Some of the Nintendo Direct news you may have been expecting, but it's doubtful you expected this: Pokemon X and Y will be adding am eighteenth Pokemon type to the roster: The Fairy type.
The new Eevee evolution, Sylveon, is this new type, and it also looks as though some old Pokemon will be reclassed into this new type as well. Seeing as there haven't been any new class additions since Pokemon Gold and Silver, this is pretty big news that could affect the balance of the game in a big way.
What do you think of this new type addition? Does it convince you to pick up X/Y come October 12th?
