      Haven't posted in a while here! Well here I go...
      I'm going to explain my top 5 of possible types Sylveon could be, ENJOY:
      #5 Bug
      -It's Japanese name derived from Nymph, which is a small forest fairy.(Bugs live in forests).
      -It has ribbons that look like butterflies.
      -Its eyes are big and look a bit like the compound eyes.
      -Its longer ribbons can be stretched, on that way, it looks like String Shot.(Not from appearance, but from 'behaviour').

      #4 Flying
      -It is the lightest Eeveelution.
      -Its appearance is similair to Skyla's.
      -Its longer ribbons wave in the wind.

      #3 New type
      -It doesn't look like a familiar type.
      -Its type is such a secret.
      -Its name doesn't sound likr a familiar type.

      #2 Ghost
      -It us the lightest Eeveelution.
      -The eyes are so big and eerie.
      -Its longer ribbosn can stretch, so it may wrap its enemies with that and then...
      -Its cute appearance can deceive people and Pokémon, so Sylveon can attack without any problems.

      #1 Normal
      -Just like Jigglypuff, Skitty, Audino etc. , Sylveon is pink and has blue eyes.
      -Nimph is a forest-fairy, 'Fairy' is an egg group with lots of Normal types and some Pokemon like Clefairy and Snubbull are known as the 'Fairy species'.
      -This is the first type you think of at first glance.
      -It looks so plain.
      -It can be Normal with an unique abikity to change into types?

        After reading over that I guess it was pretty funny.

        @legendhunter14 Nice little compilation there.

          @legendhunter14- Those are all great reasons and I agree with all of them. I still think that Bug and Normal are the most plausible and realistic though.

            It being the lightest eevee evolution isn't a distinguishing quality. Its only 2.2 lbs lighter than Jolteon who used to be lightest and is the same size as Vaporeon which makes it larger than Jolteon, Flareon, Espeon, and Glaceon. You'd think with the "lightest" they'd have made it the smallest as well. All of them are really close weight wise but still if its weight is so vital to it being a certain type then so would its size.

            As for appearance, Skyla's color scheme is way too dark. Sylveon matches Yancy and Iris a lot more. It has the same shade of pink as Iris' clothes in B2W2 which is also covered in butterfly bows and lace ribbons. Yancy has pink ribbons and bows as well.

            As for eyes. Even though these are mor open, they match every eevee evolutions eye styles with exception to Umbreon.

            See what I did there? Nothing is obvious, we just have our reasons why it's obvious to us. And many of us will be wrong.

            I've never seen it floating. Its firmly planted to the ground in the battle vids an it was shown sitting in the anime trailer. So far it has shown no ability to levitate or fly.

              At this point, all the types seem equally likely-unlikely imo. I just don't like how you can't tell what it is by looking at it like the other Eeveelutions, but if they pull it off well I'll be happy.

                I do think Sylveon will be a new type.

                Because, why do Nintendo have to hide it's type if it wasn't new? It's not April Fools Also it's color Scheme is waaaaay different than the other mons. If it's not a new type it'll probably be a normal one or a flying as my guess.

                  We do not know the new legendary types, either.

                  Though it would be interesting if it's a new type under the same theory. There would have to be a subtype, however.

                    Well of course Yveltal will be part flying in my opinion and from the looks of Xerneas it seems like it's a Psychic Type mon. :3

                    I do hope they release the typings soon :3

                      Thanks C Payne and Rai!

                      That Sylveon's and the legendaries' types aren't revealed yet doesn't mean it is a new type.
                      Back before the releases of B&W, Reshiram's and Zekrom's were also kept a secret. And look, no new type.
                      But of course, it could be a possibility for Sylveon to get a new type.

                        Those ribbons remind me of Drifblim, that's one of the reasons why Ghost or Flying are 3rd in my list of speculation along with its weight/eyes/...
                        The problem is that it is a little too cute and "physical/tangible" to be Ghost, and its lack of flying properties is big... Not to mention that if it turns out to be one of the actually existing types, it will the 1st Eeveelution to not has a color that matches its type (unless if it is Normal....). That's why I am thinking it has more chances to be new type'd or Normal type'd...
                        Ugh... Damn it GF. Why you no make it more obvious.

                          in one of the scans, sylveon's the only one shown to have fangs. idk if it means something but if it were to, then maybe it's a hint to it being bug-type? still tho, it's hard to tell..

                          To create fan speculation and craze, like it's been successfully doing for the past month or two or so. Essentially, Gamefreak is doing this for trolling reasons, and hiding it for so long just seemed like a fun thing to do at the time, so they decided to do it and watch as all the fans speculated about the type. And they sat back and laughed.

                          Trust me, they're humans like the rest of us, they like to pull our legs on this quite often.

                            Nope. Umbreon has fangs as well. Its assumed all pokemon with mouthes have teeth or fangs as they've been shown with some at some point and based on ways they eat. But on the eevee thing Umbreon was shown with fangs in the pmd trailers. Fangs were the leading point for the Dragon type speculation as well.

                              not that the other pokemon dont have fangs, but maybe there's a reason that in the scan, only sylveon's are shown. but everything's speculation. just thought id bring something new (or at least newer) :) you may or are right

                                  I actually joined to post this because no one else had... Sylveon looks like a vampire to me. What type that would be is anyone's guess, but I wouldn't be surprised if it's a ghost-type.

                                  I don't know about the rest of the world, but the western world strongly associates vampires with the "widow's peak," which Sylveon has. If you just Google "vampire clipart," they ALL have it. (Sylveon also has fangs and its eyes look a little odd to me.)

                                      I think Sylveon might be a flying type. Its ribbons remind me of a kite.

                                        I honestly have to lean toward Flying for this one. Besides just the bows, the ribbons themselves look very airy to me, as well as a lot about the design. I was always expecting that a Flying-type eevee would have wings, though.

                                        I feel that it wouldn't be Normal, mostly because of all the hype being built up around the Pokemon, and that Normal is so... boring.

                                        And I'm definitely praying for no new types. I think I'll shoot myself before fighting literally with the power of love.

                                        There is nothing to indicate that it's a flying type, really all the evidence I have seen so far point to Ghost, Normal and Dragon types. With Dragon and Normal being equally the most likely in my eyes at this point.

                                        Dragon
                                        Colours resembling the Gen III button for the dragon type fit the "pattern" of eeveelutions having colours matching/related to their type.
                                        Dragon was a "special type" prior to Gen III as were the types of the other eeveelutions. (the strongest argument of any so far if you ask me)
                                        Fangs have been shown.

                                        Normal
                                        Pink is a colour commonly associated with both Psychic and Normal but there is already a psychic eeveelution.
                                        Cute appearance.
                                        Ribbons/Bow which are usually associated with the normal type.
                                        Only shown using moves Eevee learns (probably due to worry about revealing its type accidentally though).

                                        Ghost
                                        Lightest Eeveelution - Ghosts are usually very light.
                                        Lifeless eyes
                                        expanding/contracting ribbons which have a sort of eerie weightlessness too them.

                                        I'll probably give more later.

                                          Also another point to my Normal type speculation;
                                          A held-item introduced in the 2nd Generation called the Pink Bow boosts Normal type moves. Sylveon has Pink Bows.

                                            Good reasons are being given, but I just can't see it being Normal in type. I give it the longest odds.

                                              i don't know why some people so sure sylveon is a flying type
                                              exept it feel airy or flying type there is no serious evidence

                                              of course nothing sure and it may end being a flying type, but right while we are just guessing i don't see nothing pointing sylveon will be a flymg type

                                              hope you don't take personally, just seems weird to me
