    That thing looks awesome. Probably gains grass as a secondary type on evolution.

    Hmmm this is interesting, and the cosmic association fits in with the moon-based attack that Sylveon gets. It does make me wonder why Marill is part-Fairy though (beyond it just being in the Fairy Egg Group) since there doesn't seem to be anything arcane/cosmic about it :s

    You forgetting that we already have 4 moon pokemon? I highly doubt the moon will become an image for fairy pokemon..

    I'd love it if Zorua was a Fairy type, and it would be interesting if the new Newtwo/Mewthree would also be Fairy type.

    Although, to be perfectly honest I'd have thought they would do Light rather than Fairy, I'm hoping they aren't just going to shove all the 'girly' Pokemon in that type.

    No, I'm just saying that it's possible that the Fairy-type might have an association with cosmic forces given Sylveon's attack and what Erchamion said. That doesn't mean that every Pokemon/attack that has to do with the moon has to become a Fairy-type though.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I recall some article saying that Sylveon is supposed to be weak against ice type attacks? If Sylveon is a pure fairy type Pokémon (which is most likely true) then that would make the fairy type weak to ice. But it's been a while since I've heard the article, maybe I'm misunderstanding.

    As for past Pokémon, I'm happy with the choices they've made so far. I was surprised with Marill, but it was a nice surprise. It makes Marill more interesting. Jigglypuff is fine, but if they changed Jigglypuff, I really hope they changed Clefairy and Clefable too. Otherwise it will forever make no sense to me how Jigglypuff is a fairy and Clefairy isn't. I'm glad they went ahead and changed some typings. I was worried that they wouldn't.

    I hope Fairy type's association with moon doesn't go beyond the move Moonblast. I don't want Umberon's Moon concept to be spoiled with Sylveon.

    Fairy-Type.. I like it. But I don't like how it is better than Dragons. it should be something like an oposite to the Dark-Type.
    And I would guess most of the Pokemon from the Fairy egg-group will gain it as a secondary type. Like Jigglypuff and Marill did.

    I'm happy with the new typing I guess. Fairy just seems so...and I hate to use this term...gay. Like, what about all the male Pokemon? Fairy type for me correlates Pokemon with some sort of feminine influence in their designs.

    I like that they made another type, I just don't know if it was the best choice...

    I guess I can't really relate to that problem. Most fighting types look very masculine and yet, well, they have female members as well.

    According to the Q & A, the entire point behind creating the fairy type was to kind of balance out the dominance of dragon types in the competitive field by giving them one more weakness. Whether that works out or not is something we'll see when the games hit.

    Aah. Then it makes a bit moer sense, yes. Even though most Dragons with Flying as secondary typing are weak to Rock too.

    Yup, but that doesn't change the fact that dragons are extremely dominant in higher tiers. And frankly, I don't think that's going to change much. The fairy types we've seen so far don't seem like they'd be high-tier dragon slayers. Of course, we've probably only seen early game Pokes at this point. We might get to see some stronger fairies later.

    I don't get why everyone thinks fairy shouldn't be strong against Dragon. More often or not the Fairies or Fae type creatures are on the goodside of fariytales (I'll admit there are some which are antagonists) and normally the Dragons are the bad guys (Granted some can be Protaganists). Thinking of fairytales the goodside normally defeat the badside, so to me it makes sense that fairy can beat dragons
