    I was expecting Nympheon of Ninfeon but Sylveon sounds cool. With what others said , I'm guess it's gonna be a Flying type.

    The more I read the worried I am that they are going to make it only a girl pokemon. Which is a shame because it'd make a cute boy. :)

    Well, I'm just gonna throw this out there...
    Since a lot of the prefixes in the other languages are saying words such as "spirit", why can't this be the ghost type eevolution?

    I wonder what that giant white ball attack was. It looked seriously ambiguous in type.
    Oh?

    I'm guessing it's a Flying type, its ribbons look as if they're blowing in the wind.

    I too was curious what all the names meant so we could get a pool of name info from everywhere.

    This Pokémon is most likely a Dragon-type.
    If you look at the typing of all eeveelutions, you see that they are all the types on the special side of the special-physical split in Generation 3.
    The only type that was missing is dragon, and this eeveelution seems to fill that spot with flying colors.
    This eeveelution has both colors commonly attributed to the dragon type: blue and red. Both of these colors make up the icon of the type.
    It has a name that doesn't seem to fit any type in particular.
    A Pokémon Master? Yes, I am.

    I don't really think this means anything, I think it's more of a coincidence. Besides, I think Sylveon looks more flying or Normal typed than Dragon

    Meh, it's more pink than red I think, and even so, just because it has those colours, it doesn't mean it is Dragon. Flygon, Kyurem, Reshiram, Giratina, Palkia, Rayquaza and Zekrom don't have red or blue in their colours, but are still Dragon typed.

    Most commonly attributed?

    Dragon (type) - Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia

    Apart from Druddigon's face, Garchomp's belly, and Salamence's wings, red isn't a predominant colour for the type. Even then, Druddigon's the only one who gets classified in the red colour group.

    And Sylveon's mostly pink. So really, if you're going to go by colours

    What if it doesn't have a special type at all? There has been a lot of speculation about it being a girl-only eeveelution. What if that's it? What if the two new eeveelutions are just normal types, but one is a girl and one is a boy?

    If that's not it, then I guess I'd go with flying. It just seems odd to have a flying-type evolution without any sort of wings.

    Ok, I see some merit there. It is mostly pink, with blue tips. Perhaps the male eevolution will be blue with pink tips? If thats the case, I bet these eevolutions are Normal typed.

    Or, we could have an 18th type to add to the chart....it just really doesn't look like anything. So either its normal or its brand new....

    I don't think they'd allow a name like 'Nympheon'... For obvious reasons.

    This name only makes my curiosity over what type it is even greater. It seems like it might be a gender evolution though... I wonder if we'll get a male-only equivalent?

    I've seen on other sites that people think that there will be another Eeveelution introduced. I don't think that's true... I mean, why would they only show one of them and not the other? Favoritism, much? If there were going to be two, I would think they'd give us both at the same time. Sylveon seems to be the only one we get in this generation. I'm not too sure about the gender-based evolution theory, either. I would find that more likely if Eevee's gender ratio was 50% for both genders. If you notice, all gender-based evolutions feature Pokemon that have 50% male/female ratios. I don't know; I just don't think it's all too likely for Sylveon to be a female-only Pokemon, but you never know.

    I get the feeling they're using Sylveon to introduce a new type entirely. Though I don't think there needs to be a new type, the typing has worked fine since genII (Steel and Dark were needed to balance Psychic).

    Remember that Dragon is the only formerly all-special type that Eevee can't currently evolve into, maybe it's that.
