All Fairy-type weaknesses in the Pokémon series
The Fairy type classification in Pokemon was added solely for the purpose of adding a type that could be strong against Dragon-type Pokemon that previously only had Ice and other Dragon-types to worry about. However, since they’re so powerful themselves, you’ll need some counters whenever you encounter a Fairy Pokémon. Here are all types of Pokemon that are strong against fairies.

All types that are strong against Fairy-types in Pokémon
There are two types of Pokémon moves that Fairy-types are weak against, Poison and Steel. Traditionally, these two types have usually been considered quite niche. Steel types were best known for their defense stats and Poison for their status condition effect.
Below is a list of moves we recommend especially against Fairy-types. They will help you drain opponent’s health quickly.
- Poison – Gunk Shot, Burp, Sludge Wave, Sludge Bomb, Cross Poison, Poison Jab, Sludge
- Steel – Iron Head, Flash Cannon, Meteor Mash, Heavy Slam, Gyro Ball, Iron Tail
Keep in mind that you don’t always need to have a Poison or Steel-type Pokemon for your party to learn the above moves. While the same type of Pokemon it learns makes the move stronger, you can take advantage of different Pokemon it learns to have a more well-rounded attack.
It’s also a good idea to have an idea of what areas Fairy types are strong in. Avoid going against them with Dark, Fighting, Bug, and as mentioned above, Dragon types. Remember that they are totally resistant to dragon-type moves. Fee doesn’t have many weaknesses, but sometimes you can face off against a dual-type who has an extra set of weaknesses that you can exploit.
