Anyone else think fairy is gonna be the overpowered type of this gen?
Let's look back: Gen 1, no counter to psychic (the only ghost had a poison dual-type and no good ghost moves, bugs were useless)
Gen 2 on-wards: Dragon, steel and dark were always strong to various degrees, gen 5 saw the rise of fighting types.
Now in Gen 6, we have one counter to the strongest types nowadays: fight, dark and dragon. All you need to cover for is steel - poison has always been useless.
My questions are: Is everyone who DOESN'T include a fairy pokemon in their team an idiot? Will dragons disappear or be a very scarce sight? Will poison start to be a decent type for once? Will fire types be on the rise to counter the indirectly buffed steel types?

This isn't /cpg/. Post your non-showderp battles or replays here instead: >>13914149
Filter instead of saging if you don't like us.
Here we call for a champ. First person to claim when previous champ steps down gets it.
Champs, use a tripcode so no one impersonates you.
Showderp then suggests any legal Pokemon.
The first six suggestions are used to make a team to challenge OU (or other tiers if champ likes).
After a few battles, champ will then call "new team" or "new champ", and the cycle continues.
Oh, and there's a lot of other stuff you can figure out by lurking a bit more.
Have fun, and be most excellent to each other!

Alright, I'd like to bring something to everyone's attention that I have not seen discussed yet.
There has been a theory on Litleo evolving into a manticore which has been debunked, Spritzee becoming a plague doctor, the starters being a knight/mage/thief trio, but I haven't seen a lot of specific theories for a specific inspiration for Clauncher and Skrelp. So consider the following:
Skrelp's head, to me anyway, looks like it could be a pirate hat. Also, the Pokedex entry says something along the lines of Skrelp trapping prey at sea, and I thought of pirates capturing people as well. So, I present the "Pirate Skrelp" evolution theory.
So where does Clauncher fit in this? Well, many old ships used for war or piracy had cannons on board. So I believe Clauncher will be based off of a cannon. It already uses its claw to launch attacks, so that is not too far of a stretch at all.
Also I think it would be awesome if Clauncher had Skill Link with a new repeating move that is Electric type
So ITT post similar ideas, or post your thoughts on this.

Once X and Y release, I'm picking Fennekin, my best bro's picking Froakie, and my gf is picking Chespin. We're essentially doing tandem rival runs, stopping at certain points in the story and having "rival battles" so we're all playing at the same pace.
ITT: Post your plans for X/Y's release, involving your friends or otherwise.
