I feel awful that I've not remembered all of the fairy type strengths and weaknesses yet even though the type was introduced in X&Y, and that I'm still not used to the changes made to the steel type. It just doesn't seem to stick. ):

How are you with memorizing type advantages?

I'm sure I'm forgetting a couple resistances that got removed/changed to dark and steel in the last generatios... otherwise I think I remember them pretty well.

I forget resistances more than weaknesses because weaknesses tend to make more sense logically.
One think that helps me nail them down is the a possible reason for that weakness/resistance, especially the less obvious ones.

Fairy types for examples are weak to poison and steel because they are based on a whole lot of mythological creatures and folklore from various cultures: fairies, gnomes, leprechauns, banshee... most of these have myths about them on how to ward them off, the most common ones being wearing something made of iron or various erbs (of which some were poisonous).
I love to read little things like that and if it helps me remember something even better

I don't have all of them memorized, no. Sometimes I forget a couple here and there. Generation VI makes it a little harder sometimes, too, consider more than just Fairy added new weaknesses and strengths, honestly. I believe Steel lost two resistances, but that doesn't always cross my mind.

Oh yeah, I know all of them off the top of my head, hehe. I learned them pretty early on actually, back around the DPP days not long after I first started getting into Pokemon.

I've played Pokémon so much in the past that I know them all from the top of my head, yes lol. It's definitely easier than having all moves or something crazy like that memorized.
The world was full of cravens who pretended to be heroes; it took a queer sort of courage to admit to cowardice as he had.

I try my best to have them memorized, but sometimes I forget certain resistances.

Definitely with you on the resistances. Some resistances I fail to understand the logic behind and some I just forget!

DPP was my very first pokemon game that I owned and played!

have them memorized yeah. but at first, fairy confused me several times. (i first thought fire was also super-effective against fairy :p)
there are moments of brain-fart though, especially when you're playing online

I thought everyone did at this point. Aside from the newer fans, of course.

I only listen to high-quality video game rips.

i know i mostly do, only ones i sometimes mess up is with dark cuz i keep forgetting that they are weak to fighting and bug, and fairy because i haven't truly gotten used to how many there are in the games. Other than that most of them are easy to remember so long as you play the game and try moves out on other pokemon and basically throw stuff at a wall till one sticks and is super effective.
