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 --- Everyday the sun comes up around her, she can make the birds, sing harmony! http://i.imgur.com/VBsWOu2.png <3 Ain't no woman like the one i got..

If Altaria's a dragon, then hell i guess you're right
Serious or sarcasm? I'm serious!
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. --- I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me. Pokemon White 2 FC: 4342-3001-3593.
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. --- Don't forget to check out my MegaTen themed webcomics at http://www.drunkduck.com/user/Strain42/ (Currently Updating: Persona 4TW Add-On M-F)
