. Nobody has gotten them evolved yet (trade evolution), so nobody can tell if they're going to have Clefable-like stats or Garchomp-like ones.

Potential Fairy Threats:
Mega Gardevoir (Depends on stat changes)
Sylveon (Depends on whether the Metagame can tolerate walls like it)
Azumarill (Depends if the power creep allows for its bulk)
Slurpuff and Aromatisse (Depends on stats and learnsets)
Klefki (Prankster, but depends on its movepool)
Mr. Mime (lol, jk)

I thought Psychic resisted Poison...
Huh. Still. With Scizor and Metagross, it's unlikely that Poison will be used. Ever.

Is Flabebe's final not a threat, or is it not known?

It's weak on the physical side but has good special defence and sp. attack.
