By In News, Nintendo 3DS Published on September 11th, 2013

Alongside revealing Mega Mewtwo X and Mega Garchomp, monthly Japanese magazine CoroCoro has also revealed further details regarding Fairy-type Pokémon.

A chart printed within the publication reveals that the Pokémon-type, which is a new addition within Pokémon X and Y, will be super effective against Dark, Dragon and Fighting-type Pokémon. It won’t be effective on Fire, Poison or Steel-type Pokémon, and will be weak to Poison and Steel-type attacks from opposing Pokémon.

Meanwhile Fairy-type Pokémon are immune to Dragon-type attacks, and have a resistance against Bug, Dark and Fighting-type moves.

Pokémon X & Y will launch for Nintendo 3DS worldwide on October 12th.

  2. Ratio wise the fairy type may be OP in it’s defenses and offensive matchups but stat wise may not be very strong.

  3. Whoa. Now the Fairy-type pokemon are the new powerful type. Dragon attacks won’t work at all against it. And the only weaknesses are Steel-type and Poison-types.
