Correction, Dragon is only super-effective against itself. But I wouldn't be surprised if Fairy has a type advantage against itself either, but I'm hoping that we don't get disappointed when the matchups for the Fairy-type get revealed in the next CoroCoro.

We already know the strong against Dragon part, but also the Fire being resistant part. Fairy is also neutral damage on Water and Electric, and maybe you can count Psychic and Grass in there too since I saw a video yesterday and Sylveon's Fairy Wind did neutral damage to an Exeggutor.

I remember someone rumored Fairy being resisted by Psychic once, so you could say that's been debunked.

    Just thought I'd let everyone know this. In the Pokemon Super Training, they have a hexagon which shows you what your Pokemons base stats are The green hexagon in the middle is the base stats.
    e.g.

    In the latest Pokemon Smash, we get a look at Sylveon's base stats! If the green hexagon really IS the base stats, then Sylveons stats are:
    Hp : 95
    Sp. Atk : 110
    Sp. Def : 130
    Here's the video for reference : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9rCLd7YX9Ow

    Also I'd just like to say, I totally nailed it :')

      Sorry about that, I worded it wrong. I meant to say that since Ice and Fairy have now been taken as Eevelutions that should they ever make a Dragon eevelution it should be by itself to keep with the old theme of the eeveelution being weak to another (in this term itself as Dragon is also weak against Dragon). Though I guess that wouldn't quite fit anymore if Fairy isn't weak against itself...

      Wow, I sure hope that SPA stat is right as it'll be a nice special tank and attacker :3

        I really hope that Sylveon isn't the only Eeveelution we get this generation. And I really don't think it will be. I'm pretty sure that they only rolled out Sylveon early in order to serve as some sort of mascot for the new Fairy type.

        Since traditionally Eeveelutions have come out in pairs with a weak-strong relationship (Espeon (Psychic) vs. Umbreon (Dark); Leafeon (Grass) vs. Glaceon (Ice)), I think they're gonna probably reveal a Dragon-type Eeveelution alongside Sylveon. Or perhaps a Poison or Steel type Eeveelution if the rumors of Fairy's weaknesses are true.

          Also to add on this, every Eeveelution so far has been a 'special' type, dragon being the only 'special' type not having an eeveelution so yeah.

          I still have hope that next weeks CoroCoro will feature a new dragon eeveelution. Oh god please happen :(

            The pokemon series is likely going to continue on for a loooong time. The reason why I don't think they will have another eeveelution in XY is because Gamefreak might want to save it as exciting news for the next generation. See how hyped and happy we were to see Sylveon? If Gamefreak rushed to include 2 eeveelutions per generation, they'd be depleting their fan fuel too quickly. I think of this as the same reason why they take their slow time releasing new type combinations.

              Well Sylveon being a new type which made it hard to guess what type it was (as it was none of the ones we knew of at the time of speculation) added to the hype. I feel any eeveelution after won't reach it's levels, no matter if it's another one in this generation or several in other generations...unless they make more new type eeveelutions...

                Then why have they continued in the pattern of releasing two for every other generation for so long? Eevee only has eight evolutions so far, while there are 18 types. That's ten additional types. So if they continue in this pattern, and release a second Eeveelution, which is either weak or strong against Fairy-type, there'd still be nine more types.

                Doing the math, they could make four pairs out of those types, which would then be spread out over eight additional generations. So, we're talking about maintaining that pattern until Generation 14. And then they'd probably create another type in that time that would be used to create the last pair, which would then debut in Generation 16. So, assuming they release a generation every 3 years, then that'd mean maintaining the Eevee hype for an additional 24-30 years or more. That seems like a long time to me.

                  Goodness most of us will in our late forties, fifties, if not sixties at the current rate of eeveelution release...Also it'll be generation 24 as they tend to skip a generation...I hope we get another triad in the future...

                  For everyone saying that it's a pattern for new Eeveelutions to be revealed in pairs, I'd just like to point out that, that has only happened twice. Once in Gen II and again in Gen IV. Something happening twice in a similar fashion doesn't make it a pattern, it just makes it a coincidence. Now if it happened three times or four, then maybe we have a pattern. But two? That's too soon to tell.

                  I personally don't think we'll be getting a second Eeveelution this generation, not saying it can't happen or that it won't, I just don't have my hopes up for it. It won't be too long before we know for certain though!

                      I guess that we should say that Sylveon lost all its charm once it was confirmed to have Cute Charm ability... What are your hopes/bets for its Hidden Ability?

                        Sorry if this doesn't belong in this thread, but would Sylveon have type differences?

                        If not, I feel so sorry for male Eevees.

                          hmm now that I think about it....gamefreak always releases a pair of eveelutions. not saying they may continue that pattern this gen but if they do than.....it will have to be a steeleon or poiseon I think(becuase those two types hurt fairy)

                            To be honest, I have mixed feelings about Sylveon. Don't get me wrong, it's awesome that we get another Eeveelution but it's overall design is a bit too... girlish to me.

                            Still I'm eager to see what kind of stat's it'll have in the end and try it out.

                            Also I'm hoping that we'd get another Eeveelution. It's not just because "they have been released in pairs earlier" but because I've always wanted to have Dragon/Poison/Steel-typed Eeveelution. Also, as Fairy is quite a powerful it would be a great way to kind of balance the whole Eeveelution chart a bit atleast.

                            I know that only Sylveon was shown in that Pikachu Short Movie but if you think about it, it won't be impossible to get another Eeveelution. We was shown for example only Mewtwo Y in the new movie and still we got Mewtwo X too so it could happen. Anyhow, I'm still satisfied if we only get Sylveon - though I hope I can find a shiny Eevee so I get Sylveon as blue coloured. :D

                              I have been speculating a lot about this. And unless I missed some update saying how, what will the new way to evolve Eevee be? Or, will it be an old way? What are your thoughts on this?

                              My best guess right now would be an item-evolution. Probably not, but it's the best I can think of. -_-

                                Well there are those things about turning for 3DS upside down for Inkay to evolve and having a dark pokemon in your party to evolve Pancham. It could be something like that, I suppose! There's a lot of evolution methods they could try out.

                                Someone already tried playing with Eevee in Pokemon Amie by petting it and stuffing it with cupcakes, but that seemed to have only helped its happiness. I'm curious how it evolves a lot since I want one on my first playthrough. >.>

                                  Neither of those have been confirmed by any leaker as far as I've seen, but one leaker said that Eevee evolves into Sylveon through the Pokemon Amie.

                                  I remember when we were discussing possible evolution methods for Eevee to evolve into Sylveon and one of the possible methods mentioned was Pokemon Amie, so yeah bit surprised that appears to be the evolution method. It's different from the happiness required for Eevee's evolution Espeon and Umbreon.

                                  I would love to evolve an Eevee into Sylveon as soon as I get ahold of one, that's for sure <3 and if it's the Amie that evolves Eevee into Sylveon, I'll probably hold off for a while anyways just to avoid cuteness overload xD

                                  Well, Sylveon was shown acting really cute in the Pokemon Amie footage in the trailers already so I see what you did there. But if this will be the evolution method, maybe I might try and use it a lot.
