    Like I said, there's doubt. It doesn't look like it 100% fits into one type. All the other Eeveelutions look 100% like their type. Sylveon doesn't look like an obvious flying type (an obvious flying type would have wings).

    Oh, and why would they keep the type so secret for just a type that we already have?

      Still, 3 months for it to be Normal or Flying is a bit excessive XD

        That'll be horrible, but I guess it could be. I'm still hoping it's Dragon.

              I'd like to see Sylveon be a bug type. It has big, beady eyes, and although otherwise its design is nothing like a bug type, its name origin comes from bug-like pixies. Also, in a trailer featuring it in the upcoming Pokemon movie, there was a quick scene showing Sylveon in a grassy field, which is often associated with grass or bug types. Maybe just some wishful thinking here, though.

                After a connection made with a newly released image linked to Bug type being plausible - plus something I found in another forum from February - I firmly think it's Bug type now. I can't claim it as my first guess, unfortunately.

                  Pixies have never been associated with insects owo

                  Quote:
                  Pixies (also Pixy, Pixi, Pizkie, Piskies and Pigsies as they are sometimes known in Cornwall) are mythical creatures of folklore, considered to be particularly concentrated in the high moorland areas around Devon[1] and Cornwall,[2] suggesting some Celtic origin for the belief and name. Akin to the Irish and Scottish sidhe, pixies are believed to inhabit ancient underground ancestor sites such as stone circles, barrows, quoits, rounds or standing stones.[3] In traditional regional lore, they are generally benign, mischievous, short of stature and attractively childlike; they are fond of dancing and gather outdoors in huge numbers to dance, or sometimes wrestle, through the night, demonstrating parallels with the Cornish plen-an-gwary and Breton Fest Noz (Cornish: troyl) folk celebrations originating in the medieval period. In modern times they are usually depicted with pointed ears, and often wearing a green outfit and pointed hat. Sometimes their eyes are described as being pointed upwards at the temple ends. These, however, are Victorian Era conventions and not part of the older mythology.
                  In modern use, the term can be synonymous with fairies or sprites. However, in folklore there is a traditional enmity, and even war between the two races.[4]
                  Sylveon also has the exact same eye design as all of the eevee evolutions, except Umbreon who has completely different eyes, with it being opened wider than the others. Its eyes looks exactly the same as the others and the others aren't bugs so I do not see any connection...

                  Also Fairies, Pixies are humanoid mostly wingless creatures. Only since Disney's twisted view did they get bug like wings. Traditional fairies and pixes don't have anything to do with bugs.

                    Well we got to remember that anime and other Japanese media was inspired by Disney...just look at Celebi having almost bug like wings. speaking of Celebi, it's based on a fairy yet doesn't have bug the same could be said about Sylveon.

                      It honestly looks like a normal type to me.
                      Being cute pink and all that (just like those cute Chansey/Cleffa/etc. pokémon).
                      But that would defeat the purpose of keeping Eevee.
                      I don't see anyone wings on that pokémon so I don't get how it could be flying either; then again Rayquaza didn't have any either.
                      So....

                        Eeveelutions have always obviously resembled their type. Sylveon being the only one there's any doubt about. A flying Eeveelution would have wings and/or clouds. A bug Eeveelution would have bug-eyes and a green tinted body. Normal type would look like Eevee and probably be named Eeveeon. A fighting Eeveelution would have a bulky looking body and be brown or blue. A dragon Eeveelution would have scales and large fangs. Sylveon has none of these things. Just tiny fangs and ribbons.

                          Well Ribbons have been used in martial arts so it can be fighting, also it's color scheme matches the dragon tag of gen 3, etc. So it could really be a lot of things.

                            because gamefreak keep sylveon's type as a secret for so long and that it not fit any type(unlike the other eeveelutions) i think it will be a new type.

                            I guess Branellope has a pretty good point there, as it's true you can tell almost every eeveelutions' type by just looking at it for 2 seconds. Which brings the following question: Did Nintendo design Sylveon the way they did to create all this hype and speculation about its type? (Which has worked more than well) Or does this mean there will be a new type we haven't seen yet, and that's why Sylveon doesn't seem to fit a type we would recognize?

                              But that's a small aspect. Ribbons on a pink quadruped doesn't sound like a fighting type to me. And again, it's a small part and there's still doubt.

                              Of course. Although I was talking to Serebii, using my clever wording to niggle some info out of him (he's good, he'd do well under torture) and he brought up the fact that Azurill's type was never revealed until release despite being revealed a year before RS, causing speculation. I have to say Azurill's type was a nice and odd surprise XD.
                              Now, he also said we'd likely learn Sylveon's type fairly soon. Another thing is that he didn't really comment on the Fairy type rumours (a while before this he said he knew more about XY than we did). This tells me Game Freak wanted to cause speculation before surprising everyone with a new type.

Which brings the following question: Did Nintendo design Sylveon the way they did to create all this hype and speculation about its type? (Which has worked more than well) Or does this mean there will be a new type we haven't seen yet, and that's why Sylveon doesn't seem to fit a type we would recognize?
                              It's a natural human trait that can be applied to absolutely everything. We feel the need to fit everything into something we're familiar with. Alternative bands have been classified as a different genre, and people finding parts of Sylveon that they can explain and ignoring everything else.

                                I wonder how can an Eevee evolve to Sylveon. By the looks of it... there should be a new evolution stone and a specific requirement within Eevee itself.

                                  There's a new friendship mechanic. Maybe it's something to do with that.

                                  Game Freak/Nintendo has talked about a new feature called the "bonding system" though nothing really is known about that its possible it might affect evolution and may be how Eevee evolves into Sylveon.

                                    Yeah, and apparently it's another factor in terms of increasing stats.

                                    Oh wow, i honestly haven't heard about it until just now.
                                    Sounds pretty interesting, I wonder if it will be replacing the old friendship system or will just be included as a new gameplay mechanic. Either way, i guess it's pretty likely it will be how Eevee evolves into Sylveon!

                                      If it's a replacement for the old system with new additions then it's evolution method will probably be something else as it'll get in the way of Espeon and/or Umbreon evolving if it too is based on happiness/friendship.

                                        isn't the bond system just one of mr.xy's fake rumers?
                                        if wrong can you please show me an article or something else about it?

                                          No the bonding thing is from the original english trailer where the narrator says you can create bonds to strengthen your Pokemon. Mr. XY's was an item called the Bond Eye that was supposed to do some strange things.

                                          I don't see Bond system replacing the friendship system because of how many Pokemon evolve by friendship and the fact that the bond is supposed to increase stats based on what the narrator says. With that I don't see it playing a part in Sylveon's evolution either. I'm going to guess its a new item native to the new region.
