It should really be called metal type. Not everything's made of steel ya know and steel's not the only metal in existence. Seriously Gamefreak goofed it big time there.

Same issue I have with Grass type. Rather than Plant type.

Its not GameFreak's fault you take titles too seriously...

It's always been Metal in the TCG, and Darkness instead of Dark. (The TCG types don't correspond exactly - colorless spans normal, flying and poison types are represented by psychic). The attack names mainly reference metal as opposed to steel, then there's metal coat etc. yeh they goofed.

What is steel type called in Japan? Is it... still steel or is it actually referred to as Metal like in the TCG? :-D
