A pokemon doesn't have to look like it's type to be that type. Look at Sudowoodo.

EDIT: And we now have undisputable proof of Fairy type's existence.

Sucks the leaker had to get fired from his job. Honestly, I'm glad we won't be getting more leaks. Here's hoping Sylveon's type is officially unveiled on Smash today. Probably wont.

Sudowoodo was supposed to be a fake out, though. Hence the name (psuedo wood...oh). Most other pokemon are supposed to look like their type. If there are any other exceptions, it would have to be for a very good reason...

Well, there are some Pokémon who are hard to judge the type of based on their looks. Take Gothitelle for example...

I thought it was supposed to be a reference to being a dragonfly!

But yea, pretty hype for Fairy type. This could change the metagame completely in a positive way if they handle it right.

Since Psychics are often more humanoid, yes. Very much so.

It looks more dark to me.

Besides, "Fairy" doesn't necessarily means"cute pink blob with wings and girly girlyness". Several pokemon could be considered "fairy" as in, spirit of X, Guardian of Y, pokemon from legend, pokemon designed to look like Z mythical/fairy tale creature, etc.

Doesn't look like a Dragon, does it?

Anyways, excited for the fairy type! Im curious what they will call it in English.

Why? Because of the dark colors? I guess Jinx should be Dark, too, by your logic? What about Luxray? Claydol? Unknown?

My point is, Dark-color does not necessarily coincide with Dark Pokemon, and a lot of non-darks, particularly Psychic pokemon, are dark colored, too. There's more to dark pokemon than that. They're supposed to look evil and/or menecing, and while dark colors do help in the regard, they aren't always a good indicator. Nothing about Gothitelle looks evil, so I don't see how you could say it looks like a dark type.

Except dragon type often look either terrifying or Majestic. Altaria is very much the latter. Also, they're often based on Mythological dragons, which Altaria is - it's based off of the Chinese Peng, a Giant Bird which has the head of a dragon, and Cloud-like Wings.

Off topic, but I've always loved Altaria's cry <333
I always saw Vibrava as a dragonfly, as well, so it makes great sense, to me. Not really sure how Trapinch turns into it, though... ._.

Always found it interesting how Trapinch has the same high Attack stat as Flygon.
Anyways, I can't say I'm hyped for this Fairy Type but that's probably just because it's new. If this new typing means another resistance in Dragon, then I kinda welcome it.

@RedPanda Haha, yes Altaria has a very nice cry. My favourite cry is probably Frosslass's.

@CanisWolfred Well, i learn something new everyday. Never knew Altaria was based on that.

Not really, it looks like a pretty basic version of a gothic lolita. I relate "gothic" to "dark" in my mind.

Jynx looks like some kind of pseudo valkyrie.

And no, I don't think dark types necessarily NEED to be menacing beasts of dark evilness. They can also be implike or just plain mischievous (like sneasel, though most of the do evolve into menacing things).

It's off topic I know but I this needs to be said. I think that my favourite cry has got to be meloetta
and on the subject of cries I think someone needs to have a longer cry than jynx of 2,24 I haven't completed my dex so if there is a pokemon with longer cry then tell me
and can someone explain to me why on the pokedex for cries it says 00:00 why 2 digits when no one has a 10 second cry

Gothic Lolita isn't really related to anything dark, though, outside of the color scheme. It's meant to be more elegant, and even "cute", unlike western gothic fasion.

I thought I said "and/or Mischievous"? I meant to say it. Maybe I forgot when I went to go check the spelling for "Mischievous"...XP

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.

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.

Well dark type moves DOES include moves like biting, tormenting and fake crying. XD
