    not that the other pokemon dont have fangs, but maybe there's a reason that in the scan, only sylveon's are shown. but everything's speculation. just thought id bring something new (or at least newer) :) you may or are right

      Trust me, they're humans like the rest of us, they like to pull our legs on this quite often.
      Ironically, those who guessed correctly will be the trolls on Gamefreak. "Just tell us next time, you developer people! We're onto you!"

        I actually joined to post this because no one else had... Sylveon looks like a vampire to me. What type that would be is anyone's guess, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a ghost-type.

        I don't know about the rest of the world, but the western world strongly associates vampires with the "widow's peak," which Sylveon has. If you just Google "vampire clipart," they ALL have it. (Sylveon also has fangs and its eyes look a little odd to me.)

          Even if Leafeon and Flareon aren't special attackers, before physical/special split, both of these type where special attacks, as were water,ice,electric, psychic, dark.

          Dragon is the last ''special attack type'' that's what the author meant by the are ''special att''.

            I think Sylveon might be a flying type. Its ribbons remind me of a kite.

              I honestly have to lean toward Flying for this one. Besides just the bows, the ribbons themselves look very airy to me, as well as a lot about the design. I was always expecting that a Flying-type eevee would have wings, though.

              I feel that it wouldn't be Normal, mostly because of all the hype being built up around the Pokemon, and that Normal is so... boring.

              And I'm definitely praying for no new types. I think I'll shoot myself before fighting literally with the power of love.

              There is nothing to indicate that it's a flying type, really all the evidence I have seen so far point to Ghost, Normal and Dragon types. With Dragon and Normal being equally the most likely in my eyes at this point.

              Dragon
              Colours resembling the Gen III button for the dragon type fit the "pattern" of eeveelutions having colours matching/related to their type.
              Dragon was a "special type" prior to Gen III as were the types of the other eeveelutions. (the strongest argument of any so far if you ask me)
              Fangs have been shown.

              Normal
              Pink is a colour commonly associated with both Psychic and Normal but there is already a psychic eeveelution.
              Cute appearance.
              Ribbons/Bow which are usually associated with the normal type.
              Only shown using moves Eevee learns (probably due to worry about revealing its type accidentally though).

              Ghost
              Lightest Eeveelution - Ghosts are usually very light.
              Lifeless eyes
              expanding/contracting ribbons which have a sort of eerie weightlessness too them.

              I'll probably give more later.

                Also another point to my Normal type speculation;
                A held-item introduced in the 2nd Generation called the Pink Bow boosts Normal type moves. Sylveon has Pink Bows.

                  Good reasons are being given, but I just can't see it being Normal in type. I give it the longest odds.

                    i don't know why some people so sure sylveon is a flying type
                    exept it feel airy or flying type there is no serious evidence

                    of course nothing sure and it may end being a flying type, but right while we are just guessing i don't see nothing pointing sylveon will be a flymg type

                    hope you don't take personally, just seems weird to me

                        I personally follow the new type scenario. With all of this new content that differentiates from previous games, why not a new type? We can all see that various evidence has come into play supporting many different possibilities. So, while all of these factors go in different directions, it seems to prove that there is something that we don't know, perhaps being a new type!

                        The new movie trailer is out, and there's a small piece near the end beginning at 1:30 that shows Sylveon from the new Pikachu Short. It definitely shows quite a bit of what Sylveon can do... any guesses on what its type may be now?

                        After watching it, I no longer have any idea as to what it could be. Even its little badge that they all have seems vague. At this point it really is either a new type or just a really obscure Flying-type (IMO).

                        edit: Actually, thinking about it more, it really could be a Dragon-type. Dragon-type Pokémon are the only ones I can think of that could do what Sylveon did in the trailer.

                            That looks like an Egg, so I have a new conclusion. It's the Joy type!

                            Wait, that's corny.

                            I'm sticking with Ghost.

                              I'm still going with Flying, if not Light.

                              Has a wing in it! COINCIDENCE? I TINKS NOT.

                              I was reminded of Skyla's Gym Badge when I saw it xD Combine that with Sylveon's colors and I think we know that in order to get Sylveon you have to let Skyla borrow your Eevee!

                              I kid, I kid! :p But I do think that wing is far too wing-like to just be a random shape.

                                Oh, and you wanna know why it's egg-shaped?

                                'CAUSE BIRDIES LAY EGGS.

                                I think we have solved the mystery. Just wait and see.

                                Also, behind Sylveon's right ear, there's another arched wing-like depiction. Looks like an eagle wing, but it's not as evident.

                                That other wing is way too obvious, though. And the fact, y'know, it's TOTALLY AN EGG = birds = flapflapflap.

                                Spoiler:


                                +



                                =



                                Evidence To Support Flying-Type Theory

                                - Butterfly ribbons depict both flying and mimic Skyla's hair tie
                                - Flowing ribbons are the same style and shape as Wingull's wings; Wingull being a flying-type
                                - Wing-like symbol in its "egg" in the new trailer
                                - The fact that it is encased in an "egg," whereas in real-life birds lay eggs

                                Plus, a lot of Flying types are Normal/Flying. It's not impossible (although it would be breaking a trend) that this Eeveelution is Flying/Normal, based on its looks, its colours and its attacks - which so far, have been very not Flying-like.

                                Evidence Against

                                - Colour Palette is more Normalish
                                - No wings = flawed design for a Flying type
                                - Attacks seen so far are not very Flying-like

                                Hmm.

                                  Maybe that " wing" is really a 90 degrees flipped fang/tooth, and Dragons lay are said to eggs too...

                                    Perhaps, but if it is a Dragon-type, then I know where Nintendo got their inspiration from...

                                    Spoiler:


                                    And we wouldn't want that, would we :(

                                    And so far, to my knowledge, there are no "cute" style Dragons. Dragons are mean, vicious, jagged-tooth, clawed creatures with ginormous wings and slashing tales. They are strong, muscular, manly beasts!

                                    All of which Sylveon... is not.

                                    Dragons

                                    The only cutiepie is Dratini/Dragonair (which evolves into manly Dragonite) and Altaria. But again, Sylveon doesn't share many Dragon traits as of now.

                                      Sylveon doesn't really share anything with Skyla though. That was a rushed conclusion brought up with very little actual support. The colors aren't right and Skyla's hair pin/bow is a flower, not a butterfly. The colors are closer to Iris' champion dress which has a pale ribbon in the back and a bow on the front.

                                      Also the "wing" is the same shape as Burgh's badge not Skyla's.

                                      Insect
                                      Jet

                                      Its closer to Insect than Jet.

                                      I think the shapes on the egg are just coincidence as the ones behind the ear we'll never be able to make out. If the top part isn't two separate images like I think then it looks like a claw/tooth.

                                        I still find it strange as a Flying type. I would never have thought of those entrails as wings. But yeah, I didn't notice the wing in the egg (the egg clearly meant, I think, to symbolize that it's still new and not in use yet, as well as anything else).

                                        The point by Xander that it looks more like Burgh's Bug Badge, however...how many of you people chose Bug? I did think the eyes could pass for that, so it's looking like those are the two leading candidates based on this new egg shape. I wasn't convinced enough to put it in front of a Dragon possibility, though I had no founded reason for Dragon typing.

                                        Supporting the Bug theory, which is not much posted on here, I found the following which I will quote from another message board (I'm assuming this is allowed, but if not, I will edit it down to relevant points or just link). This was posted way back in mid-February.

                                        Quote:
                                        Now, we know the Japanese name 'Ninfia'

                                        We know the English name 'Sylveon'

                                        and while people have made the connection that Sylve = Sylph = flying

                                        I believe that looking at the German and French names (which everyone seems to be forgetting) reveals a lot more than the English name.

                                        In German Ninfia is known as 'Feelinara' which sounds like feeling or feline (possibly hinting to the fact that Eevee can evolve through the new bond mechanic)

                                        In French however Ninfia is known as Nymphali = Nymph = Woodland forest creature.

                                        However, when you translate Nymphale (sounding a lot like Nymphali) into English you get 'Pupal'


                                        Which is defined by the English dictionary as:

                                        "The nonfeeding stage between the larva and adult in the metamorphosis of holometabolous insects, during which the larva typically undergoes complete transformation within a protective cocoon or hardened case."
                                        That sounds Buggy to me.

                                        So I would say this is a valid possibility, and Flying and Bug have become the two top candidates. I'm eating crow on my immediate Ghost guess, as Bugs can also be quite light compared to other types.

                                          Maybe it's a new take on a new Flying-type badge in Region X&Y :P

                                          Or it could be a purposefully inverted Insect Badge as to match the butterfly ribbons and hint on it being a Flying type.

                                          Also, as of now, all the other eeveelutions have symbols around them reflecting their type. Something on that egg has to not be coincidence, and I'd say the fact that a) it's an egg, and b) it has a wing-like thing on it.

                                          But I can see Dragon being a possibility, too; it's just that, although Sylveon shares very little Flying characteristics (other than Wingull ribbons that are flowy), I can see zero Dragon features. That'd be one weird Dragon type.

                                          And if it's Bug... Well, the eyes kinda remind me of Butterfree's and Butterfree's shiny palette definitely makes sense. Insects also lay eggs in real life, too. I still don't think it's insect though. Look at that moveset! If it doesn't look Flying-ish, it certainly isn't Bug-ish.

                                            Though what if sylveon is not a one type Pokemon maybe it's two types. Like Normal Flying and such what do you guys think? :3
