The pinkness and the bows SCREAM Normal-type to me. It basically looks like an Eeveelution version of Jigglypuff or Clefairy.

I do however think it's pretty curious that the type wasn't revealed, and neither were the types for Xerneas and Yveltal...I personally don't see any reason why they would want to keep this Poke's type a secret, unless it was a completely new type altogether (Sound / Light??).

It's not Bug type, because no. It's not Flying type because it'd have some bloody wings for starters (why waste a perfectly could pegasus opportunity by not giving it wings?). Dragon type doesn't fit the colour scheme and bows - so Normal type it is (unless it's a new Type altogether).
I'm with this, every thing about it says "normal type".

Enth It is not too surprised they withheld the types for the legendaries. Since I believe Reshiram and Zekrom had their types kept a secret at first. Though if I remember right with regular pokemon they always release the types upon debut. Which is why I do agree with you, its a new type. Fingers crossed
When Reshiram and Zekrom got their initial reveal it was just their official art and names, true. However when they got they later got their feature in Corocoro it included height, weight, and types, but Xerneas and Yveltal's Corocoro feature only had height and weight...

I don't think it's enough evidence to go "oh yeah new types confirmed", but it does look really fishy...

It's probably going to put new pokemon types in the game, which this eeveelution will probably be apart of. That would explain why they're keeping it's type a secret.

No way they would make a normal eevee when they haven't even filled out all the other types yet. How can Eevee adapt to an environment that she's already perfectly adapted for?

looks for me like a normal type,I don't think it could be anything else.
It is most likely not a flying type,because then they would have used something like wings or clouds in my opinion.

Bug doesn't make any sense to me,since it looks nothing like a bug.

And it doesn't look like dragon for me(even altaria looks more like one)

However the possibility remains,that it may have a new type.
If there'd be a light type,then nympheon could fit that type pretty well and it would make sense to give us an eeveelution of the new type.

First thing that came to mind:






As others have said, looks like Normal or Flying to me. I'm betting XY will have a focus on contests again, and this Eeveelution will require high cuteness to evolve.

Bug fits is equally as well as either Normal or Flying does, to be honest. The big gem-like eyes show that more than anything. I've been looking at the scans trying to determine what attack it's using and seeing if that would give us any insight, but I can't come up with anything solid, especially considering it's likely that all move animations have had to be overhauled to sure the new 3D model battle scenes.

Just Another Dummy With An Opinion Feb 12, 13
Seeing as how its appearance (the bows and colors) resemble Skyla (the flying type gym leader in Black&White), its probably going to be a flying type, the only other type that it looks like it could fit is,,,, well let's just hope it won't be normal

obviously not: bug, rock, ground, poison, fighting, dragon, steel or ghost....... and when you count the old evolution types, all that leaves you with is flying and normal

Probably not so important but I'll add this in anyways.



I wonder what pokemon Ninfia is battling in the screenshot eaten by the binding...

Kinda reminds me of a new audino cat form for some reason.
I don't like it.
