It's Normal. Seriously, is it that hard to comprehend?


Yes.

The wing shape at the bottom of Sylveon's portrait kinda looks like its ear.

This is getting ****ing annoying.

GameFreak, will you just hurry up and tell us what the hell it is?

... And all this time I've been arguing for Bug, I'd failed to notice that Sylveon's ear resembled the Insect Badge in shape.

Oh, it's not a strong argument on its own, but it's something I'd overlooked.

I believe it will be bug type.

Sylveon is derived of course from sylvan, which is a word often used in fantasy genres meaning 'relating to woods', often used to describe elves, fairies, dryads. The Japanese name Nymphia further associates it with fairies.

Sylveon itself has several characteristics similar to a butterfly. It has large, single colour eyes, bright colours, large wing like ears, and a butterfly shaped ribbon.

So, my money is on a butterfly-like bugtype. That said, I would not be surprised if it were a flying, a normal, or even another weird as hell dragon type.

If Sylveon is a flying type, and GF still has the 2nd eevelution, its type will either be Rock, Bug or Fighting type

BUT, if Sylveon is a bug type(now that I look at it, it's icon does look like a cacoon, and the wing below it looks like an insect wing) then that 2nd eevelution will e the flying type. Is poison still SE against bug?


It is not.

Don't forget that it can control the backs of the ribbon on its head. When it holds them out in front of itself (it does that in one of the promos for the Eevee short), they look like antennae.

Also, in addition to the mythological nymphs, a nymph is also an immature insect.

Note that Umbreon's icon doesn't exactly scream "Dark Type".

Oh, and Eevee's icon has a heart in it. Heart type confirmed.


Yeah, that's what I was gonna say. Espeon's icon doesn't really look "Psychic" to me, either.

I don't think that the color or design of Sylveon's icon really have much of anything to do with its type. Normal still seems most likely to me.
