The Pokémon of this type have the highest average Special Defense of all types.


Fairy attacks are resisted by Poison, but Poison is weak to Psychic-type moves, which Fairy Pokémon are frequently able to learn. Additionally, all three of the types that resist Fairy are weak to Ground, making Fairy and Ground a strong attacking combination.

Fairy-type Pokémon, on average, have the lowest physical Attack of all Pokémon.

Contest properties

In Contests, Fairy-type moves are typically Beautiful and Cute moves. None of them are considered Cool or Tough moves.


As of Generation VIII, there are 59 Fairy-type Pokémon or 6.6% of all Pokémon (counting those that are Fairy-type in at least one of their forms, including Mega Evolutions and Alolan Forms), making it the third rarest type, tying with Dragon, only behind Ice and Ghost.

In the TCG

Main article: Fairy (TCG)

Introduced in the Kalos Starter Set set, Fairy-type Pokémon in the TCG are generally weak to Metal with resistances to Darkness. Fairy-type Pokémon can be strong against Dragon, whilst no Pokémon can resist this type.


  • More Pokémon were changed to Fairy than either of the other types added since Generation I (the other two being Dark and Steel in Generation II), with 22. Also, more moves were changed to Fairy, with three. All three of them were Status moves introduced in Generation II and were previously Normal-type.
    • It is also the only one out of the three types to completely change the types of Pokémon from previous generations, changing several previously pure Normal-type Pokémon, such as Snubbull, to pure Fairy.
  • The Fairy type is the only type without any Pokémon with gender differences.
  • Every type that resists Fairy also resists Grass and Bug and is weak to Ground.
    • The types that resist Fairy are the three types with the most resistances.
  • The Fairy-type is one of the two types that Hidden Power cannot become, the other being the Normal-type.
    • This, combined with the lack of any Fairy-type moves in Kecleon's and Greninja's movesets, prevents all Pokémon that naturally have Protean from becoming Fairy-type using it (although Kecleon can become Fairy-type with its other Ability, Color Change).
  • The Fairy type has the fewest physical moves of all types.
  • The Fairy type is the only type to have an unobtainable Gem.
