    It has very fairy like characteristics though, changing with the weather- ties it very closely to nature, but not in the way a Grass type is- thus Fairy fits it, to me even if it is a 'synthetic' Fairy- still pretty cool

    I don't know if it was created by the weather institute - though bulbapedia suggests it is, though I don't remember that stated in any of the games.

    But artificial doesn't mean much. Japanese have a whole category of manmade objects that turn into yokai/fairies, hence why I mentioned tsukumogami. Fairies may not necessarily be "nature spirits".

    It's completely synthetic, although apparently 100% made out of water :P
    The researhers and Shelly/Courtney say that, along that it was made by the Weather Institute.

    How they made it beats me.

    I guess Fairy would make sense, but Castform just isn't well, erm, I forgot what I was gonna type about Castform -.-

    That could be cool if it was Fairy/???? where it had a different evo for each form or the same one but like Wormadam, where one is 'stuck' on it-

    I mentioned those earlier with regards to Marill as a Beachball and Jigglypuff as a Balloon- but I didn't know what they were called

    they seem like tsukumogami to me

    I'll admit that I'm pretty lukewarm on Castform getting fairy type. All about Chimecho getting it, though.

    About the Castform thing, maybe there will be some kind of Fairy weather effect so Castform can have a Fairy form.

    Steel-Types are my favorites!

    If that happens GF had better give Castform a form for Fog and Sandstorm!

    Shadow Sky is pretty much nonexistant so nobody neeeds that, and the PMD Weather Effects are too many to count.

    Yeah, something like "Fairy Dust" or "Fairy Wind."

    Random idea for an entry-hazard Fairy Move - Fairy Ring - confusion upon entry? Doesn't seem any more OP than Toxic Spikes, and fits well with Fairy Ring mythology.

    I guess it would do great against Outrage Dragons in the wifi battles.

    What I'm looking for is a defensive Fairy that can be an entry hazard Pokemon.

    Hmm maybe, but confusion just basically turns it into a game of luck and they try and remove that from competitive play. Like how evasive moves aren't really allowed.

    But it doesn't grant invincibility like Double Team.

    True, like I said, maybe it could happen, but I think it would cause more trouble than balancing things out.

    Some nice ideas going here I'd imagine a Fairy Weather condition being something like summoning shooting stars in the sky? Fairy Fall? Or atleast an illusion of it.

    Fairy Ring- confusion upon entry, awesome ;] perhaps it saps HP like a reverse Aqua Ring as well?

    Who likes my new signature btw, based on the Bagua

    i like the fairy ring idea. actually, don't fairy rings make you invisible or something, so wouldn't that raise evasiveness. i don't know, but it is still a cool idea.

    Then it would be banned like Double Team.

    Evasion is a big no-no when it comes to competitive, and in-game it only serves to make the game even more luck-based. In fact, I'd like to remove luck-based elements in the games as much as possible or at least make their effects smaller.

    And, as someone said, I also hope that, is there is a Lucario/Zoroark this gen, it will be at least part Fairy. And it'd be pink, but very cool-looking. ^^ Like Palkia.
    I'm pulling for a Psychic/Poison Psychedelic Coyote based on Southwest Native American folklore. That way it will be SE and resist Fairy instead of being one.

    I still don't see why Minimize was buffed to +2 in Evasion.

    I just hope their isn't a Fairy + Evasion effect move because I'm most certainly not pressing the A button a lot of times until I get lucky.
