Granuble... Now..... In no way does this thing resemble any sort of fairy.... So why is it's species the fairy pokemon? Why not bulldog?

No, because Fairy doesn't mean cute, sparkly Tinkerbell. Granbull is thought to be at least partially based on the Cu Sith, which literally translates as fairy dog.

Also, Darkrai needs to be Dark/Fairy and Flygon needs to be Bug/Dragon.

Mismagius. Ghost/Fairy.

It's origins are from folklore, fairy tales etc, so Fairy would fit quite well.

Chansey & Blissey need to be Fairy/Normal

Nah leave Granbull as it is. It's been a crappy Normal type for over a decade already. Fairy instantly made it good. The emtoion trio all should've been Psychic/Fairy. Just look at them and their names! Its like they were hesitant on retyping legendaries for some reason.

You trying to break the game? No one wants to run a physical Poison and Steel move as coverage just to check them.

Tinkerbell can be pretty evil though.

I still think the Goomy line shouldn't be pure Dragon...

Flygon's typing is because it's a kind of desert elemental Pokemon.

Misdreavus is based on the banshee, which is a type of fairy, so yes.

Names aside, they're based more on aspects of the human soul than anything else, hence the typing.

Tinkerbell, in the book, is stated to be capable of only having one emotion at a time. As a result, she goes to extremes. If you want to look at the more common Disney example (which cleans up some aspects of the original), Tinkerbell will fly into a rage and tries to murder Wendy.

People tend to forget that thing because "PRETTY!" and the new Disney fairy cartoons.

Darkrai doesn't need that kind of boost, but I agree about Flygon. That typing is ridiculous.

NO. BAD DOG. NO TREAT.
