Paldea’s Pokedex includes a variety of Fairy-type Pokemon, both new and returning ones.
Fairy-type moves are super effective against Fighting, Dark, and Dragon-type Pokemon. If you’ve just unlocked 6-star raids, it’s important to use super-effective moves to beat these raids.
For instance, the Charizard 7-star raid event that is running this weekend is going to Terastrallize into a Dragon-type. So, it’s ideal to come prepared with some of the best Fairy-type Pokemon.
In this guide, I will list the best Fairy-type Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet and explain what makes them so strong.
Gardevoir is a Psychic/Fairy-type Pokemon that is known for its high Special Attack and Special Defense stats.
With a Modest nature, the Synchronize ability, and Wise Glasses as a held item, its Moonblast/Psychic will certainly hurt enemy Pokemon a lot.
6. Scream Tail
Scream Tale is a Fairy/Psychic Paradox Pokemon introduced in generation 9.
It is a defensive Pokemon with high Special Defense, HP, and Speed. Its remaining stats are solid, which makes Scream Tale a great all-rounder.
With moves like Rest and Sing, it’s able to stay alive for longer, while also putting the enemy Pokemon to sleep and taking control of the fight.
5. Iron Valiant
Iron Valiant is a Fairy/Fighting-type Paradox Pokemon exclusive to Pokemon Violet.
Its very high Attack, Special Attack, and Speed make it a great dual attacker that can catch enemies off-guard.
While it seems to be getting slightly outperformed by its competitor Gallade, Iron Valiant’s Fairy-type makes it a solid contestant for this list.
Sylveon, the fan-favorite eeveelution, is one of the best Fairy-type Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet.
It features a high Special Attack stat, which combined with the Pixilate hidden ability allows Sylveon to take down enemies by using Normal-type moves such as Hyper Voice and Tera Blast.
Make sure to have a Modest nature and equip it with an Assault Vest or Leftovers as an item, and Sylveon will guide you to victory.
Tinkaton is a Fairy/Steel-type Pokemon introduced in Generation 9. Its type combination is amazing on its own since Tinkaton is only weak to Fire and Ground-type attacks.
With the right nature and moves, Tinkaton can take down almost any opponent and is rightfully considered one of the best new Pokemon introduced in Scarlet and Violet.
Azumarill is a Water/Fairy-type Pokemon and one of the best Pokemon to use for 6-star raids. Its ability Huge Power, combined with the Belly Drum move and its high base stats allow it to deal significant damage.
Make sure to have an Adamant nature, equip it with an Assault Vest as an item, and you’re ready to take down almost any Pokemon.
1. Flutter Mane
With phenomenally high Special Attack, Special Defense, and Speed, Flutter Mane can easily one-shot most opponents before they even move.
It is a Ghost/Fairy-type Pokemon exclusive to Pokemon Scarlet. With STAB on some of the strongest moves, it can seem unstoppable.
And if you’re not convinced, keep in mind that it has been banned from competitive play due to how overpowered its kit is.
To sum up, that’s everything you need to know regarding the best Fairy-type Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet.
With the introduction of Paradox Pokemon, the Fairy-type has received some amazing additions in Generation 9 that can shine in almost any PvE or PvP team.
