I hate the fairy type because of what it does. yes I know dragons usually have super high stats and can be very super powerful especially in professional competition, but for the average player they are balenced. Weak against ice and their own type, which is also their only strength, and also super hard to train, they dont have the advantage enough for that.
I'm fine with them relabeling pokemon with the type, and even moves if they do as they did that with the addition of Steel and Dark in Gen 2 which is my favorite gen, but I do question what pokemon they are picking
I mean for heavens sake, Mawille? Thats not a damn fairy!
I am fine with Mega Evolutions though. to me its kinda a replacement to battle items. I never use battle items, and as such In battles im generally at a disadvantage. As this is in a battle only evolution, I see it as kinda a different way to do battle items as I enjoy that. I also enjoy that its a way to put in different forms without them being useless, aesthetic or just frustrating to obtain
It also kinda is like focus energy and those other in battle stat boosts just in a more powerful way.
I get everyone is likely to feel very uniquely about this though.
I am pissed about them messing with Blaziken though. I mean no, I'm sorry but starters are a no go. Don't mess with them. They have a type and a format and should stay to that, messing with them just sucks in my eyes.
Also I dont know how many people saw this but thought id share it anywayhttp://au.ign.com/videos/2013/07/15/pokemon-generations-commentary
This is why I'm pissed they are moving to 3d. There is NOTHING wrong with 3d sprite work. I LOVE sprites, and its a dying art which makes me so sad. Id rather them keep that alive, and make the above sort of game with full 3d, distinguish that way, then go 3d like they have and do it for only aesthetic purposes. Also I have this fear it will greatly slow down the game with new animations and details etc. In fact i ususally turn off battle animations as it makes it faster, and I have a distinct feeling that wont be an option here.
