New eeveelution!

Edit: Video!

English name is Sylveon. Type is still a secret though. But judging by its English name, it could be based on “sylph”, can mean

1. A slim, graceful woman or girl.
2. In the occult philosophy of Paracelsus, a being that has air as its element.


New Eeveelution in Gen VI!! Japanese name is Ninfia, type, ability, English name currently unknown. It will make its debut in the Pikachu short before the Genesect movie, titled “Pikachu and Eevee Friends”.

What do you think of Ninfia? What type do you think it is? My first instinct was Flying. Nin = nimbasa? Its “hair” style kind of reminds me of Skyla. But it could also be plausible as Normal, Fighting, Dragon, or even a new type (“Light” ??)

It’s also really really pink and girly-looking, haha. Do you think it’ll still be 75% male? Or is this female-only. How does it evolve from Eevee?

I remember the logo being revealed before the Gen VI announcement on Jan 8th, and there were speculations about a new eeveelution based on the colours of the logo. The katakana for “Eevee friends” each had one corresponding to an existing eeveelution (and Eevee). But there was that mysterious bow symbol. Some thought the pinkness of the bow represented Espeon, leaving a pink letter unexplained. Looking at the logo now makes much more sense.
