    I actually LIKE fairy type. I think it's pretty cool. Now I can finally build teams around cuteness! ^-^ 3 weaknesses for dragon - So? Dragon is still powerful, and it just gives you another way to make a great team. Hopefully, in X and Y there might be a few less weather teams...

    I'm giggling at all of the fans who think they have the audacity to make any judgments about this type. It was revealed today, and we haven't even gotten a chance to see it in-depth. Anybody who is honestly griping about this thinks much too highly of themselves and their opinion.

    True, but a lot of kids these days don't know about that (not Jorgen--maybe). Whether it's because of Disney or Barbie or whatnot, fairies has become more of a girly product. Outside of Harry Potter and Pan's Labyrinth (off the top of my head), whenever you see fairies, they act all cute and girly, and look feminine, too. I'm sure most of us here who haven't taken mythology or just don't care for it think of that whenever we hear or read the word "fairy".

    So people can't dislike something? I think you think too highly of yourself and your opinion, because you obviously think you can pass your judgement down on others from what you obviously seem to think of as a moral haven.

    I'm not saying femininity is bad, but considering how Pokémon tends to appeal more to boys than girls, it feels a bit out of place to me. I'm sure the young girl players will be all "YAAAAAAY" while the boys go "Ugh!", but yeah. If "fairy" has more of a special attack moveset and it's almost magical in a way, it could've also worked with "Wizard-type" or even "Magician/Sorcerer-type". *shrugs* I just personally can't take "fairy" seriously on its own. So hopefully the moves and Pokémon are really cool so it'll be a "beware the nice ones" reveal in a way.

    But you are saying that because the fairy type has feminine connotations, you think it's silly and doesn't fit well with the game (that is, by your words, mostly targeted for males), and it will only be received well by other female players and men won't like it. So basically you are saying that feminine things can't be taken seriously, and that's um, what should I call it, misogyny? And so what if it appeals more to women? I'm not a woman, but I'm fully supportive of Fairy type and super excited, not because it's '' feminine '' because I don't see it as that, but because it's mystical and interesting. Fairy type has actually no connotations to femininity or the female gender, and even if it actually did, then that wouldn't be bad at all, it wouldn't be silly, it wouldn't be out-of-place just because of that.

    And I don't think that Magic/Sorcerer(or -ess/Wizard could have worked. Fairy type was probably only implemented to bring a huge threat to Dragons. So I think it fits well that another mythical creature, a fairy, is the one to do the stomping of the dragons. Not Light or Magic types, but Fairy types. And AFAIK, dragons in mythological tales, are usually killed with weapons made by Fairies or Elves, or just by Fairies and their magic. So it fits well.

    Though nobody would be complaining if the type would have been called Fae or something, which is outright stupid. But I guess the hot-blooded testosterone-driven teenage boys who are afraid of liking anything '' feminine '' and afraid of people calling them gay for playing a game with a Fairy type (or have pokemons with a Fairy type in their team) will all settle down once a gym leader/Elite Four member will be introduced that only uses fairy types, and happens to be a cool/badass/epic barbarian dude.

    True, in western culture 'fairy' has been marketed at girls, but seeing as pokemon is worldwide, the Japanese creators may not be thinking of it quite the same way... after all Soot Demons and Totoro are considered fairies (even if the English translators called him a troll).

    It won't make that much of a difference so long as they don't over-market it.

    All opinions are not equal. Being "angry" about a new type of a game that isn't released that we have relatively little information on, from a game no one has played, is a dumb, uninformed opinion. It is just the latest in the "it is new, therefore it sucks" opinions of the fandumb that happens near the beginning of every generation.

    I understand that, but there's a difference between disliking someone for valid reasons and saying "OH MY GODZ POKEMANZ RUINED FOREVERZ!" I dislike Fairy type, but solely for the reason that I feel it to be unnecessary and forced. Otherwise, I don't really care. (Also, I dislike that they're giving the new type an Eeveelution rather than say Steel type, I hope that changes).

    I liked the idea of a fairy type and don't think that it'll unbalance the game. We have many Pokemons that are related to fairies and it is rather predictable which will have the type changed.

    About recalculating the teams, that has always been happenning on every generation.

    And though dragons gain a weakness, they'll still be powerful and overused if compared to other types.

    Exactly. Three weaknesses is still very few.

    So many opinions on this new type, that I just gotta put mine out there. Why in the world is it called Fairy? Why not do this instead: 1- Rename it Light. 2- Make it super effective on Dark. 3- Make it immune to Dark. 4- Make it weak to Psychic. 5- Make Psychic resist Light. 6- Get rid of the super effectiveness on Dragon. And as for Sylveon being this type, I have one thing to say: Stupid Pokémon! You should have made Sylveon the Flying-type instead! This is my opinion, and I will only change it if I like the new info that is revealed it about later on. Until then, I officially hate this type.
    I am a fire pokémon fan.

    Blaze up!

    Come on people. It's just a new type, the Steel and Dark types were introduced in Generation II. I'm really glad there's another type in the series now.

    Oh no, we'll have to recalculate!

    Seriously, that sounds like you'd rather be lazy than have something new and excitening.

    What is the point in being angry about it anyways? It happened, so get over it.

    No one at all has a single valid reason. It was just announced mere hours ago about a game no one here has played. Any negative opinion on it is just the same ol "it is new, therefore it sucks" crap every new game gets across every fandumb.

    What makes it "unnecessary"?

    and forced.
    What in the world does that mean?

    now i start to think of it maybe nintendo is trying to make pokemon x and y so that also girls are more likely to buy it not that i am say it wasn't allready for girls but see if you count it up fairy sounds girlish then you got pokemon amie which kinda let me think about nintendo dogs and it is fully based on france which is the country of fashion and other stuff and you can change the outfit and stuff of your character it is getting pretty logic to me

    Well, generally Fairy is already covered under normal, and it could have stayed that way. I mean it's forced as in it seems to exist just because it's new. Even then, it's fine. Notice how I'm not preemptively raging about this. My immediate reaction is that I dislike it, but I'm seeing how things will go.

    Fairy type is probably weak to itself and even fire :P

    I wonder how it will matches metal, since metal is kind of machines and mechanics?

    Or fairy vs psychic and ghost

    I love how already people are comparing fairies to females and assuming that this type is going to be feminine.

    Fairies are not mass produced pieces of pink plastic that usually make me want to burn them, fairies are the 'Wee folk' they are small. Petite. Have any of you ever heard of changelings? The offspring of fairies...

    Evil, vicious, type of fairy.

    Again, Fairies are not little pieces of pink plastic covered in sparkles. They are mythical creatures, like dragons, and should be treated as such.

    I really like how Sylveon is a Fairy-type instead of a Normal-type, as some people speculated.

    I am laughing at people getting offended about people's perception of fairies.
