Maybe they're being really crafty
and Sylveon is our first dual type eeveelution.
You know, it's only been like an hour or so since I found out, but I'm already starting to get comfortable with Fairy. Still don't want it to happen over Flying!Sylveon, or even Normal!Sylveon, mind.
Also, I'm confused as to why Elikteru (sp?) is part normal. Surely if it absorbs sunlight to make electricity it should be Electric/Grass?
How so, exactly? Sylveon looks every bit what I imagine a Fairy type would look like.Also, if these was true, then Sylveon couldn't be Fairy either, making the rumour self-contradictory (since, according to the new type's description, Sylveon could not be Fairy, so either the rumour is a lie or either there's going to be more than one new type and Sylveon wolud be of the other new type). Furthermore, on a personal view, I'd hate double typed attacks and I doubt Mewtwo is getting a second new forme and that the starters secondary types will be Dark/Psychic/Fighing (even if I'd love that to happen).
I would like this. Again, Poison needs the boost, and some types could stand to be nerfed (Dragon, Water, etc.)But still, if the only hints we have are that Sylveon was said to be 'strong' against Ice, but is not Steel nor Fighting (and by virtue of previous eeveelutions, it is unlikely that it is Fire), we had the following possible scenarios, in decreasing order of plausibility:
2) The type chart is indeed being changed like in Gen II.
If Sylveon is Rock type, I'm gonna have to stab a bitch.3) Game Freak is trolling us and Sylveon is Rock type.
What report? Have I missed something?4) Game Freak just pulled us the trolling of our lives and Sylveon's type is one of the other remaining old types (Normal, Bug, Dragon. Ground or Flying) and can learn naturally (that is, via level-up, no TM/HM's required) either Fire, Rock or Steel moves, hence it is effectively strong against Ice (note that according to the report, it was said that SILVEON, not Sylveon's typing, is strong to Ice, so they might be playing with words on their favor).
There's the matter of Sylveon's name trend though, I think it's the only thing going for us that it may not be one of the current types, or dual-typed.

Sylveon's advantage over Ice doesn't suggest that the type is Fairy. Everything is possible with a new type, but I'd like to believe that Game Freak would only give Ice a fifth weakness if it made sense.
I think that the advantage would be justified if said type were Aether/Astral (both could be considered as the same thing). Aether is supposed to encompass all the classical elements (including fire), and both Aether and Astral pertain to using the stars as an energy source. I would think that high temperature would be involved.
That's fake. It was posted in April.Originally Posted by Rainy Day
According to Serebii, Parabola Change breaks the character limit for moves (previously seven characters) as it's パラボラチャージ
Might we get...*gasp* a Pokemon with more than 5 JP/10 EN characters for a name?
I think the fact that that second form is so ridiculously unimaginative (basically just a mash of mewtwo and our newmew form) confirms how fake it is.
^^More pixels to work in the 3DS which means the letters can be smaller so the names can be longer so...could be.
Mewtwo's alternate form was revealed. Personally, the details on this Fairy type make it sound a bit too overpowered. There's no sign that Mewtwo would have a second alternate form since it would have appeared through the promotional information for the movie by now. As much as I'd like a Psychic/Dark/Fighting secondary typing for the starters, I'm not sure if they'd go that route. Regardless, the information on Fairy type and especially the second form for Mewtwo is enough to make me seriously doubt this information for the time being. I'm still expecting Game Freak to troll us with Sylveon's type at this point.
Anyway, Erikiteru is easily my favorite out of the new Pokemon. It's just such a cute little lizard. Electric/Normal is an interesting combination. I could see it losing the Normal type through its evolution. I could see it being on one of my teams in the new games. Yanchamu is pretty cool. I like the toughness in its design. I kept on thinking that it could evolve into a Fighting/Grass type for some reason, despite the four times weakness it would gain for Flying type moves, but Fighting/Dark would make a bit more sense based on the information. Either way, I expect to see it fight with a bamboo stick after it evolves. Yayakoma is a pretty decent for the usual early route Flying type. I like the simplistic design and learning Flame Charge is kind of interesting. I could see it evolving twice since it looks so small. Gogoat is pretty cool. I like that you can actually ride on it. I'm leading towards it being a standalone, but I could see it getting a pre-evolved form too.
I kind of feel like Yayakoma will only have one evo.
Does anyone think this Generation might have a fairly large amount of Pokemon despite being what we thought was the smaller, even-Gen?
The fact they're revealing four New Pokemon already, when this issue typically is light on New Pokemon in past pre-releases, is pretty interesting. I mean, we've got 10 Pokemon already, and we're bound to get more next month I'd reckon.
By "the report" I meant, "what was reported today on Pokémon Smash". My bad, I apologize for the horrendous wording.What report? Have I missed something?
