With my luck he's going to confirm those OP fairy type deets

from what I heard

it's

Weak to

Steel
Poison

Resistant to

Fighting
Dark

Immune to

Dragon

NFE against

fire
Psychic

And Strong Against

Fightning
Dragon (which is confirmed)
Dark

So now that I think about it seems very over powered. Assuming they just forgot to put steel on the NFE list it has the exact same amount of each type of relations as dark (pre fairy dark) except with one more SE and one more resistance at the same time as knocking dark down. While being the only thing beside ice good against dragon. They decided (allegedly) to give a steel a bone instead of ice which is losing it's "I'm the only thing besides dragon to be good against dragon" privilege.

So they decide to nerf an unbalanced type by making an unbalanced type. Not to mention to stay relevant in the metagame some pokes will have to adopt poison and steel moves. Good for poison I guess that's cool but it will cut down on a large amount of versatility. Now this wasn't a problem in Gen 1 to Gen 2 BECAUSE NOTHING RUDDY HAD VERSATILITY

    I would like it the best if dark is resistant instead, and ice is super effective and also resistant or something like that.

    Hrm. According to what you noted it's neither strong nor weak to Grass/Ice. I don't know whether I should feel this is a good thing or sigh at two of my three fav types getting the shaft yet again...

    I'm gonna avoid talking about Gen I & II and its overall mechanics but I will say Gen I was Grass and Poison types glory days. Yes, even with Psychic types running around.

    I knew it would be weak to steel since it's a fairy.
