    Except Dark type in Japan is already known as 'Evil' type. It doesn't necessarily mean that Pokemon in that typing are evil (Absol as an example), but they are already handed a stigma of being 'bad' due to the classification.

    How so? The opposite of it would most likely be Dark.

    There is no need for a Light-type. Sound, Mystic or Fairy maybe, but not Light.
    I agree. Sound would be plausible with the Pokemon we already have, fairy too.


    In regard to the speculated new type, I don't want a new type really, I feel as though its too late. But if there was going to be one, rather than light, I'd prefer cosmic/alien type. Introducing a cosmic type could work with many Pokemon - Deoxys, the Skitty line, the Clefairy line etc. I'd say Solrock and Lunatone (and other dual types like Staryu and Starmie) but being rock psychic, they are hardly going to have 3 typings. Unless psychic is removed and replaced with cosmic, I'd imagine cosmic types to be psychic, but with a little something extra. This new Eeveelution looks, to me anyway, a little alien. But like a lot of you, I'm leaning towards normal - I wont repeat the reasons.
    I'm a girl.

    I call a Squirrel legendary in X and Y, just sayin'.

    Why holy? There is no "holy" Pokémon, not even Arceus. Pokémon aren't literal gods or sacred beings, a holy type would be really weird and as Konoko Hasano pointed out, it would be hard to localize the game in North America. Really, if you guys are hoping for a counterpart for the Dark/evil type, there is already a type for that: Fighting. I don't get the obsession with light/holy types.

    Actually, that's one thing that came to mind.

    I don't know, but how is Fighting "good" if dark is "evil"?

    Still, I don't agree on saying all Dark-types are naturally EVUL, maybe you're from the evil type, but that doesn't mean you yourself have no choice on the matter.

    And even then, what would define a mon being holy?

    It was just an idea I was throwing out.

    Predicting: A Normal-type with some unique ability.

    For the longest time, Pokemon with some sort of "fairy" inspiration or design thought-process have always stayed neutral (Normal) with the games.

    I simply cannot envision creating a Fairy-type and retconning all of those older Pokemon. Thus, I'm going with the simplest route and therefore choice.

    Honestly, a fairy type doesn't sound bad. They could include not only fairy Pokemon, but Pokemon related to stories and fairytales too. Although I hate the name Fairy-type. Fae-type or Pixie-type sounds better.

    To be serious though I know what y'all mean and you're right. But I kind of see normal type in its color scheme. Or a new type, everything else does not fit in my opinion.
    And to be honest I would welcome a new type unlike all the others here, haha. And this is said by a veteran since RBY times :P
    Not... really...?

    ;_; Let's just drop this. It's not getting any of us anywhere.


    Anyway, I can see Sylveon being a Normal type if you consider various angles of things, but I'm still keeping myself open to Flying and Bug based upon the names. I wouldn't be surprised if they punched out a Dragon type. However, Flying or Bug -- maybe even a Fae if it came to that -- typing seem likely.

    more ice than water :P
    but as you said it's unimportant.


    Back to Sylveon. I'll copy what I've written over on Smogon:

    Its German name is probably a combination of Fee (fairy) and feeling: Feelinara.
    Feeling... Pink... Officially announced on Valentine's day...

    Love type confirmed trolololo

    Edit: Official german website (don't know about the others): "[...] And now a new Eeveelution has been discovered! Which type does Sylveon belong to? The answer will remain a secret for a while!"

    Now I really think a new type is possible.

    The new footage didn't really help with typing Sylveon, at least to me. I'm still saying Normal, especially since it was using Swift and probably Trump Card in the clip. Does anyone know what that first move that it used was?

    No one knows for sure yet, but it does look a bit like Double Edge.

    Alright, I'm changing my answer. It's a new type: Barbeque.

    Strong against Flying (chicken), weak against Water (to wash it down).

    While I agree that normal is a big possibility, I have to say I really hope it's not. Not because I don't want a normal type Eeveelution, which would be awesome, but because I would want it to look like you would expect an evolution of Eevee to look if it evolved normally. Keep the brown and white fur and just get bigger and more elegant or strong looking.
