That's because the full list of Fairy's strengths and weaknesses has not been revealed yet. The next CoroCoro will be showing the full list of type matchups for Fairy, so far we know it gets resisted by Fire and is strong against Dragon.

I would be happy if HM's weren't as big of a deal as they are in the other games...

I wonder if Mewtwo will have a part in the new story, since they have played him up a lot. But you're right, I want to see Mew's mega-evolution.

The only HMs that really require story progression are Cut, Fly, Surf & Waterfall.. the rest are just space fillers tbh.

Cut and Waterfall in Gen V sort of also felt like filler Hm's as they were mostly used to gain access to places with rare items...and Fly...they could remove it and have us walk all the way back...but that's just cruel.

Not really, it'll help increase your Pokémon's happiness more, as well as hatching eggs.

We know that Fairy do neutral damage to Electric and Water do neutral damage to Fairy too from the demo.

OK, so that's four confirmed matchups against Fairy. But still I'm hoping when the full type matchups are revealed I'm hoping it won't be a disappointment, if the strong against Dark rumor is true then that means Sableye and Spiritomb will now have a true weakness.

Well, technically it does have a weakness, it's just the ability cancels it out. So up to the point of negating Levitate, it doesn't have a weakness.. And there may be new ways coming on that front.

I think the point was, that Sableye and Spiritomb would finally have a weakness, as they have three immunities, and everything else is either resisted or normal damage...
So to make Ghost resistant to Fairy would make them take normal damage from Fairy instead of finally having a weakness (as no other pokemon is as such without an ability, like the aforementioned Elektross being immune to its only type-weakness, ground, because of levitate)

But its not like that they are really overpowered(they nice pokemons, not a powerhouse), and the fact that they have no weakness thats what make them unique and diffeirent, I hope that they will stay like this

Having no weakness means nothing if your defenses are bad, though Game Freak's logic on balancing Pokémon with no weakness is giving them low speed, which didn't help Sableye (without Prankster) and Spiritomb much, since Ghost types usually have low HP.

If you use trick and give it a ring target it gets it's weakness back then.

Or use Grasto acid to nullify the ability, or by giving it an Iron Ball by using Trick room, or a Pokémon with Mold breaker (and it's other versions) facing off against it. Either way under normal conditions it has no weakness.

I do hope that Ghost receives neutral damage...unless GF plans to evolve Sableye and Spiritomb as they will need a weakness to not be OP with they got said evolutions or Mega Evolutions.

Right now with the current situation(no weakness, stats and abilities) there is no problem, they are not overpowered but still useful.

And of course having no weakness doesn't mean the pokemon great defensively, but it make them really useful.

A poison type will be cool. Maybe the Z legend will be a Poison/Steel sea serpent!

That's what I thought, it would be our first Poison type legendary to say the least!

I like that idea, and I want to see some more Fairy-type Legendaries besides Xerneas. Or at least I'm hoping they make the resident cute 100-stats-all-around Legendary a Fairy-type, it would be a great way to showcase the new type. If an Eeveelution and one of the version mascots is showcasing it, why not the cute Legendary as well?

Gyarados isn't a real Kraken even though it's beta name had the word in it. A Kraken is more of a giant squid like creature than a sea serpent which is what Gyarados really is.
