I know it is one pokemon, but it is just mind boggling! (Please don't say Normal type, I'll freak out :P)
As for the purple stone as a Fairy Gym (someone else said) I have this hunch it is a Psychic type one :P I don't know why- just random. It could be Fairy though.
And Sylveon is probably a Ghost, not fairy. I find it hard to believe that they would introduce a new type and apply it to an Eeveelution before other current types had been tried. And the stars produced by Sylveon are part of the Confuse Ray attack.
Of course it is. It's clearly either Ghost or Flying. I will retype the definition of a "sylph" (which I did several weeks ago on the Dex forum). "Sylph (also called sylphid) is a mythological creature in the Western tradition. The term originates in Paracelsus, who describes sylphs as invisible beings of the air, his elementals of air." (This is from Wikipedia, but Wiki haters are welcome to Google a different definition). Sylveon is either Ghost or Flying.
Not to sound a d*ck, but you sound a little bit in denial man :P
It looks like the Purple stone building comes straight out of the water- I can't see any bridge- do you think you have to be levitated there?
Because of their association with the ballet La Sylphide, where sylphs are identified with fairies and the medieval legends of fairyland, as well as a confusion with other "airy spirits" (e.g., in William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream), a slender girl may be referred to as a sylph.
Sylph has passed into general language as a term for minor spirits, elementals, or faeries of the air. Fantasy authors will sometimes employ sylphs in their fiction. Sylphs could create giant artistic clouds in the skies with their airy wings.
Quite unmissable. Also I would try looking into the name origins for all of slyveon's names.
On topic of region, I have a feeling that Carnac may be where we get a proper introduction to fairy types.

In any case sylphs are WIND SPIRITS. Since I do not believe in the Fairy nonsense spirit would be taken as Ghost. Clearly it's not a very scary ghost but neither was, say, Frillish. And your levitation comment also supports ghosts, although I do believe it's a Psychic gym. Wind spirit=Flying/Ghost.
I know exactly what a sylph is, I was one of the first to bring the meaning here to this thread. And I was a strong defender of the Flying-type for it, but I'm not sure anymore.
But of course, I don't have the privileged info you seem to have.

Glaceon and Leafeon in gen 4 had not all this attention.. We discovered of their existence when the games were out.. There's never be a single eeveelution introduced in a new generation (sylveon is probably the only one, if there's another why not to put it in its "family" short movie?), there's never be a eeveeloution whose appearance or name cannot be easly traced to its particular type. There's never been so much mystery about an eeveelution in general. If GF is keeping secret its type for so long and dedicating it a short movie this probably mean Sylveon is a new type. And if this is the case Fairy is That type (because of the rumours, the leaks, the pink, the sylph etc.)
I thought Flying for a while- I was convinced, I tried to stretch out its other language names to fit, but Fairy explained so much more :P
Oh, I think that Fairy types will appear strangely- like maybe only in certain areas at certain times of day- making them reasonably hard to find compared to other types through the region.
As a matter of fact, I never really liked the idea of new types (anyone who has seen my posts here in the past few months knows that), so, if I'm defending that I think it will happen, it's not because I like or want it to happen, it's simply because I do think this time the evidence points to a new type being introduced. I'm not a big supporter at all, but I do think we'll end up getting one.

What is it that I treat as fact? I stated that Sylveon had to be either Ghost or Flying. It is not reasonable to think of it as a type such as Rock. Therefore I judged it to be one of those two types (my guess Ghost) based on the current information we have stating that there are 17 types and Fairy is not one of them. If anything the people claiming Fairy typing to be a fact are the arrogant ones seeing as their information is based on unproven rumors.
's type unless it was something ground breaking ( like a new type)

I feel like I should remind people as well that the guy who predicted Fairy-type (well, one of them) did also correctly guess the English names of three of the four newly revealed Pokemon (with "Panchum" being an obvious typo/mishearing/misreading/whatever), as well as the idea behind Parabolic Charge.
So, y'know, precedence and trustworthiness and reliability and whatnot.
