I Realy think the New Eeveelution is a Normal type Eevee has never gone to just an upgraded normal type could have a simmilar moveset to stoutland with higher stats and to me it realy looks like a normal type there's alresdy flareon for fire and it doesent look like a dragon, could be the first mixed type or fighting eevee but id put my money on Normal

Looks like we have ourselves a Normal-type eeveelution, then. I wonder what it's English name will be?

Reminds me of Skyla or whatever from Black/White.

Kinda cute, though I'm not sure how excited I am about the possibility of another normal type.

Weird Eevee, Milotic and Victini looking Eevee-lution... not really a fan of the appearance but we will see what type/moves/battle stuff it can do.

Ninfia, in my opinion, is clearly going to be translated a s Nympheon, and it will be a Flying types. For those who would like to know more of why I think it will be like this, look up for nymphs in mythology

I would also say flying based on its name and color of the eyes.

I'm stumped - though heading towards bug type (though it does look like a normal type). In biology, Nymph (from nympheon - i think nifia will be translated to) refers to a stage in some insects' lives. Nymphs also appear in greek mythology though...
X and Y legend seems to be deeply based off norse mythology and real-world mythology in general, but greek nymphs can be celestial, underworld, water, land or plant nymphs - and I feel there are just too many variations of greek nymphs to base the eeveelution type on.
X and Y also seems to be based on DNA (X, Y chromosomes and DNA in logos) so I believe the bug-type makes more sense.
If the game is DNA-centric, then the whole workings of eevee better be delved into. Maybe mew as well, seeing as he is the ancestor of all pokemon. I also hope solosis makes some sort of relevant return then too

    Do you mind if you could give us a link to say the translation? I've seen Nympheon flying around the net, and I haven't seem to have a reliable source telling me if it's actually Nympheon.

    Also, it could be a normal type eeveelution. Wouldn't really surprise me tbh. Except I've always thought it'd be the same colour scheme as Eevee, not a a walking Milotic. I'm sorta hoping for Flying, but I dunno, it doesn't really tell me anything from the design. xD
