I've heard some suggestion that it could be weak to steel types. And for some reason I could also see it strong to ghost and dark types.

Super-effective against:

Dragon
Ghost or Dark (just to give the middle finger to Sableye and Spiritomb)

Weak against:

Poison (just to give Poison something else to be SE against)
Steel

I always thought it would be strong against Ghost 4x, Dark 4x, and Dragon, and weak against Fire, Fighting, Poison, Steel, Dragon, Psychic, Ice, Electric, and Rock.

Fairies aren't exactly tough, if anything they're only useful against underworldish creatures and things.

Why would you make it weak against Steel that already resists more than half the types? Unless it'd be as illogical to not make it weak to Steel as Fire to Water there's no need to make it more powerful.

One of the most surefire ways to kill a fairy is with cold iron. As Steel seems to represent all metals, it works as a stand in.

Would you rather have a light type?

Ok. I'm not really hoping that a new type Fairy is true then.
