but you have to assume cuz if you don't this forum wouldn't go anywhere
But I did have a thought yesterday
the sableye on the poster could be caught by clan or iris or even ash (doubting ash though) and so the sableye isn't this big feature which is going to evolve it's just a trainer's pokemon

If this whole thing about a new "fairy" type Pokemon is true, then my guess is that they will change that name into "light" in the English version of the games, considering they chose to call "evil" type "dark" back in the Gold/Silver days.

you're right

So I WAS right when I thought of light vs dark!!!
BTW: I hope they are not planing to add fairy type to every pokemon in the fairy group. It would be weird if pokemon like pickachu was an electric AND a fairy type....

Wait, why would that be weird? It's not like Pokemon changing type between generations is unprecedented.

IF they're really making a new "fairy/light" type and it makes Pikachu any stronger, then the'll probably do that.

Pikachu is their mascot and in the first games it could only be found in the forest and it was about as rare as clefairy, so it could very well be considered a fairy of the forest or a creature of light.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I'm only wondering this; if this guy said the English names of the Pokemon way back in February, then why did no one hear about it then? How come these names are only known now that they've been officially confirmed, and nobody said anything of the names until now.

Sav'aaq!

Because Pokebeach is VERY strict about the info they get and reject any "inside source" assuming it's fake. Pokebeach actually revealed the names 3 days before the official confirmation to test and see if he had the right names. And as we know, he did.

Oh. Well, okay then. I guess there's really no fighting it now. (justplease tell me that dual-typed moves isn't also confirmed.)

Also, I don't think Game Freak would change their mascot's type after all these years, I would be really shocked (hahaha...ha) if they did that.

Nothing would change with the pikachu in the anime.

I guess it would just go like...
"OH so you're a fairy pokemon! Now wonder you could do all these amazing things like using electricity on ground pokemon! I always knew you were special!"
"Pika?"
<everyone laughs>
To be continued....

In the next episode, Ash becomes a Fairy.

' with you Pikachu shouldn't be fairy type it makes it so different in the anime. In a bunch of old episodes with the current match up and then the new match up it makes everything a lie! and I know snubbul is a classed the fairy pokemon and yeah it could be fairy type my problem with it is granbul it doesn't suit fairy type

It's good that fire gets a boost I mean it's beaten by water, ground and rock and beats ice and grass t needs a 3rd type that's remotely weak to it

These are all Pokémon that I think might be seen as some kind of fairy. Some may suggest a slightly different list, but this is what I consider Pokémon that are most like fairies. Sometimes a type needs to be replaced as opposed to being simply added to a single type, but perhaps something like Clefairy could simple be pure Fairy. Interestingly, all pokémon on this list are Psychic or Normal types:

  • Cleffa, Clefairy, Clefable (Normal/Fairy)
  • Igglybuff, Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff (Normal/Fairy)
  • Happiny, Chansey, Blissey (Normal/Fairy)
  • Snubbull, Granbull (Normal/Fairy)
  • Celebi (would become Grass/Fairy intead of Grass/Psychic)
  • Togepi ,Togetic, Togekiss (Normal or Flying would have to replaced with Fairy)
  • Abra, Kadabra, Alakazam (Psychic/Fairy)
  • Ralts, Kirlia, Gardevoir (I did not include Gallade, as it will likely be that that would have to remain Psychic/Fighting while Ralts, Kirlia and Gardevoir become Psychic/Fairy dual types)
  • Jirachi (This could become a Fairy/Steel-type as opposed to Psychic/Steel).
  • Uxie (Psychic/Fairy)
  • Mesprit (Psychic/Fairy)
  • Azelf (Psychic/Fairy)
  • Audino (Normal/Fairy)
  • Munna, Musharna (Psychic/Fairy)
  • Gothita, Gothorita, Gothitelle (Psychic/Fairy)
  • Meloetta (This one has two different forms it can assume, one Normal/Fighting and one Normal/Psychic. They could replace that Normal type with Fairy)
  • Sylveon (Pure Fairy)
  • Spoink, Grumpig (Psychic/Fairy)
  • Drowzee, Hypno (Psychic/Fairy)

This is quite a substantial list, that could include Pokémon not yet revealed, making it even longer. If the Fairy type could be seen as more of a 'light-type', than some Electric pokémon, such as Ampharos or Eelektross, could be part of the new type as well. I personally hope the Fairy type does indeed happen, or at least any new type. That could shake things up and make the game more dynamic. To the people complaining about these new potential types being similar to Psychic or Electric, what about Rock and Ground? They are similar, yet have been there from the start. They're often even coupled like with Geodude or Onix.

The mystery of Sylveon's type does indeed suggest they will add another element type. It has my support, as it gives veteran players like me something to play around and strategize with that I have never seen before.

In Japan, the dark type refers to something along the lines of "dirty fighting" which is why it was changed to dark here, it just makes more sense. Fighting is strong against dark, because it's seen as the opposite. Heroic, martial arts fighters, overcoming the dark tricksters.

A light type wouldn't make sense in this context and giving dark another weakness wouldn't be a good for competitive players.

If fairy type is real (and all evidence points to that being the case) then it's going to follow more of the broad Japanese meaning as well and most likely include mythological type Pokemon, not simply winged sprites, which would also explain Xerneas' type. Pokemon like Absol, Mawile and Milotic are more likely to become Fairies over things like Jigglypuff or Togepi. Being pink and cute doesn't make something a fairy.

I never thought Sylveon was a normal type, to be honest. For a start it kind of went against the whole concept of eevee and its evolutions in the first place. Not to mention, it was far too spritely looking to just be a normal type. I wonder how long it will take until GF just outright confirms the new type exists and how it functions and I'm interested in seeing what name it officially goes by. Kind of hoping its "Light" or, preferably, "Magic", as I feel they both roll off the tongue better.

As for changing the types of pokemon from the past to better suit this new addition, yeah I can definitely see that happening. But not excessively.

Dude dark is isn't dark because of dirty fighting why do you think it's evil type in japan. It's dark magic. And no just because something is pink doesn't make it fairy but being in fairy egg group or classed as the fairy pokemon looking like a fairy and being called clefairy makes it fairy type. Milotic yeah it probably would be fairy. Personally mawile shouldn't be fairy. Absol is dark type shouldn't be fairy type being the disaster pokemon you say these would be more like fairies than jigglypuff (fair enough) and togepi (cuz yeah that doesn't look anything fairyish (sarcasm)) I don't know what the rest of you think but I don't agree with what highwinter said
