Now going to the rumor and unknown side of things, the recent Pokemon Smash episode in Japan had the actors trying to figure out what type Sylveon is (it's a crazy show, but has actual information, so bear with). The results implied that:

-Sylveon is weak against Fighting type
-Sylveon is strong against Ice type
-Sylveon is weak against/affected by Poison type

From these results, it was strongly suggested that Sylveon is indeed a new type. Light and Fairy continue to be the main speculated types, with Magic type still somewhat speculated as well.

Also, completely rumor, but read it if you want some more interesting possibly untrue information:

http://pokejungle.net/2013/05/11/more-fairy-type-rumours/

The source is known for good leaks and they've put their reputation on the line for this one, which is why I included it. For those who would like the summary version of the rumor site info

REMEMBER, THESE ARE RUMORS

-Fairy will be a new type. It is weak to Poison and Steel, immune to Dragon, super effective against Dragon, Dark, and Fighting, and Fire and Psychic-type Pokemon take half damage from it.

-Sylveon is Fairy-type. Some older Pokemon will be reclassified to Fairy, such as Mawile (Steel/Fairy).

-Mewtwo has two new formes, not just one. Both are activated via items.

-The professor’s English name is Patrice. (Note: Although it’s not the name of a tree, it is a masculine French name and sounds kind of like PA-TREE-SS)

-The Starter final evolutions are Fire/Psychic, Grass/Fighting, and Water/Dark.

-The first Gym is Bug, the second is Fairy, and the fourth is Fighting.

-A few attacks will be dual-typed.

-There will be a new type of battling style, “Sky Battles”, that Flying-type Pokemon and
Pokemon with Levitate can participate in.

-You will be able to see a Pokemon’s EVs at a certain in-game facility. You will be able
to boost the EVs through mini-games. It will take about two hours to get one stat to max
EVs.

-New move: Belch a Poison-type attack with a base power of 120 but can only be
performed if the user is holding a berry and the attack consumes said berry

-New move: Draining Kiss a Fairy-type attack which has a base power of 60 and heals
user for the same amount that it damages the enemy for

The source of the rumors appears to be someone attending DigiPen, a college focused on game design in Washington state near Nintendo’s Headquarters. They claim to have played a beta version of the game.

Well, there are routes 1 and 2, so that's pretty much confirmation in and of itself

He's assuming that because of the sign shown in the trailer.

Yes, there are definitely pictures of signs with route numbers on them. There is one picture with a sign that says "3" on it, and that is outside of a town. To disprove coincidence, there is another picture with a sign that says "2" on it.

Check the screenshot page if you need visual proof.

It was in the original trailer as well as pictures.

You forgot to include rumors surrounding Norse Mythology.
I think they have some credibility.
Article: http://www.zeldainformer.com/news/pokemon-x-and-y-based-on-norse-mythology-third-legendary-will-be-a-serpent
Also, the map of the Kalos region is http://www.serebii.net/karos.jpg
There isn't a very big tree that screams YGGDRASIL, except for the trees on the top and southeast corner.
But in this photo... http://s532.photobucket.com/user/Wulava/media/PokemonBW/KarosHide_zps43a923cc.png.html (picture is low quality)
The area surrounded by clouds in the top right corner appears to be Yggdrasil.
What surprises me is how Game Freak tried to cover the area specifically with clouds, so that the secret wouldn't be released too early for confirmation.

And there you have it.
