Sylveon is Bug-type

#41CrystalKing5426Posted 4/8/2013 5:48:32 PM
(Don't know if this has been mentioned yet) Given that all previous eeveelutions were blatantly color coded in accordance to their typing, the lack of olive green coloring is against Sylveon being Bug type.

Espeon is pale purple. Psychic type panel is bright pink. So... no.

Besides, unless you're saying Sylveon is a new type, there's really no color that it fits now. Its body is a cream color, which no type panel has. Its highlights are pink, but pink's Psychic, which is taken, and the English website pretty strongly indicates that Sylveon won't be a repeated Eeveelution type.

Yeah, I'm still going with either Bug or Normal.

Any shade of purple/pink is still associated with Psychic.

Not only that, I count seven officially purple Psychic-types, three of which are the more-prominently-black Gothita line (official color listings are odd sometimes). So that leaves four if you don't count Gothita.

Purple being associated with Psychic is something of a reach.

I'm in the camp of it being a new type, seeing as how it doesn't look like any other type.

Let me ask you all this: If Espeon was first revealed to you, would there be any doubt that it was anything other than Psychic? In addition to the color (Psychic is typically Pink or light Purple) the name (ESPeon) and glowing eyes are kind of dead giveaways.

Psychic is yellow more often than it's purple, and that is counting the fact that the Abra family is officially brown.

I'll laugh if Sylveon is another Psychic type eevee.
