    I dunno, it feels less "fairy"-ish to me than Pikachu or Pichu. :s

    I knew Fairy-type would become a reality, ever since I noticed the leaked source have several things confirmed in which were true, such as the names of the new Pokémon. And as well as the Mewtwo forme.

    But over all... I think Fairy-type is a brilliant new type to have, as far as the leaked source said about Fairy-type... it's also strong against Dark-type and Fighting-type, which means it will break the no-weakness issue with Dark/Ghost types such as Spiritomb. Even though Odor Sleuth and Foresight can be used and then a Fighting-type move, but that would still take two turns to defeat it.

    Surely Dragon-types already have two weaknesses, which are Dragon and Ice, but adding in another weakness balances things more, since most Dragon-type moves are very powerful and most Dragon-type Pokémon have been really powerful, especially Hydreigon. But the best thing of all is that Fairy-type is immune to Dragon-type moves from what the leaked source said, so it'll be really interesting. :P

    And here's the thing, "fairy" doesn't always mean those mystical flying things that you'd see in movies or anything. It can mean beauty, cuteness or even something inter-galactic. Like for instance, Marill is a Water/Fairy because of it's cuteness. And I do have a feeling that Milotic could end up becoming a Water/Fairy because of it's high beauty.

    Anyways, as for release date, I'm so glad to hear that they've proven me wrong by saying that the release date is going to be worldwide on the same day. 'Cause I thought it was going to be separate days within October. xD

    Also, concerning X & Y, there was new released of Mega Pokemon yesterday.

    This Article.

    So, with all the other iffy Pokemon already seen, Mega Pokemon are released. There are possibly still more to come but I have mixed opinions about this. It seems as if they have lost ideas for Pokemon and I really hope it doesn't follow the path of Digimon. I mean, don't get me wrong, some of these Pokemon do look quite epic. These are gonna be really OP anyway; Lucario w/ Adaptability; that's 2x more powerful STAB moves. Ampharos is now also Dragon type. And to keep the conversation about Fairy types, Mawile is now Steel and Fairy. The Pokemon will need to be holding a Mega Stone to evolve to their Mega forms, I guess that's the best way to do it depending on how easy it is to obtain a Dragon stone. These are gonna be pretty much legendary Pokemon, in my opinion.

    What do you guys think?

    This picture confirms how Mega Evolution will work:

    [​IMG]

    I like the idea of Mega Evolution but I wish it would apply to all Pokemon because it apparently doesn't. That's not fair.

    Here are 5 Pokemon I hope get a Mega Evolution:

    1. Snorlax
    2. Feraligatr
    3. Exploud
    4. Spiritomb
    5. Krookodile

    The details of the Fairy type has been released. Fairy is super effective on Fighting, Dark and Dragon and not effective on Fire, Poison or Steel. It is weak to Poison and Steel and resists Fighting, Dark and Bug. It is immune to Dragon.

    Hydreigon: "WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS!?!"

    The Steel type apparently loses its resistances to Dark and Ghost though. I feel bad for Metagross.

    That makes no sense to me. Steel has always been a super-defensive type with little offensive power. It seems so arbitrary to remove those two resistances - it's not like Steel was horribly unbalanced or anything. I mean, I can kind of understand Dragon, but Steel was fine as it was.

    And so the first evolutions of the starters have been revealed! Quilladin, Braixen and Frogaider!

    I kind of think, Chespin's evolution line seem to be heading in the direction of becoming armoured, I sense the word 'Paladin' in Quilladin's name. Could it's next evolution be named 'Knighthorn'? As in Knight and Thorn. And according to the leak in May on PokéBeach, it's gonna be Grass/Dark!

    As for Braixen, I definitely just knew that Fennekin's evolution lines would be standing on two legs... just like all Fire-type starter evolutions. But Braixen wields a twig that can be set alight from friction of it's fur, now it's kind of getting me the idea of what it's final evolution would be like. I'll match up the info that was given to PokéBeach and then was leaked by WPM, apparently it says that it will be Fire/Psychic, so something tells me that it's final evolution will be a mage! Yes a mage holding a large twig like a staff! A Pokémon that would send balls of fire from it's twig across to opposing Pokémon. So you could just imagine a Will-O-Wisp being performed there by the final evolution of Fennekin! Yay! That makes me want to choose Fennekin more! xD

    Hm... Frogaider... interesting! This frog Pokémon seems rather taller, but from what PokéBeach said... it's final evolution will be Water/Fighting! So I can picture how it would look like, just imagine a bulky looking frog Pokémon as the final evolution. :P

    As a big fan of Chespin, I was soooo disappointed by its middle stage evolution. However, I've grown passed that now and I'm really pulling for a fantastic final evolution. Otherwise, I think I'm learning more towards Froakie or Fennekin as my starter. Except maybe not Fennekin, because there are so many awesome Fire-types this generation I don't know which one I want to use!
