    Arguably I could say that it "doesn't" look like a ground pokemon, and I'm still betting on it to be flying, but, maybe the next issue will tell.

    While that's true, even if GameFreak is trying to go for a more ambiguous design with Sylveon, I highly doubt that it's going to end up being a Ground type. I would picture something just a little bit more earthly than that even if the possibility is there.

      After the moves it used the only 2 sticking out to me are normal and flying.

      Each eeveelution has their own distinct visual traits sticking them out, umbreon with hoops, glaceon with the glacier earring looking things, leafeon with the leafs, jolteon with the spikes and so on.

      It's clear that Sylveons are tassles, or ribbons and bows. Which in a sense reminds me of chimecho family nd Jirachi, all pokemon which can fly and float. The pink look of the pokemon still makes it seem like a normal type though, fitting in with the puffs and clefs.

      I'm stil not sure, I'll place my wager on flying though, which would be slightly weird to see a 4 legged pokemon just flying in the air :L

      Now you're just talking crazy, haha.

      We all know that it would look more, as Aerilyn says, earthy if it were really a ground type. So far they have managed to give each Eeveelution a look that fits it's type really well, this doesn't look even remotely close to a ground type.

      It's just how they're currently portraying it, they've highlighted that they are keeping the typing a secret which may imply that it is ambiguous. If it was going to be something predictable by the appearance, they wouldn't bother keeping it a secret at all. Plus, an earthy design would be far too similar to Leafeon IMO. There are the odd few Pokemon who don't look remotely close to their typing too.

      When I heard Sylveon as being the English name, I immediately thought of Sylph. Don't much about mythology but in the Tales of series they're almost always associated with wind. :laugh: So I'll stick with it being a flying-type.

      Still see Victini when I see it's face, lol.

        Judging by the image, it could be these following:

        - If Sylveon is a Flying type, then Jolteon has the advantage
        - If Sylveon is a new type, then either the type itself has the advantage against Electric or is weak to Electric.

          Yeah that's what I thought too~! Sylph is a wind spirit in the Tales games, which sorta associate it with wind or Flying! Other than that, Sylphs are generally related to air or wind from alchemy. So, I'm betting it'll be a flying type as well.

          Hm... thinking about it, the colors of it are quite intriguing. I mean, noticed that the colors are not exactly monochrome like the rest of the eeveelutions (well, maybe kind of barring Leafeon) that sorta represent their type? Well, maybe it's something minor, but, I see it very unique compared to the rest of the eeveelutions, if anything. It can be a very interesting flying type if it turns out to be one.

            Majority of Wind based attacks aren't flying type. I'll have to get a full count when I'm on a computor, but right off the top of my head, Silver Wind (bug), Icy Wind (ice), Ominous Wind (ghost), Gust (flying), Hurricane (flying), Whirlwind (normal), and Razor Wind (normal). These I remember right off as definate wind based attacks. Going to look up the others if there are others, but my point wind =/= flying in every aspect.

            So Sylveon being wind doesn't mean its guaranteed Flying. They can sneak in another type pretty easily.

            My only question is: If the moves in the trailer were Focus Blast, Swift, Trump Card, and Future Sight, can Eevee and its evolutions learn all four? The evolutions and Eevee are usually very limited in their move pools due to Eevee's ability to have a large number of evolutions. I can't see it learning Focus Blast and Future sight if its Flying.

              Of those, Silver Wind, Ominous Wind and Icy Wind are non-flying for the same reason Fire Punch and its relatives are non-fighting: To allow Pokemon of a certain type access to types of attacks it might not get otherwise. Also, you forgot Aeroblast, Air Cutter, Air Slash, Defog, and Tailwind.

                There is one rather mad theory I found on Instagram suggesting Sylpheon will be the first "Love" Type Pokemon, based on the following:

                >There are several moves centered around love/attraction (Sweet Kiss, Charm, Attract, etc.)
                >Umbreon was the fourth Eeveelution and introduced the Dark-type, so since Slyptheon is the eighth, it may be a new type.
                >Internationally revealed on Valentine's Day
                >CoroCoro hinted at not being able to expect Slypheon's type
                >All Eeveelutions resist themselves, so Flying, Dragon, Ground and all other current typings would fail since they do not resist themselves (Bar Steel, but we've ruled that out)
                >Yancy, the Trainer from BW2 that poses as Nat'es "love interest" has a very similar design to Slypheon.

                Thoughts?

                  A Love Type? I'm not sure about that. Though... it can be interesting.

                  Eh, honestly, I don't think the moves in the video tell us very much about it's typing anyway. It gives us barely any hints at all. The first move and third move are too ambiguous to draw any conclusions from (we can't even conclusively determine what type they are). Trump Card is a level up move for Eevee and distributed seemingly at random, and Swift (if it's Swift) is widely distributed to Pokemon of all types, including Espeon by level up and all the other Eevolutions by Move tutor in HGSS and Emerald. It using those moves doesn't necessarily even mean they're in its own natural movepool and even if we did know that for sure it wouldn't tell us much.

                    Love type? Personally I'll perfer a Fairie type, light type, sound type, and digital type over a love type...maybe call it emotion type instead.

                    I'm thinking that it'll be Flying, as it's the Pokemon version of Wind as can be seen with Tornadus who is pure flying and is based on the Kami of Wind.

                      I doubt the actual incorporation of "Love" as a typing, but who knows? One of the big motifs behind X/Y is bonding with your Pokemon, so maybe it will be a new typing to signify this deeper bond?

                      As for the moves Slyveon used, I'm gonna say the first move was Last Resort (Another level-up move for Eons) and the third move...well, I have no idea.

                      EDIT: Here's the image about the "Love" Type

                        I still see ghost and I just can't shake it. When I look at the magazine picture with sylveon in front with mouth open and the fangs....

                        The color is so very pale compared to the others - ghost
                        The blank stare in her eyes
                        The fangs.... Really? Do you see fangs on any of the others?
                        If it was flying I think the videos would show a hover animation or ... Just something..
                        The ribbons remind me of a ghost or spirit or the like

                        I would really hope if they ever do a flying type it actually has some kind of cute wings.

                          Actually, if you look closely, some the Eeveelutions do have fangs, like Umbreon here:



                          Ghost can certainly be an option out there too, but, then, I think it becomes the question of, "how does its typing relate to the other eeveelutions in a way?" Well... if that makes sense. But Ghost can still be an option for it.

                            Virtually any unused type is an option.

                            I can see Ghost in the aspect that Slyeon represents a happy spirit that is glad to be free. It'd be a nice change to the mischievous, darker images of Ghost-types.

                            Would love for it to be "Love" or "Emotion" or some new type though. The idea's stuck to me.

                            I honestly see more Skyla than Yancy in Sylveon.

                            I mean, if they add an entirely new type, I'd imagine they'd have to go back and re-type a lot of pokemon, no?

                              I see a bit of both.

                              And, not necessarily. They could re-type, or simply say that the new typing is unique to the new region due to climate/geography/mystical things.

                                Well only one of Kanto's was retyped, they could keep the others the same, even if they do have aspects which scream out "Love" or "Emotion" they don't necessary have to be changed, after all not all Dragon looking pokemon are dragon, and Eeletrik isn't part water despite it having a space available.

                                  I figured if any of the eeveelutions had fangs it would be umbreon. Which just makes me say ghost even more :p

                                  I do know what you mean about tying in the ghost type with the present types.

                                  I hope they don't drag this out for too long I am really curious!!

                                    Precisely.

                                    Now, what would it be weak/strong against?

                                    I'm gonna say:

                                    Weak to: Electric, Dark, and Psychic...Maybe Fighting.

                                    Why? Emotions can be altered via electroshock therapy. Malicious intentions screw up emotions, overthinking messes with emotions, and domestic abuse.

                                    Strong against: Normal, Dark, Psychic

                                    Why? Cuz "Normal" people/animals are affected by emotion, "Love" conquers all, and the heart wants what the heart wants.

                                    Meh, cliches all around, but it could work.

                                      I was thinking Love/Light to have a type advantage against Fighting, have a resistance to Fire, Fighting, and its own type, and have a type disadvantage from Dark, Poison, and Electric (was also thinking of adding Ice, but that'll give it too many weaknesses).

                                        Why resistant to Fire?

                                        I forgot resistances: Obviously resistant to itself, as well as resistant to Normal...that's all I can really see it resisting.
