Would there be less drama if the Fairy type was called Elf type instead?

Though I prefer Elves to Faeries in terms of pokemon I would view that as retarded..

Instead of insecure homophobes whining, another group of minority will whine instead.


I like how everyone assumes that despite no one EVER acting as such. -_-


I've seen lots of people whine about the fairy type.

Or Magic!? *trollface*

To be honest - it's okay like that. There aren't really any Mon of the Type you would really use except Sylveon and Gardevoir to begin with.

Or Mystic even.


This actually isn't that bad, but I think Fairy suits the countertype with Dragon better. I have no problem with the name other than the fact that it makes me think they should all have wings, because I've yet to see a Fairy without wings.

Yeah, but they don't involve anything homophobic. It's stupid if anyone assumes that.

Elf is too restrictive.

The only alternative I can really think of that could hit close to the same general point might be Mystic or Magic or something.


Which already exists as Esper (Psychic) in Japan.

Probably less drama, but more outright complaining because that's honestly a worse name than Fairy, and I'm TheFairyTrainer, that's gotta count for something

How is it more restrictive than Fairy?


It's not, I think Fairy is too restrictive too. Elf is worse though because it just doesn't accurately describe any Pokemon really. I can't think of any actual elf Pokemon. I don't like the name Fairy but at least there are definitively fairy Pokemon.

Magic/Mystic would be better. As it is, people are ridiculously loosely defining the word fairy, calling any sort of mythological creature fairies. With Magic/Mystic, doing that would at least make sense, although people would still suggest too many Pokemon for it.
