    Thoughts?
    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.

        I honestly think we're really not going to find out much about the type anytime soon, and we'll keep being trolled by GF, for as long as they feel like this kind of stuff is entertaining, otherwise when it gets boring, they'll reveal the type and the majority of Pokemon fans would slap themselves and be like "ugh I KNEW THAT". :(

          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.

                          Fire is usually associated with love; that's I gave it a Fire resistance.

                            I'm actually happy with Sylveon now, if it ends up being Flying typing. It's ears. they are a bit wing-like so that would work. I know not all Flying types have wings but you'd expect an Eevee to adapt some, grow from its back.

                            I would prefer it to be Dragon though, it'd somehow explain the bows.

                            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 have to admit I too considered it being a new type, although in my case I was thinking the often speculated Light type. However, the idea of the love type sounds nice. A lot of the moves could have a chance to infatuate the Pokemon too. Having said that, I don't know, the Love type seems a bit too out there if you get what I mean. It kinda crosses into many different mechanics and elements (e.g.: Pokemon happiness) that I don't know if it could survive as a standalone type. Still an interesting theory.

                            Personally, when I first saw it my gut instinct was Normal. It just screams normal through the colouring and design (having a cute-sy look to it.) However, I must admit from what I've read I'm being to doubt myself. I think Flying and Ghost both seem quite likely also. I just have no idea haha.

                            Also, guys, what about evolution? I know, I know. It's type hasn't been introduced yet. But do you think, based upon its design, it'll maybe be a female-exclusive Eeveelution? And, following on from this, we know they like to release pairs of Eeveelutions. Do you think a more masculine Eeveelution is around the corner? :o Just something that's been on my mind.

                            "Love type".

                            No. Just...please, no.

                            Love type is very interesting! Perhaps rather than being a love-type it evolves through a heart scale, so to tie in with the Valentines thing? (Though that find is v interesting that it's on V-Day!)

                            It's crazy that more people support and show interest in a Love type than a Light type... I'm certain that whatever way it goes I'll be disappointed with it's design and concept. It just doesn't look like anything and doesn't fit in with the other Eeveelutions with that awkward head and huge eyes.

Also, you forgot Aeroblast, Air Cutter, Air Slash, Defog, and Tailwind.
                              I said those were the ones I could Pull from memory. I also highly doubt the punch relation as few "Punching" attacks are Normal as well. As for the ones you listed, Aeroblast is a breath attack that is a Signature move for Lugia. Air Cutter isn't a wind based attack, but rather a forced shock wave that cuts through the air. Same with Air Slash. Tailwind is a Wind based attack for support. Ominous Wind and Silver Wind are also variations of Ancient Power so their relation isn't even that close to other Wind based attacks.

                              Sorry, but no love-type for me. :( Just not something I would feel comfortable with. ;O; Light-type maybe, but no love. Just because it's pink doesn't always mean love(along with other things, that is).

                              The idea of a new love or emotion type... I've made up my mind that's what I think it is. The new friendship system, all the facts in that little box.. it just seems too perfect not to be true. I'm probably really wrong and it's actually steel type or something, but whatever.

                              But also, with all the eeveelutions so far, one could easily tell what type they were. With Sylveon, this seems less the case... but if it were Love type, then that WOULD be the case.

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.
                              Eeveelutions aren't entirely like other Pokemon, design-wise, though. All of them so far have been closely related, look wise, to the type they represent. Earthy doesn't have to mean plants either, we're talking...I guess you can say dirty, as in you know, being associated more with dirt?(this is not implying I agree with it being a Ground type, I still highly doubt that) I'd sooner believe it's a new type(that's possibly weak to/strong against Electric types) than the Ground type.

                              If it weren't for the typing 'circle' that was brought up, we probably wouldn't have a real clue as to what it could be. We've all come up with how it could look like a Flying type, a Ghost, a Normal type, or a Female version of it's type(whatever that is) among other suggestions.

                              Who's to say that GF isn't having a little fun with us as well? How would we all feel if they made other reveals to sway us away from what it really is(if it isn't a new type) and then 'BAM!'...it turns out to be what we figured before? Pretty crazy but more than likely would have a good laugh still because it would be what we had thought all along. Surprises can work like that you know. Who knows, maybe they figured its look could mean different things and wanted to see what we think it looks like before officially revealing it.


                              EDIT: With all of this 'Love' type talk, maybe two previous Pokemon who could switch over/add it on would be Luvdisc and Alomomola?

                                In terms of types....is it possible that they might split Flying into:

                                Flying and Wind types? I think there's a fakemon website where some of the fakemon they create have the wind type. (Pokefactory) The Wind type fakemon are able to manipulate wind but they can't fly (at least not traditionally with wings) or use bird-like moves.

                                I'm sorry, but unless Game Freak announce a new type, I just can't see it happening. I think Sylveon will be Bug, Dragon or Flying type.
