New Type? about time, explains Sylveon's type secrecy for over two months.

All I'm saying is you shouldn't put too much faith in some "new type"... it's just asking for disappointment. I'm not saying it isn't possible, just that you should probably consider alternatives as well.

They did the same damn thing with Zekrom and Reshiram. I see no Light type for Resh


They were LEGENDARIES, their typings were even tied to team *plasma, give me another example.

Here's what I will say. They have made it's type extremely mysterious. No type is immediately clear from its design, like you said the type has been in mystery for a while, and the name doesn't blatantly refer to any existing type.

Sylveon is pretty clearly based on Sylph, which indicates flying type, but then where do Nymphs fit into that.

If this whole process had been applied to Umbreon back in gen 2, I bet the same thing would have happened. Umbreon's typing wouldn't be immediately clear from the old list of typings. It's name which is based on "Umbra" doesn't refer to any of the original 15 types either.

Most of the mystery surrounding Sylveon seems to suggest a new type.


Yup Yup.
now while I'm no so knowledgeable, let's check about the names again: (wikipedia)

- (Japan and French, Nymphia and Nymphali): From Nymph, nymphs are generally regarded as divine spirits who animate nature, and are usually depicted as beautiful.

-(English and Italian, Sylveon): From Sylphs, they are winged air elementals or fairies. They ride the wind, flying high with eagles, Sylphs are female and are almost transparent

From Sylvan, In mythology, the term also refers to deities or spirits of the woods

-(German, Feelinara) Fee means Fairy.

now, what's the common factor ? :p

So just making sure: The main reason everyone's excited over a "Fairy" type is that the guy who leaked Gen 5 stuff is talking about fairies, but also said Sylveon is a Flying type a while ago?

No, I always wanted it to be fairy since it's reveal, through time, some of you guys in GameFAQS are just downers and your brought my hype down, but This guy raised my hype again! and I'm more believing now.

btw, I'm prepared to be disappointed ;p I can control myself, (but we really need a new type)

That's what I was saying at first too, but apparently the Flying-type comment was just personal speculation, i.e. "Sylveon looks like a Flying-type," and people mistook it as inside info.

I looked at Pokejungle, and it said that Hiro said that the official reveal would be "later today".

Yesterday.

Soo... I don't know where the original "leak" came from, but either Pokejungle misreported or he was lying.

EDIT: Re-read it, and "they" is kinda vague... and Pokejungle could have updated throughout the day... maybe I just misunderstood. But I'll believe it when I see reason to believe it.

There will not be a new type. If there was, it would have been added in Gen 5. Why? Because X and Y started development after Game Freak finished Black and White, and there's no way the development team came up with the idea of adding a new type in that short gap. Think of how it would screw up things already, or what a waste of time it would be to make some Gen 5 Pokemon normal type (say, Audino) and then immediately make them "Fairy" type. This is just an example, as I can see some fairy-like attributes in Audino. Therefore Sylveon must be dragon type. It's the last remaining previously-special type Eevee needs to evolve into. Its name and design had to be something very unique while keeping that Eevee charm. It all makes sense.
