Ninfia is a new type. Prove me wrong.

The bond system talked about was labeled as being some sort of new battle mechanic. It said it would make your pokemon stronger. Thats painting with pretty broad strokes to just say it will make all your pokemon stronger. Its not very limiting in its design. When it comes to evolution we have always had a bond mechanic, and it was Happiness. Which we have already seen come into play before. Unless they rework the mechanics for how Espeon and Umbreon evolve I cant see bonds being a form to spark evolution or how it would be any different. For now Im interpreting it as only a battle mechanic, not an environmental one.

Did it occur to you guys that all the frilly stuff and the fact that Eevee's gender ratio is 7:1 that Ninfia may just be a Female only form? After all that would explain the "secret" to evolving it.

Nobody can prove you wrong.

But nobody can prove you're right either.

It's like religion.

I can't, but we can't prove any guess on the type wrong at all since there's no confirmation.

I'm betting on Flying type. Ninfia is a kite.

It never got confirmed that there will be a new gameplay mechanic of bonds in the game. The voice-over in the trailer emphasized bonds and in the press release it was confirmed that there would be new gameplay mechanics, but bonds being the new mechanic is pure speculation.

To fix the evolution problem...
Either trades, or: Espeon: Level up with max happiness in the morning. Ninfia: Level up with max happiness in the day. Umbreon: Level up with max happiness at night.

Masuda's own blog on Game Freak's homepage confirmed it, as did an official press release by The Pokemon Company.

.3 repeating = 1/3

1/3 * 3 = 3/3 = 1
