Fairy-Type Pokemon were introduced to the game in generation 6 and have been quite popular since. These characters have an incredible immunity to the strong Dragon-Type characters. It is this immunity to the strong Dragon-Type characters, which makes them unique.

There are several such Pokemons—some more popular than others for reasons like design, moves, stats, and accessibility. Fairy-Type Pokemon's fan reception is reminiscent of the time new types of Gameboy (gold and silver) colors were introduced.
