Possible ideas for badass fairy types?

we know that's not the case, or else Ninetails would have been retyped to Fire/Fairy.

I'm not seeing how this makes sense.

"In their original incarnations, fairies were not cute"

"Outside of disney, fairies are badass"

Oh, come on guys. Youve all been singing this tune since fairy type was announced. The game is out now, and the list of fairy types is in. What is it going to take to convince you that the monstrous soul-crushing fairy badasses of european mythology is CLEARLY not what nintendo is going for?

I love SMT as much as the next guy, but there domes a time to admit that the ship has sailed. Fairy is officiallythe pink creampuff type, with maybe two exceptions.

This.

Types tend to be consistent. Those soul-crushing monsters would be nothing like any of the current Fairy-types at all.

Dragon/Fairy with decent stats could be awesome. It does have a weakness to one of its own STABs, but it's immune to the other STAB and it gets Dragon's normal resistances on top of that...

Most of those would fit in the Ghost type instead.

Dragon/Fairy

Classic fairy tale dragon. Big, scary, kidnaps princesses, lives in a cave full of treasure.

Fairy being weak to Steel clearly shows that Game Freak had mythology in mind to some extent while creating the type.

Modern American fairy tales are. But if you look at the original ones? Nope, not cute, or for children even.

Fairy tales are actually nightmare fuel used to (possibly) teach lessons. Only the cleaned up versions of fairy tails are cute. Or to put it another way:

Mawile: what real fairy tails would look like as a pokefied thing
Florges: what prettied-up fairy tails would look like as apokefied thing

In mythology any type of sprite, fairy, or spirtual creatures were ultimately beings who tormented, killed or feasted upon humans.


I love Mawhile. I would love her to be like Steel/Fairy. That would ROCK!
