    I'm not liking the whole Fabric-type idea...
    What types of attacks could be classified as "fabric-type"? And what Pokemon would the "fabric-type" include? Throh and Sawk?

    "Fabric" is kind of non-nonsensical and vague. You need to be able to mostly tell most Pokemon's types by a glance, and fabric - you just can't.

    Now if you took a similar idea and made it a "Puppet" or "Toy" type I could actually see that working. Since the obvious signs of an animated puppet would be marionette strings, zippers, patchwork. And there's a lot of fiction about toys coming to life.

    And you'd only really have to retcon Shuppet and Banette into Ghost/Puppet-type Pokemon.

    But even if that were the case, I don't see any such signs on Ninfina.

    How bout Fiber? We're toying what that idea in the CoroCoro thread, and it makes more sense then Fabric. Fiber's could be anything from silk to wool, to even fibers in vegetables. Its not man made and more organic, and it could work with some interesting type dualities. As for weaknesses/strengths, I can see it weak to fire and psychic, with it being strong against fighting, ghost(it would be the first physical typing to hurt it!) and perhaps rock, considering how the common types of fiber are water based or grass based. Thoughts?

    Nah, this time around its justified. Eeveelutions are type-specific, and when you have a series which keeps its type genres to a specific look, it raises questions when something like this doesn't fit to anything. Bug type? Too fox like, and it doesn't have something characteristically bug about it. Those ribbons are ribbons, not butterflies. Dragon's aren't furry, normal Eeveelution would be more eeveeish, and psychic is something we already have covered. We should be speculating on it, and not going straight away for the argument that no new types will happen. Gen 6 is likely to be the generation with the biggest overhaul, and a new type would fit with it.

    I would put the likelihood of Sound, Beauty, Beast, Love, Spirit, Gravity, Magic, Energy, Mythic, Machine, Light, Life, Puppet, Space, Sea, Wind, AND Forest-types as concepts all well before something just plain weird as Fabric.

    If they were to modify the type chart, I'd hope that Poison would become Super-Effective against both Water and Bug. While there are many bugs that are poisonous/venomous, there's still the fact that various ones can be susceptible to kinds of poison.

    Again, not fabric, but fiber. Fabric would be the interweaving of many fibers by humans, were as fiber is the organic material many thing are made of.

    Major difference in the two. We'll likely know by Friday what the english name is, and if its Nineon, based on Ninon, well then what type would it be? Nympheon as well would raise questions, as nympheon could refer to both bugs, and the ancient greek mythlogical creatures.

    If Alteria can be a Dragon so can Ninfia... there is no evidence for a new type at all... it's been over 13 years since we got new types... Ninfia can easily be Flying or Dragon (again Alteria) I'm 99.999999999% sure we won't get a new type

    Sure we have Altaria, but my point still stands. Eeveelutions have been type specific with their designs, and while they still look like foxes, even Glaceon and Leafeon follow design patterns that fall into their type, when they could have been something more out there. I see no reason why GF would stray away from this now, instead of with those 2.

    It could also be resistant to Electric-type, as per optical fiber, which is an insulator.

    I guess one can always opt not to participate in these discussions though, cause they will always exists as long as there's no new type.

    As long as the Pokemon franchise moves forward, I wouldn't rule anything out honestly.

    Bind, Wrap, Harden, String Shot, Constrict, Cotton Spore, Spider Web, Mirror Coat and Camouflage come to mind.

    It should be Pokémon naturally associated with fibers. There are actually not that many of them: Mareep, Flaafy, Cottonee and Whimsicott, and to a lesser extent the Spinarak, Joltik and Scraggy families (the problem being that they already have two types).

    Those are just the obvious match-ups. The other ones could be arbitrary (as is often the case) to set Fiber apart from Grass. A resistance to Fighting would also make sense.

    Bullshit, there is NOTHING pointing to a new type with Ninfia... if anything he'd be Normal... we won't be getting a new type... you've been proven wrong 3 times now... honestly the new type discussion is the most pointless speculation... if GF hinted at a new type yeah but you're grasping at straws.... 17 types is enough... it's been 13 years let the new type thing die already
