The reason why the fairy type is tied to the Moon

I don't think the Moon Stone will be used for the Sylveon evo. In Pokémon XD Gale of Darkness, you can get items called the Sun Shard or the Moon Shard which allows your Eevee to evolve to Espeon and Umbreon respectively. I'm thinking these items are somewhat related to the Sun and Moon Stones...but that's just a theory. A Game... *bricked by MatPat* OW!! Okay, I won't steal your schtick!

Personally, I'm leaning towards Amie as the Sylveon evo method. It seems the most likely since I would not be surprised that they'd implement a new feature like that.

Definitely an interesting theory TC and I'd be surprised if Sylveon wasn't based on the jade rabbit.

How do you guys think Eevee evolves into Sylveon. Most likely Moon Stone.

If the Moon Stone was ever going to work on Eevee, it would've evolved Eevee into Umbreon.

Not to mention the official artwork that shows Sylveon attacking Hydreigon takes place in front of a full moon.

Moonblast launches the moon at the opponent, correct?
Sylveon confirmed to be Majora.

To be entirely fair, new evolutions aren't always tied to new mechanics, just as long as it's something that couldn't happen in previous games. A lot of Pokemon gain new evolutions by holding/using new items, even when item-based evolution had already been done. As long as it's not something that causes people to ask, "How come my Eevee didn't evolve into Sylveon when I tried to use a Moon Stone back in Red?"
