Confirmed Fairy-types

Aside from Sylveon as the first pure Fairy-type, has confirmed that Gardevoir is now Psychic/Fairy, Marill is Water/Fairy and Jigglypuff in Normal/Fairy.

Worth adding to this page their respective pages, ja? NP Chilla (talk) 15:46, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

We're working our fastest to update the pages and bring them to standard, I can guarentee you this page is being worked on by a staff member and if you will check the Pokemon pages you will see the work has started, it has only just been announced, give us a chance to do the work, and do it right. --Spriteit (talk) 15:51, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Surely it's safe to assume that Azurill, Azumarill, Igglybuff, and Wigglytuff are fairy types as well? And with a name like Clefairy, it, Cleffa and Clefable are obvious candidates as well. Digifiend (talk)
Well for Azurill, it's not even a Water type so there's no reason to assume it's going to get the Fairy type as well. It'd be better not to assume anything. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 19:01, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
Definitely agree until more official details are confirmed, and maybe if people try editing those pages then they should be protected to protect against speculation. -Tyler53841 (talk) 19:13, 11 June 2013 (UTC)
I believe most of them are already protected, so that won't be a problem. --It's Funktastic~!話してください 19:16, 11 June 2013 (UTC)


This is just nitpicking but the colour you used to represent gen 6 on the "list of pokemon with cross generational evolutions" is different from the type you used to represent gen 6 on the new moves. Stay consistent please :( 0danmaster0 (talk) 16:20, 11 June 2013 (UTC)


Add a redirect to this page from "fairy type." LordArceus 18:41, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Retyping notice

Following the style for other people that have been retyped, Magnemite/Magneton and Rotom's alternate forms, shouldn't all Pokémon retyped to Fairy have a little marker next to them indicating that this typing only applies to Gen VI onwards?

e.g. {{tt|*|Generation VI onwards}} which should comes out as: *

I would add it myself but I'm not an autoconfirmed user. - Tasty Salamanders (talk) 23:03, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

Other type interactions

We can't say for sure yet, but Fairy appears to also be either neutral or super-effective against Flying, since it hits for super-effective on Salamence. Just thought I'd put this here for later reference. Skarthe (talk) 23:40, 11 June 2013 (UTC)

The same goes for Dark, since it's super effective against Hydreigon. --Gοldenpelt 22:34, 12 June 2013 (UTC)


I noticed the number of Fairy-types was not updated right away. Why don't we use a template to count them? {{#expr: {{PAGESINCATEGORY:Fairy-type Pokémon}}}} The same should probably be done for the other types too. TorchicBlaziken (talkedits) 00:11, 13 June 2013 (UTC)


We don't know if they were actually retconned yet, do we? There could be some lame in-game excuse....--Phoenixon (talk) 00:41, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

They changed something from the past. With or without an excuse, it's still a retcon. Even if they say something like, "These were discovered to be Fairy-types all along" or "These Pokemon recently gained Fairy-type attributes" it's still a retcon. Crystal Talian 00:50, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
True, but still, the word retcon is a little bit slangy/casual/Newspeaky, no? Wouldn't the phrase "such-and-such Pokemon were changed to be Fairy-type" suffice? Pumpkinking0192 (talk) 00:54, 13 June 2013 (UTC)
