This page has nothing to do with Cosmic Quest. I am not a fan of the Fairy-Type, in fact I despise it, so I wrote this to explain all of the conspiracies that I’ve made up about them.
They appeared out of nowhere in the Kalos Region. Many Pokémon changed to join them. They are a powerful force. They have weakened the Dragon-Type. The Fairy-Type might have been the worst thing to ever happen to Pokémon, but what if there was more to their story? What if there is a conspiracy stretching back to the very beginning of Pokémon?
Millions of people around the world know that Fairy-Type exists. What if there was more? Did Fairy-Type Pokémon help to shape our history? And if so, is it related to a greater conspiracy?
Who were they? Why did they come? What did they leave behind? Where did they go? Why have they returned?
The Fairy Conspiracy
June 11th, 2013; perhaps the darkest day in Pokémon history. The Fairy-Type was revealed. Not only was it announced as a new type, but that old Pokémon would also become this new type. Game Freak issued an official statement claiming that the Fairy-Type was meant to balance the overpowered Dragon-Type. It did its job too well.
The Fairy-Type might have effectively weakened the Dragon-Type, but an even worse monster was created that day.
But what if they weren’t actually created then? What if the evils of the Fairy-Type have existed since the time of the dinosaurs? Maybe even earlier?
During the same generation as the introduction of the Fairy-Type, one of the first dinosaur-themed Pokémon was also introduced, Tyrantrum. Tyrantrum is a Dragon-Type, and when you think about it, dinosaurs are giant, reptilian monsters, so in short, dragons. So what if millions of years ago, the world of Pokémon was ruled by Dragon-Types?
Mainstream scientists believe that the impact of a massive meteor caused the dinosaurs to go extinct. But if they really were Dragon-Types, the only thing that could have defeated them would have been an ice age, infighting, or fairies.
Clefairy is technically one of the first Fairy-Type Pokémon to be discovered. It is often inferred, and other times flat out stated, that Clefairy come from the moon. It is a confirmed fact that they, like many other Fairy-Type Pokémon, draw their power from the moon. In fact, their Pokédex description claims, “The moonlight that it stores in the wings on its back apparently gives it the ability to float in midair.”
What if the meteor that was believed to destroy the dinosaurs was actually carrying a colony of Fairy-Type Pokémon? These fairies would have arrived on a planet ruled by dragons. Being a natural enemy of dragons, the fairies would have set out to destroy them all. This could be the reason that the Dragon-Type is the rarest type of Pokémon in modern times.
After successfully exterminating the dinosaurs, the Fairy-Type went in to hiding. Many disappeared, not to be seen again for millions of years, others disguised themselves as Normal-Type Pokémon, such as Clefairy and Jigglypuff. Over the years though, despite their hiding, there were several pieces of evidence that proved the Fairy-Type existed.
September 15, 1998; notable Pokémon trainers Ash Ketchum, Misty, and Brock meet a group of Clefairy and a scientist who has been studying them named Professor Seymour. He tells the group that these Clefairy are, in fact, from outer space.
Almost a year later, on September 25, 1999, Ash and his friends meet yet another group of Clefairy, this time in Viridian City. These Clefairy have arrived on Planet Earth with the use of a UFO. This infers that reinforcements were being sent to the secret Fairy-Type army from the moon on a regular basis. These Clefairy however, had some problems with their ship, and crash landed. Studying this crash was a well-known Ufologist, Professor Oswald. The professor firmly believed that the Clefairy were in fact extra-terrestrials, and created a device to scan for them. For the sake of curiosity, Oswald scans a wild Jigglypuff, causing his scanner to go off. He then turns around towards Misty and scans her, once again, causing the scanner to go off. It is worth noting that Misty at the time was holding her Togepi, and that could have been what set off the scanner. It was decided that the scanner was broken, but it did say that Clefairy, Jigglypuff, and Togepi, all Normal-Types that would later become Fairy-Types, were aliens. Coincidence? I think not!
Ash and friends would later encounter the exact same group of Clefairy again, except this time with the addition of a Cleffa, inferring that they too are aliens.
January 30, 2010; It is many years later, but Ash, Brock, and their new companion, Dawn, have another encounter with a soon to be Fairy-Type. They meet a Togepi that seems to have two completely different personalities. Sometimes it is cute and sweet, others it is pure evil. This reflects the true nature of the Fairy-Type, they look cute, but in reality it’s all an act. This Togepi proceeds to hijack a rocket ship from a group of Team Rocket grunts. A reason is never stated, but for some reason, it wants to go into outer space. It is my belief that this Togepi wanted to return home. Once the rocket makes it off Earth, it is attacked by a Rayquaza, one of the most powerful Dragon-Type Pokémon, one that has been shown before to want to protect the Earth from alien invasions. This Rayquazza attacks the rocket ship, seemingly knowing that the worst enemy to dragon-kind is commanding it.
A little while later, September 4, 2010, Ash has yet another encounter with a fairy. His friend Dawn had recently acquired a Togekiss, and she wanted to have it train against Ash’s Gible. During the fight, Gible launched an unsuccessful Draco Meteor, which after missing Togekiss was sent flying at Dawn’s Piplup. Togekiss then moves in and deflects the attack. How could a Normal/Flying Pokémon like Togekiss deflect a Draco Meteor without taking any damage whatsoever? This isn’t a Normal-Type we’re dealing with here, but a magic and sparkles Fairy-Type. Acting on its instinct to do anything to fight against dragons, Togekiss forgot about its secret agenda of hiding, and showed its true colors.
Now, after possibly millions of years of waiting, the Fairy-Type has revealed itself. And it seems like it will stop at nothing less than the complete annihilation of the Dragon-Type.
August 8, 2014; a cover-up by Game Freak has just been leaked. A Dragon-Type has defected. Altaria, once thought to be a loyal Dragon-Type, has just been revealed to Mega Evolve into a Dragon/Fairy Type. It would appear that Altaria has been a double agent all along.
Just In: The famed International Police Officer Looker has just been discovered in Hoenn’s Battle Resort. Preliminary reports suggest that he has absolutely no memory of who he is or why he is there. The only hint of his history is a mysterious item, Audinite, the Mega Stone that causes the Normal-Type Audino to Mega Evolve into the Fairy-Type Mega Audino. It just so happens that Looker’s appearance in Hoenn coincides with the discovery of the Fairy-Type in the Hoenn Region, as well as the discovery of Mega Stones that turn non-Fairies into Fairies, such as the previously mentioned Audinite and Altarianite. It is conceivable that such Mega Stones are being created by the Fairies as a weapon to force others into their ranks. It also seems possible that the International Police became aware of this plot and sent their top agent to stop it, but the Fairies intercepted him, sinking his ship and taking his memory so that no one would know this secret. If this theory is true, then maybe Altaria isn’t a traitor after all, but a casualty of war.
You know about Fairy-Types, and you know about Ancient Aliens. What if they were one and the same…?
