NVM just saw a video
it's mixed up with animations. Looks like scratch on chespin he just stands and does the animation but fury swipes from the frog went into another area.
I think it's gonna be a ghost type.
I doubt it's brave bird, it used swift and trump card, both common eeveelution family moves. If anything, it's probably last resort or double edge.
Nothing about its design reads as ghost type either.
It doesn't have to be obviously designed purple transparent dog thing to be a ghost type. If were gonna go by that theory then it's a normal type female only eeveelution.Nothing about its design reads as ghost type either.
wait a second......
That's too big of a coincidence to be a coincidence.
At this point, I can't possibly imagine what type Sylveon will be, other than normal. I mean, everyone seems to be pointing at the name and calling it ghost or flying, but I just don't see it. People try use the "nymph" sounding part of the name in other languages as a defining fact of it being a flying type, but when I think of something like a nymph, perhaps a fairy, in terms of pokemon, the first thing that comes to mind is Clefairy and Clefable, both of which are normal type and have similar coloring. In fact, quite a few of the pink pokemon are normal types. While that seems boring, design-wise, it's the only one that makes sense to me. Unless they introduce a new type, that is.
I like the idea of them introducing Light/Sound as a type, two that are easily adaptable to the current game. In this case, I expect Sylveon to be Light. However, if they go the "dull" route, it's likely just Normal. Which would be such wasted potential, since Umbreon was also the first introduced Dark type, this would be a great time to use Sylveon for the same purpose.
Or they could be introducing a "Fairy" type, another idea I've heard. Sylveon, Sylv- being a suffix for a forest-dwelling fairy, could easily fit that as well. And Pokemon like Clefable, Togetic, and Jiggs could easily fit into that. I'm just saying, since they said they wanted to "Evolve" Pokemon with this gen, that's a GREAT way to continue the trend, and for the competitive battlers, turn the metagame on it's head.
Or, the new fairy type is good/bad against electric.
We shall see... o_O
Level 85 (WoW) Rogue, Mage, Priest, Hunter, Warlock, Warrior, Death Knight, Paladin, Druid, Shaman
Level 80 (GW2) Thief
Level 60 (NWO) Rogue, (Rift) Rogue,
Level 50 (Swtor) Agent, Warrior, Knight, Inquisitor, Trooper, Consular, Smuggler, Hunter
15/15 Battleframes (Firefall)
Well, that image at least clears the fact that its not going to be a gender evolution and that it'll be the only new eeveelution this gen.
It's been many years since I played a Pokemon game, I think the last was Sapphire? Anyway I plan on getting X or Y version but in the meantime looking at Black / White or Black 2 / White 2.
If I could pick one which should it be? I think White / Black got perfect scores but White 2 / Black 2 are sequels so maybe they improved on stuff?
