  • Sylphs are historically only female, meaning that Sylveon is likely to be a female-only evolution of Eevee.
  • This implies that there must be a male counter-part to avoid having to introduce two new types of evolution!
  • As the new types introduced are usually opposites of each other, what could be better as an opposite to Flying than a Ground type?
  • A bulky wall-like male Ground type eeveelution would rival the speedy (sylphs are very fast!) and nimble Flying type Sylveon perfectly.
Thoughts? :D
That actually makes a lot of sense, and fits in with the X and Y theme, both the axis and genetics.
