3 resistances, an immunity, and it might as well only have one weakness because no one uses poison as an attacking type, and on top of that most of the good fairies are all walls

What was GameFreak thinking

Maybe people should start using poison as an attacking type is probably what they were thinking. Pokemon like Gengar, Nidoking, Roserade, Toxicroak all have a very good reason to run a poison move now.

'Come fight beside me,' I said to myself, and although it doesn't make sense, I held my own hand as a small sign of trust, and together I made my defense.

Finally a reason to use poison. Sludge Bomb is having a blast.

The entire point is to get people using poison (and to a lesser extent, steel) type moves. A good attacking type isn't necessarily about how many types it hits, it's all about what you need to hit.

Wow, and why does no one ever complain about steel types? Look at their resistances.

Are you aware of how crazy Scolipede has become with Speed Boost and an increased attack stat?

My Pangoro with Poison Jab laughs at fairies.

If he wasn't so slow he would ._.

I don't think Game Freak really was thinking that hard, but regardless...

3 resistances and 1 immunity is enough to make you think a type is overpowered defensively? Yikes, I'd hate to see what you think of Ghost and Steel...
