    Default Analysing X and Y

    Hey everyone!

    So this thread is a news base thread where I will post images and updates of the new Pokémon X and Y games and then give you all my thoughts and speculations regarding those updates.
    It is said it will be featured in the new Pokémon movie along with Mewtwo (wait what?) which will come out this year.

    Today's update is a leak fro Coro Coro of a new Eeveelution currently called "Ninfia". It's typing and evolution requirements are *secret* so it could mean a new type or not.



    My thoughts:
    • It looks adorable.
    • Looks like it loves bow ties.
    • Possibly a Light Type... it doesn't show many features of any other known typing besides normal.
    • Normal Type Eeveelution is quite possible.

    Not sure if they would be adding a new type, Light has been an idea ever since Dark was added.

    Thinking it could be a combo, like Psychic/Water. Although a Blissey like type could be cool.

    Which if anything, there would possibly be another new Eevee as well. Evolutions are usually added in pairs.

    Too cutesy for me.

    Flying type, I'm calling it. I think it resembles Skyla in a way. (who is of course a flying gym leader)

    There is actually a chance of it being a Light Type.
    People are suggesting that Xerneas is as well, do to it's antlers being the visible light spectrum, and as it was surrounded by light in the trailer.
    Having a new Eeveelution to showcase it would make sense.

    If Xerneas introduced a new type wouldn't that mean Yveltal would pretty much have to be a new type as well? That being said, I personally just can't see them bringing out new types this far into the series... It would be neat if they did though

    New types could be added, but that may mean X & Y might be new type heavy and I don't think GameFreaks would water down a new type like that.

    Generation Two introduced Dark and Steel typing and with that a Dark Type Eeveelution. Why can't the same happen with a Light Type in Generation Six?

    The colouring reminds me of Milotic.

    I'm not sure I'm a fan. It's kind of girly.
    It could be that this is in fact a female only eeveelution, and the corresponding addition will be male.

    X and Y are not only dimensional references, but also chromosomal.

    However, as Eevee is 87.5% male, I feel this is unlikely.

    It was just said we don't see it happening, not that it wouldn't. I believe Gen II brought 6 Dark, 3 Steel types, and added Steel typing to Magnemite and Magneton.

    My reason for thinking it is not a new type is, that people have been yelling for a Light type since 1999 when Gold and Silver were released with the Dark type. I mean if it has only taken them 14 years and 4 generations to finally add it, that would be awesome.


    And Tani, I could so see a female only Eeveelution. Being that female Eevees are considered a rarity with only a 12.5% chance to happen, that could totally be a hidden treat.

    I'm guessing its a flying evolution of Eevee. I can understand not wanted to give cute little Eevee a Rock, Ground or Steel typing, but why not Flying? I know it doesn't have wings, but neither does Shaymin in its sky form. I would be unique to see a singular Flying type as all the others are dual type.
