In a way it does remind me somewhat of Chimecho and kind of like those tag things used in Sailor Moon but that's all, really that I see that relates to ghost :(

I think we know by now that colour doesn't mean much in the way of types. It would be nice if it were flying though. The ribbons would look pretty blowing around in the wind.

Yeah they would! Also if Sylveon were to get Hurricane... well, that'd make it really awesome in comparison to the other Eeveelutions :3;

    If it learns Outrage, and Dragon Pulse, and Dragon Dance it'll be better than the rest...also all the other eeveelution's types won't be super effective against it except for Glaceoen...

    It has probably been said, but what if it evolves once it has a certain amount if ribbons?

    That would certainly be a unique evolution method.

    Im pretty stumped about it's type honestly, it's very vague. I see it either being Normal, Flying or a new type at this point. Ive seen a lot of people saying "oh Normal type will just be a bigger Eevee" but we do not know that for a fact at all, it's only speculated, it has the chance to be a Normal type. There are some tidbits of evidence for Flying type as well, since it's ribbons were shown blowing in the wind, It's name resembles Sylph, an air elemental spirit, which is said to not have visible wings. Also Ive read Sylvidae is a genus of birds, which may relate to Flying type as well. It also the lightest Eeveelution. Jolteon also does not have an opposite( either weak or strong to it) so that's another thing to think about. Also I may be the only one who notices it's ears look like feathers a bit?

    Of course there's also the possibility of a new type. I doubt they are making this big a deal about it for no reason, this implies there is something different about Sylveon in particular, including the possiblity it may be a brand new type, which might explain why it's being introduced by itself. There is also nothing about Sylveon that implies it is any existing type, which is why there is so much debate about what type it is.

    A new trailer has been released for the upcoming movie, and near the end of the video (starting at 1:21) it shows Sylveon in its animated form. Not to discuss the short itself, but the location and Sylveon's surrounding in the video seem to suggest it as a Flying type. Not to mention, the actual location seems to be atop a very large and tall tree!! That could be the biggest clue of all given that Eevee evolves to adapt to its surroundings.

    ...or maybe that's just what I want it to suggest in my head. I don't know. :x

    Sylveon's ribbon thingies are acting like tentacles in the movie short, it can control them like any being can control its muscles. Makes me wonder what type it is even more. Perhaps it fly's by flapping them really hard?

      Hm, did you guys noticed those flowers that surrounded it? Could that have something to do with Sylveon's evolution? Maybe it's to suggest that to evolve Eevee to Sylveon, you'd have to evolve it to a specific location that has flowers?

      Probably just the locale for the movie. Thought if it does involve flowers that could imply bug, perhaps through pollenization?

      I think Sylveon will evolve via a new, different way. First we have via stones, via time of day, location, etc. It could evolve via level up with a held item (which technically has happened before but still) or a certain gender. It could be a forme for all we know. But I'm willing to bet it's a Flying or Normal type now.

      Flying or new for me. Definitely can see it being female only also, but to what extent that would involve its evolution method...

        Tropius. Salamence. Shaymin. Landorus. You can't go on design alone; Gyarados is a Flying-type.

        I'm 100% going for Flying-type. I think the location in that video clip as well definitely indicates it to being a Flying-type. Maybe it just levitates? Idk.

        If it were female only, it'd be difficult to get, with Eevee's gender ratio. Also it looks like it'd have 130 in speed.

          By appearance alone I would have assumed it was a normal type just because I don't see characteristics from any other type, but seeing as how Eevee is a normal type and all the other eeveelutions have a different type my guess would have to be flying type.

          Also like to note that dragon is the only special type that hasn't been used yet, so maybe it could be that?

          EDIT I THINK I FIGURED IT OUT

          Pokemon X & Y represent Chromosomes, right? Which in part determine gender.

          XX= Female
          XY = Male

          What if Sylveon has something to do with that theme? And Sylveon is the female evolution of eevee, and can only be obtained by evolving eevee in X in some way, since X is the female dominant chromosome. (all vertebrate mammals start as females) Level it up in Y in some way, and you'll get a yet-to-be-unveiled Male evolution.

          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

          Okay, the way they look up at the sky and show Sylveon, its a flying type, isn't it.

            I was thinking because the butterfly bows then bug type but the video only shows moves Eevee learns so it is extremely difficult to tell but I could imagine it using Quiver Dance

              I've seen speculations about that before, but yeah, that's definitely a possibility, and I'd love if GF went down that road! It can be an added incentive on people preferring the rarer Female Eevee.

              I too, think it's a flying type, but... could GF really play the obvious-game here? They can very well pull a curve ball. @[email protected]

              Given that it's an Eeveelution and not some other new Pokémon, regardless of what type it turns out to be, I don't see it being dual-typed. I'm almost 99.8% sure of it, and if I'm wrong, well...



              There's a first for everything, I suppose.

              First off, supernatural gif! *squee*
              Second, yeah dual type is definitely not happening. Only way that happens is if Eevee's adaptability glitches or something.

                I'm starting to get annoyed about everyone suggesting Sylveon's type as Normal and Flying, because they're ignoring the pattern of Eeveelutions being types formerly special-based prior to Gen IV, so the only possible type for Sylveon is Dragon, which is the last special-based type, or a new type that might've been special-based if it existed.

                  Salamence is a dragon that flies. They could do anything here, really.

                    Since it has OTHER evolutions and a gender ratio of 87.5% Male to 12.5% Female, I think there is a good chance that there will NOT be gender specific Eevee Evolutions. Why? As I've said before the only Pokemon that had Gender Specified evolutions added to them were already a 50:50 ratio for Male and Female. The only Pokemon with 2 specific gender evolutions is also a 50:50 ratio. While the only Pokemon with 1 gender evolution and no alternate evolution is 87.5% Male to 12.5% Female. Since Eevee is getting a gender added to it, based on what has happened in the past, Eevee would have to be 50:50 ratio for that to happen. Since it isn't I don't believe Sylveon is 100% Female. Considering they have to introduce a new item to evolve Eevee into Sylveon, I cannot see it be a gender specific evolution as that is too much work getting a female with a 1 to 9 chance in favor of males AND needing to get the item evolve it.

                    Pure Flying has very little base to make a solid design for and make very little sense in practical use. Flying is also rumored to be "Bird" type as an original name. Either way it has always been a Sub type for Pokemon, meaning it itself was never the main focus type for any Pokemon before Tornadus. I hope that Tornadus is the last/only pure flying type as it really doesn't need to be anything more than an add on type that it has always been.

                    A lot of people don't ignore it, but they turn a blind eye to that simple fact due to wild speculation around Sylveon's name and how it looks. There is more fan speculation to cover up a simple fact that it gets pushed a side by most. I really don't care about type this late as I'll get Sylveon to fill the dex only as I don't see any potential in it unless they have a really killer move pool which is something Eevee Evolutions do not tend to have.
