By breathing the air in the Kalos region, certain pokemon got the fairy typing. Perfectly logical explanation, hue.

Probably something to do with the moon. But even more likely I doubt that they will even bother to acknowledge it.

Relatively simply put: Think of each of the Types as a form of energy, each with it's own effects. Fire, Water, Electricity, etc. Energy. A Pokemon's type is decided by what form of energy it knows how to primarily channel. A Pokemon that possesses an affinity for Fire is a Fire type Pokemon. Etc.

However, with the introduction of new types, we enter the conundrum you present: Why did older Pokemon, if they are this type, not know how to use it's effects?

They didn't know about Fairies before.

For example: A person is a prodigy at chess. They might go their whole lives without even learning to play, and that talent would never be discovered. But show them even the slightest hint of it, and suddenly they're winning every game.

Pokemon that are native to other regions don't naturally possess the knowledge to channel energy that develops in other regions, because they grew in an environment that didn't have it, but once they KNOW that energy exists, they might discover they have an affinity for using it.

Am I making any sense whatsoever?
