Outside of 1-2 Pokemon, utterly useless.

Funny how much hype they're getting.

Dark type used to be bad because of lack of pokemon that has it.

Now with over 700 pokemon, I'm guessing at least 30 fairy types.
Apparently, I'm nobody.

We already have Azumarill, and he's at least UU or OU.

Gardevoir probably will be alright, but like Gallade, it'll struggle with Speed.

MegaMawile's Huge Power could be cool, but not too game changing.

So maybe. Sylveon could work a lot like Blissey, so we really just need a few good offensive ones.

A large portion of new pokemon should be made fairies to catch up with the other types.

The problem was that Dark was a special type, yet every Dark-type added in Gen 2 were built as physical attackers (or as non attackers in Umbreon's case). This made Dark STAB useless, which was already hard to take advantage of thanks to how few Dark-type moves there were to begin with.

Fairy has the advantage of being added post-Gen IV, where the physical/special split is in full effect.

What if they made Azelf/Uxie/Mesprit Psychic/Fairy?


They're fairly solid Pokemon (not really upper crust OU or anything but they're definitely decent Pokemon).
