I love Pokémon and have been watching the anime/cartoon ever since I was a little child! Pokémon is still popular!
Beauty, Cuteness & Strength All in One
According to the Pokémon Database, "The Fairy type was introduced in Generation 6. It was the first new type in more than 12 years! Its main intention was to balance the type chart by reducing the power of dragons, while also giving an offensive boost to the Poison and Steel types. Several old Pokémon were retyped and new Pokémon introduced."
Of the 60 or so fairy type Pokémon, who are the most beautiful? Who's considered the cutest? Who is strongest? Find out here as I reveal my nine favorite fairies.
Top 9 Fairy Type Pokémon
- Alolan Ninetales
- Mega Audino
1. Alolan Ninetales
This gorgeous ice and fairy type Pokémon is one of the most elegant in the Pokédex. With flowing icy blue hair, Ninetales in the Alola region looks like an arctic fox in real life. Able to learn ice, psychic, and fairy attacks through leveling up as a Vulpix, Alolan Ninetales is really versatile in battles. If you want an Alolan Ninetails, catch an Alolan Vulpix and evolve it using the ice stone.
Fairy type Pokémon is very rare. It is only less rare than ice and ghost types. So, it might be hard to get a fairy type Pokémon in the wild. Luckily, you can get a fairy type Pokémon by picking the right starter. In generation VII, you can pick Popplio as your starter. This little water Pokémon will eventually evolve into Primarina, a water and fairy type. Primarina looks a little bit like a mermaid with a beautiful tail and long flowing turquoise hair. This elegant Pokémon is able to learn both water and fairy type moves.
This generation I Pokémon was re-categorized as fairy type in generation VI. With baby pink color and an adorable face, Clefable and its pre-evolutions are some of the cutest in the whole series. It is notoriously difficult to capture in the Pokémon world because they are all incredibly shy and try to avoid humans whenever possible. Known as the moon Pokémon, Clefable learns many attacks and status moves that are related to the moon. They are known to hang out near Mt. Moon. So, that's where you can find them for sure!
This fairy and steel type legendary Pokémon might not be the cutest. But, he is one of the coolest and most powerful looking fairy legendary Pokémon in the series. With a sword in his mouth, Zacian is ready to take on strong opponents. Even though this Pokémon has a very serious facial expression, its colors are pink and blue which are fitting for fairy types. Zacian is really one of the strongest fairy type legendary beast.
Alcremie is one of the newest fairy type Pokémon in the Galar region. This Pokémon is small, standing at only one foot tall. Resembling whip cream, Alcremie is one of the most unique fairy type Pokémon. Able to evolve into different colors of Alcremie depending on the cream Milcery is holding, number of swirls, and the time of day. You can literally get 70 different forms of Alcremie! What's more amazing? This Pokémon is able to gigantamax into a huge cake Pokémon. Alcremie is definitely a fairy Pokémon that is both cute and strong!
This fairy type Pokémon is an acquired taste. Although not as cute as its pre-evolution, Snubbull, it will start to grow on you especially if you are a bulldog lover. When a dog has a prominent underbite, it is especially cute. Just think about the English Bulldog. Granbull looks very tough, but it has a very timid temperament. So, don't judge a book by its cover! There is a soft side to the tough looking Granbull! For the long term Pokémon anime lovers, do you still remember Madame Muchmoney's Granbull? Her Granbull was actually a Snubbull that evolved into a Granbull. The red bow on top of its head is just so fitting.
7. Mega Audino
Upon its mega evolution, Audino evolves into a normal and fairy type Pokémon. Mega Audino is not only very cute, but incredibly useful as well. This is the sidekick of nurse Joy. So, what if your Pokémon is feeling under the weather? Not to worry, Audino is able to help it feel better by applying what it learned at the nursing school. When Audino mega evolves, it gains a more fairy like appearance through cream color fur, bright pink eyes, and a cream pinkish color cape.
Eevee is a Pokémon that is loved by many, it is able to evolve into a pure fairy type, Sylveon. This little Pokémon is very cute with white, pink, and blue colors. With a ribbon around its neck and ear, Sylveon is probably one of the cutest evolved form of Eevee. Actually, all Eevee evolutions are incredibly good looking. Sylveon is not only good looking, it is also very elegant with its movements. Do you remember Serena's Eevee evolving into Sylveon? It showed off its moves in the most elegant performance.
Xerneas is a pure fairy type legendary Pokémon introduced in generation VI when fairy types debuted. Able to give eternal life, Xerneas is the counterpart of Yveltal. It mostly hibernates in the form of a tree. Upon its transformation from a tree to its active form, Xerneas' horns shine seven colors ready to share eternal life or revive those turned into stone by Yveltal. When the world is in great peril due to Yveltal's rage, Xerneas will awaken and restore life and balance to the Pokémon world. This legendary Pokémon is not only regal looking but extremely powerful as well.
