Pack an Ice and Fariy type now or put ice beam on every thingFairy Type? What happened to Light and Sound? :xd:
But in all seriousness, I was astonished (pun intended) when the Fairy Type was introduced. I don't hate it like most fans because they are hipsters and what not, but I do hope that there will be a fair weakness to the new type. I'm really hoping that they are weak to Poison, just so I finally use my Gengar Shadow and finally have some STAB on something that is not a Grass Type. Also, I like how the Fairy Type is supposedly to weaken Dragon Types. That's good especially since I always fight against people who only use Dragons. Granted, I only use 1 Dragon Type which is Hydriegon, but at least I balance my team. But then my friends say I can't use Dragons against them. I'm always like "But it is just 1 Dragon!" and then they reply "You're cheating if you use Dragons". And then it makes upset when I tell them what they use in WiFi battles and they say "Oh, I use Dragons because they are so good!". And then I become sad because they don't want me to play a single Dragon in my team.
Anyways, I am very excited to see the new Type in action. I do hope that GameFreak will do some great things with the Fairy Type in the upcoming metagame.
Actually, its already been confirmed that they will be weak against steel and poison. Fairy-type - Pokémon X & Y - MarrilandFurthermore, I really hope that the Fairy type is weak against steel and poison types. These are very logical weaknesses. Considering that fairies were weak against iron and they're often related to nature. Poison kills nature and a lot of Pokemon in that typing seem anti-natural. So, giving Fairies these weaknesses would make a lot of sense and would finally make poison types USEFUL. Can you imagine that, useful Weezing? xD
Um, if you are trying to source what you said, that article isn't the best thing for that. XD It says it HINTS that Fairy-type Pokémon are going to be weak to Steel- and Poison-type attacks. And I don't think hints is confirmed. . .
Anywho, I really like the Fairy-type Pokémon so far and I can't wait to see more revealed Pokémon of the type (If there even is going to be more Pokémon). ^^Fairy-type Pokémon themselves have been hinted as being weak to Steel- and Poison-type attacks.
