I just realized something about the eeveelutions

#1NinjaKitsunePosted 3/4/2013 1:10:09 AM
Excepting the first three, both pairs have, in addition to the previously mentioned pattern of having one's type being the other's weakness, have shared a weakness with a third type (Gen 2: bug, Gen 4: fire).

Now, this is all just speculation, of course, but if we assume a pattern of 2 eevees, one being weak to the other, and both being weak to a third type, sylveon can't be normal. Flying works with the other being bug (third weakness is rock). So that suggests at least a possibility that if a second eeveelution is introduced it'll be bug type.

Of course, the same argument could be used to support sylveon being a bug type with another flying type eeveelution being introduced, but Sylveon doesn't look very bug-like to me.

Anyways, found this interesting.

Eh, trivial at best. With two pairs of Eeveelutions, it's tricky to extrapolate anything.

I see with the titles X and Y it might have to do with chromosomes. Sylveon not exactly being the pinnacle of masculinity I see being a female evolution with a Flying type perhaps? And maybe there is another eeveelution that will be male and fighting?

There's no pattern, people are just looking way too much into it. Before Sylveon was revealed most of you were saying the Eeveelution would be Dragon because the rest of the Eeveelutions had types based of the original Special types. It's just a coincidence even if Sylveon turns out Flying.

Well if it has come up before it must have been buried under all the other sylveon speculation.

And yeah, I realize it's not exactly solid ground, but the fact that two separate typing patterns were kept between gen 2 and gen 4 does make it seem like less of a coincidence.

Clearly, you know nothing of Sylveon:

Also, +1 to all of this. You're looking for patterns where there are none.

You can't make a pattern out of something that happened twice. Let's say the lottery was won by 2 dudes. That doesn't mean only men can win.

By your logic, Sylveon could still be a Normal type if new types are introduced.
