Well if the method depends on movement of the 3DS like with the rumored evolution of a rumored Pokemon, Nintendo could always put that into their other systems as other games may use it/ they keep the step counter in future consoles, and if not they'll proably go down the Feebas route as seen in Gen 5.

For things like the rumored Gyroscope evolution, I don't see stuff like that going away in new handhelds. If Sylveon were to evolve with a method like that, I'd assume that it would be able to stay the same in future generations. I doubt they'd use the same evolution method as Pancham though (if the gyroscope method rumor turns out to be true), so I don't know how else they would use the 3DS features to evolve it.

Pancham's rumored method is evolving with a Dark type and by level up isn't it? The one with the Gyroscope is some other not seen (rumored) Pokémon.
Besides they could use the method again like how the Sinnoh eeveelutions weren't the only one's that evolve by leveling up in a certain location.
Maybe Sylveon will go back to the roots of Gen 1 eeveelution and evolve by stone? Maybe a stone that evolves the new type?

A whole new type! Like... Fairy type! Mind you, it would completely ruin the originals. Like Cleffairy and excreta. But what about the moves? Pixie glance? Magic wand? Plus what about the effects? Paralyses, Poison, Sleep? I'm going to go with sleep. I'm doubting my decision, but think about it, Sylveon hasn't even got wings! xD

Here's what I think:
Generation V was like a re-birth of Generation I, that's why there were no evo's or pre-evo's of other pokemon or a Remake of the Gen. III games. This generation will be like Generation II, which makes me think it will introduce at least one new type. This, along with Nintendo/Gamefreak keeping it's type so secret, leads me to believe Sylveon is some new type.

No, you're really not the only one. xD; I'm just hoping it's really an existing type for the sake of type chat balance, but that doesn't seem too likely, since it doesn't really look like any type except for Normal. .__.;;

Oh no you are not! Fairy doesn't sound good at all to me. I'm not sure if i want to have a new type introduces, but if they do, it should definitely get a better name than Fairy.

I like Fairy type because although at first it sounds like something really girly and pink, but there are plenty of fairies that are actually pretty deadly and evil so hopefully if Fairy is real then we'll have a good mix of both types of fairies and not just the cutesy pink ones.

I suggested calling it Spirit before as traditional fairies are a kind of spirit, however it maybe overlap with Ghost. Maybe call it the Mystic type? It'll it could be like of combo of the fairy and magic type speculations.

Eh, I don't really like Mystic either. Maybe it's just me, I feel like mystical and psychic things go together almost, so those two types would overlap as well. If anything, I'd want to see it be Light, if it ends up existing. Just seems like to be a general thing that encompasses everything that's being speculated about. It still overlaps with Electric and Fire in a technical kind of way, but I'm kind of over that. It just fits better =P

I see Psychic as more sci-fi and Mystic as more magical/spiritual, though you do have a point, Light does sound better. I just feel like the "Light" type may become like "Pokémon Grey", it's obvious but it doesn't happen .

It'd be kind of awkward though if Sylveon is revealed to be a...."Light"-type of some sort, I suppose. I don't know, I feel that the name itself wouldn't fit with the overall design of the Pokemon. I guess Fairy would be the only thing that could fit, I suppose. D:

I honestly dont see the problem with Fairy as a type. There are lots of kinds of Fairies and it could be something they could draw a lot from. If Sylveon is indeed Fairy and that type is real, I see no problem.

I like Fairy more too(even though I'm not sure I like the idea of it) because, while some are pointing out how suggestions sound like already existing types, Light sounds close enough to Electric. I'd hope for a different name.

I don't see anything wrong with calling it Fairy, I just prefer Light =P Honestly Sylveon could fit into either typing fairly well. The Fairy is obvious, but if Light can also be akin to goodness or something, Sylveon just looks positive and part of good, therefore part of the Light type.

although I was completely against the thought of a new type ever existing, current evidence seems to highly point to that, so I'll just live with it :p

Anyway, instead of thinking light as how science defines it, an illumination in darkness, light can be viewed as reference to things holy or arcane in nature. Sylveon, from its name, directs it as fairies and we see fairies as either mysterious(arcane) or very magical(holy).

I'm so tired of the "fairies aren't always pink and girly.." yeah we get it. One can't be forced to accept or like a new type whether it comes to pass or not.

I really don't see how Fairy will help balance anything out, we just need retyping or reworking of type advantages or disadvantages.

And is Sylveon is a Fairy type, I do wish it had wings. The bows really don't help with anything. I guess it can use the tips to feel Pokemon? Like how it evolves via a bond so it feels the bond between Pokemon and their trainers...

That's an interesting concept, but maybe more Bug-type than anything... Regardless, I wouldn't mind seeing some sort of reference of this idea in Sylveon's PokeDEX entry.

I do think "Light" can accommodate a broader amount of Pokemon than "Fairy" would, so I'd be more inclined to hope that the new type is named Light.

Just, please. Not Heart. That's awful.

I think Heart might be pushing it a fair bit, I actually prefer it to be more Fairy/Light type than Heart. xD; That's just me though, it just...wouldn't really fit at all. x_x

I don't think Sylveon will be Light. Sylveon does not look like it has anything with light. I don't think light type will exist at all. Helioptile is Electric/Normal and it has a lot to do with light. My best guess is Fairy/Nymph/Wisp type. Something like that.

Also, notice how its colors scheme is pinkish & light blue on the ribbons and its ears? The dominant colors in Xerneas and Yveltal? The blue and the reddish-pink.

:D
Something about this paragraph gave me a crazy idea! Maybe Sylveon has something too do with Xerneas and Yveltal! Some sort of thing that has to do with Xerneas and Yveltal could be a held item that if Eevee leveled up while holding it, it would evolve into Sylveon. It's crazy but still possible.

At this point I'd say it is highly unlikely that Sylveon will have anything to do with Xerneas and Yveltal. Simply because I think that detracts from the impact and importance of the legendaries and almost hands over the spotlight to Sylveon. What you say makes it sound as though they were invented for the sole purpose of evolving an eevee which, whilst even if you are right, would be far from truth but still enough to take away from the game as a whole.

I'm going to guess that it is either another location-based evolution, another item evolution or something entirely new as we have seen with the previous eeveelutions (bond system?)

Sylveon practically has taken the attention away from the legends, most often one sees more speculation on Syl's type than the mascots >_<.
I think the bond system will be what evolves it considering it's looks.

I really don't think Sylveon being shown at about the same time as the legends has anything to do with the three of them being related. If anything, being related to Eevee and having a new evolution is enough for it to be revealed ahead of time, as the Eeveelutions are so dang popular. As the three of the being related, though I doubt it. The only thing that would probably link them is if Sylveon is a new type and one of the legends has the type as well, but that itself is barely a link.

The way I see it Psychic is related to the mind and it's a very inner personal ability. Whereas Mystic is related to an unknown questionable source of power that stems from the universe. The power is all around and the pokemon taps into it. So it's a more outward non-personal ability.

Whereas Psychic is logical and calculating. Mystic (or magic) is spontaneous and often unpredictable. Psychic is related to willpower and strength of the mind. Mystic is related to passion, dreams and wishes.

That's how I would separate the two at least.
