Magic-Type Confirmed

#1Hero_Of_RhymePosted 2/14/2013 7:27:58 AM
After many minutes of research and investigation, I was able to deduce Sylveon's type without a shadow of a doubt:

First, we inspect Sylveon's appearance:

What strikes you first when you see Sylveon? It's bow-tie. What do magicians wear? bow-ties. Coincidence?

Next, we'll take a look at Sylveon's moves:

What kind of moves did it use? Well, it used some kind of fireball attack, a stat-boosting move, Swift and Trump Card. Wait...

->Trump Card
->Card
->Card tricks
->Magic
->Magic type confirmed

Finally, what about Sylveon's name?

->Sylveon
->Sylph

According to Wikipedia, sylphs are invisible spirits of the air. What do magicians do? They disappear.

Magic type confirmed.

I was thinking the same when Sylveon used attacks that involved cards and stars. So obviously 'magic'

...ok this does make sense. Just watched the trailer. It does scream like its going to be magical. I was against a new type, but this strongly indicates one.

Sylveon looks feminine (and its Japanese and English names are based off feminine spirits).
Many RPG games have females as magic users, and there is a whole genre of Anime called "Magical Girl" which is pretty much what it says.
Even TvTropes suggests that "The more delicate and graceful field of magic is usually forte of women."

And this quote too.

Therefore, I'm kinda convinced.

So does this mean Eevee haters still have 9 more types to go through? lol

I could see "magic", better than a light type.

I think Illusion type sounds better though, but that's just me :p
