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.

Alex's early adoration for Nintendo began with a Yellow Game Boy and a copy of Donkey Kong Land. This developed over the years, later peaking when he hid in his room to play The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time one Christmas. Nowadays, his enthusiasm is shared through Nintendo Insider, a place in which he can document his thoughts regarding the big N.


  1. The Pokémon-type?

  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.

  4. So sableye and spiritomb finally have a super effective weakness. Interesting.
