The 5 best Fairy Pokémon
The Strongest Fairy Pokemon You Should Use
If you have been living under a rock, then it might come as a surprise that Game Freaks has introduced a new type in Pokémon X&Y. Fairies add an extra level to the rock- paper -scissor formula of Pokémon, not to mention that the new type successfully counters Dragons to a degree.
You will find fairy types to be particularly useful in battle with a number of properties to take advantage of. What I have noticed about fairy Pokémon is that they typically have very good special attack and special defense. Furthermore, many fairy Pokémon have the sublime move “Wish”, which is the perfect move to support ailing team mates that have low HP. However, the biggest perk of using fairies is the immunity to Dragon type moves.
With so many great properties and so many Pokémon to pick up from, it may be difficult to select the best fairy Pokémon for your team. To help my fellow Pokémon trainers, here are my picks for the best Fairy Pokémon.
Description: Intertwining Pokemon
Ability: Cute Charm
Sylveon is one of my favourite Pokemon of the new generation. Sylveon has all the traits to be a premier special wall. It has good defensive typing, good HP and special defensive stat – which makes Sylveon a well rounded Pokemon. Sylveon’s biggest asset is the move “Wish” in which he can pass on HP to wounded team members. In my opinion Sylveon is one of the best fairy Pokemon.
Description: Jubilee Pokemon
Ability: Serene Grace
A once part normal type, now upgraded to a sublime fairy, Togekiss has to be on the list. Togekiss is one of the hardest Pokemon to take out. Simply because it has incredible bulk and access to Roost for recovery. Togekiss bread and butter strategy paraflinching makes it an extremely dangerous Pokemon. As such it is only befitting for Togekiss to be on the best of fairy Pokemon list.
Name: Mega Gardevoir
Description: Embrace Pokémon
It comes to no surprise that I consider Mega Gardevoir one of the best fairy Pokemon. Mega Gardevoir is most impressive on the offensive front. A base 165 Special Attack is nothing to laugh at. What makes thing worse is that Mega Gardevoir has respectful bulk, so it can be very difficult to handle without loosing a Pokemon or two. For this reason Mega Gardevoir is one of the best fairy Pokemon.
Name: Mega Mawile
Type: Steel/ Fairy
Description: Deceiver Pokémon
Ability: Huge Power
Mega Mawile is a significant improvement from its regular form, which is a god send to Mawile fans. Mega evolutions have given boosts to already powerful Pokemon, I am just glad that GameFreaks did not forget about the little guys.Mega Mawile may not look much, but looks can be deceiving, this Pokemon is incredibly powerful thanks to the ability huge power. In my opinion, to take full advantage of Mega Mawile incredible attack stat, you need to build a team around him. If I were to use Mega Mawile – I would opt for a paralysis support team which should offset his terrible speed. Bulky T-wave users like Cresselia and Uxie would be my choice, both have good synergy with Mega Mawile. And of course, stealth rocks are a must.
Description: Garden Pokémon
Ability: Flower Veil.
Florges is very much like Sylveon but with a much better special defense and special attack. Of course it wouldn’t be a Fairy Pokeon without the sublime move “Wish”. In fact both Pokemon are so similar that I am a torn whether to pick Florges over Sylveon for my team.
