What’s good against Fairy Type Pokemon?

 

Introduction

Fairy type is one of the 18 Pokemon types with the most limited species.

This type was launched in Generation VI. There were 59 Fairy-type Pokemon by Generation VIII, or you can say 6.57% of all Pokemon. Thus, making it the third rarest Pokemon type after Ghost and Ice.

Fairy type pokemon can deal damage physically, but the stronger of their attacks are special moves.

They are represented by the pink color and are symbolized by two shapes. One of the shapes resembles a star, and the other resembles a pair of wings.

 

Weaknesses Of Fairy Type Pokemon

Fairy type Pokemon has a strong defense against Fighting, Dragon, and Dark type Pokemon.

This type is also immune to Fighting, Bug, Dragon, and Dark type damage.

Although this is one of the rarest types of Pokemon, it still has some weaknesses like other Pokemon. For example, fairy type Pokemon is weak against Poison, Steel, and Fire type Pokemon.

But, Poison type is vulnerable to Psychic type moves, which are frequently learned by Fairy type Pokemon.

Also, all three types that are strong against Fairy type are weak against Ground type, so Fairy and Ground make a lethal combination against the Poison, Steel, and Fire Type Pokemon.

 

 

What Pokemon Have a Good Defense Against Attacks From Fairy Pokemon?

 

Following Pokemon have a good defense against attacks from Fairy type Pokemon:

 

Poison Type

By Generation VIII, there are 71 Poison type Pokemon making up 7.88% of all Pokemon. It is the 8th rarest type of Pokemon after Fire and before Ground.

When a Poison type takes its shot, it never misses. Therefore, poison type Pokemon cannot be toxicated except by a Pokemon with Corrosion ability such as Salandit and Salazzle.

Poison type releases a poison or bad poison as a damaging move. Poison type forms a great pair with Ground type making it one of the most potent duos.

 

Steel Type

In generation VIII, there are 64 Steel type Pokemon making up 7.1% of all Pokemon. Steel type is the 6th rarest type of Pokemon.

If you are against a Fairy type in a fight, the first Pokemon type to go for will be Steel type pokemon with high damage powers.

As I mentioned earlier, Steel type Pokemon are also immune to poison except for a Pokemon with corrosion.

Steel type holds out against Normal and Psychic type Pokemon, making Steel the most defensive type of Pokemon. Steel type is also immune to sandstorm.
