    I think the whole point of dragons overpowerness comes from all the type resistance it haves, including all the elements without ice. Also them being able to do normal damage to all other types besides steel.

    And? I'm sure Fairy type will have weakness', and dragon types will just start to carry these weakness' in their movesets.

    Trolls, Goblins, and Gnomes are considered "Faeries" in certain lore. I also think it would kill this "fairies are just small cute things" mentality I keep seeing.

    I would have thought Fairy would have been explained more in the Q & A. I suppose the next smash might enlighten us more.

    Dragon, Dark, and Fighting are a world away from grass, bug and poison for example.

    Ice moves are everywhere as well as rock for the fliers. Still doesn't dimish dragons.

    Id like to see some of the mythological fairies... those guys are definitely not things you could call girly... I mean changelings,Goblins, trolls, kelpsies, banshees well all fairies... the fairies of old-usually indifferent to mortals or abuse them for their entertainment/ow reasons (example changelings replacing human babies with their own(no one knows what happens to the human child)) (though they probably will be going more with the Disney version though some more legendary fairies would make sense(especially if they are to be effective against dragons...). So far I don't have any problem with the fairy type recons (all of them could pass for a fey) but I hope Ralts and Kirlia are both pure psychic though...

    Depending on how they handle it I can see multiple possibilities for the type
    mischievous/malevolent spirits(unlikely but this is what most Fairies of old were maybe some will have a hint of this)
    elemental/nature spirits(can easily see this probably would be dual typed)
    "modern fairy"(probably going to happen

    The flower of old if done right could have some resemblance to a more benevolent version of a nature spirit but over all it is a wait and see...
    Dragons are my friend, Ice is my foe...
    (Kyurem is an exception) dragonics rule

    -Let us hope for gen 6 to turn out well!

    As for legendaries, I think they might replace Psychic with Fairy with these ones: Jirachi, Celebi, Victini, Meloetta.

    And these could just gain a secondary Fairy type: Mesprit, Uxie, Azelf, Phione, Manaphy.

    I removed some and added the bolded ones.

    But we don't even know that Fairy's super-effective to Dark and Fighting. Dragon could be the only thing it's super-effective to for all we know.

    Which is why they're adding a Fairy type.

    I see Togepi getting a split evolution. I think the split evolution would be either Normal/Fairy or Fairy/Flying.

    Bellosom having Fairy as secondary type would make sense, especially if Fairy could be weak against Poison

    Hoping we get more new Fairy types rather than lots of re-types but i guess this is GF's only chance to reclassify old Pokemon so they may go all out

    Why are we pretending we don't know Fairy weaknesses since it leaked 4 months ago?

    Assuming the Fairy type (and a lot else) in the same leak was confirmed, shouldn't we take the type chart as basically confirmed as well?

    And what the leak said was: "Fairy will be a new type. It is weak to Poison and Steel, immune to Dragon, super effective against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting, and Fire and Psychic-type Pokemon take half damage from it."

    I agree with that. I think The Clefable family will definitely become Fairy type. Maybe Ampharos will become a Fairy type. That is probably a stretch, but it is possible.

    It was made well know thats part of the rumor were made up to cover the leaker so it's still has to be taken with a grain of salt. Plus nothing is final until we have confirmation

    Altaria doesn't look like a dragon and is a dragon type, Garchomp is a freaking landshark and is a dragon type.

    I kinda wish Exploud got a boosdt, wishmur is Jiggs like, I like exploud a lot him and Bannet(like I told you yesterday) are porbably in my top 5 of gen 3 so if they can be improved go ahead Gamefreak.

    Not sure about the first onces because they would have to drop a type but the Sinnoh pixies , Phino and Manaphy yeah I'm expecting them to get Fairy added.

    I don't think Steel needs an offensive boost. It already resists more than half the types.

    I think Milotic might become Fairy type, even though I think it should become Water/Dragon.

    I personally think the 'baby' Pokemon won't be retyped, there type will just change to fairy when they evolve or be added. Like how Azurill becomes just water when it becomes Marill. I forgot to add Audino!

    The only legendaries I agree with are Celebi and Jirachi. Celebi Fairy/Grass and Jirachi Fairy/Steel.

    Yeah and after all a lot of mystic phenomena (and creatures) were ascociated with faires like fairy dance and so on...

    Finally we might get balance among the types and people are *****ing about it? Really?
    Since the start of Pokemon games some types were getting screwed over. Poison being super effective against the least. Fire and Ice having weaknesses found everywhere. Normal not super effective against anything. Dragon being OP. Steel resisting most of the types. Maybe now there will be balance among them.

    Audino will definitly become Fairy type. I think Chansey will become Normal/Fairy.

    I think Fairy type is going to be weak to Dark, Fighting, and Bug. I think it will be super effective against Ghost and Dragon.
