So are there still people who think Sylveon isn't a new type?

Anyway, these recent rumors are just that, and they haven't given any clear hints. Sylveon may be a new type (though I hope "fairy" isn't it), but we'll see when we see.

what hints and recent rumors?


Hints:
- All eeveelutions types are easily recognizable just by looking at them EXCEPT for Sylveon.
- This picture: http://i1.wp.com/pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/1366247787.jpg?resize=500%2C280 (all eeveelutions have a badge depicting their type. Does Sylveon's look like Normal or Flying?)
- The fact that Nintendo is so mysterious about it's type.

Rumors:
- The fairy type rumors.

I honestly don't get people who think it's not a new type.

If I'm wrong, and Sylveon is a new type, then fine, I'm wrong. No big deal.

If I'm right and there is no new type, then I suffer no disappointment because I didn't get my hopes up for something that was a slim chance anyways.

I'd argue it's smarter to assume there's not going to be a new type until stated otherwise.

Not a hint so much as a lack of one.

Actually, I can see reasons why people can use that to argue Flying or Bug (Normal I don't see.)

- The fact that Nintendo is so mysterious about it's type.


Careful! GameFreak didn't announce Reshiram and Zekrom's types early on, they were being all elusive on information on them, and everyone assumed Reshiram would be a Light-type because of it. Was he?

I'm undecided, lately I've been cations of all this.

On a somewhat unrelated note, I just realized that the "cute" or "pixie" legend of each gen (Mew, Celebii, Manaphy, Victini, maybe Shaymin) would likely get this type.

Normal? I hope not, but plausible.

Evolve through level-up? They never do that with cross-gen evolutions; other than Lickilicky and Mamoswine (which were probably just oversights), they always evolve through methods that were outright impossible in previous gens.


Level-up is one of the few known ways of evolution that Eevee has not done yet. I believe that Eevee will evolve through level-up eventually, that evolving into a normal type would fit evolution through level-up, and that Sylveon looks like a normal type to me.

Having Eevee evolve via level up would probably conflict too much Espeon and Umbreon.

Unless they made it so that he levels up while holding a specific item or something.

Not so much since both Espeon and Umbreon both evolve through friendship. They could still work it in there.

Unless they made it so that he levels up while holding a specific item or something.


Though this would be the best and simplest way to do it.

Have one form of evolution take priority (lets say, Espeon/Umbreon evolution takes prioity ) and have Eevee attempt that evolution first. Should the player cancel this evolution, Eevee will then attempt to evolve into the remaining evolution (in this case, Sylveon )
