Fire/Fairy fits kitsune much more than Fire/Psychic, and there's hardly any reason to believe it'll be anything other than a kitsune-based creature. Kitsune have magical powers from fairy tales -- not mind powers. No reason for it to be psychic at all. If they associated it with psychic, Ninetales would've been Fire/Psychic.
Of course Fire/Fairy is better, Fire/Fairy is absolutely perfect for it. People want it to be Fire/Psychic but they don't realize that all the Psychic elements they want it to have are actually presented much better by the Fairy type. It's a magical fox, that's the whole point!
And it's still not guaranteed, that part of the leak is certainly not enough to make me back off.
Not guaranteed, but I'm hoping either that (which will probably make it as cute as a button or mystical looking) or Fire plain. Most from what I read wanted Fire/Psychic which is odd but it might make sense.

Well, if we are to believe the rumors that Chespin becomes a knight-like Pokemon, and Fennekin a mage, then the typing Grass/Steel, Fire/Fairy, and Water/Fighting could work assuming Steel is super-effective against Fairy and Fairy is super-effective against Fighting.
