Derp, typo in the topic title. The grammar nazi in me is pissed off at myself.
You look at the little white ovals in its eyes as pupils instead of light glaring off of them. Sure, white pupils on blue irises is kind of weird, but I thought I'd point it out. Sylveon having "glassy", insectoid eyes is one of the main reasons people are saying it's Bug type.
I was guessing Bug when Sylveon was still Ninfia. But the new name having nothing to do with Bug type and the fact that they're keeping it such a secret has me leaning towards it being a new type. If I had to guess, I'd say "Magic". --- http://i.imgur.com/tT1Al.png
I never thought its eyes looked bug-like at all. I thought it was kind of a stretch when people were using that as "evidence" it would be a Bug type.
I do agree that it seemed more likely when we just had the Japanese name, but it seems pretty unlikely at this point. The fact the type is a secret doesn't mean too much, though, I don't think. Maybe they just want to give us things to speculate about. --- STOP CALLING ME HOME ROWED http://i.imgur.com/oMfaqni.jpg http://i.imgur.com/Hmo0Oia.jpg
