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 that they could keep the STAB from their moves. it's like GF likes missing oportunities like this.
may be i ask for too much, i guess i'll settle with dazzling gleam

    well see, the normals= STAB move abilties (I call them STABates) are exclusive to certain pokemon. So only Mega Gardevoir has Pixelate, Mega Pinsir has Aerialate, and the derpasaurus( I forget the name of it, the one that is created from the sail fossil) has Refrigerate. So it's meant to be an exclusive abilty. Hopefully in the future, more pokemon will have these abilities.

    Sylveon has pixilate, and its not as if Game Freak has ever kept anything exclusive. Even Sacred fire got passed onto Entei.

    @faucin;
    I'd imagine its because they already have their two abilities + hidden. It's a shame they don't just retcon it so that all Gen VI Clefable get Pixilate. They certainly did not have a problem giving Feebas/Milotic a second ability
