That's right, folks. A new type has been anounced: the fairy type. According to Nintendo's video, the Fairy type includes the new Eeveelution, Sylveon, as well as Jigglypuff, Gardevoir, and for some reason Marill. With moves such as Moonblast, it's super effective against Dragon.
Also released is something called Pokemon-amie. Apparently, you can now pet, feed, and play with your Pokémon to raise friendship. Which is pretty freaking awesome.
They also said an official release date: October 12. So set your calanders and start saving up!
Stay awesome, Pokéfans;
