Almost all Pokemon that can perform special attacks can perform "magic" to an extent. I don't really see how the Magic-type can be justified when Water-types can use Ice-type attacks, and things like Latias and Darkrai have attacks that can't be conjured physically or logically (Dragon Pulse, Dark Pulse, Shadow Ball, etc).
Maybe they would rename "fairy type" into "magic type" or "magical type" when it gets translated in English, the same way how "evil type" became "dark type" in the English version.
That's what I was trying to say by making this topic. If they are going to make a fairy type, at least turn it into magic so it fits in better. Because if you try to picture a fairy type attack, what comes to mind? Magic.

Fairy fits better as a Pokemon's physical attribute. Making it Magic type instead is like opting to change Water type to "Wet type" because water Pokemon can make stuff wet just like fairies can perform magic. Not to mention "magic" sounds broad as **** and fairy is a mythical type so it fits in just fine along with Dragon. I don't get why so many people are keen on renaming it.
