New Type/Sylveon Type 'Confirmed'

Thoughts?


If it helps your cause, its French name is 'Nymphali' which comes from the base word 'Nymph.'

Personally? I think it looks more like a Skitty than anything else. Adding a 'light' type seems like it would make more sense than a fairy type, too.

There is nothing 'fly' about it. Nothing.

Now that I see the actual picture, I am wholly confident that this is a new type.

Of course they used a new colour to put over the ???, if they had used a current type's colour (say Normal) everyone would be saying "OMGEHH NORMAL TIEP CUNFIRMD!!1"

A "Spirit" type? Huh, never considered that.

Of course, they are pulling A LOT of surprises this gen. A new type is perfectly conceivable.


Agreed, I think it may be a new type.

In the English version, at least, all the type plates are the same color as the plates in the game, but in the Japanese version, all the type plates are the same color as the Pokemon. (Espeon has a purple plate in Japanese and a pink one in English; Flareon has a red-orange plate in Japanese but a regular orange one in English)...

So no new types necessarily confirmed.

It's either a new type (which I doubt but possible still) or Normal. Looking at the other Eeveelutions, they are all obvious what type they are. Seeing how Sylveon doesn't show any apparent aspects but has similar color and cutesy appearance like a fair number of other Pokemon like Clefable, I could only imagine it being Normal.

Speaking of Clefable, now imagine if the Clefairy line was new in this generation. There would be so many people saying it's flying type because of those little wings on it's back but look at Sylveon, can you even call those wings?
