Anyone notice that the symbol there looks a heck of a lot like the insect badge? http://tinyurl.com/cwmjhva
I think it is a forest fairy still. Bug/Psychic definitely bug or grass in there.
While it could be deliberately misleading, the English page refers to Sylveon having "a different type" from the other Eeveelutions, so I think we can probably safely rule out dualtypes and very safely rule out Psychic and Grass.
I mean, I know I said not to rule out types, but here I feel it's justified.

Sylveon. v Sylv v Sylph
What is Sylph? From Wikipedia: Sylph (also called sylphid) is a mythological creature in the Western tradition. The term originates in Paracelsus, who describes sylphs as invisible beings of the air, his elementals of air.
Also: Sylph is often a WIND element summon in RPGs, such as Tales of ___ and Final Fantasy.
This would follow in the tradition of Eeveelutions having their name point to thier type pretty directly.

Umbra = shade, not moon.
