Do We Really Need Fairy Type? Gamefreak's Announcement of New Pokemon in Generations X and Y
by Kathy Balla
Some say it's not official yet, some say it is, and that Gamefreak has already added 4 Pokemon; the new eeveelution - Sylveon, along with Jigglypuff, Gardevoir and Marill
Say hello to your new type
Many have objected for the past two games and gens that they have gone off-road with the designs of Pokemon, that they have lost their realism, but adding a new type was something that outraged many gamers since we haven't had a new type of Pokemon since the 2nd generation or so.
Why create a new type that is actually something irrelevant with the rest of the types?
This idea has a lot of fans, as dragon type was a little bit difficult to beat, suggesting other existing Pokemon have it as a secondary type or even as their primary type. Some of these are actually suitable to the fairy type (like Celebi which we can see it is like a fairy with his powers and its appearance), but there are other suggestions like Snubbull which - like its name is stating - is more like a bull or a dog, but not like a fairy.
Another addition to Fairy type are Mime Jr. and Mr. Mime, presumably just because they look like people which isn't actually fitting in a supposedly fairy-looking type.
Whether the Fairy Type passes or not, we really have to think:
Why do we want to change Pokemon so much?
I personally cannot accept any other Pokemon than those of the first 4 generations. It seems like Pokemon became screwed up after the 4th generation, and I'm pretty sure a lot of people agree with me.
The world of Pokemon was actually enjoyable till the moment GF and Nintendo saw it as a money source and forgot that it is one of the best(-selling) game, anime and manga of all time.Originally Published Jun. 11th 2013
