The Fairy type (Japanese: フェアリー Fairy) is one of the eleven TCG types. It was represented by the color pink and symbolized by two shapes resembling a star and a pair of wings or cupped "healing hands" surrounding it. It may also have been a stylized depiction of Florges or Xerneas's antlers.
The Fairy type formerly contained most Fairy-type Pokémon found in the main series video games. For example, Xerneas, Sylveon, and Aromatisse were Fairy types in the TCG. Some Pokémon that were classed as Colorless types prior to the Kalos Starter Set, such as Snubbull, were Fairy types from the Kalos Starter Set to Cosmic Eclipse.
The Fairy type ceased being supported by the TCG from the Sword & Shield expansion onwards. Pokémon that are Fairy-types in the main series video games are now grouped with the Psychic type instead. In the 2021-22 Standard format, Fairy Energy was rotated out, becoming the first Basic Energy card with this distinction.
