The Fairy type (フェアリータイプ Fearī taipu in Japanese) is one of the eighteen Pokémon elemental types.

This type was introduced in Generation VI, to balance the power the Dragon type had, just like the Dark and Steel types did in Generation II.

Fairy-type Pokémon are mostly cute, pink or feminine in appearance, but even though, Fairy-type Pokémon can be really powerful. Fairy types also have some magical appeal to them. As an oppose to Psychic-type Pokémon, Fairy-type Pokémon have powers related to magic and supernatural powers, instead of mind power.

The only known famous Fairy-type Pokémon Trainer is Valerie, the sixth Gym Leader of the Kalos region.

Relations with other types

  • They're weak against the Steel type because according to European traditions, fairies were killed with iron. Also, in some stories fairies could not touch steel because it burned them when touched.
  • They're weak against the Poison type because fairies represent purity and poison the pollution. Also in some stories, villains gave fairies poison to make them grow weak.
  • They're strong against the Dragon type because in mythology, fairies' magic could dominate oriental dragons, even though in European legends, the dragons were immune to magic.
  • They're strong against the Dark type because fairies represent light and the darkness disappears with light. Also, fairies represent goodness, and this always wins against evil.
  • They're strong against the Fighting type because physical strength can't do anything against magic.
  • They resist the Bug type because in pop culture, fairies live along insects and bugs.
