Keep it as Fairy. Or maybe Faerie.

Some people don't like the idea of "fairy type" because of the name. What would you like best?

What, do you guys want to change the Dragon type into the Wyvern type, or the Draco type?

Fact: Things are so much better when taken at face value.

I'd actually like "Wyvern" better, but I'm not going to push to change it because it's established.

But Fairy, it isn't established yet. NOA can do whatever they want with it.

Mystic sounds a lot cooler but I wouldn't mind if it stays fairy.

Magic, or as someone else suggested, Mystic, sound much better imo.

There's no sense crying over every mistake, you just keep on trying till you run out of cake.

I think this would the best.

I don't understand why so many people would like "Magic" better, all of Pokemon is sort of magic. And if not that, Psychic fills in the "Magic" role well enough.

Was going to say either pixie or sprite, but the X mascot doesn't seem to fit those very well.

Just Fairy. It's already terminology in the game via egg groups.
