    It isn't necessarily a moot point. The point to their types is that they are all super effective against one, and not very effective against the other. it's a perfect triangle which helps show how types work in regards to advantages and disadvantages, by making the three starter Pokemon equal. Them being equal also means that no starter Pokemon is really stronger than the other, so it's more of an even choice. A secondary typing of Psychic, Dark and Fighting doesn't accomplish what Fire,Grass and Water accomplishes. I never said it definitely will not happen, because it could, however, I'm saying that because it isn't a perfect triangle, I am doubting it will happen. Not that I wouldn't enjoy it, personally, I'd love a Fire/Psychic starter Pokemon.

    Assuming that Fairy type is real and it's type match-ups are as stated by pokebeach, and it's true that mawhile will be reclassified as steel/fairy, then what would mawhile's new type match-ups be like?

    Well, it'd be immune to both dragon and poison types....I think? The fairy wouldn't cancel out the steel would it?

    I find it odd they mention Mawile though out of at least a dozen or so more fairy-like pokemon.

    The strengths of Steel would counter the weaknesses of Fairy - it wouldn't be resistant to Steel-type attacks, though. So it might be a buff if Fairy offenses somehow make it into a dragon-slayer. If this information is true, we only know what is super-effective against Fairy and what Fairy-type attacks are super-effective against. We don't know about defenses for or against Fairies.

    I find it odd they mention Mawile though out of at least a dozen or so more fairy-like pokemon.
    It is based on deception, which makes it closer to the European depiction of the Unseelie Fae.

    That's easy. On the defense you have:

    - Immune to both Dragon and Poison. (Otherwise resistant to Dragon and weak to Poison.)
    - Normal damage from Steel.
    - Most (if not all) of Steel's other resistances/weaknesses still apply.

    Alleged inside information.

    Am I allowed to post this?
    I'm still treating this as unconfirmed mainly due to the contradiction with the type effectiveness Pokejungle has revealed for Sylveon in Pokemon Smash (namely that she is strong against Ice). Perhaps there can be dual-typed moves if they make it so that the type effectiveness for something doesn't wind up being x4.

    Except Mawile was based on the Futakuchi-onna yokai. There is nothing fairy-like about that particular yokai, unless you consider women to be equal to fairies. It's not based on a fairy or any legends from Europe, and I don't see why it would now just because of a new typing.

    Yokai lie in some weird Asian definition of the supernatural that's not quite a western Fairy and not quite a western Ghost or Goblin. For instance, I've seen in Japanese Kyuubi no Kitsune variously referred to as a Yokai or a Yosei - sometimes both.

    Wow, yeah, that info is identical to the pokebeach info.

    Pokemon Gym minigames that raise EVs without battling? WANT TO BE TRUE SO BAD.

    I was hoping we'd get to see the pokemon's actual IVs. I don't really care about knowing the EVs.

    Haha, I can't believe WPM fell for that.

    Seriously, beyond the extremely flimsy "proof" (an Electric Attack that absorbs HP isn't a super-specific idea), that rumor was posted on /vp/ before, although the original post was obviously fake since it messed up and claimed Mawile was part-Dark. The person obviously fixed it and submitted it to WPM...like that Gamefaqs post, it was passed on as a tester leaking it.

    The original one didn't even mention Newtwo, since it was back in March, if I recall correctly.

    How can it be possible for Mawile to be on the Fairy egg group but not to have the Fairy type (if it turns out to be real)?

    Well Stunfisk is in a water egg group but isn't water type.
