Well it can't exactly be nature. Water is nature. Plants works I suppose.
I wish Fairy was Fay, so it could also have elves and stuff.

What about Ghost, Dragon, and Bug?


They all work fine because Ghost, Dragon, and Bug are broad terms.

They're a variety of different ghosts. If someone where to see a spooky apparition I guarantee many would identify it as a ghost before anything else. No one is going to mistakenly identify a palm tree as grass.

Dragon is also a broad term and there are so many different types of dragons that the type name works fine.

While the actually definition for a bug is far narrower than what most people assume it's become so common place to refer to any creepy crawly arthropod as a bug that it works fine. Besides, something like Insect type in that case would still incorrectly label Ariados and Galvantula and Arthropod type is too bulky to work properly.

There is no reason that fairy can't include stuff like elves.

It can't be Plant-type because it also covers mushrooms.

We don't have any actual Grass Pokemon, so I'm not sure why a name that would fit more than zero and exclude a few technically is worse than a name that fits nothing.

Lesser of two evils. People have mistakenly called mushrooms plants. No one has misidentified a banana tree as grass.
