Rocks are heated by the sun too and you don't see them being weak to Fire or anything like that, like Steel is.

I just don't get Steel's weakness to it.

All in all, like I said, it's not's just not really necessary either.

You must be unfamiliar with welders

That said, I'm not interested in the logic behind putting a Light type in the game. I just wanted another type designed to break through Steel types.

Game design encompasses both, though. And battle balance is the lesser in terms of importance.

The game is filled with nonsensical type matchups though (Ghost resists Bug, Steel resists Psychic, Psychic beats Poison, arguably Fairy being immune to Dragon).

I'm just more concerned if my idea is more properly balanced.

I don't think it's redundant with the Fairy type though. Fairy's main theme is being cutesy and magical (Dazzling Gleam's Japanese name is Magical Shine). Light's main theme is the ray of light itself. The only Fairy being retyped is the Floette line and only because of Light of Ruin.
