Jigglypuff is a Fairy!!!

Holy taco-in-a-box! There are 18 types now!
Like for many other blog posts, the news revealed earlier is the topic today!

The Fairy type has been revealed. It's super effective against the Dragon type (there was even a nice little picture of Sylveon beating up the brutal Hydreigon). That's just great. The Pokémon team that I've been revamping for the past year has 4 dragons in it.

I've gotta know the weakness of the Fairy type! It can't be Dark (poor Hydreigon). I'm guessing that Ghost Pokémon might be able to beat them. The Bug type is also a possibility. (Or, hopefully, Poison Pokémon might be able to get x2 against 2 different types now.)

Other than that, I'm actually pretty happy that there's a new type. Maybe all the Pokémon in the Fairy Egg Group will get this type. (But I don't want to see Pikachu suddenly revealed to be part Fairy in the anime)

The new Pokémon were pretty interesting. Why does a Dragon/Flying Pokémon have a Normal type move as its signature move? No STAB for it. Poor Noivern.

Vivillon seems interesting enough. There had to be another Bug/Flying type anyways. (Generation V was the only one to not introduce a Bug/Flying Pokémon. Have to continue the old tradition!)

Pokémon-Amie! That sounds really awesome! It kinda reminds me of Pokémon Channel. I feel like Friendship will do more than evolve certain Pokémon and allow some moves to be learned now.

I've got high hopes for Pokémon X and Y. I can't wait to get them this year!
But, I've still got to repair my 3DS!

    Noivern is actually a Flying/Dragon type.

    That's right. You got me there!

    Do you know what's the difference between Dragon/Flying and Flying/Dragon? In general, does it matter what type is first and what type is second?

    I think it matters because the primary type listed is what makes the Pokemon be mostly about. For example, as Salamence is a Dragon/Flying type, it means that it's mostly based on dragons. Noivern being a Flying/Dragon type makes its basis on mostly things related to flight, with dragon being it's secondary, and less important characteristic.

    That makes a lot of sense. The only ones I wonder about are the ones based on birds. This is the first dual-type Pokemon I've seen with Flying as its primary type. Shouldn't Pidgey, Moltres, Articuno, Zapdos, Starly, Pidove and the rest of them be primarily Flying too then? For all other Pokemon, what you just said works really well for them. :)
