What would you like Fairy type to be called in English?

Fairy. Or at least Faerie or Fae. I don't see why they should change it to anything else.

That doesn't answer my question. There are already cutesy Pokemon and cutesy attacks that didn't get redesigned or renamed. I don't see why they should with a new type. Fairy isn't limited to cutesy or girly associations anyway.

It should be called Ghetto, because it will never go anywhere, just like fairy.

There's a difference between some Pokemon and AN ENTIRE TYPE.

To think that NA will let an entire class of Pokemon slide by with a name like that is ridiculous.

Also, just because it isn't limited to cutesy things doesn't stop the average person from looking at Fairy Type and thinking this:

Not really. There are tons of girly cutesy Pokemon and Pokemon classified as fairies. All it is is putting them into a category. If kids don't like fairy type then they simply won't use them. Renaming it into something it's not just because "kids might not like it and they might be ignorant to what fairies actually are" is pretty stupid.

Did Yu-Gi-Oh bomb because of Fairy type too? YGO is aimed at boys as well.

Fairy type sounds fine and it fits. Complaining that it isn't manly enough is stupid. If you think you're too manly for the fairy type, don't use them. :I Don't ask people to change the name for you.

Fay is phonetically and meaningfully identical to Fae. Does the spelling matter?
