Fairy-type Pokemon Known Weaknesses and Resistance

The Pokemon phenomenon comes with 18 Pokemon types. Out of all of them, there is one with the most limited species, and that’s Fairy. It was added in generation six, and it is the newest one to the series. However, this does not mean that there aren’t powerful Fairy-type Pokemon.

When it comes to Pokemon Go, all of the types come with some strengths and weaknesses, and this will show their evolution in battles. Fairy-type Pokemon can beat Dragon, Dark, and Fighting-type Pokemon, but they cannot handle Poison and Steel types. They are vulnerable to two different types of moves, and you need to be prepared for your next battle.

In this article, we will tell you more about the best Pokemon you can use in order to defeat Fairy types.


Poison is the perfect choice for you. We think that a combination between Grass and Poison will do you good, so choose Roserade. If you also get Poison Jab and Sludge Bomb, you will defeat the Fairy type in no time.

Other options would be Scolipede, Vileplume, Toxicroak or Victreebel.

All of these will give you the resistance you need to Fairy-type attacks.


This represents a great weakness for the Fairy-type Pokemon, and you will get a sure win with the steek-types. It would help if you had a high damage output, and this is a great type for that. Metagross is what you need, with the Bullet Punch and Meteor Crash moves, which will help you win in no time.

If the battle allows it, you might want to choose the Legendary Pokemon Dialga, which has high powerful damage output and a lot of moves just perfect for the battle – Metal Claw and Iron Head are lit.

Genesect is also a good choice since it can use Metal Claw and Magnet Bomb no matter the form it has.

Before starting, keep in mind that you need to choose one that’s suitable for the kind of battle you’re about to have.
