Smogon's ASB is moving between two generations. Not only does this mean new Pokémon, but this also means new moves, new abilities, Mega Evolutions, and, possibly the most hyped part of the new generation, a type chart revamp. Not only does Steel lose its resistance to Dark and Ghost, but there is an entirely new typing for the first time since Generation II—the Fairy-type. While some may write off the Fairies immediately, it is a very interesting typing, to say the least. It is immune to Dragon and resists Dark and Fighting, completely destroying previous combinations of coverage. Their weaknesses, Poison and Steel, aren't really good attacking types either. With many Pokémon also changed into Fairies, the Fairy-type seems to be a big threat this generation.
