    I think Sylveon is a gender-exclusive eevolution, because from its physical appearance, I think it's female and I think in order to obtain a Sylveon, they need a female Eevee, but the problem is... how can this work because friendship is already in use... does it need to hold a specific item?
    Seriously hope it isn't Female only just because then its the same as Vespiquen. Combee and Eevee have the same gender Ratio and Vespiquen isn't really worth the effort to hunt down a female combee. Gender exclusives as in plural can be ruled out since the movie is supposed to showcase "all" Eevee Evolutions and it only shows 8. It has a good chance that it is normal ratio cause if its 100% Female I'm petitioning for Gamefreak to make Espeon, Vaporeon, Glaceon, and Leafeon female only because they are just as feminin with very little masculine qualities to be found. Umbreon and Jolteon should be made 100% Male as well.

      I really can't imagine them not giving away Sylveon's type after so long, if it isn't a new type. This also makes me think that the legendaries could possibly be new types as well since they are holding off on giving up their types as well? I mean especially since they gave up the new pokemons' type revealed in the corocoro scans so easily, it just makes me think they would have already given up the typings if they were not new types. I don't think Light or Fairy types will be a thing though. I also think it would be hard to introduce new types after 5 generations of pokemon. On the other hand though, why else would they keep these pokemons' type a secret for so long?

        Because they can. Sylveon plays an important role in its mini movie. So they don't want to ruin it with possible spoilers and apparently its type could be a possible spoiler. As for legends. I don't see why they should have to. Sure Zekrom and Reshiram were shown right off, Kyurem's forms took a while to be released if I remember right. Most thought that Kyurem would lose its Dragon typing for Zekrom and Reshiram's primary typings of Electric and Fire. I wasn't here for Gen 4, but from what my friends had told me they took a bit of time for revealing as well.

        They don't have to give us the type if they don't want to. They think its building suspense and unlike how we usually respond internationally, the main focus usually has a positive reaction despite the length for mundane types.

          Screw it I'm on the new type bandwagon now. Why would they hide its type for so long if it were an existing one? It's mundane marketing if it was so it should be a new type.

          Smash's findings seem to contradict the new rumors though. Based of Fairy type's strengths/weaknesses.

            Weak to Poison, strong against Water. They only way that's possible it Grass which has been done. New type definitely.

                Not Fighting: obviously.

                Weak to Poison: Excellent!

                Strong against Ice: Stop making Ice types an even worse defensive typing, Game Freak.

                That's all I know about the common information regarding Sylveon from Smash. The rest I'm not even sure are true because other information about its type advantages and disadvantages varies from user to user such as it being weak to Rock or it being SE against Fire.

                  If "Fairy" is strong against Ice, Ice will need more dual-typed Pokemon.
                  Maybe an Ice/Steel type with Technician + Frost Breath, an Ice/Fighting type with the same combo, and an Ice/Flying (Delibird is like, Snow/Flying XD).
                  I've also always wanted to see a Dark/Ice Pokemon (not like Sneasel and Weavile, but a dark type Pokemon with ice claws and/or mask).
                  Back on the Sylveon topic, yeah, it's a new type for sure.

                    I don't think they meant she is weak to poison. I believe she is neutral to it. They were only trying to check if she was immune to poison aka steel type because the previous test showed she was strong against ice.

                    I think the big reveal on May 19th will indeed be Sylveon's type after all this non-sense testing that makes no sense so far. I use to think it was flying for sure, but now I am definetly leaning towards a new typing.

                      I'm still going with Bu-...wait, you mean they aren't strong against Ice? All right, I'm clueless now.

                        Pokejungle edited their original translation to say that it was strong against her/she was weak to it. Still highly pointless add in, but there can be an error translating meaning. We have to wait until the type reveal in the next few weeks.

                        So basically all this testing did was revealing nothing at all? Wow, awesome...
                        I guess they only wanted to start people speculating again, since the
                        testing was really cryptic and basically leaves us only with the option of Sylveon being a new type

                          Like I said, they'll keep it a secret for as long as they possibly can, then either have it revealed in the movie itself or in the final trailer used to promote the movie in Japan (which still BTW get a film screening unlike here where they are only DVD releases or Cartoon Network debuts).

                          They know what type it is, I think the skit was done to tease a little bit. It dosent seem like if you go by that that Sylveon is any current type.

                            I don't really understand the logic of Fairy being super effective against ice. I can understand being weak to poison because they're so pure but not the ice part.

                            Are we sure it was showing that she was super effective against ice and not just regular effectiveness?

                              Are we sure it was showing that she was super effective against ice and not just regular effectiveness?
                              Pure? Original incarnation of Fairy is evil and vile creatures that harm man for their own amusement. Fairy used to be what we'd call demons today. If anything weak to poison makes the least amount of sense and seems so incredibly pointless.

                                Maybe not. Maybe the Sylveon cosplayer is the only one who knows in the group, as it must react in certain ways to the different types of environments. The rest may actually not know in order to minimize the chance of the secret leaking.

                                Smash hosts can get inside info before its released to the public. Shoko-tan leaked Zekrom's type accidently. Im fairly sure the Smash hosts have probably been told Sylveon's type but were pretending not to know for the skit.

                                  But if it's a new type, then all they might know is just that: "new type". They may not know the details yet.

                                    Ah yes we all remembered that, the amount of people surprised by the revelation was priceless

                                    Ugh I really, really hope that it is not strong against Ice types if it is a new type. I'm so sick of Ice types being weak to everything and if anything Ice should resist the new type because it's getting really annoying.

                                      Same here, I actually hope Ice is super effective against the type...
                                      Also as to why fairies may be weak against poison could be that in several legends nymphs and such creatures would become dry and would die if their lakes, streams, forests, etc. became polluted.

                                        Except you know that there are many different incarnations of fairies. Not all of them vile or evil.

                                        Considering this is pokemon we're talking about and we already have dark type pokemon. Plus that pokemon like Clefairy and Snubbull are supposed to be getting the fairy type. I would imagine fairy would cover the more pleasant, magical and whimsical kind of fairies.

                                          I see tradition fairies as being more amoral creatures than actually Vile, they did anything that would provide them entertainment be it good or bad, usually bad...
                                          Anyways I do have a feeling like they may go for the Disney version but who knows...

                                            No official source has said that either Clefairy or Snubbull are getting retyped. That appeared in many contradicting rumors which have all been proven as false thanks to Pokemon Smash last Saturday. So there are so far no Pokemon getting retyped. All previous rumors about Fairy type are false and have been proven to be so.

                                            We know Sylveon is a new type, but its type hasn't been confirmed.
