I was thinking, why would they hide a type, especially because typing is Eevee's thing.
That's when I got to thinking. Lot's of people have asked for a light type, for better or worse (mostly worse.) Look at Y Deer in the trailer. It's covered in light when it appears. Could it be light type?
Even if light type doesn't appear (which I hope it doesn't.) there's still a fairly decent chance that it's a new type.

Despite tons of people already bringing this up, I agree with you on this point. Bug just doesn't make since imo, it wouldn't make since to evolve eevee into a normal when it is a normal type, and the only remaining type would be flying. Which is honestly what I think it is, but bring up a fair point about the type not being listed.
Make Reshiram Light-type. Maybe more light-type for Audino, Musharna, Lilligant, Sigilyph, Alomomola, Eelektross, and Cryogonal. But they didn't. Waste opportunity and it may be too late to make new types because new type is too thin spread when you compare 649 pokemon to new 100 pokemon.
However, there may be still hope for retcon with older pokemon. GameFreak didn't have problem with the whole retcon business. They retcon type twice : Magnemite and Rotom's forms. And they also retcon evolution method. One for Milotic. Two for Mamoswine and Lickilicky since they could learn Ancientpower and Rollout via move tutor respectively before Gen 4.
But still, I would love see new type, especially light-type.
No, there will not be a new type. There is no need for one other than fan begging. This would mean they'd have to restructure all 650+ to work with this new type, change some pokemon to light type, etc. Its a lot of work that I don't see them doing just because a minority of fans want it.
