'...who is just finishing up translating is part of the game'
That one sentence kind of gives it away. I mean really? I don't think translation is anywhere near finished when, judging from trailers, not even the graphics are final. Maybe I'm missing something, but sounds fishy.
Newsflash, kid; just about everything ever ends up on 4chan at somepoint. Just because it's there before somewhere else does not make it any less legit. The rumour itself and any cited sources are what you should be looking into, not the location of the post.

It's probably fake, but I do hope the first part is true, I'd like a dragon Eevee >_>
An additional Eevee evolution would make sense, since Eeveelutions have come in pairs before.
Granted, that pattern could easily be broken.
The pairs have also had one Eeveelution SE against the other.
Umbreon(Dark) is SE against Espeon(Psychic)
Glaceon(Ice) is SE against Leafeon(Grass)
Sylveon(Fairy) would be SE against a dragon type, it would fit.
But as you said, the pattern could easily be broken.
That logic means that there's an equal chance for a Poison, Steel, Fighting or Dragon Eeveelution. (Poison+Steel beat Sylveon, Sylveon beats Fighting+Dragon)
Out of all of these, I'd want a Poison Eevee the most.
Fairy is SE against fighting too? Forgot that.
Those would also be just as likely I suppose, I was just saying a dragon type fits the pattern pretty well. I personally would love a dragon Eevee, but fighting, steel, or poison would be cool. I just want more Eevee, more Eevee is always good :D
