    This supports it if we take Ninfia and make it Nymph (Greek female deity thingy) .. What do you guys think?
    This seems to hold some merit only because I've seen in a new eeveelution poster thing that now there is an orange "hidden character/letter" along with the pink (bow) one that was revealed to be Sylveon.

    I think the moves it used are:
    -Superpower
    -Trump Card
    -Aura Sphere
    -Swift

    Yeah, I'm rooting for fighting type.

    there's two reasons its being kept secret. 1) its a normal type to represent all eeveelutions or 2) its flying type and its supposed to surprise us when it jumps up and flies around

    so yeah, surely one or the other. i'd just PREFER normal type, but eh!

    Is anyone expecting something in this direct ? I expected at least game footage. After all, x/y must be the most anticipated games or the 3ds this year.

    Maybe Sylveon can learn elemental attacks that the other eevelutions can learn like Thunderbolt and Flamethrower,or Leaf Blade etc.

    Maybe as Normal type, but it shouldn't be able to learn those as Flying type.

    I'm not expecting anything Pokémon-related, but I'm watching it anyway on the off-chance that there is something.

    I don't want Sylveon to be a Normal type because it seems definitive that there would be no more Eeveelutions IMO. But then again, I doubt there will be all 17 types of Eeveelutions anyway.

    Sylveon, eh? The prefix 'syl-' means 'together', and Sylveon's German name 'Feelinara' is derived from 'fee', meaning 'fairy'.

    I also think the first attack it used looked more like a Fire-type attack than something like Superpower. Perhaps it's a Normal type (bows and ribbons pointing to an Eevee that evolves in a domesticated environment perhaps?) that represents all Eeveelutions and can use different types of attacks?

    edit: basically what sunyshore.com said

    Sylveon? Nice. Like a common woman's name Sylvia. It's got to be a female only Pokemon or the discussion of gender-confused Pokemon is gonna escalate this year

    Its always felt like a flying type or normal type to me, and with eevee being a normal type already, I'm saying Sylveon is flying type. Plus I've always thought a new normal eeveelution would end up looking a lot more like a grown up eevee than what we've got with Sylveon...

    Based on the design, which you have to admit is quite feminine, I'd say there will be another eeveelution in gen 6 with a more masculine design. This could cover any of the remaining types not used (rock, ground, poison, steel, bug, etc), and would be a new method of evolving eevee... Maybe when it reaches a specific level based on gender it evolves into the new eeveelution? Or maybe there's an area in the new region that promotes feminity, and one that promotes masculinity... like the Pokemon Musicals and Challenger Rock in Unova?

    I'm intrigued, especially since orange is kind of related to ground types. Got a source?

    A lot of the Eevee evolutions are pretty feminine. And none of them are female only. Just because this one is pink, it doesn't mean it's going to be any different.

    I don't know about you, but that first move definitely looks like a Fire-type move to me, and there'd be no reason for a Flying-type Eeveelution to be able to use a Fire-type move.



    - Sylveon: Syl- prefix means 'together'
    - German name derived from German word for fairy
    - Ribbons and bows --> Eevee evolving to adapt to a domesticated environment
    - Can use Fire-type attacks

    Putting these together, I think the most likely thing is Sylveon is a Normal-type Eeveelution which represents the different Eeveelutions and can use attacks of many different types.

    I'm still not content with either.. -.- It just feels really weird..

    still rooting for normal type! it would make everything about this out of place eeveelution make sense.
    I don't see why it would make sense.. Eeveelutions evolve into something different then the Normal-type..

    Anyone else really dubious that Sylveon's evolution is gender realted? Considering the only evidence is that it looks feminine, that is very weak evidence.
