New Eevee evolution in Pokémon X and Y: Ninfia!

Finally, it appears some news pertaining to Pokémon X and Y has finally surfaced! A picture taken from inside of the upcoming Japanese CoroCoro magazine has revealed a new Pokémon, although one evolving from a familiar face: Eevee! Yes, that's right, it's a new "Eeveelution" and its Japanese name is Ninfia!

Its type, ability, and evolution method are left as a mystery, however, but it is confirmed to stand 1m tall (3' 3") and weigh 23.5kg (51.8lbs). It will apparently be featured in a special mini-movie before the newest movie in Japan, which has had its full title revealed as "Godspeed/Extremespeed Genesect and the Reawakening of Mewtwo."

So, what do you think of the new Eeveelution? What type do you think it will be? How do you think you'll get it? Get that discussion going in the comments, and be sure to tell your friends about it, too!

    I think it's going to be a normal type based off the overall look and design concept, also the name sounds like it could be a normal sounding one. Also if you look at the video it does use two normal type attacks swift, and trump card. As for the last two attacks, one of them looked like focus blast while the other could possibly be focus energy, which again is a normal type attack. Evolution wise in the eon cycle, I think it will be based off held item.

    maybe leveling up while holding a prism scale ? and I don't think that was focus energy maybe mind reader cuz that's closest one I could think of

    i think holding a certain ribbon is more likely, but that just my 2 cent. :D

  • #158 ZezeRodrigues

    I don't think there will be a "light" pokemon. That would just make the game weird ? 

    What weaknesses ? That would definitly make it weird.

    It might have something to do with dark / ghost and psychic.

    Since psychic can't hit dark. Ghost won't be able to hit light ? 

    And if light come in this new version, they will just include a few light ? or most of the new pokemons light ? well, it's all just a mystery now. can't wait to buy it. haven't even finished my black 2 version >.<

    seems to me that whenever a previous gen pokemon evolved into a new pokemon by holding an item, they made a new item for that purpose. i doubt they would use a pre-existing item if sylveon were to evolve via item+trade or item+level up. i'm going with it as a flying or normal type you evolve when it has a specific ribbon or such.

  • #160 Emerald7Chaos

    I don't think it will evolve with a HELD item, but a used one. Looking at it, it is either a Normal or a Flying type, and I think you will have to use a Shiny or a Dawn Stone on it to make Eevee evolve into Sylveon

    It looks so cute!

    it probably is a normal, light,steel(silver), or maybe even flying

    It's evolution method will be different and new (or at least with new items) because if it wasn't, why couldn't it evolve from Eevee in earlier generations?

  • #164 SilverLinoone

    They could make a new bow item, and your Eevee has to level up while holding it to evolve.

  • #165 ZezeRodrigues

    I think it's gonna be a fighting type.

  • #166 AwesomeRandomGuy

    Is f**king light type check the light and sound theory!!!!!!!!!! 

  • #167 The_Test

    1: That censor style violates the rules. Dont ask.

    2: I agree with the light type theory, i mean, Why make a new eeveelution? And Xerneas looks like a light type as well, and Yveltal a dark.

    3: Dont be so harsh....

    4: The sound type is... i just.... I dont get it. There is allmost no pokemon based around sound. Why make a type?

  • #168 SilverLinoone

    The only sound based are Whismur, Loudred, Exploud, Chatot, and maybe a few more. And that would still be too much to change their types now. 

    I really want Sylveon to be Flying. Light Type sounds cool though.

  • #169 Pokemon_XD001

    Anyone else seen this? Apparently Sylveon is a normal type *sigh*

  • #170 The_Test

    That could easily be fake. Nintendo isnt just going to let the names and typings out.

  • #171 Pokemon_XD001

    Thats what i thought, but it's worth waiting to see :D

  • #172 eevee_mastr

    It looks like the baby of victini and milotic :)


  • #173 NukeAge63

    Possibly a flying type Eevee?

  • #174 Quagsauras

    If they don't add new types, it has to be flying or normal IMO. It has the stapled butterfly bows, and those streamers/scarfs. But, if they do add new types, it has to be light. It is its birthright.

  • #175 kianbj

    its face looks like victini maybe theyll be a special event for a cave with victini in it and theyll be a stone called the victory stone in it:charizard:
