It's worth noting that bugs do not have paws


Nor do they have noses (Butterfree), nor lances on their arms (Beedrill), nor armor (Shelmet and Escavalier), nor hands with thumbs (Ledian), nor lasers (Genesect), nor...

Shall I continue?


To be fair Genesect was modified...


To be fair, Sylveon evolves from Eevee.

Pokemon don't actually have to be a carbon copy of the actual animal. It's perfectly acceptable to see a Bug Pokemon with paws or a Flying Pokemon without wings.

Right now, I'm saying Flying.

I'd like to point out that not a single bug type (other than Arceus, which obviously doesn't count) looks even remotely mammalian, while Sylveon is still very mammalian. If it was bug, why wouldn't they add an exoskeleton, or wings, or actual antennae instead of ribbons, or anything else that would make it suggestive of a bug?

Nor are they mammals. I'm sorry, but this outweighs all that quite handily in my opinion.

Also, those Pokémon you mentioned are obviously based on bugs. It's harder to tell with Shelmet and Escavalier, but their evolutionary relatives look enough like bugs. Sylveon's pre-evolution is not bug-like in the slightest.

I'd say its a New type (Light type preferably)...

There is nothing anywhere that would even suggest a light type.

Bugs aren't cute, and don't wear ribbons.


- Shuckle
- Karrablast
- Weedle
- Spinarak
- Surskit
- Masquerain
- Dwebble
- Sewaddle
- Joltik
- (And more...)

Would like to have a word with you on that one.


Exactly 0 of those you mentioned are cute.

"I could care less" means you care right now.
The proper phrase is "I couldn't care less."

Not the pale skin or shiny body or magical glowy abilities it has in the trailer?

Okay, assume that does have something to do with it. Explain what a pink egg shaped thing with a wing has to do with Light?
