Sylveon is definitely Dragon

#1dswizardPosted 5/7/2013 11:37:25 AM
So I've been convinced for a while that Sylveon was flying, but changed my mind given the following evidence:

Of all the originally special types: grass, fire, water, electric, psychic, ice, dragon and dark - only dragon has not been represented with an eeveelution. Similarly, no eeveelutions have received a traditionally physical type!

Sylveon's colouring is red and blue - the traditional dragon colours in the ruby/sapphire and related type sprites.

"soft" dragons such as dragonair and altaria have been released - it's perfectly possible for a pokemon to be dragon without being vicious. Similarly, let's use the reverse argument: all eeveelutions are cute, so if they *were* to make a dragon type eeveelution, what would it look like? Answer: Sylveon.

Dragons are mythical, sylph is related to that. OK that's more of a stretch than the other arguments but again it's as close as a dragon eeveelution could be. What else are they supposed to call it?

Honestly I'd be very surprised if Sylveon turns out to be a type other than dragon, it makes too much sense for it to be dragon!

If Altaria's a dragon, then hell i guess you're right

I'm not a Charizard fanboy, but I think this tired old argument is going to make me cry...

I think he's serious.
Actually, I somewhat agree with that.
Fairy is a stupid idea. Dragon is feasible with Sylveon. Far more than a new type could ever be.

Nah charizard's fire/flying because it has wings. Wings = flying. Sylveon doesn't. Charizard's less dragony than it is firey and wingy.

While I admit that a small part of me does think Sylveon could be Dragon (it honestly is in my top 3 guesses right now) I don't necessarily think so because of the reasons that you posted.

Also Flying = Wings makes no sense.

There are a lot of Flying types that don't have wings, and there are several winged Pokemon that aren't Flying.
