So, they needed a new type to be super effective against dragons...

Ever see Cinderella? The climax involved a magic sword enchanted by fairies and a dragon slain by said sword.

because magic beats dragons. Besides its less about being super effective against dragons and more about resisting them (or as rumored being immune to them).

What? They should really not let Disney get a hold of these stories if they're gonna cut out crap like that.

Neither fairys or dragons actually exist, so it's not like there are rules to either. Why can't it be super effective against it?

Yes, my name is supposed to be "SoleEater" and not "Soul Eater".

It didn't matter what the type was called, it was going to be super effective against the Dragon type (and immune to it, it seems). The fact that the Fairy type could be easily applied to previous-gen Pokemon to quickly let it play catch-up to the rest of the types would have been a plus for GameFreak.

To be fair, the dragon was also a fairy. And it was sleeping beauty.

Of course, in Dungeons and Dragons (and The Fairly Oddparents, as a D&D shout-out), dragons are actually resistant to magic.

But ultimately it comes down to the fact that dragons and fairies are both mythical, magical creatures. There had to be some relationship between them, and since Dragon-type has become overpowered lately, that relationship should give Fairy the advantage.
