Sylveon's type?

I'm just going to take a wild and stupid guess and say it's a new type, Pure Type.

Sylv means "forest', and Leafeon already exists, so I'm gonna say Bug.

If it's the pink one in the picture, that's absolutely normal.


Where the hell are you guys getting the definitions for this word? >_>

Also, I wish they'd just tell us so this mindless speculation can stop.


It would take no time for you to look at words with the prefix Sylv. Root words/prefixes from other languages will give you better results than posting rude presumptuous comments.

Sylviculture- forestry/the cultivation of forests.

I say flying. The symol under Sylveon's frame in the picture seems like a tiny wing.

Technically isn't that wing the same shape as the badge received from Burgh?

IMO, the egg and pink are irrelevant. The oval shape is no more significant than the diamonds or circles the other ones have.

The pink is there to match Sylveon regardless of its type.

And it actually looks ever so slightly like the insect badge... http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/File:Insect_Badge.png

To me, Sylveon is the only Pokemon where Attract actually succeeds when used on/from the same gender.

I can't stand how many people keep saying "fairy type"... when there's nothing pointing to it or a new type in general. Not saying I'm completely against the idea... I just hope that if it is real, it's based more on the classical "fairy" than the modern one... that way we can get some Unseelie Pokemon.

I think your wasting your time sticking to something that has no evidence for it's existence.

Let's just pretend this says something witty.

I'm saying new type or flying just because there appears to be a wing shape.

Oh lordy.

Normal type.

Colors and style are reminiscent or chansey and audino: white, pink, fluffy, cute. Creating a new type would throw off mechanics of the game considering how many pokemon they have already, and the small number they plan to bring in.

Any other type would be more obvious, bug would have antennae or other insect features, flying would have bigger wings, fighting would be more muscular, dragon would... Have scales or something.

Sylveon is normal typed.
