they introduce a new type: fairy. that's okay. i think it makes sense
they retcon some normal type pokemon as fairys, which we all saw coming
but today, after i realized that my lvl 60 clefable from fire red can't possibly learn moonblast and lost STAB from Hyper Voice, it ocurred to me: if they made pixilate, an ability that makes normal type moves fairy type, and made some normal pokemon fairys, why didn't they give the ability to some retconned pokemon? it would only make sense
im starting to think masuda method is full of lies. i've been breeding for a shiny charmander with no success, using a 6IV charmander hatched by me with a french female with 5IV. i dont know the exact number, but i think im around 800+ eggs. it wasn't all a waste, i got at least like 8 charmanders with 6IV (even a female with HA), before i stopped checking the IVs (i only check the females that have stats like 12/5/6/6/6/6 as in max for a lv 1 timid charmander), but it's really getting annoying.
