What the heck beats fairy type?

I mean it (fairy) being weak to poison and steel, but strong against dragon, fighting and dark doesn't make any sense.

Makes just as much sense as a living pile of purple sludge.

Please do not be concerned if you encounter any screaming aliens. The screams are how they communicate. Really! I promise.

Dragon and Fighting were overpowered and needed a nerf.

Dark... Eh, I guess it's a fair trade for Steel losing its resistance to it.

MettanAtem, yeh you gotta point, but there usually is some sort of pseudo-logic to these games.

But, for that matter bug being strong against psychic never made sense either, so, eh whatever.

You know, Fey usually avoid urban population, so Poison and Steel are right out. `_^

The typing never made full sense.

I mean, Fighting is weak to Flying, Psychic, and Fairy... In the land of Pokémon, Chuck Norris can be taken down by birds, nerds, and Tinker Bell.

Bugs are one of the biggest fears in the world (along with darkness and ghosts) and psychic is in a way a representation of the mind. Hence fear > mind

Of course, the reason why Fairies are good against Dragon is, quite literally, "Magic!".
It's the best way to slay a dragon: Magic!
It's the best way to protect yourself from the dragon's breath: Magic!
