Ghost type. Them creepy eyes, man.
As for why it can't be dragon, simple: It's not reptilian or serpentine. The word dragon comes from the greek "Drakon" which means "A serpent of huge size". The only non-reptilian or serpentine dragon-type we have so far is Altaria, which is based off some mythological chinese bird-dragon. And it's not that much of a stretch. Taken an obviously mammalian pokemon and saying it's dragon type is though.
Just because it doesn't look it doesn't mean it isn't.
You have absolutely no way of knowing Sylveon is mammalian, and I have no way of knowing it's draconic; that's why it's called speculation.
And the mammal factor applies not one bit, since your mammals apparently lay eggs in the Pokemon world.
Also, you know, the whole gameplay thing. That's probably the main reason for the eggs.
Anyways, my main point is GF wouldn't give something that is in no way, shape, or form draconic dragon-typing.
Oh, wow, a dragon with hair.
Nice, you're giving me one animal classed as a mammal that can lay eggs. And no, I don't want you to link more examples.
Also, it is a game, so they can do whatever they want with it; you don't know if they used the whole 'mammals & reptiles' etc to group Pokemon.
The 'case closed' line is kind of does not apply, dude, because you, as much as anyone else, is giving your own personal idea.
My point is you don't know what GF would do, becasue you're here, and not there.
And dragon-types, by definition, are based on dragons. This means they must be draconic in some way, shape, or form. Sylveon is not the least bit draconic.

Oh, now you want me to give you a link to a picture with a REAL dragon with hair. If only maned dragons was such a researched topic.
I said it before; just because it doesn't look like what one is used to seeing matters not one bit.
I'm just stating my opinion, and you're basically saying,'Errrmmm, no,no. You see, we have research on all these Metronome animals and stuff, so yeah.'
In any case, I can't really debate with you, because you're backing something which is proved to exist in the world, and I'm backing something which has nearly nothing to go on.
It's all still just views.
Come CoroCoro or whatever, and it'll be announced that Sylveon is a Water type; all we're doing is discussing.
Fighting type confirmed? Or is this just meant to be crazy?
I also think an pure eelctruc form could work if it was a lightbulb form giving rotom access to zap cannon or a new move entirely.(i'm aware this form probably wouln't be too popular)
And do you know for sure it has hair? As you said, Vaporeon doesn't have hair; and we've had no implication Sylveon has hair.
And based on your logic, Kingdra shouldn't be a Dragon. It's a fish, after all.
And Eeveelutions hardly learn moves outside their elemental type. And none of them can learn any Dragon type moves (bar Hidden Power), and I understand I'm comparing moves from the anime in my last post, but I must the only one who finds it weird that the move Sylveon used was the exact color of the Dragon type moves.

LOOKING FOR: Modest, 4/5 IV from Alpha Sapphire
PM me for offers!! PLEASE!!
Speculating on Sylveon's type really won't get us anywhere in this.
I'd still really like Ghost-typed Tailed Beast Pokémon. Dissimilar to that of Naruto lore, this line is a three-line family, with the first having three tails, the second six tails, and the last nine tails.
UMBReon: Dark (Umbra being a shadow cast by the moon)
SYLVeon: ??? (Sylph is a wind variety of a Nymph/spirit/fairy)
It's either Flying or this new Fairy type.
That just links to the accepted definition of Sylphs. And its not like the Japanese aren't familiar with them. Since Final Fantasy 3, Sylph has been a summon in one way or another;usually with the attack Whispering Wind and is designated as a Fairy or Air Elemental. This thing is Flying or Fairy (if there's no Fairy type introduced, its Flying). There's no way its Dragon. Like, at all.
I originally said it's obviously Flying given its name and everything, but with the introduction of the possibility of Fairy, that's also highly likely given the name and aesthetics of it. If Fairy type is real, then Sylveon is Fairy. If it's not real, then Sylveon is flying. Why there is still debate is because people are grasping at straws. I mean, you really have to be to see this thing as Steel or Dragon in any conceivable way.

Stop posting the stupid pokemon smash clip
she's wielding the "ribbons" like nunchucks as part of a series where grown men dress in eeveelution suits doing silly things
it means nothing
Hope corocoro brings at least a decent amount of new info. Region name, currently revealed pokemons typing, new pokemon, and perhaps the new rumored type fairy. Or rumored character customization confirmation.
What about other starters in the dex that are rare in the wild but findable? I would love to see that. We could get starters without trading.
