GeekOut Top 10s

Can you feel it? We’re going to get catchy in this week’s article. There’s no doubt you’ll have heard a lot of the phrases spoken today, as we’re going to be looking at our Top 10 Catchphrases. Our caveats are simple:

Pokemon to start 2019? Don’t mind if we do!

The Fairy type is the latest type to be added to Pokemon, making it the eighteenth type to be added to the list.

From the classic Clefairy, through to the more recent Gen VII Pokemon, these little puffs are surely going to pack a punch. Join us as we check out our Top 10 Fairy Type Pokemon.
