Fairy type is OP

Weakens some of the offensively best types in the game (Dragon, Fighting, Dark) and it's only weakness are two types that aren't commonly used offensively (lolsteel lolpoison).

It's what the balance for this game needed. Make Dragon, Fighting, and Dark less effective overall and make Steel and Poison more effective.

I think that was kind of the point of Fairy Type, OP.

Yeah, it's almost as if this new type was added to nerf those overpowered types and give those underpowered ones a reason to be used

Fairy as a type would probably be considered OP, if Dragon type hadn't been a colossal peach for the past three gens. Fairy type pokemon, on the other hand, aren't. Not even close.

You make it sound like because poison wasn't commonly used in previous gens means it won't be this gen either.

While it balances out some OP types like Dragon, I do feel it should have another weakness or two, specifically Fire considering it resists the damn thing!

Since when has Dark ever been an issue? That's honestly the only thing about the Fairy type that irks me other then it needlessly resisting Bug to make it even worse of an attacking type.

The BP on Dark type attacks has never been high enough to make them threatening on the level Dragon and Fighting were and still are. Dark is also pretty terrible as a defensive typing, as all of its resists are uncommon, plus many of the Pokemon it does resist can learn something that's super effective against Dark which makes the resistance pointless in the long run.

I don't feel that it being able to hit Steel for neutral damage now is a fair trade-off at all.
