Because with Light, I could actually imagine it being something new, and having a sense of unique moves that wouldn't fit into other types.
Electric, Steel, Fire and even Grass already cover "Light". --- http://i.imgur.com/ZOdcN.png We Are XROS HEART!

Light Type: Harness the power of light and energy. They can have angel like Pokemon and mirror-like Pokemon.
^In defense of the pro-Fairy Type group you could slap Fairy Type on angelic Pokemon. Just look at Yugioh, majority of angel monsters are given the fairy type. Wouldn't be the first type to be a "blanket" typing given to pokemon who don't really fit under any other classification(ex. Garchomp & Haxorus being dragon types). --- Asketh Ky to Sol, "Heaven or Hell?" and Sol, being of Gear did say "Let's Rock." Roman Cancels 1:14

And "harnessing power of light and energy" is what Synthesis, SolarBeam, Mirror Shot, Flash Cannon and the like do.
Angel-like Pokemon already exist, and even then they're well hidden. It's just typical Western crap. --- http://i.imgur.com/ZOdcN.png We Are XROS HEART!
