Will Fairy become a type in the TCG?

Not that I care about the TCG, but what do you think they'll do with it?

Wouldn't surprise me. I actually saw a fan made Fairy energy card online today.

Most likely, considering that both Dark and Steel got TCG types.

Either it gets its own type or it gets grouped under one of the existing card types, so I think it will get its own type.

I am curious as to what might happen to types that don't have their own types already.

What happened for each type (except Fairy, of course):

Normal: referred to as Colorless, but it has its own type
Fire: has its own type
Water: has its own type
Grass: has its own type
Electric: referred to as Lightning, but it has its own type
Ice: grouped under Water
Fighting: has its own type
Poison: originally grouped under Grass, but was reclassified under Psychic in the Diamond & Pearl set
Ground: grouped under Fighting
Flying: grouped under Colorless
Psychic: has its own type
Bug: grouped under Grass
Rock: grouped under Fighting
Ghost: grouped under Psychic
Dragon: originally grouped under Colorless, but got its own type in the Black & White Dragons Exalted set
Dark: referred to as Darkness, but it has its own type
Steel: referred to as Metal, but it has its own type

In addition to that, Darkness and Metal originally only had special Energy cards for their types, which limited their effectiveness. They got basic Energy cards in the Diamond & Pearl set. As for Dragon, it doesn't have Energy cards. Instead, each Dragon-type card uses 2 of the other energy types, varying by species (except for Kingdra, which apparently only requires Water energy; also, there are currently no Dragon-type cards for Arceus, Reshiram, or Zekrom). Will things continue like this, or will Dragon-types get their own Energy card in the future?
