Fairy as a type seems to be a combination of the classic "faeies" and the more modern depiction of fairies.

Classically, Fairies are tricksters with magical powers. They were weak to steel and would sometimes aid heroes in their quests, with their magical assistance often being integral. In stories with dragons, Fairy magic was often useful because dragons are traditionally weak to magic.

pretty good summary. i wish the fairy types we got (new ones at least) had more of this concept in their design. While I do enjoy many of the fairy type designs, I wanted something more magical....instead we got alot of pink.

, dragons are weak to magic


K use a fire spell on a fire dragon or a water spell on a water dragon then.


That's a fire or water spell. Fairy is more like "element less" magic.

As for why it's super effective with dark is that Dark types revolve around dirty fighting and tricks, fairies are tricksters by nature so they 'outplay' Dark types.
