I'd also be happy to receive very little information, it would make the games more enjoyable once they're released. Although I do agree with the above about the most information circulating around the summer.

One thing that I'd like to see is a skippable tutorial/intro. Just give me my starter Pokemon, five Pokeballs, and Pokedex and let me start playing.

Well said.

This has actually been brought up before and I know a lot of people here, myself included, would prefer having the basic tutorials be made optional. I don't think fans that have been playing the games for 15+ years now needs to go through the same basic concept at the beginning of each new game every time.

Or like some people said, just give us the Teachy TV again. That was fun.

Seriously, you need to learn how to catch Pokémon again. The button you push is different, we must teach you which buttons to push!

Yes, that is the single thing I'd like to knock out, also. Make tutorials optional.

I really don't even pay attention to the tutorials anymore, sadly. I actually forget that they exist by this point, that's how oblivious I am to them. :x

The symbol that Sylveon appears in reminds me of a feather (the bottom part, specifically), but I guess it's still not too specific yet. It's still cool to see how Sylveon attacks with its ribbons!

It also does that room attack I don't know if that's an anime exclusive power or if its one of the various room attacks. Though it kinda beats the point of it being flying type and gives it a more mystical air.

There's going to be a heck of a lot more speculation about a new-type, especially since that screenshot you provided, Xander, basically hardly helped at all. xD My only real guess is just Dragon at this point, but I thought GF was already getting tired of the type speculation and was beginning to unveil (if not, getting close to) it's typing already.

If it's a new type, let's hope it's something sensible and something that won't stick out like a sore thumb. And something that's actually needed.

Well they have the part where Sylveon warps the space around them into that crystal looking background where Vaporeon and Glaceon do a combination attack for something. That could be a hint to her type though its not a very solid thing. Some people are saying Astral type.

I hope not unless they change Palkia to Astral/Dragon...I doubt it though. Could it be trick room? Or maybe a new room move?

They don't have to change any previous Pokemon if a new type is introduced. It can be new Pokemon onward only.

I thought it was a room move too but it doesn't really match any.

I don't really think it's a move at all. Maybe it's just using some internal psychic ability of some sort? Latias didn't use a move when it projected through Latios' eyes (at least, it's not a KNOWN move, it's just shared telepathy, I believe). So in this case, I believe it's the same thing if not similar.

They are also Legendary Pokemon. Legendary Pokemon always break all the rules. They also introduced an ability called Telepathy in Gen 5. Gardevoir was able to do something like that but that's part of their powers. We know nothing about Sylveon so assuming its a power is the same as assuming its an attack. Neither of us are right and neither of us are wrong.

Yup, and you can check it out here. Right below my post Xander also posts a screenshot from the trailer showing each Eeveelution inside their own sort of badge that represents their type. Naturally, Sylveon's makes no sense.

And thats kind of an unfortunate thing. You'd normally expect "hey, GF should finally reveal something obvious about it's type at this point!". So far, we've dissected the name, the design, color, ribbons, just about everything we can think of (and next is that badge) and still hardly anything. D:

Though it at least probably helps that Normal is eliminated. Seems I was wrong from that, haha. Something tells me it's really not Normal, but rather just Flying or Dragon or something like that, really. .___. Either way, it shouldn't have to be so ambiguous.

I haven't come across this until now, interesting the way all of the frames represent their typing and then Sylveon is unknown. Could it just be a placeholder until we are made aware of it's typing? or could it be a whole new type?

At this point, I wouldn't even care if it's a new type anymore. As long as it makes sense. xD

I'm still more leaning toward Flying type, but that egg Sylveon's in could indicate just about anything so a new type is also becoming more likely at this point and more acceptable for me.

In other words, a space type? Well we've already have Clefairy line, Lunatone, Solrock, Jirachi, Deoxys, Palkia, and Elgyem line as perfect candidates for this type, and GF has been breaking tradition lately, so the theory of previous Pokemon not getting a new type on its introduction could be broken as well.

Well the colour pink represented the poison type in Mystery Dungeon. Of course that means nothing really.

:( That's so boring though. Don't you enjoy the creativity of early on telling you of why you need to go on this huge journey? Some ~reason~ to go on your journey??

Not to mention seeing the backside of an NPC which may be the only time to see it in-game like the old man in Gen 1 and Professor Juniper in Gen 5.

I can see a Space/Celestial/Cosmic type. Why not? I think it might be cool and it would make sense. Id actually like to see it happen.

I do think Sylveon might be a new type still and I think that even more now.

Off-topic: I've always wished, though, that the legendaries could breed…but that's only because I want to get them without having the other person who gave them to me lose their copies. It probably won't ever happen…oh, well.

They might show something off at E3, too; after all, it is the big annual gaming conference. If not, maybe a Nintendo Direct will come out at about the same time or something.
