haha I voted that Sylveon was going to be Normal type haha Although deep inside I knew it was going to be a new type! haha Sylveon has grown in me. It is a cool Pokemon, hope its stats will be good. Can't wait to see how Eevee will evolve into Sylveon.

I voted Normal because I was not expecting a new type, actually it was quite excepted but I just was hoping there will be no new type and wanted to believe they won't add an new type for the sake of the game. But apparently I am falling in love of the Fairy type. :]

LOL I voted flying because I NEVER expected a new type, the name Fairy wasn't appealing to me at first but I'll live with it, & now I can finally use a Clefairy in my team with no regrets

If there is another they're keeping from us, I see it being Dragon as it fits with the pattern of the other duos having one member defeating the other, and thus far Dragon is only weak against itself (which is what made me think Sylveon was part dragon as we had/have yet to see a counterpart), Ice, and Fairy now. Also that'll make the theme of the generation mythical in typing oppose to spring and winter of gen 4, Night and Day of 2, and Water-Ice-Fire of 1.

I was positive on the day of Sylveon's release that it was a new type. It didn't look like any other type, and it was being kept secret.

I was leaning towards 'magic' type, but fairy type is just fine. Adds another mythical creature to the ranks.

To be honest a new type didn't even enter my mind until like two weeks later when speculation about the Fairy type was rife, I was initially convinced that Sylveon was a Flying type.

I thought the same thing at first sight, but I allowed my desire for a Dragon eeveelution muddy my judgement. Now if only there was a Dragon counterpart to Sylveon...

I thought Sylveon was Flying Type till the Big Reveal. I never though Fairy Type would happen, but now I'm a big Fan of Fairy Type.

Dragon vs Fairy evolutions would be great. They got to make a dragon sometime. However, I don't think there will be a new Eevee.

Because, after all the hype with Sylveon, anything else would be a second banana. No one would be as excited as they were for Sylveon. There is so much limelight on Sylveon, it just wouln't be fair to the others.

True, but some other pairs and trios have had one member get more lime light than others such as Zekrom in the spin offs compared to Reshiram, just look at Conquest, as well as Zekrom appearing more in the anime.

Hopefully this lime light inequality will be fixed with giving a main character a dragon eeveelution if there's one.

I'm thinking Sylveon will be special oriented as the Fairy type moves we've seen look quite special like...which would make sense as Eevee has evolved into all the special types except for dragon. Fairy came after gen 3 but it still seems to have similar characteristics as psychic and dragon (well the special dragon moves) to some extent. So Sylveon being the first non formerly special eeveelution being special oriented can be like a shout out to the formerly special eeveelutions.

I wonder if Sylveon will have the usual moves that the other Eeveelutions do in the beginning (Tackle, Sand-Attack, Quick Attack, etc.)? I also kind of wonder if Sylveon will be like Suicune and have Gust as one of its moves because of the streamer-like tails they have?

Here's an idea... sorry if it's already been discussed.

What if there is another Eeveelution that hasn't been announced? They've always come out in pairs as far as I can remember. Something to counter Sylveon... like a Dragon Eevee?

Gamefreak has said there are no set patterns. Just because they were released in pairs twice doesn't mean anything. Most of the marketing for Sylveon has been saying she's the only new Eevee evolution.

I highly doubt there will be another Eeveelution introduced, I just can't see it happening especially now that we've got a new type accommodated with Sylveon. It's fine as it is tbh.

looking up the height of the Eeveelutions, Sylveon is larger than all the others. Why do you think that is? Why is Sylveon the larger one?

Actually, Sylveon isn't larger than the others. I'm assuming you're talking about both height and weight. You see, with height, Eevee is 1'00", Vaporeon, Umbreon, Leafeon, and Sylveon are all 3'03". Jolteon is 2'07", and Flareon and Espeon are both 2'11". With weight, Sylveon is the second lightest, losing only to Eevee. Vaporeon is the heaviest. So I guess Vaporeon is the largest Eeveelution. Hope that cleared everything up!

I must have not paid attention then. you see I deal with only Flareon & Jolteon's height on a frequent basis. and occasionally Eevee. because in my photomanipulations those are the three I use most (and Sylveon) and all three are 2' and Sylveon is 3'. don't do much with other Eeveelutions so...

I merged your topic with this more general Sylveon thread.

I'm probably late but, I knew Sylveon was going to be a new type. I thought it was going to be Light type and that Light and Sound would be introduced this time but, I was wrong. I was not expecting Fairy to be a type. I've accepted it but, I'm still indifferent about it. I knew it wouldn't be Normal type because...well, why wouldn't a Normal type Eeveelution, look like Eevee? And it didn't look like Flying for me and when I was trying to guess its type I was already on the new type boat. Also, I'm fully expecting a second eeveelution to be brought out alongside Sylveon. It'll either be Dragon, since Fairy is super effective to it, or, it'll be something that is super effective to Fairy. I'm kind of hoping for Dragon though. I suppose it doesn't matter since I already got my Umbreon but, I can still speculate!

We're in gen 6 hun. Gen 5 didn't have any eevee evolutions.



EDIT:

Just saw a picture that was from the video showcasing Fairy Type Pokemon. Sylveon has the Male symbol by its name. I didn't remember anyone saying that Sylveon was male so I thought I should bring it up.

No Gender based Evolution got Eevee as Sylveon most likely retains the 87.5:12.5 Male to Female ratio that the line has.

According to what the info states, it will be stronger than a legendary pokemon.. Faster than deoxys, stronger than arceus but only at Lv. 100. Well how it evolves. is by a fairy stone.. Don,t ask but moon stone is being changed to a fairy stone.

More info will be coming soon. A friend in Japan told me this.
