Exclamation New eeveelution!!

UPDATE: Official Name is Sylveon Nintendo still has not released the official type of this new eevee. Click here to see the new eevee in action New Pok?mon (Sylveon) for Pok?mon X and Y?




I had a post awhile back when I talked about the possibility of having genetic engineering in the new Pok?mon game. This is a perfect example if I'm right. What I think this is, is a cross between two types of eevees. For example cross a fire and a water (not saying that's the one pictured) and get an eevee with the two types and an all new looking pokemon. Once again I strongly believe that there is genetic engineering in the new Pok?mon games by the title and the DNA looking symbol in the Japanese version of the games title.

I really don't like the design. The eyes and tentacles are pretty unattractive, imo.

I hope what you say about the genetic-crossing isn't true. No offense, it just seems like too radical of a change for franchise that's known for being conventional with its gameplay.

How exactly would genetic engineering in Pokemon work?

probably how eevee, kyurem, giratina, shaymin, keldeo, manaphy/phione, gallade/gardevoir, and deoxys work. i wouldn't be surprised if they went crazy and gave every final evo an alternate form

You just mean alternate formes? I don't really see what you are getting at with those examples.

I could very easily be wrong, but to me it looks like a "Normal" evolution for Eevee. While I've seen a lot of people claim that's redundant ("Just don't evolve your Eevee!"), it actually could make a lot of sense, as Eevee is pretty weak statistically, might as well allow for a Normal evolution for better stats, but keeping the type.

Yea I understand that. I mean even Gen I had a shapeshifting Pokemon.

I just don't understand what that has to do with genetic engineering or how it would be implemented in the games.

LOL. I hope it doesn't feel like I'm picking on you. I'm just interested in what people think new gameplay mechanics will be in the game.

I personally really like the design, but maybe its because I've just never been a huge fan of the other eevee's in general. It looks more interesting and cute, although I could deal with one less bow. And I think it being normal
type could be really cool as long it gets good stats and move pool to fit that.

You consider those tentacles? Lols The first thing those RIBBONS reminded me of was suicune not tentacles.

Sorta on topic but after seeing this eevee I did not get the vibe on genetic engineering at all.

I'm not saying the every evo will have a new form. Just that there will be some form of genetic engineering. That would be crazy if the did every form.

I wondered if it was perhaps normal type because it does look so absent of any element that the Eeveelution tree requires; however I really like the idea of the crossbreed/gene manipulation. It would make the choice for the game's titles make more sense and I think its a new step in a series that has not really switched things up for a looooong time.

It's about time we see something new, and I'm a huge Eevee fan so a cross-type would really work for me and I would super love that.

It kind of reminds me of Skitty and Victini. The ribbon design and overall color scheme is awfully cute, although also absolutely horrifying considering it's supposed to be organic flesh/fur. Although Suicune's ribbons/toilet paper never really concerned me, but I guess its Legendary status made me hand-wave it.

Regardless, I really hope this design is a sign that the Pokemon Contests will return. This is a contest pokemon if I've ever seen one, and I really missed that game feature. I'm siding with the type being Normal as well, but the fact that they're keeping it and how you evolve it a secret is curious. It must have some kind of connection to the game plot or a new feature, otherwise what would be the point of withholding the info?

The genetic meddling idea is interesting, and I like that it ties into the version titles as well. But if true that would be such a huge array of new pokemon possibilities, it would take years to map them all out. There's no way it could be fully fleshed out in this game. Perhaps it's more like Designer Pokemon for the rich, like Mewtwo and Porygon, but the program is being attacked by Pokemon purist groups. And this new Eevee is one of the examples before it got shut down. Just an idea. (or maybe it relates back to Mew's genetic material, since all pokemon dna originates with her?)

But either way, I'm glad they've released something new regarding the game. I hope they'll continue this trend of bread crumbs as the weeks/months go on. It gives time for speculating on each thing, and still have more to look forward to for the next one.

the eeveelutions all have a good color for their types. this one might just be normal because of its neutral colors. It would also be cool if contests were brought back, and you get ninfia by winning a contest with eevee.

Just now a new official trailer has been released for this new Pok?mon.
Pok?mon X and Pok?mon Y: A New Pok?mon Has Been Revealed! - YouTube
Its official English name is Sylveon, but its type is still unknown.

Sylveon connects to the word sylph which is still like a nymph, a wingless flying fairy, or something in the woods. Normal, flying, and bug seem the most likely.

None of its attacks shown in the new gameplay footage really had a flying-type look to it... My bet is still either on a new type completely, or Normal type - like an upgraded Eevee. No matter what, that thing had been learn the move Wish. It just looks perfect for it.

There won't be any new types, but that's a different story for a different day. And all the moves shown are ones that can be learnt by every eeveelution. They probably didn't show type specific moves to keep it hidden. Its name indicates flying and its the lightest eeveelution too, makinf it easy to fly.

The moves I think it used were:
Trump card
Focus blast
calm mind or similar
Swift

Pok?mon Has A New Eevee Evolution. How Many Eevees Do We Even Need?

Wish it was a dragon type Eevee. Oh well.

Let's stop asking for Eeveelutions.

This looks terrible. My guess is that it will also be a terrible Pokemon

It was announced days ago and we know nothing about it. And most of the eeveelutions arent that good anyway.

I wasn't really being serious, though I really don't like the design.

Plus Flareon, Leafeon, and Glaceon are the only really bad ones.

I don't want to say you're an idiot but biology has nothing to do with that

Added after 2 minutes:

here's gameplay footage of the new eevee without really giving away what type it is. New Pok?mon (Sylveon) for Pok?mon X and Y?

I disagree Flareon and Lefeon was perfectly fine. Glaceon was the only weak one (and the ugliest imo).

But Eevee's evolution are outdated with only being one type anymore.

Seeing how they've always added two Eeveelutions at a time, I would bet that there'd be another new addition as well. At this point, I don't think Game Freak will stop until there is an Eeveelution for each type.

They are the worst because they are completely outclassed by other Pokemon at what they do. Umbreon is also outclassed, but not as much.

Espeon and jolteon are basically the only not outclassed and decent ones at this point.

Vaporeon can be a pain in the rain with Hydration and rest but really only those 3 are usable .

im leaning more towards flying again with the thought of the XY legendaries. sylveon could be flying like yveltal might be and the other supposed eeveelution could be the same type as xerneas. just a thought

Antenna?

The ribbons don't look like they are an actual organ/part of the pokemon though.

A friend introduced me to the theory that Sylveon is a female exclusive evolution while another eevee might be introduced later on that is a male exclusive evolution.

Thanks for the laugh. Srsly, compare this pokemon to any bug type pokemon to date, and tell me if there's an INCH of resemblance to them in terms of anatomy. GameFreak isn't stupid bro, a bug type pokemon as AT LEAST something akin to a real insect in life. Sylveon doesn't look like it in the LEAST.

There's no need to act like a condescending jerkwad, "bro".

Shuckle, Forretress, Escavalier, and Accelgor don't look like any insect I know of from real life. A pokemon doesn't have to look a certain way in order to be a particular type.

Bug isn't that far of a stretch since all we have to go is its appearance. It's not like it's a completely off-the-wall guess like rock or steel.

Brah, I was just using his same logic for looking at the types. I know Sylveon looks nothing like a bug, but does he looks anything like a steel type either? Seriously calm down.

No it actually doesn't. Why mention steel type?O.o

What ticks me off (not you personally) it's because I see pokefans making random speculations that are too farfetch'd.

Stop going off on people who have different theories than you.

If you look at my first post where a mentioned bug type I was replying to a guy who thought it was steel.

Yeah saw that. Eh... tbh I see it more of a normal type.
However, I never saw Eevee getting a normal evolution so if that's the case, it's interesting.
Second guess is flying. Mostly because of the ears, but I am relunctant about it. That's it for me.

Looking at these pictures of it reminds me of pokemon like jiggypuff, celfairy, and chansey. Im not fond of ts could do without the ribbons. Compared to all the other evolutions it looks out of place, and I really like all the other evolutions.

If Sylveon got rid of those ribbons, I'd still probably hate it, but meh. Just put into consideration the moves it used in the video - To me they seemed like Flash Cannon, Trump Card, Swift, and focus blast. So if what I think those moves are is what they are, some possible typings are steel, normal, and fighting. But those moves could also mean a new type everyone. I'm not saying there will be, and I certainly hope there isn't; but if there is, it'd explain sylveon's odd moves and appearance. At the moment, the biggest possibilities to me seem like steel, normal and fighting, not because of those moves, but because of the appearance of this eeveelution.

If they announced a ghost type eeveelution, I might change my mind about sylveon, but I doubt that'd happen. Also anyone notice how they aren't making its type clear on purpose? Another reason for a new type. At least the other eeveelutions clearly looked one type. But sylveon could look a lot like the type it is if there was a new type.

And then I'll laugh at how when it was released, everyone said that it wasn't brown so it automatically wasn't. XD

*Trainer used Revive*

I'll add to this thread instead of the mewtwo one since this thread is about sylveon.
analysis of the mewtwo movie trailer with sylveon

The sylveon part in the new mewtwo movie trailer posed even more questions for me. It used attract on Meowth, its ribbons glow, and it is shown in the egg-shaped thing at the end.

Well, I don't really like it's looks. I went through all the possible types and the results are........
Not possible: Steel. Ground. Rock. Fighting. Other Evee evolutions. Bug. Dragon.
Possible: New type. Flying (Doubt it, but if it is, there trying to hide the identity.) Ghost. MABYE Normal.
I really can't predict the outcome, even though I'm good at this kind of stuff.

Don't feel too bad about not being able to call this one. Game freak is throwing everyone for a loop with sylveon. All the other eevee types are recognizable and easy to tell. Sylveon not only has an odd color choice for whatever type it is, it also uses obscure moves as seen in the trailer. They have us good with this one.

I think it would make the most sense for it to be a Normal-type Pok?mon, but they already have Eevee. Though it just occurred to me that, what if they don't include Eevee into the count when they're thinking of new evolutions? They could be planning on eventually having Eevee, and then an evolution to cover each of the 17 types. Just a thought.

The more they show Sylveon, the more I'm thinking that it's a Normal-type instead of a Flying-type. Honestly, I'd like new types as much as the next guy, but it doesn't seem very likely. They felt it was necessary to add Dark and Steel into Generation II so they could "balance out the over-powered Psychic-type and the underused Fighting-type". I don't see why they would need to add new types this time around, if not just for the sake of adding them.

Though, if they did add new types, I'd like them to somehow make Grass-types more useful. I feel like Grass-types aren't very useful, especially when they're matched against some different types that you might want to include in your team.

HHHHNNNNNGGGGHHHHHH

In Japan, Dark type is known as "Aku" type which translates to "evil". It basically means fighting using trickery and deception.

It is already countered by the Fighting type.

We have at least 164 days left to wait. That countdown is assuming that this game will be released on October 1st, which probably isn't the case.

They said it would be october And haven't changed that date at all. Maybe they announced it slightly earliest than they should have, but either way, it's coming out.

You mean the same graphics as battle revolution? I don't think they look that good, and the cel-shaded looks really good and fits the look of the pokemon more.

Thing is that they've tried to recreate the little pixelated Pokemon Trainer you get, into a 3D CGI one...
In my personal opinion, I'd have preferred it if it was like Pokemon Colosseum or Pokemon XD styled.

I think this one is either Flying, Light (new type), and/or Female only.

Nothing else would make sense.

I never even thought about it being a female-only evolution. That could be possible. They've always added two Eeveelutions at a time, so maybe if that was the case, the other could be a male-only evolution. That would be interesting.

Hey, yeah. Maybe they'll finally have an eeveelution just through leveling up. For example, you reach lvl. 30 and if your Eevee's a girl, it'll be a Sylveon; if it's a boy, it'll be Sylveon's counterpart. Maybe both retain the Normal-type as well. I'd be okay with that.

That's practically what I had on the Mewtwo strikes back with a vengeance thread, except without the genders.

There's a strong rumor that fairy type could be a thing. Supposedly the guy who also leaked the gen 5 pokedex and originally newtwo.

If it's true, I really hope "fairy" gets translated to "light." Fairy-type sounds so lame.

Why would fairy be translated to light? Seriously what is with the obsession with "light"? Why does it have to be light? I just want to get a big red rubber stamp with the word "NO" on it and jam it into people's foreheads.

I would be slightly more open to fairy over light. Plus it makes for a lot of great faitlyoddparents references.

I won't say that I hate the idea of having a "Fairy-type", but I do think it sounds a little weird. Like, it just doesn't seem to fit very well with the names of the other types. In my opinion, anyway. But to be fair, after having the same 17 types for so long now, I'm sure any type would sound weird to me.

I'd definitely be more open to a Fairy-type than a "Sound-type", which is another big type that fans have been talking about.

There is some credence to Fairy, given the names Sylveon/Nymphia. (Sylph and Nymph respectively.) I was almost convinced that was going to be in relation to Flying though, but I guess I cannot close myself off to the possibility that this could be true.

I am eager to learn more. Come one Gamefreak, put us all out of our speculative misery, I beg you.

I still don't think that we need a new type.

But I'll take Fairy type over Light type.

Whatever it is, I hope it weakens Fighting and strengthens Grass in the metagame. I feel like that's mostly why I was rooting for Light - it made the most sense in that situation. Fairy works too, I guess.

I could see Fairy as being a possibility, except we've had an unparalleled "Dark" type with no real opposite for a long time. I was confused when they put out the type that there wasnt a "Light" to go with it. So I think the chances of it being light are a bit greater xD

But who knows, maybe its not even a new type O.O

People often say that Fighting is Dark's opposite - since in Japan, Dark is actually "Evil" and apparently heroes fight evil. Which never made much sense to me, since being a Fighting type didn't necessarily make you a hero... Or that all dark types were evil. They were just mainly affiliated with combat and darkness, respectively.

Fighting type = martial arts which is an honorable form of fighting.

Dark type = trickery, deception aka dishonorable.

Oh, that does make sense. But then again Fire's opposite isn't Aloe Vera.

More directly, there's an ability called "Justified" which raises a Pokemon's attack after being hit by a Dark type attack. The only Pokemon who normally possess that ability are the Fighting type legendaries introduced in Black/White

I believe the hero thing was just justification on why Fighting was super effective against Dark.

Types don't really need to have an anti-type, however.

I personaly think that if they add a new type, that they make ineffective to grass types and super effective against electric types.
also, search for my previos post on this forum and see my prediction (sort of).

I heard that Some people think it is going to be a Fairy Type, but then again it is just a rumor. It would be interesting to have a new type because we haven't had one since second Gen.

Huh, I wonder if they will ever add a Genetics type Pokemon...
It's funny how it takes Scientists years to create Mewtwo, but Humans are making Trubbish and Grimer without even trying.

Well they were trying to create the perfect pokemon, not just any old pokemon. Scientists already could make pokemon without trying(fossils).

You know what I just kind of realized?

This:


Looks a whole lot like this:


Perhaps the Gym's type is the same type of Sylveon? Some kind of Cosmic-type?

The gym is probably psychic, which sylveon isn't, so no.

It kinda looks like a normal type to me. It may seem pointless, but I like the idea of more moves and better stats. When the game comes out I'll go searching for how to get it.

I guess I'll cross post my reasoning/opinion here. xD

First off, some people seem to think fairy type will suck because it'll only be cutie pink flying things and such. Fairies aren't just one species. It's actually a sort of classification of mythical creatures.

I'll list some of the more well known species categorized as fae:

Banshees, Brownies, Changelings, Dwarves, Dryads, Elves, Fauns, Fairies, Gnomes, Goblins, Hags, Hobgoblins, Kappa, Kelpies, Leprechauns, Little Folk, Mermaids, Nymphs, Pixies, Sprites, Sidhe, Sith, Selkies, Wee Folk, Youkai, etc.

In addition to all these species, some may belong to the Unseelie or Seelie Court. These two courts represent both "good" and "bad" fae, so we can see some Fae/Dark combos I think.

Second... Sylveon's type weaknesses, etc, do make sense if it's a fairy type.

Weakness to Poison and Steel - Faeries are tied to nature, so just as poison is 2x on grass, it's 2x on faeries. They're also weak to iron like werewolves to silver.
Immunity to Dragon - Makes sense for one mythical creature to resist another?
Super-effective against Dragon, Dark and Fire-types - Erm, actually not too sure here. Again super effective to dragon because they're both mythical and well... dragon is super effective to itself. Dark types are also known as evil types, and fairies are known to punish bad acts. For fire... Not really sure. They do protect nature and fire is an enemy of forests so... maybe that? @_@ I'm not that into fairy lore so I dunno if fire has any real significance.



"Sylv" is generally used for things relating to nature. From wiki: "Sylvan or Silvan refers to an association with the woods." It also refers to tree-spirits. (Sort of wonder if there will be any more dimensional hi-jinks involved now, considering fairies are considered to drift between dimensions..)

I don't understand why fire should get another weakness. Seems kinda unfair.

Also had a spontaneous thought... If Fairy sounds too icky of a type name, perhaps it can be translated just as "Fae".

To be honest... this goes against the fairy idea but.... the new type should be super effective against electric and ineffective against grass.

I do the same thing! I normally try to breed a batch of Eevee so I can have one of each evolution in my PC. It's a good feeling when you finally have all of them collected in one spot. Unfortunately, I ended up getting lazy with White 2 and not evolving most of them, so I just have a batch of normal Eevee. I'll have to get on that once X and Y is released. I'm more concerned with getting all of the starters right now.

Getting all the starters can definitely be tedious, but it isn't too difficult. Normally, people on the forums will be willing to give a few starters for free to get you started and then you can just go about trading the starters you have for other starters that you don't have. It works out. c:

I haven't had all the starters since Sapphire, so that's one of my goals for when I get X. I'm probably gonna need to dedicate two whole PC boxes for that. xD
