Many people consider them overpowered. It also makes no sense why they resist Bug, who are crapped on enough, or why these nature spirits would harm plants. Also given their connection to nature, life doesn’t really thrive in cold.

It definitely needs the immunity, because nothing being immune to Dragon was the big problem with it in Gens 4 and 5

That's why they introduced Fairy in the first place, to get rid of the dominance Dragons held over the meta

No the Dragon moves themselves were not the reason Dragons were dominate, They were strong, but a outrage into a steel type would help the steel type in the match since it took little damage.

The reason they were dominated was because of higher stats and moves to deal with other Pokémon.

Take Garchomp, he may run outrage or Dragon Claw, but his bread and butter was really Earthquake since that's what he be using most times on a non flying type. Or Dragonite and his flying moves since he gets stab. I think Dragon moves were fine as is, I mean Garchomp is still a big threat even with fairies and ice types running around since his move set has counters for both.

The big thing about Fairy is that is usually forces many Pokemon weak to Fairy to run Poison or Steel moves as coverage, something they would otherwise never do. So Dragons(and Dark/Fighting Types) have to use up one their four moveslots on types no-one would ever think of running without STAB in Gen V and earlier.

While making Ice SE against Fairy might seem like a way to make the type better on paper, it will only increase the use of Ice coverage, since at least Poison and Steel have resistances to Fairy, so the Pokemon with the typings themselves can benefit.

The biggest problem with Ice types is not having troubles hitting things super-effectively(its pretty much the best aspect of the type), its a combination of the type being extremely terrible defensively(being weak to 3 really common coverage types and 1 other type that saw a boost in usage due to Fairies while only resisting itself) and the Ice type Pokemon consisting mostly of slow and/or tanky stat spreads instead of fast and frail sweepers that can actually take advantage of their own typing well.

Fairies are not overpowered at all.
