Currently, I am far from impressed. None of them are appealing, and while I wasn't all that surprised by the fairy reveals we have had, a few retcons and another cute-but-really-has-nothing-else-going-for-it-thus-far eevelution makes for an incredibly underwhelming initial presentation of the type. Also, they seem to be clinging to the irritating and infinitely less interesting interpretation of fairies; typical cutsey creatures. I'm hoping there are a few surprises hidden in this generation, but as I said, thus far fairy as a type has been thoroughly underwhelming.

Sylveon in particular looks abhorrent.

I'm glad that they finally added a new type. The previous 17 was getting on my OCD nerves. Now there's 18 types, so it's perfectly even. I think they are really trying on this generation. All three starters look awesome and Sylveon looks Eevee-like. Personally, I think the third generation starters were the worst, and people are hating on Generation VI starters, I don't understand. Fairy type is very interesting (what were they going to add? Machine type? We already have steel and electric.)

Because being an Oshawaott recolour with a helmet or a derpfrog with a bubble moustache is not cool. Granted, if it weren't for those factors they would be far more tolerable, but my overall summation of them is that they are bland, with defining characteristics that detract from what little visual quality they would otherwise have had. Also, fairy will remain uninteresting until they do something actually interesting with it. Being effective against Dragons is cool, but that is literally all the type has going for it outside of potential thus far.

I advocate the notion of adding new types, but I'd have preferred something that gave the impression that a greater amount of thought and effort was put into it.

Imagine this though

Pikachu vs Salamance ( instead of Pikachu being 1.5 x Effective it's 5.5 - 6 x effective against Salamance )

I think the idea of a fairy type- I hope we see some interesting Pokemon and moves in this typing. I really thought Sylveon was going to be Flying type... so it came as a shock when they introduced the new type!

If nothing appealing happens with this type, I wouldn't bat an eye. Nothing spectacular happened with Steel and Dark, I can only assume this will be the same. At most, we will see our typical cliche movie with the front-cover staring a fairy-type.

Dark at least had an interesting and (mostly) thematic selection of moves, it's just unfortunate that given the fast nature of the game and Dark being a horrendous offensive type, they got left behind. I'm hoping that, in terms of the metagame, Fairies amount to more than a patch, but I wouldn't be all that surprised if this isn't the case.

Luvdisc is definitely in need of the fairy typing. Clefairy family, Iggly family, and the lake guardians should be fairies as well. However, Celebi is the pokemon that most resembles a fairy but it probably won't get it since it already is psychic.

look what happened to Gardevior & Marrill ( now both are part fairy type )

could Pikachu be next to become part fairy type ?
