    Fairy-type is a larger travesty than Light-type could ever be.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    I could think of many types I'd rather have than "Fairy-type"

    Interesting......

    I'm a bit surprised that they said Jigglypuff is part Fairy type, but not Cle'fairy'.

    Yes using an ingame term that makes sense is a travesty but making up a type based on nothing but "thereiz dark type so duuuur we nid ligth type!" is not.

    While I'm interested in the Fairy-type stuff, especially since it alters my lovable Gardevoir, it's that bat-like wyvern Noivern that really interests me. It looks so cool, and it's interesting to note that the Flying-type will be the primary type. Sure, it'll have the usual 4x weakness to Ice, but it still looks like an awesome Pokemon. Now I'm gonna have a hard time deciding which Dragon-type is my favorite: Garchomp or Noivern. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what it learns. But either way, Gen VI is shaping up quite nicely.

    This. Also, it's been explained to death that the Dark-type is more based on "playing dirty" rather than actual darkness. And while I wasn't really too welcoming of the idea of a Fairy-type when it was first talked about, it's grown on me a lot, and I kind of like the idea now. I think this new type will be able to introduce a lot more interesting ideas to Pokemon than a Light-type could. Think about it: a broad array of creatures based on different mythos (gremlins, elves, nymphs, etc.) or Pokemon based on light? Which one sounds more promising?

    Haters be hatin', as expected whenever something changes in the series.
    Remember back in the days when additions, changes and improvements used to be an awesome thing to look forward to?

    I am glad they added a new type, regardless of all the haters complaining about it. As for the choice Fairy, I would have called it Magic, but Fairy works too.

    P.S. "Fairy" should be spelled "Faerie".

    But it's "Fairy" in the trailer. xP

    I like that spelling better anyway.

    I'm still reading it at the moment, but my biggest WTF was when I saw Gardevior and Marill being retyped. Gardevior I can kind of understand, but why the hell Marill? Azumarill doesn't resemble a fairy in the slightest.

    In general, I'm unhappy with the retypings. I was hoping there wouldn't be any... Can't be helped though.

    I know, but the "proper" spelling of it is Faerie.

    Don't ask me how I know that.

    It's just the British spelling. Not the proper one. America spells it differently, deal with it.

    Why do you think it's the British way? I didn't know that, and I'm the one who said it!
