No it's just... to know that, like, clefairy was being changed to a fairy type, they must have seen its name next to fairy type.
To know that the new form is a fairy type, they must have seen its name next to fairy type.
I mean that's not for sure, but it could be possible?
You're probably right with the placeholder name though

Something that bugs me about this. I'm assuming dan=hirobyte, but people have been following his twitter for a while and I can't say I recall him saying all those Pokemon (bar Clefairy and saying he wasn't sure about Togepi) would be fairy type.
And that post was posted by some random guy in the comments section of the Pokejungle article 5 days ago so credibility seems a bit...lacking?
But I believe in Fairy/Flying Togekiss!!!!
Anyway, all the Pixies except Shaymin (Both Formes) and Mew have their types edited to adjust to Fairy.
Also, I hope Xerneas' Sig Move has a chance of Paralyzing. If Fairy/Electric, woud be called Fairy Charge, and if Psychic/Electric, it'd be Neural Shock.
To the second: Fighting types are not brawlers. They have distinct martial arts fighting style, and most of their techniques are martial arts/wrestling moves that are learned through long training. Fighting types are like the "hero" types, they stand for truth, justice and honor. The Scraggy line is the only one I can think of that are brawlers, because they're based on street combat.
The only Dark-type moves that pertain to darkness are Night Daze and Dark Void, which are the signature moves of two Dark-type Pokémon who use darkness as a gimmick (and even then, one of those two is a trickster, so in that instance, it's still more along the lines of cheap tactics).
The way I see it, Dark types rely on Dirty tactics to win. These are trumped by the heroic, honorable, fighting types. Fighting types in turn are beaten down by Psychics, which signifies brain over brawn. Last, Psychic types are taken down by Dark types, showing that even the mind can be tricked. But enough of my type chart speculation. Back to the Legendaries. What do you think this gen's trio will be? Like Arcticuno/Zapdos/Moltres type trio.

Either way, nice job! You've put some thought into this interesting idea.
A Fairy-type? That's a breeding group, or a species classification, not an actual type. I think Sylveon will be Normal-type, like most other Fairy Pokémon. There might be an off-chance that it'd be Flying, but I think that if it is, it'll likely be Normal AND Flying.
I also think Yveltal will either be Rock/Dragon, Fire/Dragon, or Dark/Dragon. Why Rock/Dragon? Well, there have been weirder type combos for legendaries before. *glares accusingly at Palkia... >.>*
Xerneas might also be Grass/Electric, but if he is based on the nervous system, then Psychic/Electric makes more sense.

I just don't see anymore new typing. They haven't added any new types since the second generation and they only got away with it then because there wasn't that many Pokemon
Oh my gosh. You can tell I havent been on here since before X & Y was released.... Signature was before fairy type was even confirmed. Oh lordy that's been awhile ago.
TBH I expect every legendary (Except the once being dragon type) to became fairy type...if the rumors are true!!
New Face-Offs coming soon! If you're curious about what they are then just click the spoiler:
