    Just looking, I couldn't guess it's type. Unless somebody who knows enough Japanese can garner from its name what it might be.

    It has "Type: ???" and "Ability: ???" in Japanese.

    The name "Ninfia" is probably a reference to nimbus clouds, so it could be a Flying type, but I'm not willing to say that's certain.

    This looks like a really cool Pokémon, can't wait to see it in 3D. :)

    It looks like the sort of Pokemon that should evolve with a high Beauty rating. I really can't see how it could be any type other than normal, it doesn't have any obvious hints of anything else.

    Or it could evolve from a moon stone, perhaps. I'm guessing Normal-type as well, though Ninfia does sound kind of like 'Nymph', as in like a fairy, so I'll take an option out on flying type.

    I'm gonna say bug-type because of the butterfly-like ribbon thingies: give Eevee a ribbon, trade it away, evolves into Nynfeon.

    Hmm... I'm leaning toward either a Normal-type (judging by it's fairly plain coloring and design) or a Flying-type (due to above mentions of nimbus clouds and the butterfly-like ribbons). Though a Bug-type isn't impossible either, but it seems to lack Bug-type characteristics, the only thing I see are the butterfly ribbons that could possibly connected it to the Bug-type. Either way, it looks adorable. That rounds up the Eeveelutions to a grand total of eight. I wonder what it'll look like in 3D. Guess we'll know soon enough.

    I'm going for the Fighting type because I think that the prefix "Nin" might have been taken from the word "Ninja".
    A few related examples: Leafia, Glacia etc.

    My money's presently on flying type, due to the sky-blue eyes and assortment of floating/butterfly-shaped ribbons. If that turns out to be the case, then I'm glad that they went with a more interesting design than simply sticking a pair of eagle wings on its back (as I've seen done in countless fan art).

    I think flying is indeed the most plausible, though I consider bug a possibility as well (large, round eyes, the butterfly shapes, the ribbons)
    It seems a bit too... decorated? to be a normal type

    I think it is going to be Normal-type, particularly because there's only one rather than two like usual.

    Also, it would be pretty awesome if it was Nin for Nintendo.

    I say Flying-type or Normal-type. To me the bows/feathers look like they could be used as wings.Also as someone above mentioned , the name might derive from nimbus cloud or maybe even nymph.
    Either way it's rather cute.

    I think its name came from nymph, not the myth one
    but another meaning:
    - young girl, especially one who inspires lustful feelings
    - (attractive young woman): lolita, nymphet, nymphette
