This poll is now closed.
Remember: opinions =/= facts, people.
There's no right or wrong here, considering the current lack of information on Sylveon. Therefore, I ask that you keep your rage in check if you don't like someone else's opinion.

I wanted two more options for dual-types and possible new types, but unfortunately, I can only have 10 options in a poll - the exact number of types remaining for Eeveelutions.

Anyway, my money is on Normal.
Reasons: it's pink (17 out of the 37 pink Pokémon are Normal-type), its name is fairy-like (a lot of fairy Pokémon are Normal-type as well) and the ribbons make me think it's linked to Normal for some reason (probably because of Silk Scarf, as well as Pink Bow and Polkadot Bow back in G/S/C; all these items boost the damage of Normal-type moves).

So, share your opinions here... peacefully, if possible.



Curious fact: if Sylveon is any type other than Dragon, and assuming there are no new types, dual types or type repetitions, that will make it the first Eeveelution whose type wasn't originally special-based before the physical/special split in Gen IV.

Also, I wonder if GF will give Sylveon the usual 130/110/95/65/65/60 base stat distribution...?

It's a Fire type if I've ever seen one.

Fighting type. It has to be. the only two possible types are flying and fighting, assuming they wont repeat normal, and the only stats i could imagine are these

60/130/65/110/65/95

it cant be a slow pokemon. It's only 51.8lbs. but speed cant be the focused stat so 95 there
I cant see it flying so it has to be fighting.
High attack 130, high special attack for special based attacks, which have been quite a focus for the last gen, so 110 special attack.
that leaves hp def, and spdef...
I could see 65 hp, 65def and 60spdef, but im thinking that spdef and def are going to be the same so 60 hp and 65 for the defenses.
