Comfey is just a light green Pokemon with flowers surrounding it. It has vine. Comfey can release scent. It can learn 9 Grass and 5 Fairy moves in its learnset, so why is it a Fairy type?

This question sort of relates to the Florges line.
Because it's cute and flowery ok?
Instructions unclear. Accidentally summoned a demon.

It's probably fairy type and not grass type because it isn't really made of flowers, rather it picks flowers and carries them around. The Pokemon itself is a fairy. We'll probably never know the exact reason- this this just a theory.

Similarly to how Flabebe is classified as.
Comfey picks flowers and always carries them around. It makes a ring of blossoms and spreads oil from its body on it, which changes the flowers so they emit a soothing fragrance. It has a habit of giving these flower rings to those it’s fond of. The aroma can soothe both itself and its allies. Comfey also helps with the treatment of people and Pokémon at Pokémon Centers and hospitals, thanks to its aroma.

When attacked by other Pokémon, it throws its flowers at them to create an opening, and then it either flees or strikes back.

X-scizor is right.
Comfey is a fairy; it just carries flowers around.
Also, being related to flowers without being made of flowers is a very Fairy-type thing. Fairies like flowers. Think Florges.
Plus, it looks sorta like a sprite, it emits a sweet smell (like Aromatisse and Alcremie), and it’s a healer. All Fairy things.
