I've been saying Flying since the moment we first heard it's name.
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.
JOLTeon VAPOReon FLAREon
ESPeon UMBReon (see: Umbra = moon)
LEAFeon GLACeon (see: Glacier)
Umbra = shade, not moon.
One rare instance where knowing Latin has been somewhat relevant.
Fair enough, but it's semantics at best. XD We're still talking about something point at Dark type.
Still saying Flying by the way.
