    I don't think its a coincidence they are doing a direct just before corocoro's release this month. They will probably gives us the English name of Ninfia and some gameplay footage. I think that's about it.
    Is this worldwide or only in US ? If its not in Japan, then we can assume that the news will be about Ninfia and nothing else.

    Yeah that's what I'm expecting.
    I'm also REALLY HOPING they can put an end to some rumored like character customization, a simple yes or no.

    Its world wide m just like the one that released x and y


    Its also on 3ds games, not just Pokemon x and y
    So I'm not expecting much.

    Okay, so Ninfia is now called Sylveon. That pretty much cements the idea of it being a Flying-type in my mind

    EDIT: And as you guys can now see, my mind uses very weak cement.

    why flying type? the prefix syl means togetherness or a fusion. i feel like this almost confirms a normal type evolution to represent all the others as well.

    SO official ENglish name has just been revealed, Ninfia is now Sylveon!

    I can see the root in Sylph in there. A Sylph is a wind Sprite. It has to Flying!

    It reminds me of "sylph," but you make a good point too.

    Same. Most likely Sylveon is going to be a Flying type in my opinion. Looked like that to me in the first place.

    Yea, you do have a good point Sunnyshore, but togetherness can also represent the sky, as everything that's in the air is together, and a fusion between all of the different gases that make up the air we breath, so that narrows it down to Normal and Flying.

    I don't think it's a Flying type, there's nothing that suggests that.

    I think it's Normal type.

    "sylvan" roughly means "from the woods", "associated with the woods/forest". So it's likely a Bug type.

    Sylphs are mythical air elementals; I think the Sylph Co. is named after them. Either way, after factoring in what you said, I'd say that there's now a 50/50 chance of it being either a Normal-type or a Flying-type.

    Indeed. I'm still googling 'sylv' and trying to decipher it.
    Clauncher, Vivillon, Chespin... Here it comes!

    Maybe it is indeed a Normal type and it's the strongest Eeveelution.

    Except the fact it's clearly the only new Eevee, and the promo stuff for it suggest a leader and a togetherness of Eevees.

    I bet it's normal. If it's flying, I'll stop posting for awhile.

    Everytime I look up the word "sylv" I get definitions pertaining to trees or forests. Hmm this is confusing. :/

    According to Wikipedia (and Final Fantasy; if you play the older FFs you know all Sylph like monsters (as well as the summon) are wind elements)
    Sylph (Sylphid)
    Creature
    Grouping Mythological
    Sub grouping Air spirit, Elementa

    So why not Sylpheon? Why Sylveon?

    It doesn't have to be that way.

    Yeah and Wikipedia also says "Sylphs are winged air elements or fairies. They ride the wind, flying high with eagles, Sylphs are female and are almost transparent. They're slender and graceful, with large glistening eyes." I'm almost positive Sylveon is Flying now.

    Well, all eeveelutions were created to be balanced in some way. Vaporeon has excellent HP and SPecial side, but it's Physical side and speed counter-balance it. Jolteon's fast and frail, and so forth. So Sylveon still will be balanced.

    Anyways it's more than likely a Flying-type. This eliminates fighting from it's original speculated types, and that's a good thing.

    @Janovy, as Slypheon would be way to obvious.

    I didn't discount that possibility; I'd be perfectly happy with a Normal-type "true" Eeveelution.

    The way the attacks is performed and the way the opponent gets damaged in the trailer for Sylfeon is amazing!!!!! Cant wait for the other trailers to get released!


    btw some of the attacks looks new to me :L

    A little disappointed in Sylveon, I was really hoping for a dragon or poison type eeveelution. Or at least something better than the last two :/ It is rather adorable though.

    I don't know where the heck you people are getting flying and bug from o_O just look at its design! It's clearly a normal type. It has bows and ribbons and is similar in design choices to other 'cute' normal types such as skitty/delicatty. Why would it be a flying type? How would it fly, exactly? It has no wings, and I'm not expecting it to have rocket boots like golurk. Not to mention, the prefix in its name is sylv- NOT sylph-
