For a while now, people have been wondering what the type chart was going to be like in the sixth gen. But now that Coro Coro’s latest issue is out, we can finally put all this at rest and reveal how the Fairy type interacts with everything else.
First up, it’s immune to Dragon. As in, any Dragon attacks will do absolutely nothing to any Fairy types.
It’s also super effect against Dragon, Dark and Fighting types, resists the latter types without being immune to them and is ineffective against Poison, Fire, Bug and Steel types. It’s also weak to Poison and Steel type attacks.
So that’s something. But that’s not all!
Nope, now Steel has lost its resistance to Dark and Ghost type moves. So in other words, Jirachi and Metagross are gonna be a hell of a lot less effective in gen 6 than they were before, since their main ‘useful’ resistance is now less useful.
But now that’s all stated, you’re probably wondering what I’m thinking about this stuff myself, right?
Well to be honest, I suspect the following changes will happen in the metagame (based on reading various forums and thinking about the type chart changes):
So that’s the type chart changes and my predictions for the changes to the metagame that’ll likely result from them. What do you think? Will these changes make certain older Pokemon damn near useless? And how about that Xerneas as a potential destroyer of other overpowered Pokemon?
