Serebii just tweeted this however I didnt see it on his website. Sylvion huh? Wonder what type that could be

It's also left me stumped.

All the other names were very obvious. This one isn't - what's the 'Sylv' stand for?

'Flying' came into my head upon reading Serebii's tweet of it, though.

Maybe it is supposed to be like sylph, which fits into the whole fairy/nymph thing too...

Sylver
Silver

Could be a reference to Swords, Speed, or silver wing.

Or

Sylvan as Salesman said

In that case it's either steel or flying type.

Maybe. And numerous Fairy typed pkmn are also Normal typed [Clefairy etc.]...

Maybe it is simply a Normal evo then [hopefully with a Dragon and or Ghost type partner - alia Umbreon and Espeon, Glaceon and Leafeon].

Yes, it's something to do with trees. Probably bug type then.

I love this so much. I kept telling people that the Japanese name is meaningless because it could mean pretty much anything.

The bug people can go kill themselves now.
