Fairy type is new.

Offensive: Strong against Dragon, Fighting, and Dark. Weak against Fire, Poison, and Steel
Defensive: Strong against Fighting, Dark, and Bug. Weak to Poison and Steel. Immune to Dragon.

Each Pokemon now has an ability to help it in battle (sometimes out of battle too). These are either passive effects or can be activated by something.

If a move is considered physical or special is not based solely on type anymore. There are now Physical Fire moves, Special Fighting moves, etc. There's a symbol on the move's info screen that tells you if the move is Physical, Special, or Support.

TM moves are also reusable (thank goodness), there's also Natures too -- they also have a big influence on stats. On the status screen the brown stat is the one that's raised, and the red stat is the one that's lowered. Some natures don't raise/lower anything too.

The game is friendly to older players. They've brought back some old sound effects and areas from the original Red & Blue. You'll recognize the first forest of the game as a carbon copy of Viridian Forest.
