Wow, that actually would explain the eyes and fangs! And its elegance could make it vampire-based. Not sure how the name ties in with it (well, it would tie in with Nynfia), but that's not a bad interpretation at all! I'm definitely keeping that on my possibilities list.

I didn't know that. But that makes sense. I should have searched that but since that is a lot of Pokémons with weird types, I thought that Vibrava was just more one. But thanks for informing me.
Anyway, I think Sylveon will not be dragon type but yes, flying type due to the prefix. Like the others prefixes of olders eeveelotuions resemble to something, "Sylph", in this case, resembles to the air.
I think that isn't more anything to argue about this.

Sylveon doesn't look like a ghost type to me. It looks like a normal type. But I think it will be a flying type because lots of people are also saying it'll be a flying type c; I don't think it'll be a light type because err.. I just don't want a light type c;

I think it fits in well in terms of design with the other Eeveelutions, I was slightly skeptical at first but I'm really warming to it now! Especially after finding out it's English translated name. Plus, the Eeveelution count is at a nice rounded figure now.

Why is the pic lined up for super effective and weakness equality? Don't tell me Sylveon is flying...

It's funny you mention that, because I noticed this earlier. It definitely supports the idea of Sylveon being Flying, since Water is already taken.

I wouldn't mind if it was, really. It seemed that, to most people, that it was flying-type anyway~! I look at that picture for a good 10 minutes or so and realized that it would make sense if it was flying if that image was paired due to super-effectiveness.

EDIT: Nevermind...

I'd love for Sylveon to be Flying, personally. I'm just curious as to how it will evolve. Will it be location-based? Or maybe the first trade Eeveelution?

They're lined up pretty awkwardly at first. Dark is super-effective against Psychic, Leafeon and Vaporeon are on opposite sides, meaning Grass is super-effective against Leafeon. Same thing with Flareon and Glaceon, since they're on opposite sides! :3

That short trailer and the flowing ribbons is only convincing me more and more that it is a Flying-type(along with the Sylph talk) and it's just too friggin' adorable that I have to finally admit it.

Yeah the first move definitely looks like Focus Blast. As for the third one, maybe Focus Energy? Or I guess it could be a new move altogether, it doesn't have a resemblance of any current move that really sticks out.

By that logic it could easily be reversed, meaning Sylveon is Super Effective against Jolteon which makes it a Ground Type, something that hasn't been used either.

It's most probably a flying type, but after I saw the trailer I think it's a normal type.

Arguably I could say that it "doesn't" look like a ground pokemon, and I'm still betting on it to be flying, but, maybe the next issue will tell.

While that's true, even if GameFreak is trying to go for a more ambiguous design with Sylveon, I highly doubt that it's going to end up being a Ground type. I would picture something just a little bit more earthly than that even if the possibility is there.

After the moves it used the only 2 sticking out to me are normal and flying.

Each eeveelution has their own distinct visual traits sticking them out, umbreon with hoops, glaceon with the glacier earring looking things, leafeon with the leafs, jolteon with the spikes and so on.

It's clear that Sylveons are tassles, or ribbons and bows. Which in a sense reminds me of chimecho family nd Jirachi, all pokemon which can fly and float. The pink look of the pokemon still makes it seem like a normal type though, fitting in with the puffs and clefs.

I'm stil not sure, I'll place my wager on flying though, which would be slightly weird to see a 4 legged pokemon just flying in the air :L

Now you're just talking crazy, haha.

We all know that it would look more, as Aerilyn says, earthy if it were really a ground type. So far they have managed to give each Eeveelution a look that fits it's type really well, this doesn't look even remotely close to a ground type.

It's just how they're currently portraying it, they've highlighted that they are keeping the typing a secret which may imply that it is ambiguous. If it was going to be something predictable by the appearance, they wouldn't bother keeping it a secret at all. Plus, an earthy design would be far too similar to Leafeon IMO. There are the odd few Pokemon who don't look remotely close to their typing too.

When I heard Sylveon as being the English name, I immediately thought of Sylph. Don't much about mythology but in the Tales of series they're almost always associated with wind. So I'll stick with it being a flying-type.

Still see Victini when I see it's face, lol.

Judging by the image, it could be these following:

- If Sylveon is a Flying type, then Jolteon has the advantage
- If Sylveon is a new type, then either the type itself has the advantage against Electric or is weak to Electric.

Yeah that's what I thought too~! Sylph is a wind spirit in the Tales games, which sorta associate it with wind or Flying! Other than that, Sylphs are generally related to air or wind from alchemy. So, I'm betting it'll be a flying type as well.

Hm... thinking about it, the colors of it are quite intriguing. I mean, noticed that the colors are not exactly monochrome like the rest of the eeveelutions (well, maybe kind of barring Leafeon) that sorta represent their type? Well, maybe it's something minor, but, I see it very unique compared to the rest of the eeveelutions, if anything. It can be a very interesting flying type if it turns out to be one.

Majority of Wind based attacks aren't flying type. I'll have to get a full count when I'm on a computor, but right off the top of my head, Silver Wind (bug), Icy Wind (ice), Ominous Wind (ghost), Gust (flying), Hurricane (flying), Whirlwind (normal), and Razor Wind (normal). These I remember right off as definate wind based attacks. Going to look up the others if there are others, but my point wind =/= flying in every aspect.

So Sylveon being wind doesn't mean its guaranteed Flying. They can sneak in another type pretty easily.

My only question is: If the moves in the trailer were Focus Blast, Swift, Trump Card, and Future Sight, can Eevee and its evolutions learn all four? The evolutions and Eevee are usually very limited in their move pools due to Eevee's ability to have a large number of evolutions. I can't see it learning Focus Blast and Future sight if its Flying.

Of those, Silver Wind, Ominous Wind and Icy Wind are non-flying for the same reason Fire Punch and its relatives are non-fighting: To allow Pokemon of a certain type access to types of attacks it might not get otherwise. Also, you forgot Aeroblast, Air Cutter, Air Slash, Defog, and Tailwind.

There is one rather mad theory I found on Instagram suggesting Sylpheon will be the first "Love" Type Pokemon, based on the following:

>There are several moves centered around love/attraction (Sweet Kiss, Charm, Attract, etc.)
>Umbreon was the fourth Eeveelution and introduced the Dark-type, so since Slyptheon is the eighth, it may be a new type.
>Internationally revealed on Valentine's Day
>CoroCoro hinted at not being able to expect Slypheon's type
>All Eeveelutions resist themselves, so Flying, Dragon, Ground and all other current typings would fail since they do not resist themselves (Bar Steel, but we've ruled that out)
>Yancy, the Trainer from BW2 that poses as Nat'es "love interest" has a very similar design to Slypheon.

Thoughts?

A Love Type? I'm not sure about that. Though... it can be interesting.

Eh, honestly, I don't think the moves in the video tell us very much about it's typing anyway. It gives us barely any hints at all. The first move and third move are too ambiguous to draw any conclusions from (we can't even conclusively determine what type they are). Trump Card is a level up move for Eevee and distributed seemingly at random, and Swift (if it's Swift) is widely distributed to Pokemon of all types, including Espeon by level up and all the other Eevolutions by Move tutor in HGSS and Emerald. It using those moves doesn't necessarily even mean they're in its own natural movepool and even if we did know that for sure it wouldn't tell us much.
